Really disappointing, food was not good. Garlic bread I received was full of oil and the pasta dishes were so bland, it was like a tin of tomatoes poured onto pasta. Would not go back here again for food. Staff were very friendly tho.

Had a lovely dinner for 2 in La Bella Vita last night. Everything was excellent, from the food to the staff, to the atmosphere. It was cosy, homely and the staff were extremely friendly. The food was beautiful and we didn't leave an empty plate between us. Planning our next trip already. Thanks!

The best Italian food I have eaten in a long time. Best restaurant in Westport! The food, Service and waiting staff were on the mark. I Would highly recommend.

Found this place on our last night in Westport in September 2016. Fed up with pub grub we wanted something different. Have travelled the length of Italy but this is one of the best Italian meals I've ever had, (up there with Wine Dark House in Positano). Chef was on top form that night. Staff were lovely, we wondered in... More
