Description: 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 booked a table here after being unable to get into our other favourite restaurants this end of Liverpool. Like many cities, Liverpool sometimes seems to be full up with shoppers and tourists. This chain restaurant does exactly what it's meant to do - provide reliable food at a good price and keep the customers moving. Service good, food fine,... More

I have visited this Bella Italia many times and it has always been alright, up until last night. Incredibly slow and poor service, the food quality was appalling. Waited 30 minutes for desert and then they brought out the wrong one. Extremely disappointed.

excellent venue for lunch while doing a bit of shopping, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the food is delightful and there is a good choice on the menu, prices are reasonable for the city centre and its always busy but well worth waiting a few minutes for a table

Very slow service (over 30 mins for 2 burgers from specials menu). No decent Italian wine in stock. Wrong chips (string fries instead of chunky - a featured item on the menu), burger very over cooked, bun cold, garnish not complete on one. Sent back chips (not replaced) and offered replacement meals, but had an appointment so couldn't. Price of... More

We have been previously to a fantastic Bella Italia in Stratford Upon Avon so though we would treat ourselves. I have got to say the front of house staff were friendly. efficient and pleasant. Our order was taken promptly and our drink... More

Went here for a dinner with an army of 13 people and we were all disappointed with our meals. I ordered Agnello pasta which sounded amazing on the menu; supposedly slow cooked lamb pasta with ragu sauce. Firstly, the whole dish looked flat when it came out. I could tell it wasn't tasty just by the appearance. The pasta was... More

Arrived having booked our table, busy night and food took 50 mins to arrive, although other diners seem to be theirs first. 3 hungry kids and a hubby that's not impressed. Starters didn't come we had to ask and for the kids was very poor. Forgotten sides......love bella normally but won't be going back. All in all 2 hours spent... More
