Decided to visit here earlier this year having passed it so many times and being curious! The inside decor is so lovely - calm & warming. The service was great and attentive, I cheated a bit and had a burger in a italian restaurant but my partner had a calzone which I had a nibble on and was scrummy! It... More

Had an early lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food was good, well-served in generous portions. We started with bruschetta and assorted dipping breads, sharing both. My partner had pizza Marco Polo and I had pollo cacciatore with roasted vegetables. We consider the cost to be excellent value. We finished with ice... More

We called into Bella Italia for lunch on Sunday. A family of five with a young 6 year old. We were promptly shown to a quiet table in the corner. Service was very attentive and friendly. Our 6 year old was given a colouring pack which kept him occupied. The waiter soon picked up on our 6 year old's name... More

Called in with two friends for lunch yesterday. I had pasta Norma. Aubergines were not cooked and the tomato sauce was cold. Usually allowed more than one grating of Parmesan. Obviously on ration here. The waiter couldn't stop looking down my young friends top. She was so embarrassed that she had to drape her scarf around herself. I wanted dessert... More

Called in for lunch with my two daughters, we all had just a main course and all had pasta. I had agnello tagliatelle, delicious, one daughter had mushrooms, very good, other daughter had aubergine, awful. I wanted to send it back but she said no. I noticed that all of the prices had increased significantly, I will not be back.

The staff were brilliant from the lad taking us to our table and pointing out the specials that day to both of the waitresses serving us firstly the drinks and then naturally the food. Everyone...

We enjoyed the appetizers and dinners here during Beatle Week. This restaurant was always busy with considerable waiting times. We were able to have a cocktail at the bar while waiting. One of the new additions to the appetizer menu is the crab sticks which are very tasty! Filo wrapped around crabmeat forming a stick to dunk into a tasy... More
