This has alright food, not bad. The service was ok, food ok but not something I would rave about. As far as Italian food goes I like sauce that is not sweet. This restaurant serves sweetish sauce. My husband had chicken parmigiana and I had spaghetti in neat sauce, both not bad. There must be better Italian food around here,... More

The food was very mediocre and not authentic Italian-left my jacket at the restaurant. Next day I called the owner and he promised to send to me-I would pay. Called 2 more times but no jacket! Stay away from this place!

I took 3 co-workers there as we were in the area together. We were looking for some good Italian fare. When we walked in I had a hunch this was not going to be what was expected. We were the only customers in the restaurant the entire time. Each time the waiter would come to our table he was followed... More

My wife and I always make a point to dine at Vita Felice on our way to or from South Carolina during our fall vacation. The food and service at Vita Felice are excellent and it is located right off I95 near many hotels. Manager Gilberto Barahona is a cordial host.

Greeted warmly by the owner and seated comfortably in an empty dining room on a Friday night...this restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We ordered Veal Piccata, Veal Parmigiana and Chicken parmigiana. The meal was delicious. Obvious it was all homemade. Very attentive to the three of us.

Like a lot of people that have reviewed the restaurant, my wife and I were staying at a nearby hotel and the hotel clerk suggested Vita Felice. We were not disappointed. Its a family run restaurant that provides a good meal. We will be back when we are in Fredericksburg!!

We asked our hotel for a restaurant recommendation and this was suggested. The location didn't look promising - in an almost deserted car park next to a cheap supermarket - and there was only 1 other couple in but we decided to risk it. And it was worth the risk. This was the nicest spaghetti vongole I've had in ages.... More

We loved that this little restaurant was family owned and offered a full menu of options form appetizers, including rarely found grilled calamari, Their secret is offering a range of items that can all be made from a few basic ingredients--and they use good fresh ones! My husband had a pasta arrabiatea--excellent, and I had the eggplant parm. Very good.... More

Like a number of reviewers I was travelling the I-95 corridor and stopped in Fredericksburg. It was between Italian and Mexican. I'm so very done with Mexican so I opted for Italian. Note to self - when ethnic food is done poorly opt for the least expensive, in this case the Mexican should have won out! The service was friendly... More

Recommended by the hotel. Excellent dinners: veal picata, veal Marsala and gnocchi with creamy pesto sauce. We started with two salads, warm bread and a lively bottle of Chianti. Perfect service, excellent food. We may have to always include a stop in Fredericksberg - just to enjoy dinner at this restaurant!
