Bella Vita in El Nido Palawan: Sunsets, Pizzas, and Cocktails by the Beach
El Nido is among the best places to enjoy sunsets by the beach. If you’re wandering around and trying to find the perfect place to chill out, we suggest Bella Vita El Nido, an Italian beach-front resto-bar perfectly situated in the majestic backdrop of El Nido’s Corong-Corong beach.

What started out as a pizza delivery blossomed into a nipa-hut resto-bar that first opened its doors in October of 2016. Mr. Oliver, one of the owners, learned about the secrets of making the perfect pizza when he studied in an international pizza school in Italy.
Soon after, he brought his knowledge into use and opened Bella Vita, serving nothing but the best Italian plates.
Today, Bella Vita is known for its perfect combination of sunsets and cocktails, best paired with a slice of good pizza.
Make sure not to miss out on their selection of brick-oven and hand-tossed pizzas like the Margherita (Php 270/9 inches; Php 370/12 inches), which is best paired with their Green Apple Mojito!

Apart from freshly made pizzas, Bella Vita also serves comfort favorites like their Carbonara (Php 340), a creamy plate of pasta goodness, and the best pair for your pizza favorites.
Should you want something that is healthier, Bella Vita also has Chicken Caesar Salad (Php 320), a crunchy plate of freshness that even non-salad eaters would definitely enjoy.
