Bella Vita is near the marina with all its boats, snazzy bars and restaurants. Not quite on the sea front, but set back on cobbled streets. When we happened on this Italian pizzeria, it was quite late so we were lucky to get a table for some food. The vibe was friendly with some good music pumping from inside. Of course, most people were dining in the terrace outside as it was just too warm to be inside. The upbeat waiters took our orders before the kitchen closed and our orders were pretty simple. I went for lamb chops, Sam Vanilla and Helen decided to share a pizza. This late in the day you expect the food to be mediocre, but as is the case with most of the restaurants we visited in Monte Carlo, a lot of love and attention is paid to it. I guess because of the calibre of the clientele and their unforgiving nature, they cannot afford to cut corners on standards. The food was great, the service quick and after a failed attempt to make payment, our route to the hotel was short and sweet. The best thing about Monte Carlo/Monaco aside from some hot waiters and warm weather, is that it is small, so it easy to get around without too long a journey.
