Norwich's Red Lion Street is home to Bella Italia, one of the well loved chain of Italian restaurants with outlets all over the UK. Situated in a convenient city centre location, close to the Vue cinema complex and the Norwich Castle Mall, Bella Italia on Red Lion Street is a great place for a meal. The pretty terrace to the front of the restaurant is perfect during the summertime for dining and people watching at the same time. As for the menu, expect the usual Bella Italia classics from pizza to pasta and grills to salads. The set menus is always a steal and the kiddies menu offers plenty of choice for the little ones. The wine list stays faithful to Italy and features a good selection of reds, whites and rosés and Peroni and Moretti take care of the beers.

Delicious food

We went here with our 11 year old for a meal and we found the food delicious and the children's menu was such good value! It's the reason why we will be returning with our other 2 children soon. I had the pasta with duck and plum sauce and it was truly wonderful.

This past Saturday my partner and I went out to Bella Italia, down Red Lion Street, for some lunch. We have a spree book and this place was listed as accepting these vouchers on a Saturday - WIN! These vouchers made our burger meals buy one get one free, which if the truth be told, made them even tastier and... More

Reserved a table on line, when arriving at the restaurant no table was reserved for us, which was very disappointing.

Not been to this bella Italia before. The tables are quite close together which I dislike. But other than that the service was exceptionally quick, the food was good and there was plenty to choose from! I had a pizza and my boyfriend had a pasta dish and both very lovely. I think if I went to bella Italia again... More

Whenever we visit Norwich we always go to Bella Italia for dinner as it's conveniently close to the Theatre Royal. The food is always good and we were served both main course and dessert without waiting too long considering every table in the restaurant was filled.

Visited this restaurant on a Sunday afternoon. It was quite busy, but not full by any means. We ordered two glasses of wine and my wife ordered the grilled salmon salad, I ordered a pizza. The wine came but we waited for the food, and waited and waited! Eventually we called over the waiter, who apologised and took our order... More

My boyfriend and I visited this place for lunch on a Friday afternoon. It wasn't busy, but it seemed very unorganised. We waited about 15 minutes for our drink to be ordered, and then another 15 for our drinks, and a further 10 for our food. It seemed like we had been forgotten about!! When our food finally arrived, we... More

We went there for breakfast this week around 10 am one morning, it was empty other than one couple sitting near the window and the first thing we noticed was loud music blaring out, guess that's when we should have left. The £4:95 breakfast consists of 2 fried egg or scrambled egg, one sausage, 2 bacon, half tomato, small portion... More
