"La Bella Vita is a quaint family owned restaurant in Little Italy on Mulberry Street. The food was fantastic and our waiter was extremely friendly. They offer their full dinner menu for lunch, but change the portion to half the size and also half the price. The chicken parm and the homemade lasagna were both amazing and highly recommended. Service was fast during lunch on Saturday."

"Small place and very casual. Food prep and presentation competent. After asking our waiter to turn down the loud clichéd Italian music, it was turned up after 10 minutes. I wouldn't rush back, we were able to get a table for 6 at 6pm the same day."

"The menu has a nice selection however my table tried 3 different things and none of us really LOVED any of it. I think the calamari was the best part. My meal the spaghetti with olive oil and garlic was very bland. I got a side of meatballs and they were so heavy, made with just ground beef. The wait staff was friendly but the runner/bus boy had a strange demeanor. It couldn't have hurt for him to smile. I wouldn't go back here if I were in town."

"Right on Mulberry Street, in the heart of Little Italy, an authentic place that was not overcrowded. We chose this spot to meet with friends coming in from different locations and all agreed it was a great find! I had a special with seafood which could have fed all 6 of us! It was fingerlicking good! Half lobster, fresh cherry stones, shrimp, and squid over risotto. Makes me want to go back right now! The regular menu and other specials had something for everybody. I don't recall if they serve gluten free pasta. We solved it by having a marsala dish and have vegetables instead of pasta. Simple though good wine list with different grapes and regions represented. The service was attentive and not crowded. Wait staff kept an eye on us but didn't ask us every 2 minutes if we were OK. That's how I like it."

"We found this restaurant using open table and we were not disappointed. We brought our relatives from Rome to this spot to show them Little Italy and they really enjoyed themselves. Their English is not very good so it was great that most of the staff was able to speak to them in Italian and made them feel at home. Really great service and the portions were very generous. We left completely satisfied and very happy with our decision. We'd definitely return next time we're in NYC.
thanks guys!"

"Greeted warmly on arrival and seated immediately. Ordered chicken Bella Vita and disappointed to find a very thin piece of boneless chicken breast with sparse prosciutto and mozzarella cheese. Was expecting thicker breast that was stuffed, not layered. Had Bella Vita salad and this too was disappointing for the price.
All in all, there are so many options on Mulberry St that next time we will try somewhere else.

"This restaurant is by far the best Italian restaurant in little Italy possibly NYC. The service is 5 stars, the food is delicious, they are very welcoming and feel like a little town restaurant, but the ambiance is very nice and higher end."

"I have been to the restaurant once before in February. We came back in June because we enjoyed it so much. The food is all fresh and homemade. The staff is welcoming and friendly. The Moscato wine was deligjtful as well. The only thing is that night there was a large family with children next to us that were being loud and disruptive, but that's not in the restaurant's control. Would come back again next time I'm in the city."

"The location was perfect right in the middle of little Italy, but the food was average at best. More disappointing however was the costumer service. Maybe because we went around 10pm, but the entire staff was unwelcoming and seemed as though they didn't want us there. If you have a chance to go somewhere else take my advice this place is a let down!"

"The servers were very attentive. We had 12 people and it went really smooth. If what you want isn't on the menu, they will make it for you. For those who couldn't decide between two things to order, they brought them some of each. Price was good. Bill came to $350.00. That included apps,dinner, and 2 bottles of wine. Calamari was ok, everyone's dinner was really good. Definetly worth trying. We had a nice experience."

"WE MADE A RESERVATION A WEEK BEFORE FOR 12 ADULTS AND A HIGH CHAIR. THIS PLACE IS WAY TOO SMALL FOR THAT MANY PEOPLE AT ONE TABLE. THE WAITER GAVE US 10 ROLLS FOR OUR TABLE SO WE ASKED FOR MORE AND THEY DIDNT BRING IT UNTIL WE ASKED AGAIN TWICE....SERVICE WAS OK AS WAS FOOD, PORTIONS WERE SMALL FOR THE PRICE. VERY SMALL DINING AREA .... WOULD NOT RECOMMEND OR GO THERE AGAIN."
