Description: WELCOME TO BELLA VITA RISTORANTE!We desire and dream about our food, attaching it to distant memories of childhood, friends, loved ones and family. We know that a wonderful meal is not about the food and drink we consume; it is a poignant experience bonding us to it eternally.Bella Vita Ristorante is an authentic and down-to-earth place, where the mouth-watering Italian and Irish cuisine heightens the informal ambience, the culinary inspired dishes and the thoughtfully selected wine list. Whether a guest prefers the rustic and cosy dining room or the amorous candle lit courtyard area, it is a gathering spot for those who want to revive their much-loved memories or create new ones.Situated in historic Kenmare in County Kerry in the South West of Ireland, Bella Vita Ristorante features Irish/Italian comfort food reborn as contemporary takes on classics prepared to order by our chefs, one of whom hails from Rimini in Italy.The new owners describe their acquisition of number 18 as a dream becoming a reality. They are simply passionate about fresh, authentic, Italian food and want to share their passion with you.

We noticed Bella Vita was busy on the first night of our stay in Kenmare. We tried to get a table but the delay was too long so we booked it the following morning for that evening. We really enjoyed it. As the weather was nice we opted for a table outdoor at the rear on the decking which was lovely. Our food was superb and I'd really recommend the meatballs. The pizzas were great too. It was the nicest Italian restaurant I've been in.

Ate here on the 3rd night or my visit to Kenmare and have to say enjoyed this meal the best. Called in with no booking but this was not a problem and was seated immediately. My partner and I had both starters and main course and the only reason we didn't have dessert was we had no room! For starters we ha the bruschetta and ravioli and mains was the irish pizza! and spaghetti carbonara and it was clean plates all round. The restraunt had a lovely relaxed atmosphere, not like the restraunt we had been in the previous night. Would highly recommend here and if back in Kenmare will definitely be back here again .

Husband had the Chicken Risotto which was the best meal of all of ours. Servers were attentive, red wine was good. We've had better pizza in the states but it certainly wasn't bad. Good choice for a hungry family with teens.

We visited with family including 3 well behaved grandchildren but we were not impressed with either the welcome by the owner, the service or the food. We had a variety of dishes across the board & afraid that they were all disappointing.
Our previous visit was much better so we may give it another chance.
