We were taken to this restaurant by someone who had "an in"; otherwise, we most likely wouldn't have had the chance to try it. While the food was homemade Italian and it was very good; overall, the rudeness and disrespect of the people who either work there or own the establishment was beyond incredible. Obviously, they must have a regular... More

This restaurant one of the top Italian restaurants in Greensburg, PA. Quality food at a very reasonable price. Reservations highly recommended ( I would say required).

Fantastic food Veal with sweet peppers is unbelievable. Chicken Picatta it is the signature dish. Try the Italian eggroll.

Some of the best food I have eaten in a long time. Amazing service - no nonsense - just really really good food, and a lot of it. Salads are super fresh, food is excellent home style, and the seating is family style. Can't wait to go again! (Not for the lifted-pinky-finger crowd.)

A very different experience from most Italian restaurants, La Vita asks its customers to order before seeing a menu. I guess you can order what ever you want and see if the cook will make it. Calling ahead of time gives very little information. We had heard it was so great, so we four ordered 4 dinners and 2 appetizers... More

Most likely the best Italian food in the US. Everything is homemade and made to order. Not your typical restaurant experience. Don't ask for a menu, just ask what she has and I guarantee it'll be amazing.

I have been there a half dozen times and every time the meal has been outstanding. Little bit of a unique place, best to call ahead if you have a group and plan out your meal. Don't expect an even somewhat decorative dining room, just the best food in town! Also, it is BYOB.

This restaurant is such a hidden gem! My daughter and I decided to try it out after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. It is definitely a dining experience so don't be in a hurry. It's also a BYOB so you have plenty of time for great conversation and quality time. We started our meal with... More

We visited La Vita's with friends who had been there before, and who had mentioned to us that the owner was a bit feisty. Armed with this knowledge, we arrived at our reserved time and were seated; we expected a brusque reception and brisk but indifferent service. What we received was a delightful evening with a clearly busy but charming... More
