La Vita Bella lives on the first floor of the Longmont Experience Building. Once a favorite coffee house, La Vita Bella, a.k.a. LVB, now offers a fine sensibility dining room. As a dining experience, LVB offers Contemporary American cuisine that is elegant and eclectic. Our menus highlight dishes, some familiar, some less so, that offer playful flavor combinations. This is our signature nod to the surprise and beauty of life. Share some of La Vita Bella’s small plates, or enjoy a full dining experience.
LVB at it's heart celebrates community and collaborative creation. We bring farm to table (farm forward) dining with most of our ingredients being locally grown and sourced. Our menus will vary slightly as we work with the season's offerings. And so, a favorite dish that you discover in the spring, may have an autumnal twist come September, or may take a back seat to an entirely new creation.
Pair your favorite bites or entrees with biodynamic wines, cocktails made with locally crafted spirits, or locally brewed beer. The love of local runs deep with us.
Because we partner with local farms and ranches, as well as other local artisans, YOU actively create and support your greater community when you choose to dine with us. Join us, with those close to you, relax and enjoy your favorite cocktail, mingle with the locals in Longmont’s unofficial living room. La Vita Bella welcomes you as our family, friends and community.
La Vita Bella prides itself on being a Farm to Table Restaurant. The menu is full of organic food from local producers and biodynamic wine. When you eat at La Vita Bella, you aren't just eating in Longmont, you are eating a piece of Longmont, Colorado.
Chef Alvarado got his start in Santa Fe, New Mexico, cooking with his Grandmother for his family. At the core of Chef Leroy’s creations is the love of preparing and sharing a table. Leroy found his way into Santa Fe’s restaurant kitchens at an early age. By his mid 20’s Leroy had the distinguished honor to be recognized as one of the top chefs in the state. Chef’s love of fusion, unusual pairings and playfulness shines through in his dishes. Inspired by flavors the world over, he is committed to showing the best Longmont's local ingredients have on offer.
"La Vita Bella" means "the good life". We think a good life includes the ease of relaxing to enjoy a great meal and culinary experiences, as well as treating yourself to music, art and performance. La Vita Bella hosts a variety of musical, arts and performances. Click below to see our calendar of upcoming events.
The food feeds, and the events entertain, but it's the family that keeps it all together.
