I’m Angie, welcome to The Bella Vita.

I am the one behind the recipes you will find here . 

I was born and raised in a small town in Sicily. 

The love of cooking runs in my family, my dad had a traditional Sicilan bar and my mom is an excellent cook.

I grew up watching them cook. 

I went to a professional school for tourism, but working in tourism was not my destiny.

After school I started working as a waitress in different restaurants in my town, then in 2010 I started working in a kitchen as a cook, and I enjoyed it very much.

In 2012 I left Sicily and moved to Malta, where I also started working in restaurants there, but after a couple of months I had the opportunity to start a new career in a office 

But that was not my destiny either. 

Thanks to this job , I met the love of my life. 

Everything started from there. A new adventure was about to begin.

Together we had many new adventures together, and one of the most beautiful experiences together was living for a year in Asia.

And thanks to that trip The Bella Vita was born.


Many of the recipes you find are typical Italian dishes, but not only that. 

I love discovering new tastes and trying new recipes. 

One of my favorite recipes that I cook often is this pasta with broccoli, a typical Italian dish.

Another cuisine I love is Asian, between curries, spring rolls and dumplings, my fridge is never short of ginger and soy sauce.
