The food was excellent however the service terrible this was due we are led to believe to the restaurant been quite earlier in the evening and staff let off early. What obviously wasn't taken into account was the crowd due back The Open Golf Championship in Hoylake. What saved the evening was the waitress who was amazing and managed the... More

We went on a Sunday evening and although it was busy the staff were attentive and pleasant. A very nice place and clean. The spaghetti bolognese was the best I've ever tried and the garlic bread was terrific. For desert we shared a very large ice cream sundae with strawberries, meringue and ice cream - beautiful. The servings were very... More

We were visiting Liverpool to go to the theatre and decided we needed some food. After walking around for a while we came across Bella Italia not too far from the Theatre. My wife had sausage ragu and I had the Risotto, both were good and much better than the usual chain Italian's. Good value especially as on fathers day... More

The plus point for Bella Italia is you can boost Tesco vouchers to x4. Ate lunch here doing that. Found the place and the food cold and soulless. The waitress who served us was, by contrast, very good.

I have visited Bella Italia in Manchester, London, Leeds and now Liverpool! It was late afternoon when we visited so service was rather slow, probably because more staff are on at busier times. We were in no hurry though and the waitress was very friendly and the drinks were quickly served. The pizzas were lovely and cooked to perfection! We... More

The place is pleasant either because of the atmosphere or the menu and the quality of the dishes. Besides, the waiter could speak Russian and was very polte communicating with us.
