The food is actually quite good. Amil the cook prepares each meal one at a time. I had the chicken cacciatore with green peppers that reminded me of little Italy. My wife had clams with shrimp and vodka sauce that was out of this world. Amil will custom make dishes for you. Order the garlic bread. Service very good. Second time having dinner there. The menu is quite extensive. A really traditional Family restaurant.

Loved the evening at Bello Vita! The service was exceptional - friendly smiles, warmth, hospitality including a visit from multiple members of the staff to check-in at various times throughout the meal. After a full day of hiking, we came in for dinner with big appetites and were not in the least bit disappointed! Very affordable, rich meal with outstanding flavor and perfect balance of sauces, garlic, and butter.
The garlic bread is AMAZING, do not cheat yourself and overlook ordering this staple! Will visit again without reservation when in the region again.

Since our favorite Italian restaurant closed, we have been searching for a replacement. This may be it. We had the Calzones. They were so huge, I could only eat half. I had the rest for lunch the next day. Service was excellent. Staff very friendly and helpful. Wine is available and they are not stingy about pouring it. We will definitely go back to try some other dishes. It sits back from the road and doesn't seem too busy. It is well worth a visit.

What a hidden gem! If you are anywhere in the area, you must stop here to eat. The best Italian food I have eaten at a restaurant. The marinara sauce was superb. Started with hot, fresh, perfect bread. Then came salad with homemade dressings - blue cheese, honey mustard and balsamic vinaigrette made with fresh spices. We had eggplant parmigiana, eggplant rollatini, manicotti and penne vodka. Great service ..... awesome experience.

The pizza was great and the service was just as good. This restaurant has all of the traditional italian dishes but I always stick with the pizza. Very prompt service and great food.
