LaBella Vita is a good restaurant with good food. A few years ago they remodeled and the ambiance with pizza oven and conversation areas around fireplaces is quite cozy yet upscale -- no matter what the weather. Can be a little pricey. The views to Penobscot Bay are magnificent and the outdoor seating and outdoor fire pits are great on... More

OK, it's the Samoset Resort restaurant and you're skeptical of hotel dining. Don't be. A great menu. Nice salads, good pizza. Nicely crafted drinks and good wine. Give it a try

I had several meals here during my stay here. Everything I had was so good! I had the pizza, the stuffed haddock with crab and lobster and the meatball panini which I absolutely loved! They have a great wine selection and good mixed drinks. The staff here is great and the ambiance makes it even better!

We enjoyed a delicious meal at La Bella Vita for a company dinner. The menu was very extensive and our waitress, Allie made us want to order one of everything. When the decisions were made, no one was disappointed- the food was absolutely delicious. This restaurant is very clean and if you want top notch service with a smile, ask... More

We were at La Bella Vita May 1 for a special dinner out. Due to our child's ongoing cancer treatment being able to go out is rare. Since we're "foodies" this is especially un-fun and we were very hopeful to have a good time. We asked for a table away from crowds and a little special if possible. The staff... More

This upscale restaurant nestled in the Samoset resort offers an excellent fine dining choice. The food and service are exceptional and the atmosphere is pleasant overlooking the ocean side golf course. The gnocchi appetizer is amazing as is their signature fish stew. Bon apetit!

It's become tradition. After we settle our things in the timeshare unit we head to the Enoteca Lounge for drinks and appetizers. They e never failed us yet. The drinks are excellent and the appetizers are terrific. We particularly love the Antipasto Della Casa, a beautiful platter of first rate means, cheeses and accompanying garnishes. The 10" Sicilain Pizza is... More

We enjoyed the beautiful views from our restaurant at the Samoset Resort. We had a reservation so we were seated quickly. Our server could have been faster taking our order, bringing water and bread. Both of us ordered Veal Scallopini. The veal was very tender but the sauce had little flavor. For dessert we ordered blueberry pie with gelato. That... More

We've eaten here several times. The buffet on special occasions such as Easter is wonderful. A romantic dinner for two - yes. A large table for nine for breakfast in a private dining room - lovely. Waitstaff is attentive and are helpful with any food sensitivities (in our case Celiac Disease). The mushroom risotto was my most recent favorite dish!
