It was nice as just outside there was a little park the 2 6 year olds could play in. The food was exquisite and the service impeeccable. Well worth a visit

Our family has been visiting Bella Vita for 8 years, and always visit at least once during our regular trips to our house in Carvoeiro. This restaurant is without doubt one of the best Italian (with a hint of Portuguese) restaurants you will ever experience. The decor may not be to everyone's taste, but the food certainly will be. Fresh pasta, excellent sauces, good portion size and very skilled cooking from Andrea and his small brigade. The sign of a great chef - if there are any Italian favourites that you don't see on the menu but would like, just ask and the chances are as with my veal Milanese recently they will be able to produce it and ensure it is top quality. I even asked for the tomato sauce with the spaghetti to be a little spicy, and it was delivered to perfection.

Jose, Luis and Pedro deliver friendly and efficient service, and it may be a little slow if the restaurant is full - but you are on holiday so chill out and have another glass of wine!
As a family eating on our own or with the many friends we have taken to Bella Vita over the years, we have never left feeling hungry or disappointed.

Enjoy!

We decided to book having seen the good reviews on TripAdvisor and phoned at short notice and they managed to fit us in with a good table. On arrival impressions were good, drinks and bread came promptly and then as the restaurant filled it became apparent that the staff and kitchens were very over stretched. Two hours after sitting down our main courses still had not come... We therefore left as it was clear our food wasn't going to come any time soon. We paid the bill for what we had had - €85 for drinks and starters for a family of 4! We left the Bella Vita at 10pm, with two hungry teenagers, thoroughly disappointed.

We go to the Carvoeiro area every year, now 14 years. Bella Vita is simply the best. Worth the 5 minute spin out to Clube Atlantico. It would be worthy of a Michelin star if it was in London. Fabulous staff and very family friendly without being that type of place. Simply brilliant.
