We had two wonderful dinners at La Bella Vita. Chicken Marsala and Chicken Piccata the first night, Fettucini Alfredo and the Tri-Filet meal the 2nd night. Just wonderful! The presentation was always lovely. The portions were just right. We also had mushroom risotta (yum) and Tuscan salad - not on the menu but ask for it. Delicious! The ambience is wonderful and Trevor (our waiter both evenings) was charming, accommodating, courteous and attentive. He remembered us from two evenings prior. Thank you! (P.S. try the Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake - delicious!).

Paper table tops were the only drawback tonight. Eric the chef did a great job. Scallops veal pasta all exceptional. Waitress didn't know the chefs name but was very friendly so I'll let that slip!

We started with appetizers; we had two the scallops with prosciutto and the eggplant. Both were excellent but portion size for price was small. The scallops were the small ones and there were only 4.

For entrees we had the Veal Scallopini and Fettucini Alfredo. Both were delicious, well presented and right sized. At another point we had the pizza for lunch and it was exceptional. The only flaws were, service could be really slow - which most of the time was not a problem because we were relaxing - but there were a few times when we needed to get onto our next event and it was irritating. Also we found the drink prices quite high. My recommendation: Add wheat breads for both pre-dinner bread and pizza dough options.

This was a girls night out! The ice bar was a great hit, other than being very cold! We had an excellent dinner at La Bella Vita. Chris was our waiter for the evening and he was excellent also!
Thanks for putting up with us!

We stayed at the Samoset because of the Ice Bar. The place was packed. Which is really nice to see in the middle of winter on a extremely cold night. We had one drink outside and decided it was too cold so we went to eat at the restaurant. It was going to be a 2 hour wait! But Phil actually apologized and was very nice. So we hung out by the wood fired pizza oven and eventually got two seats. Casey was our server and what a great guy. The pizza we had was delicious. The service from everyone at the Resort was excellent. It made the stay very enjoyable and will likely bring us back again. We did have the breakfast buffet the next morning and it was amazing all the items you could get. Ate so much we skipped lunch.
