Awesome. El Nido's Beachfront Paradise Bella Vita, nestled on the shores of El Nido, is an Italian haven offering an unforgettable dining experience. The moment you step onto the soft sand and take in the panoramic sunset views, you'll be transported to a world of...relaxation and culinary delights. The menu is a love letter to Italian cuisine, featuring fresh, local ingredients and traditional recipes. We devoured pizzas topped with the most flavorful combinations, and the homemade pasta dishes were cooked to perfection, each bite bursting with taste. Every dish felt like a labor of love, prepared with passion and presented beautifully. But Bella Vita's charm extends beyond the food. The gentle waves lapping at the shore create a soothing soundtrack, while the warm sea breeze carries the scent of the ocean. The friendly staff, always attentive and eager to recommend dishes, adds to the welcoming atmosphere. Whether you're seeking a romantic dinner for two or a fun night out with friends, Bella Vita is the perfect spot. It's more than just a restaurant; it's a chance to unwind, savor delicious Italian fare, and witness the magic of a tropical sunset. We highly recommend adding Bella Vita to your El Nido itinerary – it's an experience you won't forget!More

We found the restaurant through Trip Advisor as it’s tucked away at the end of a side road and the effort of finding it was well worthwhile. The location is great with amazing views over the beach and water. The staff were friendly and helpful....It has a great rustic feel and critically the food was delicious. Real Italian food just minutes from the centre or El Nido. If I was to pick one small improvement, they could do with a couple of ceiling fans for days when there’s no breeze. Otherwise great and can strongly recommend.More

A true Italian pizza at El Nido! I'm Italian and I took the calzone:I swear you don't feel like being in Philippines. Ingredients are top and taste as well. A note for the kindness and sympathy at the waiter Anjo.

Awesome food and great view right on the beach. Staff are warm and friendly and go out of their way to ensure you have great meal. Food was exceptional and beer ice cold.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone!!! The food tasted very good and the service was good as well but it was not worth it for the consequences! I was there with 3 other people and we all got sick just the night after...we ate there. We got food poisoning which led to us throwing up and having diarrhea the whole night and the day after we ate there. Not ONLY that we got food poisoning but also that they put extra stuff on the bill that we did not order which is in my opinion very unprofessional! After looking at some of the other reviews on Bella Vita I saw that other also brought up that they got sick from eating there so in that case, it is very common that the food is not well made!More

Gorgeous sunset viewing spot with good food and great ambience. Came here twice and both time were met with unfriendly and officious staff. I guess being such a popular spot for sunsets they feel they don't need to impress anyone or maybe they just dont...care.More

The best carbonara I had in my life I ate a lot Brilliant staff and lovely beachview. We spent a fantastic evening in this restaurant and it has became our favourite restaurant in El Nido. We have tried almost everything apart from breakfast and everything...was delicious. Our favourite was passionfruit mojito and carbonara pasta. Highly recommend this lovely restaurantMore

Based on the reviews I read, we went here to celebrate a birthday, as Italian food is otherwise good. The location is quite out of the way, but known by the tuktuk drivers and nicely by the sea. The opening notes are played by the...entrance to the long light alley which leads to the restaurant. The restaurant has a relaxed, very comfortable interior and a table was found immediately. Nicely spacious and sofa-like benches where you could relax. The table setting started with enjoying Mohitos. For starters, Mozzarella Bufala and Focaccia. For main course, diavola pizza and gnocchia with Parma ham, with red wine on the side. For dessert, chocolate fondant with ice cream, tiramisu and coffee americano. Finally, we enjoyed Negroni. I was pleasantly surprised and grateful that everything we ate was really good. I couldn't find anything to complain about and the flavors were top notch. The base of the pizza was perfect for my taste and all portion sizes were suitable. It's rare to get a set that goes so well together as a whole, and it was a pleasure to enjoy the food, drink and atmosphere. The only thing that makes me sad is that I have given many restaurants five stars and this one gets the same rating. I would give six stars if it were possible.

Excellent service, good and setting. Waiting staff were great. Food was excellent - we had the pizza Diavola, the meat lover and the carbonara. Desserts were also excellent - I had the tiramisu and it was delicious. Definitely a must visit!
