Bella Italia Brighton couldn't ask for a better location within the vibrant southern seaside city. Situated in the charming area known as The Lanes, with its numerous antique shops and jewellers, Bella Italia offers both locals and visitors great Italian grub at accessible prices. Tuck into starters such as the mushrooms baked in mascarpone, spinach and garlic sauce with ciabatta followed by a 7oz sirloin steak with garlic butter, mushrooms, fried and rocket accompanied by a sauce of your choice. Round off with a classic banoffee pie with sprinkled amaretti biscuits and zabaglione cream. All this accompanied by a traditional Italian Peroni beer or a glass of Chianti. If you're looking for a good value Italian restaurant in Brighton, Bella Italia certainly fits the bill.

Good

Nice place, liked that there are indoor and outdoor seats. I got a nicely presented and deliciously done salad and really enjoyed the dessert shots.

We absolutely love this restaurant and visit anytime we're in Brighton. The food is first class, the service is first class, the value is first class! Staff are amazing and cannot do enough to serve you, even during busy periods no element seems to suffer. Keep doing what you're doing-you're a rarity!!

Excellent meal and a very nice bottle of vino. Starters first class and their daily specials were just that, special. Worth a return visit.

Visited with my wife and two small kids today, We had a great welcome and I don't usually write reviews but feel good service needs to be praised, our waitress couldn't of been any better and looked after us fantastically even with a screaming 11 month old in a foul mood, she paid lots of attention to the kids and...

For those who know Brighton well there are more places to eat in than there are pebbles on the beach! Have to admit chose Bella because we both needed the loo after a 2 hour drive down from Southampton. Worth a mention because the service was very good and the food about what you'd expect from a middle of the... More

We went to see Hairspray at the Corn Exchange last night and needed a quick supper first. My son always insists on going to Pinocchio's but I'd down loaded a voucher for Bella Italia - buy one main get one for £1, so thought we'd try it out. I usually avoid 'chains' but was trying to be thrifty. I have... More

My friends and I popped in for a late lunch and the very knowledgeable manager looked after us amazingly. Myself being gluten free , felt very relaxed with every course I ordered and i would definitely recommend.
