After getting home from a trip to Italy, I was missing the great food and warm, inviting atmosphere that the restaurants over there all seemed to possess. La Vita E' Bella caught my eye immediately, from the outdoor seating to the Italian signage, and reminded...More

Amazing food and very reasonably priced! We had the crab ravioli - yum, yum, yum! Plenty of crab and homemade ravioli, naturally. The staff are very friendly. They also have a fantastic wine selection.

Excellent pasta dishes. Enjoyed the Gnocchi and Rigatoni with mushrooms and sausage. Finished off a great afternoon visiting the Seattle city center.

This restaurant is quaint and has good pizza. The salads are pretty good too. I would stick with these. The service was slow and the other entrees were "cold" upon arrival as if they sat in the kitchen for a while.

My wife and I are in Seattle for a little vacation. We love Italian food and if it can be had along with feeling like you are in Italy, that's all the better. I am rating La Vita E' Bella 5 for the total experience....More

We stumbled upon this restaurant while walking around downtown Seattle, and it was a delightful find. Our waiter couldn't have been friendlier, more patient (since we were waiting for someone to join us) or more helpful, and his suggestions delivered. All six of us ordered...More

At La Vita E Bella we provide authentic Italian food made with homemade sauces and pasta. We offer many seafood dishes inspired by our Sicilian roots and fresh Seattle offerings. Thin pizzas are baked fresh for our mouthwatering customers. We have a large wine selection and many antipasto platters (appetizers) that are perfect for a quick drink and snack on the go. With a live accordion player, our restaurant has a romantic atmosphere and welcoming environment ideal for locals and tourists alike. Owner Giuseppe Forte strives to offer affordable cuisine that pops with flavor and value. He personally buys the groceries several times a week to insure the best products, allowing prices to remain low and fair for our customers. If you prefer, you can always call 206-441-5322 for an amazing meal TO GO!
