The heart of La Vita e Bella’s Italian bistro menu is freshness and seasonality. Pastas, sauces, dressings and focaccia bread are prepared in-house everyday. La Vita fills three rooms of a 1910-era Dafoe Terrace building. The bistro’s exposed timber beams and exposed brick walls, dressed up with fine linens,create a sophisticated atmosphere.

La Vita e Bella’s executive chef, Douglas Stassi layers each dish with distinctive flavours rooted in classic Italian cuisine. From casual lunches to intimate dinners, La Vita is a place for leisurely meetings with colleagues and to raise a glass to toast all of life’s celebrations.
