Always a pleasure to eat at the Vita Bella. The food, service and atmosphere is excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful. A suited parking attendant organises the car park and escorts you to the entrance. A truly memorable experience.

The service here is second to none. The owner is friendly and attentive, but not over bearing. The team around him are well mannered and friendly. Everyone in our group loved their meals and were happy with the prices. We’ll be back for sure.More
