The service was incredible and the atmosphere delightful. Having had mussels in an Irish pub in garlic cream sauce, which was OK, I ordered them again here, in a garlic... More

Surprised my boyfriend with a dinner here, as he loves Italian food. They seated us upstairs which only has 4 tables which made it very cosy and private. Good portions and decent food. I loved my salmon pasta and carpaccio. But the the boyfriend thought the bruschetta and bolognese was average. For his birthday I asked them to put a... More

Went there last week on a recommendation. Not disappointed. Amazing food. Took me back to my honeymoon in Italy. The waiter was extremely attentive and friendly. Do not miss out on this treasure in Westport.

Popped into La Bella Vita for dinner our last evening in Westport .. happy that we did! Early enough to take advantage of the 19E Early Bird .. fabulous calamari, salad, and bruschetta. Dinners were the pesto, gnocchi, carbonara, and the bolognese ... tiramisu for dessert. Service was absolutely phenomenal and the hard-to-find bottle of Sardinian white was a win.
