Great steak! Didn't try anthing Italian

Lovely service! And very caring. Superb sirloin, with good potatoes, nice little side salad (too much red onions for me, but easily removed). Juicy meat, cooked as asked. Ok glass of Chianti, bit rough honestly. Will go back for Italian food, and an Irish coffee to end the meal!

I come to Bella Bia often and it never lets me down. The Early Bird is such good value as well as being delicious. Great choice on the full menu with everything from pasta to fish to pizzas. It is my favourite place to eat and staff are very friendly :) I highly recommend it.

The staff were really helpful and made us feel very welcome even while the restaurant was busy. Myself and all the girls really enjoyed our starters and main course. We were too full for dessert unfortunately! Were still talking about... More

If you are looking for more than the usual Italian pasta & pizza, at the Bella Bia you will find what you are looking for. The restaurant room is pleasant, the service is pleasant and the food is quite good.

It was my 2nd time here and I really enjoyed it. I ordered bruschetta for starter and chicken for mains and both were really delicious. The portions are generous, the flavours were fab and it was great value for money, what more can one ask for. I loved the bruschetta, you can tell they used really good quality tomatoes and... More
