Customer service at it's best.
Delicious food, would highly recommend to anybody.
Always heaving a definite sign that the food is good. Smacking lips and happy murmurs are always indicative of this two. Furthermore they have extended to add a bar for waiting customers. The menus is lovely and simple and really affordable for this type of cuisine. I have found that many Italians will charge a fortune for what is essentially tomatoes and pasta.
Comfort, excellent service and Moorish food that will fill you to the brim with garlic and cream and what's more you can have a non-wheat version of pasta too. I know where I'm taking my half Italian, wheat-intolerant (yes this is utterly harrowing for her) friend to for said persons birthday.
I have been several times to La Bella Vita and have loved it every time. It is getting a little expensive but very delicious food.
When it is a birthday, the staff really put the effort in to sing happy birthday and you can hear it lots of times for other people in the evening.
The service is good and the food always comes hot and tastes fantastic.
I like the decor and the brown leather chairs are very comfortable. I would go as much as possible as I love it there.
I love this place. We go twice a year (as we now live in Teesside so is a 120 mile round trip) and I am always suprised that the staff remember us.
The setting is lovely like a bistro you can dress up or dress down and you still feel comfortable.
The staff are friendly and attentive and never rush you.
The food is excellent, real properly cooked pasta and meat dishes in lovely sauces (don't forget you have to order your veggies seperately) - I could eat here all the time if I lived closer and didn't care about my weight as the sauces are rich and the desserts - wow!
I can't recommend this place enough.
There is something to be said for a good Italian restaurant and I always feel it is a great place to take the family and know that however quirky their tastes are, they'll all find something. Italians are the future for the Wharton clan and La Belle Vita fits the bill.
It isn't the biggest place on earth but it certainly looks nice. My secret penchant is for purple and they have more than a splash of that inside. As always we start off the night with a cheeky beverage and it is always a good measure on how well my mothers campari is mixed as to whether we'll be returning. Thankfully, it met with the ma seal of approval.
Now the food. Classic Italian yum fest with no great surprises but that is exactly what I wanted. Lovely starters, fantastic bread and we're away.
I feel plain wrong if I don't have a pizza for a main and sometimes I'm a girl of simple needs (some would say just simple). So a Margerita does the trick and ticks all the right boxes. The pasta also goes down well in the group and you can't moan at the well cooked meat and nice sauces.
They also do a Sunday lunch special which is good value for money. It isn't expensive too and the wine list is more than ample. My only gripe is that maybe they could've had a few more Italian ones in the mix but hey who's counting.
Having visited La Bella Vita on several occasions, I thought it only fair that I share this little diamond of a restaurant with other Yelpers!
This is great Italian restaurant based on the main street in Garforth. Its always chocka block with people and the atmosphere is great so make sure you book first for Friday and Saturday nights. The pizzas are really tasty!
La Bella Vita is a great restaurant, but it's usually rather busy. It's well located at the bottom of Main Street, and has pleasant staff that are happy to help, and spend time going over the menu.
Their pizzas are fantastic, really good quality and not overpriced. The food is all cooked well, you don't have to wait too long to get your meal.
This a great friendly Italian Restaurant with well priced fantastic food, great service and very child friendly. Food is fantastic and service is normally great but special occasions (Mothers Day) are in very high demand. A lively atmosphere late evening ensures a fun evening for younger couples. Great for families early evening and even supply colouring for children. Definitely a Favourite! 5*
