First time at this restaurant. The food is authentic Italian. The Miso salad is very good but plan to split with someone. Both Lasagna and Carbonara were amazing. The staff works in teams so we were well cared for. Great Belltown find.

Amazing food and very reasonably priced! We had the crab ravioli - yum, yum, yum! Plenty of crab and homemade ravioli, naturally. The staff are very friendly. They also have a fantastic wine selection.

At La Vita E Bella we provide authentic Italian food made with homemade sauces and pasta. We offer many seafood dishes inspired by our Sicilian roots and fresh Seattle offerings. Thin pizzas are baked fresh for our mouthwatering customers. We have a large wine selection and many antipasto platters (appetizers) that are perfect for a quick drink and snack on the go. With a live accordion player, our restaurant has a romantic atmosphere and welcoming environment ideal for locals and tourists alike. Owner Giuseppe Forte strives to offer affordable cuisine that pops with flavor and value. He personally buys the groceries several times a week to insure the best products, allowing prices to remain low and fair for our customers. If you prefer, you can always call 206-441-5322 for an amazing meal TO GO!
