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.

Ok meal

Visited during a family day out to Liverpool meal was okay when it arrived though the obvious friction between staff members in front of customers was uncomfortable. Food was okay but not spectacular one staffs attitude towards my 3 year old left a lot to be desired.

Nothing spectacular, but consistently good food and warm, friendly, service. A nice varied menu, with nice healthy options for young children too. Definitely one of the better Italian restaurant chains.

The restaurant was packed to the rafters with tourists and scousers who had travelled in the see the 3 Queens sailing on the River Mersey yet nothing was to much trouble for the staff. WE arrived in the peak time 8pm and after only a brief wait were shown to our table. The food was tasty, prompt and piping hot... More

On a couple of days break from Cornwall and popped in. Very welcoming, good food and atmosphere. Antony, our waiter made our visit even more enjoyable so I'd like to send my regards he's a gem.

6 of us had lunch here last week, our waiter was fantastic, his name was Antony and he was very friendly and a good laugh, as well as being a good waiter of course . He recommended the house red wine which was very nice. I had Marco Polo pasta (duck in plum sauce) which I would definitely recommend. Very... More

Unfortunately for Bella, the oven had broke and their loss in custom was our gain in peace. Escaped loud pubs and Kareoke bars to have dinner there. Staff were very pleasant and polite and took time to actually engage in conversation with us - which was appreciated and is remembered. Not all places have this quality !! Pasta dish and... More

Good menu choices - both drinks & food. Macaroni cheese was hideously bland, almost cheese-less. Ice-cream desert was very basic & hugely over priced. In future don't serve ice-cream in hot glass dishes as it just turns it into milkshake! Waiter was over friendly, very casual and proceeded to sing & dance while serving - spoiling the ambience. Won't rush... More
