Traditional Italian Restaurant

First, relax in the cosy private bar located at the back of La Bella Vita Restaurant. Here, amid the grand Italian decor and 17th century architecture, you can browse the sumptuous Italian menu in comfort and listen to Giorgio present the tempting fresh daily specials. Then, select from the exceptional wines and champagnes, with expert advice on hand if needed.

All meals at La Bella Vita are prepared from the finest fresh ingredients, according to traditional Italian recipes. Giorgio and his team personally source all their ingredients from some of the best produce markets in the UK: Billingsgate fish market; Smithfields meat market; and vegetables from Spitalfields market. The daily specials will reflect La Bella Vita's market selections - perhaps a Cuttlefish Risotto, Oven-baked Razorfish, or Pasta with Brown Prawns & Wild Mushrooms. A true taste of Venice in historic Hitchin!

Finish off your meal with one of the tantalisingly fresh desserts from La Bella Vita's dessert trolley, and perhaps some rich Italian coffee...
