The restaurant wasn't busy at 6:30pm but it soon filled up and was not too noisy. We were a group of 2 couples and it was the first time our friends had eaten there. We were all impressed by the food which was beautifully presented. I had the Confit Duck and it was cooked to perfection - simply devine.

The food is on the pricey side but is definitely worth the money.

Really nice food. Great service and a good atmosphere. Kids menu as well - the pizza was a hit. Fish of the day was delicious. Good reports too on the chicken breast and seafood marinara. Great choice

Service: 4/5
Ambience: 5/5
Value: 4/5
Food: 5/5

The wait staff were accommodating (we didnt reserve a table). Very friendly. Knowledgeable and professional. Marked down due to wait times. But the service made up for that.

Value....prices were on the steep side. The ambience didnt justify the prices of the food...but the food was VERY good.
Mains were $35-$40
Desserts around $15 each

Dish 1: Pan seared salmon with rosemary roast potatoes, beans, broccolini, caramalised carrot and pan friend eggplant. All with a lemon sode sauce. Mouth watering! It is as good as it sounds!!! Salmon was a pretty big steak.

Dish 2: Beef briskit Risotto. Texture and consistency was spot on for a risotto. Deliciously tangy and very filling.

Dessert 1: Tirumasu...really really good.
Dessert 2: Sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce with custard. The pudding had a weird almost lumpy consistency...i think they added nuts...but they were soggy. Not a fan. But the sauce was amaaaaaaaaazing.

My wife and I had long been lamenting there was no specialist Seafood restaurant in New Plymouth - until we discovered Bella Vita's seafood platter and seafood chowder. Just awesome and as good as we've enjoyed anywhere here or overseas. Staff were very helpful and overall an enjoyable experience.
