Life is Beautiful at La Vita e Bella

Well… we have been “kidless” around our house for the last few days, so the wife and I have been enjoying some romantic nights out. My good friend Jared Kichula and his stunning wife Aja have just returned from their honeymoon, so they invited us to join them for dinner at their wonderful restaurant La Vita e Bella, in the historic Dafoe Terrace Building in Victoria Park.

La Vita e Bella has been a labor of love for Jared and Aja, and it shows in every aspect of this warm and sophisticated restaurant. From maintaining the old world feel of the classic brick building, to the pictures on the wall, most of them taken by Aja on their trips to Italy.

We arrived and were greeted by the hostess with a warm smile and taken out to the patio, where our host and his better half were enjoying a glass of wine. Before I can push in Dana’s chair and sit down, a plate of Antipasto is put down on the table. Now... I’m thinking this is my buddy Jared having everything timed perfectly, but truth be told it is actually because they were hungry and because I am terrible for being late, if it’s not a business meeting. We settled in and enjoyed the Antipasto and then some Bruschetta, both of which were fresh and flavorful. More wine, conversation and wine, did I mention more wine?

The time has arrived for dinner, like I hadn't eaten enough by then, but we order our Secondi because I can't wait to try the chefs fare. Dana decides on the Vitello Scallopini, pan seared with gnocchi, cherry tomatoes, garlic, shallots, capers & fresh lemon juice. It was fantastic, the gnocchi was like velvet. I intended to go light and watch my calorie count but Jared was adamant that I try the Bistecca, 18oz local Alberta Prime Grade, Bone-in Rib Eye Steak served on a bed of arugula and cherry tomatoes and finished with a little extra virgin olive oil. That combined with the Risotto that was calling my name, has now thrown my light plan to the curb. I have to say that it is one of the best steaks I have had in a long time, and that is a bold statement considering where we live, but true none the less.

We finished the meal with dessert, a house made tiramisu cheesecake, Aja’s favorite and now mine, but hands down the gold medal winner was the house made panna cotta. I will return again and again for this simple but elegant dessert, amazing!

Coffee and aperitifs, more conversation….. I could have stayed all night, and just about did. I have to say that if you enjoy world class food brought to your table with friendly sincere service, then don’t wait for the next hockey game or concert, visit this gem of restaurant and experience it for yourself.

Thank you to Aja and Jared for a relaxing and very special dining experience. Nothing makes a great meal better, than sharing it with great friends. Grazie tanto!

Very Profitable Little Stand-Alone Pub in Calgary Bedroom Community. This is the quintessential local neighborhood pub, where everyone really does know your name. Known in the community as the place that everyone comes to for a little fun and get away from the kids for an evening or afternoon. If you need a date night out with great food or maybe play some games with your friends…this is the place. There are 2 pool tables to play on, 4 VLTS and if you still need more, the dance floor is always ready to be used. But every Friday and Saturday night when the live DJ starts up…it is THE place in town to party and dance. The seating capacity breakdown is 115 inside and 45 on the patio, with a monthly rent of $6700. The pub is in great shape, and has been extremely well maintained, all the equipment is regularly serviced and shows very well. True neighbourhood pubs do not come available that often, so call to set up a tour of this great money making pub operation!

This is a downtown restaurant with lots of potential as for daytime and late-night business in the core. With 3000 sqft (+/-) of space, a nice little bar and a seating capacity of 83 people you could do a lot with this space. There is a strong opportunity to run a ghost kitchen out the back door while running a regular sit down restaurant at the same time. There is a walk in cooler and freezer, a fully vented kitchen hood fan with deep fryer, 6 pack stove and oven combo and a char broiler. There is lots of storage in the kitchen which is a plus in any restaurant. This is a great price for someone to open up a restaurant/ghost kitchen. Call to set up a time for a private tour of this restaurant.

Nightclub For Sale in Calgary Are you interested in the Calgary Nightclub scene? True nightclubs do not come to the market that often, so this is a great chance to buy one for a very competitive price. This is a fantastic spot with a recent renovation and a great floor plan that can be utilized in a bunch of different ways for large functions & corporate parties during the week, and then as a true dance club on the weekends. There is a small kitchen for the food requirements, a private room to rent out for Stag’s and Stagette’s, Birthday Parties etc., as well as a patio. All of the equipment is in excellent shape, it would cost you a small fortune to rebuild this from scratch, so this is a very strong opportunity for the right operator. The sound and lighting systems are very impressive, with the latest technology creating a very Vegas like atmosphere. If you are looking at buying a nightclub, look no further, you will be surprised at how great this space is and its versatility as a venue.
