Often used Bella Italia and have used this restaurant before but this time they went out of their way to p!ease. There is a varied menu which most people could find something to eat, from steak, burgers, pasta, vegetarian and pizzas. All cooked to order as I can vouch for. I am allergic to cheese but always loved the look... More

My wife and I had some Tesco vouchers to use at Bella Italia. We went on Sunday and i was starving. I had the special which was a half a rack of baby ribs with a chicken breast with chips and corn on the cob and my wife had the salmon salad. I was hoping for quite a large meal... More

Lovely food, good service, great atmosphere. Would like more meatballs with the spagetti meatballs but over all really can't complain. Location is ideal, right in the city centre five minuites from the bus station and ten mins from Chapelfied shopping centre. Awesome 5/5

We had an excellent lunch with a good bottle of house wine. The service was first class (but without any of the cheesiness and insincerity of Mr Oliver's people). I am happy to recommend a meal here and you will spend a lot less than at Jamie's!

Ate at Bella Italia today with a friend and our children. We used spree vouchers so saved some money and the member of staff who served us was both patient with us and very on the ball when it came to eating gluten free. The menu is labelled with which options can be provided gf and there are options within... More

We generally like Bella and once again the food was very good but the service this evening was sluggish at best and one of the waitreses really looked as if she did not want to bew there. I noticed starters for another customer sitting under the heat lamps for nearly... More

My husband and i visited here for the second time this year and again the food was really good. As i walked in, the staff were hesitant about coming up to me but they were friendly and chatty after we sat down. We were told that the member of staff would come back to take our drinks order but we... More

Quick meal before theatre. Hadn't booked and were given a table along the left wall (as you walk in). After a few moments it became clear while this area was last to be filled...the evening sun streams through and literally blinds those facing the window! Food was average, service was friendly and quick.

The following review is my personal opinion only, based on my own experience. Went here for lunch on a weekday, relatively busy but not packed. Nice enough atmosphere, prompt and pleasant service. Food was good, reasonable portion size and tasted nice. Nothing was outstanding at all, but everything was above merely satisfactory in my view. Overall, very good.
