We visited for breakfast. The service was slow, in an empty restaurant and the waitress was rude. When the food came it wasn't even correct.

My friend & I booked in advance for lunch & a catch up. We chose this restaurant as it is very central & near to bus stops. Several people were hovering just inside the door & as no member of staff acknowledged us I checked to see whether any of the queue had booked (which they hadn't) before approaching a... More

Awful service we were left waiting by the door and ignored by the staff for at least for 10-15 mins. We could understand it if the place was very busy and had not booked a table however it wasn't and we had. We then moved down to the bar hoping to get some attention and to be seated only to... More

Just had a really nice meal and desert. Staff had great bubbly personalities. Fabulous. We had Calzone, which I hadn't had before and it was very tasty. Desert was really nice (enjoyed every minute of the "Godfather Banana Sundae). Would definitely go again.

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

The young waitress was lovely and also very helpful .We had one of the best meals ever here, with hot food served quickly and so very tasty!! The drinks were also served quickly. A... More

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
