La Vita e Bella - Tirane

La Vita e Bella - 1 visit


The generosity and kindness of the Albanians is incredible 💖

Wayne and I have been walking by this new restaurant for the past month and checking in to see when they will open as it looks amazing! We dropped in yesterday to see how they were progressing and still 1 week away, but they were testing and finalising the menu, so instead of sending us away, they invited us in to enjoy a glass of wine and a snack on the house (we just needed to be seated around the corner where it wasn't obvious they were serving us).

The food and wine were absolutely divine, and we also experienced amberjack fish for the very first time, which was super impressive, even Wayne loved it!!

Service was impeccable, so warm and friendly, you truly felt like family.


A fantastic outdoor dining space, for long lazy lunches or dinners, also areas to lounge and enjoy an afternoon wine in the sun.


The restaurant indoors is beautifully designed, also upstairs has private dining rooms great for celebrations and functions, equipped with their own balconies and restrooms, along with a personal entrance to avoid having to walk through the main restaurant.

After our snack, we were taken through the new restaurant for a tour and meet the owner and the kitchen crew. We were so impressed with the stunning renovation, unique artwork, and quality decor we wished we were staying in Tirane longer, maybe we will be back after our travels.

We had a magical day and truly love the culture and incredible kindness we receive from the beautiful Albanians 💖🙏
