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.

My colleague and I came here one lunch time for a quick meal. We had a time constraint and let the staff know this, they did absolutely everything they could to accommodate us within the time we had and we had a lovely, well cooked and speedily served meal. Fab.

Four of us go for our birthdays throughout the year and have never had a bad meal. I usually stick to the italiano pollo (chicken burger) but I decided to try the seabass with roasted new potatoes, olives, grilled tomatoes, and green beans which was cooked perfectly and delicious. We know the waitresses now and are friends with one of... More

Extremely busy half term lunchtime but we were found a table straight away. Warm and welcoming atmosphere, staff were friendly and the food was the usual high standard. OK so not haute cuisine but the meals (chicken ciaccatore, chicken salad) hit the spot and were served in a relaxed and cheerful atmosphere. Have never had a bad meal in a... More

Late afternoon meal for two. Bolognese and pizza were fairly good value. As usual for a chain restaurant, the drinks were over priced. The staff were pleasant and attentive. Overall it was better than we expected for a meal in a big restaurant chain. A solid 3+ rating, not quite a 4.

Went there without booking and grabbed last table for dinner at 8pm Saturday - phew! Bread and oils recommended as starter no prob with large jug tap water. Great waiter. Tables very close to each other but great ambiance. Food main courses good especially for veggie daughter and value for money- left tip.

So I've given it 4/5. A little too much, but 3/5 would be too low. We were getting my wife a new iPhone, and it took a while. Could we go for a walk while the store did some sorting out? It was 6.30pm, so we looked for a quick supper. Bella Atalia. At 6.30pm it was packed - but... More

We stopped in for dinner and the food was delicious. The prices are reasonable and they have a large variety of gluten-free options. The service was not the most amazing we've experienced, but the staff were friendly, didn't leave us for too long and even asked how our meals were. There was also lots of children around who seemed well... More

I have been to this particular restaurant many times now but this time we were really disappointed! We ordered 3 Calzone pizzas but unfortunately the dough was soggy, hardly any filling in them and one of them was missing the chicken! We returned the pizza without the chicken to replace it one with chicken and when it came it had... More

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.
