La Bella Vita Italian restaurant opens in downtown Macon

A new Italian restaurant is coming to downtown Macon. Donny Barnes is co-owner of La Bella Vita. Barnes says he and co-owner Vincent Kelly plan to open the Italian restaurant at 347 Cotton Avenue on May 1. This is Barnes’ first restaurant venture, but he says Kelly has his hands in Fatty’s Pizza, a Macon pizza restaurant franchise. The Alabama native moved to central Georgia about a year and a half ago. Barnes says they’ve been in the process of establishing La Bella Vita for the last month in a half. Working on renovations, hiring staff, and organizing the menu at what he calls a “prime location” right across from Fatty’s Pizza. The building used to be home to Crave Scratch Kitchen, which had only been in business for six months before it closed indefinitely. Before Crave, it was an Asian take-out spot. Barnes says he thinks La Bella Vita will be different.
