Housed in the centre of Liverpool, close to both Lime Street station and the Clayton Square Shopping Centre, Bella Italia is favoured by many. The Bella Italia restaurant group has certainly combined all the right ingredients to create a successful brand, with branches popping up consistently all over the country. Warm, stylish yet rustic style interiors are the trademark design of Bella Italia and this Liverpool outlet stays faithful to the style. The menu features well cooked, traditional Italian recipes such as beef and pork meatballs in tomato sauce atop a bed of spaghetti or chargrilled chicken breast with roasted veg and new potatoes. Bella Italia is great for families, couples and groups of friends alike and is open from breakfast through to lunch and dinner.

We went prior to seeing a show at the Empire Theatre as it is just around the corner, having made a reservation earlier in the day. This is not fine dining, but the food was well presented, tasty, and good value. Wine menu is basic but adequate, and overall was a good, middle of the road Italian. Would not hesitate... More

I opted for the sea bass. There was nothing about my meal that encouraged me to think I was eating at an Italian restaurant. The meal was acceptable, but my green beans were not very fresh looking. My partner opted for what sounded as if it should have been more "authentically" Italian. A calzone carne. It arrived with no garnish,... More
