We chose Bella Italia because we knew we'd get the food free with our Tesco vouchers. However the food was fab. the garlic mushroom and bruschetta starters were delicious.Yes some of the waitresses were miserable looking... More

I rated this restaurant average because it really is a bit of a 'mixed platter'. The food is excellent & I cannot fault it at all. The saying that 'you get what you pay for' is not quite right here as, I know that no restaurant is exactly cheap these days, but I feel that you pay at least 10%... More

Booked a table for 4 on Friday evening. Place was very busy. Waited over 30 minutes for our meals All had a brushetta starter which was dreadful - the worst I've ever had. Complained and item taken off the final bill. Main courses were also very poor. 3 of the meals contained very little meat & the salads served did... More

Went with my husbands family after a trip to the cinema. Service was mixed with one waitress being very friendly and attentive, whist the other appeared completely bored and uninterested. Our food was delivered and we were not offered either black pepper or cheese, which to be honest my dish would have benefited from both. The food was ok, but... More

Tried to eat here one Friday night. Was told there was a half an hour wait for a table, despite the fact there were a dozen or so empty tables. Waited at the bar, the waiter gave a table to friends of his who came in after us! We left and went to Pizza Hut instead. Avoid.

My family and I had a lunch time meal on a quiet day during the August hols. The place wasn't that busy, so we were shown to our table quickly by a male member of staff. He gave us the full price menu, but failed to offer the lunch menu. We waited and waited for him to return, but he... More

Service so slow but to be fair they were under staffed rather than unhelpful, expensive for really average food, hand cut chips were packet frozen, so many other better places to eat don't waste your time and money.

I'm currently sat after an hour with still no main and no explanation and missing a film where we planned plenty notice! We've ran out of drinks and the waitress seems to walk past us numerous times without even checking if we require another! Ordering seemed to be difficult at best to change cheese on a pizza to mozzarella! Seems... More
