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.

First time we have ventured into this establishment and it wont be the last. The food was served piping hot with not too much of a wait. The service was friendly prompt and courteous. Well worth a visit especially if you are going to the theatre afterwards.

I was accompanied by my husband ,daughter, her partner and a friend. We were seated and served very quickly and by friendly staff. There was a lovely atmosphere and the service was as good as the meal. If you want a light meal before the Theatre it is the perfect venue

Ate here for lunch on a Friday, I could hardly believe just how many tables are squashed into such a medium sized space! The food was average (my portion was far too small). The prices are quite reasonable though, but I would still advise that you go elsewhere!
