Went there for dinner with great expectations and was thoroughly disappointed. High prices, less than average food and slow service – very bad choice. Not much else to say.

Typically, when you see an Italian restaurant that exists in northern New England ..... you think "Olive Garden-esque" at best. La Bella Vita was a great surprise of regional Italian cuisine, using lots of fresh local ingredients (summer) and exceptional homemade pastas, etc. A great...More

This was our 3rd trip to the Samoset in 2 years, and overall we have had very good food and experiences at the restaurant. The fare is somewhat standard/solid--not foodie/creative--but you can't beat the views and the servers are always pleasant and attentive. Suggestions: --at...More

The food was ordinary. Nothing to rave about, but it is not ugly. Were it not for the service I would give it an average rating. I think we were on the "pay no mind" list. The waitress did her best to ignore us. We...More

It doesn't seem to matter whether we go for the Sunday brunch, breakfast, lunch, dinner or fireside drinks and snacks, certain things remain constant: exceptional food; friendly, courteous and professional service (particularly from Ally); sensational atmosphere; and, of course ... that view.
