We dined here on a Tuesday evening over Easter and it was very busy so making a reservation is probably a good idea. Regardless the staff couldn't have been more helpful and told us we could wait twenty minutes or come back we decided to take a walk around and came back later and were welcomed and recognised immediately even...

My wife, children (aged 13 and 11) and I went for an early bird meal on 6/4/2015. We did not need a reservation although this place is usually very busy so if you are coming out later you need to book in advance. The food was really good and we all enjoyed it. The service was good and the staff... More

Myself and a few friends met at Bella Bia for dinner. Our starters were delicious, my main was a bit disappointing.. I ordered Sicilian Cod with salad and roast potatoes. Cod wasnt anything I havent tried before and salad had no dressing which wasnt very nice. Two friends ordered cheesecakes and both deserts looked different plus one was tasteless. Bella... More

Lovely setting, fantastic atmosphere, friendly staff and supremely tasty food. The early bird is great value, pizzas are huge. It's always busy which speaks for itself. Excellent value too.

Good food at reasonable prices especially the Early Bird menu. Between us we had two pizzas, a risotto and lasagna. All very good and decent sized portions. Drinks a little expensive but this is Ireland! A little disappointed that they couldn't find the password for the Wi-Fi, so unable to download my emails. Would go again and recommend it.
