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.

Fast and friendly

Good Italian food, just the carb boost we needed after an exhausting adrenaline activity day near Crawley. Pleased to find this place while out for our evening walk. Food was delicious and the staff were friendly. Can't ask for much more than that!

Despite it being a Tuesday evening, the restaurant was busy with a good atmosphere. I would reccomend booking evening if it a mid-week evening. We were sat promptly and offered drinks. I was initially a little dissapointed that a few items we would have chosen were out of stock, we ordered starters and then choose an alternative main course (Sea... More

Decided to have a change from the restaurant we use all the time in Brighton. Shouldn't have done! We only wanted a snack, so had the mixed starters, a basket of assorted bread and some chips. Nothing wrong with the food as such. Behind us was a table for 4 and every time someone tried to sit there the Polish... More

Four of us had an evening meal this week and found the food to be OK, typical chain. Our waiter was very attentive. It was very noisy due to a large crowd on another table, difficult for us to have a conversation. It was quite a cold evening and there was a draught coming through the large windows alongside our...

Came for lunch with my daughter. Service was very quick and friendly, the food was hot and tasted great. Have been put off in in chain restaurants before, but really enjoyed this and would go again.

The food tasted great and came quite quickly which was good considering how busy it was. However I found the prices quite high for the amount of food I ate.
