I was invited on a dinner at this restaurant and we were around 15 persons. I can say this restaurant offers good food. It has some varieties of food items and alos drinks. we all enjoyed our time and our food as well. The staff is friendly and very kind. I would love to come back one day.

Was here during the Rose of tralee festival, myself and 7 others including 2 kids went in and had a lovely meal with even better service from the staff. Very reasonable bill at the end of the night. Could maybe do with a slightly brighter setting on the lights after dark but a lovely experience was had.

In Tralee to visit family who recommended Bella Bia for dinner. We booked and 5 of went at 7pm. Upon entering it was extremely noisy as there was a large family group with very young children but they were just finishing. The menu is very good and extensive. They offered us both the early bird and al la carte. We... More

Value for money if you go for their early bird. Food is always amazing. The chef is amazing as the food is always good no matter what time of the evening or night you go there. Always a very busy restaurant so always book in advance and it can get loud as it is always busy

Bella Bia is the restaurant I go to most in Tralee because of its menu, great service, delicious food and nice atmosphere. The early bird is great value at €22 and all the portions are decent sizes. Worth a visit if you're in Tralee but make sure to book in advance as it's always very busy!

This is one of the better Italian restaurants we encountered in Ireland. It was very crowded when we visited, but the service was still very good. The rack of lamb was especially good, but we thought the pasta was a little over cooked. This seems to be normal throughout Ireland. So be sure to ask them to cook it al... More

The food was decent and so was the wine selection. Tough, I am sure if I would have gone with a group, Bella Bia would have been a good place for larger, group dining. Traveling alone I was overlooked and put in a corner, where the service was not wonderful. I suggest this place for an early bird meal with... More

First time here and I was really impressed. Staff were busy however were very pleasant and apologised for any delays. The food was really lovely and excellent value with the early bird menu. The wine was the nicest I have had and I really appreciated the generous glass and again it was very good value. I ordered bruschetta for starter... More

My daughter and I both ordered pizza which was delicious. My husband ordered spaghetti bolognaise, but the portion was a little smaller than expected. This is a lovely restaurant indeed.
