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.

A pleasant lunch

I had not been to a Bella Italia restaurant for some years and when my wife received a discount voucher it seemed like a good time to go again ! It was very pleasant. Busy but not overbearing.

Went here with my wife and a couple of friends over the weekend for dinner and had a great time. The food was great and the service was faultless - even at peak time. We have been here a few times now and have never been disappointed.

We visited Bella Italia for a team breakfast, there were around 15 of us. We had reserved a table, however, due to how we were paying (part of the bill at discount and the other 2 for 1) we were seated at 2 tables. Our order was taken soon after we sat down and we did not have to wait... More

The service was lovely other than when arrived it took us 10 minutes to get seated. On the other hand my partner ordered the chicken burger, but unfortunately it was very pink inside and under dons, we mentioned this to the manager who couldn't have done anything more, he took it off the bill and gave my partner a free...

I suppose that you shouldn't give a poor review because you have a poor waiter!! I ordered a burger and chips, when they arrived the waiter lent over and dropped the basket of chips all over the table. He then asked if I would like new ones and looked surprised when I said yes!! My daughter asked for some ketchup... More

My two friends and I dined here in January, early evening. It was extremely busy and,although we hadn't booked they managed to find a table for us. My friend had fish and the other had lasagne which they said was delicious. I opted for beef stew in red wine which I was a bit disappointed with. There was not much... More

We visited Bella Italia this Sunday after not going for a few months. There was several tables free but we were told they were for a party of 30 ( this party never arrived). We had to wait nearly an hour for the food and the waitress wasn't very friendly. The main course was fine but dessert was supposed to... More

Me and my partner visited today for a spot of lunch after doing some shopping. We where quickly seated by a very friendly waitress, who I believe name was KellyD as that was the name on my receipt. Her whole attitude and friendless was amazing! The food was really good, and if you are a Pizza lover I definitely suggest... More

Met a friend here for lunch, who was working so we only had an hour to have our meal. The restaurant was very busy but the service was excellent and didn't take long to take our order and deliver our food to the table. I went for the lunchtime menu and at only being £6.95 I was a bit concerned... More

Myself and my three teenagers went before the panto . Came in and it wasn't very busy but we stood at the front of the restaurant for about 5 min before anyone even looked at us and they did that to everyone who came in. It seemed very rude as you dont know if they saw you or what. We... More
