Superb New England Oceanside Dining

Whether you choose the classic Italian elegance of La Bella Vita (Spring 2011), the casual comfort of the Enoteca Lounge or Clubhouse Grille, or our newSplash Pool Bar dining at the Samoset is an experience to savor.

The choice of the finest restaurants in Rockport, Maine

As in Italy, La Bella Vita uses only the freshest ingredients, with an emphasis on garden-grown vegetables and healthy olive oil. An authentic wood-fired brick oven casts a warm glow over the Enoteca (Italian Wine Bar). A perfect gathering place where family and friends can meet over a robust glass of wine, breath in the heavenly aromas of flatbread pizza, antipasti, and small tapas style dishes. With earthy tones, copper pots, handcrafted Italian mosaics, photos of the Italian countryside and al fresco patio dining, La Bella Vita builds on the proud traditions of an Italian trattoria. The great ambience and spectacular ocean views are reminiscent of the tiny harbor towns and villages along the Italian coast making this Rockport’s premier dining spot.
