Welcome to La Vita. – “The Life”


Our Story starts way back in 1999 when a small, yet growing family began a tiny Italian Trattoria  in Chester, CT to serve as a catering facility. With extra space on hand, Jacqueline wisely suggested that they throw a few tables in the front just in case people wanted to "dine in." Those 5 tables quickly grew into 15 and soon those 15 table didn't seem like they would be enough to satisfy the local crowd's desire for delicious homemade cooking. They found a beautiful old building in the historic Goodspeed landing in East Haddam Village.  Their new home would be right across the street from the Tony Award winning theater, The Goodspeed Opera House. This is where our story finds us 15 years after opening.

Today, when you come into La Vita you might not see Jacqueline dangling a child or two on her hips when she takes your order, but you can find those children all grown up and taking (or giving) orders themselves. Our business  and family may have expanded over the years but one thing has remained the same. Our love of food. So Please, let our family feed yours.

 All entrées are cooked to order - Please allow yourself enough time to enjoy


Vederti presto! (see you soon)
