La Bella Vita aims to share Italian superior life

When Chuck Konner was 22 and dwelling briefly on St. Thomas, he noticed La Bella Vita, a 44-foot two-masted sailboat, glide majestically earlier the island. 

“It implies the good lifetime, the amazing life,” Konner claims of the boat’s Italian title. “And ever since then, I’ve normally preferred an Italian restaurant named La Bella Vita.”

Now, Konner and his companions — Mike DiSabato and Dana Heilman — have just that with La Bella Vita Kitchen area and Bar in Orleans, which opened in June. 

“It’s a mix of Italian from the north and south of the state,” DiSabato states of the cuisine. “We do the tomato sauces and the olive oil and cheese sauces. We call it Cape Cod Italian because we check out to integrate regional ingredients with dishes like clams linguine and cioppino (seafood stew).”

Most days, La Bella Vita features a specialty pizza, such as the recent $15 meatball and parmesan.  [Mike DiSabato]

DiSabato handles La Bella Vita’s spirits and social media (labellavitaorleans.com, la_bella_vita_orleans on Instagram and https://www.facebook.com/labellavitaorleans). He produces specialty cocktails everyday, together with a the latest Maple Pecan Outdated Fashioned sells $20 bottles of limoncello do-it-yourself with natural and organic lemons and buys a extensive assortment of wines that are available for $20 every single on both of those La Bella Vita’s dine-in and takeout menus. 

The menu also has a $60 supper-for-two menu, as properly as topic evenings and pizza. Most entrees on the normal menu operate in the reduced to mid-$20 range.
