Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My Boo and I were in the El Nido area and walking the beach looking for dinner. We walked up on Bella Vita and saw a good crowd. We put our name on the list and they served us drinks while we waited. Once we were seated, we ordered the burrata and then split a pizza. The food was very good and we left full. This is a great spot for dinner and drinks.

A lovely little place by the water, with a great view of the sunset. Pizzas were actually decent at an intentional level. Great negroni's too made for a lovely night. Had the Tartufata which I'd recommend.

Amazing food, music, view and vibe! 10 out of 10. We had fries, foccaccia and two different pizzas (truffle and burratina). I think the best puzza we’ve ever had. Fries were nothing special and the foccacia was actually just a pizza with Rosemary, but delicious.

If you are looking for a change in the world of rice and chicken, go here. This wonderful Italian restaurant specializes in real Italian pizza, but also has proven skills when it comes to pasta, bruschetta and even their wine was respectable. And ofcourse great view. Book a table ahead if you want sunset table

Awesome. El Nido's Beachfront Paradise Bella Vita, nestled on the shores of El Nido, is an Italian haven offering an unforgettable dining experience. The moment you step onto the soft sand and take in the panoramic sunset views, you'll be transported to a world of relaxation and culinary delights. The menu is a love letter to Italian cuisine, featuring fresh, local ingredients and traditional recipes. We devoured pizzas topped with the most flavorful combinations, and the homemade pasta dishes were cooked to perfection, each bite bursting with taste. Every dish felt like a labor of love, prepared with passion and presented beautifully. But Bella Vita's charm extends beyond the food. The gentle waves lapping at the shore create a soothing soundtrack, while the warm sea breeze carries the scent of the ocean. The friendly staff, always attentive and eager to recommend dishes, adds to the welcoming atmosphere. Whether you're seeking a romantic dinner for two or a fun night out with friends, Bella Vita is the perfect spot. It's more than just a restaurant; it's a chance to unwind, savor delicious Italian fare, and witness the magic of a tropical sunset. We highly recommend adding Bella Vita to your El Nido itinerary – it's an experience you won't forget!

We found the restaurant through Trip Advisor as it’s tucked away at the end of a side road and the effort of finding it was well worthwhile. The location is great with amazing views over the beach and water. The staff were friendly and helpful. It has a great rustic feel and critically the food was delicious. Real Italian food just minutes from the centre or El Nido. If I was to pick one small improvement, they could do with a couple of ceiling fans for days when there’s no breeze. Otherwise great and can strongly recommend.

A true Italian pizza at El Nido! I'm Italian and I took the calzone:I swear you don't feel like being in Philippines. Ingredients are top and taste as well. A note for the kindness and sympathy at the waiter Anjo.

Awesome food and great view right on the beach. Staff are warm and friendly and go out of their way to ensure you have great meal. Food was exceptional and beer ice cold.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone!!! The food tasted very good and the service was good as well but it was not worth it for the consequences! I was there with 3 other people and we all got sick just the night after we ate there. We got food poisoning which led to us throwing up and having diarrhea the whole night and the day after we ate there. Not ONLY that we got food poisoning but also that they put extra stuff on the bill that we did not order which is in my opinion very unprofessional! After looking at some of the other reviews on Bella Vita I saw that other also brought up that they got sick from eating there so in that case, it is very common that the food is not well made!

Gorgeous sunset viewing spot with good food and great ambience. Came here twice and both time were met with unfriendly and officious staff. I guess being such a popular spot for sunsets they feel they don't need to impress anyone or maybe they just dont care.
