My husband and I recently visited this restaurant for a late breakfast / brunch. The place has a nice interior, is clean and in the centre of Kenmare village. It was a lovely day it was nice to be seated by the bright window watching all the passers-by.

I found the menu to have a great offering with slime unique dishes, my husband ordered 'the skillet' combo of potatoes, onion, cheese and bacon amongst other delights. I went for the 'Bella Vita french toast' with bacon and mayple syrup. Both dishes left a smile on lour face and a happy tummy. There was good coffee and service was fast and polite.

All in all, a lovely meal in a lovely eatery.

We ate here twice during our week in Kenmare. That probably says it all, but for the sake of completeness...
We had early evening meals here on each occasion. The menu is straightforward Italian (essentially pizzas and pastas). The volume of food was good, and the flavours very reminiscent of Italy.
The wines we tried were good and the atmosphere was excellent with the tables close to each other.

We found the staff friendly, busy and efficient. Given the throughput, it would be as well to book. Surprising few seemed to book and we saw many, arriving after 7pm, turned away. Child friendly, with also with covered and heated al fresco dining out the back.
Bela Vita is on Henry Street, just across from Packies. The bill for four came in just below €100 and yes, we would recommend it.

Great breakfast menu something to suit all and really good value.
The full Irish breakfast was amazing to be honest I am not one for fried breakfasts but I have to say that this is one of the best full Irish breakfasts I have ever had. Atmosphere was great as we sat out in the garden in the sunshine, really worth a visit for breakfast.
