life is beautiful

A last-minute scramble for dinner reservations has its perks. Sometimes,
you end up at an eatery youve been meaning to try forever.

Located in the heart of Victoria Crossing, La
Vita e Bella
is one of those stumbled-upon gems.

Housed in the 1906 Dafoe Terrace, the Italian bistros décor has
preserved its original flair including the gorgeous brick façade. The
dining room is cozy and romantic while the bar area is perfect for a
girls night.

Try the Limone al Forno, a lemon stuffed with buffalo mozzarella and
served with arugula and crostinis, $15. Stuffed lemon? Oh yes. And the
gnocchi with double smoked bacon ($17) is divine.

On Sundays and Mondays the restaurant features a selection of its
premium wines at half price.

Well toast to that discovery.

La Vita e Bella, 401 12th Ave. SE, Calgary, 403-264-6046,
