Description: 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.

Staff very friendly. Food very good. Good choice on menu. The only downside, not much space between tables.

Absolutely appalling. We were sat by the window, where the window putty was yellow and falling apart, with what looked like paper shoved into the gaps. We were asked for drinks and ordered relatively quickly but were not spoken to again asked about dessert. The food was over-cooked and the pizza I ordered did not come with the dressing it... More

Not the place to go if you wish to talk with friends or partners - as can be very noisy, staff are not always polite and too many tables so you cannot always get out of the place

Great service, very friendly staff. My food was really good but then I had chosen the dishes before at another Bella. My husbands food was a little bland, the tomato salad could have benefited from having some ciabatta on the side but his pizza (lighter variety) was nice enough apparantly. Would dine there again.

Food and service was lovely and will definitely be eating here again. Staff were very attentive and the restaurant itself was clean and welcoming. Only issue we had was that we got a little chilly every time the door was opened but as expected this time of year. However, overall we had a lovely experience.
