Booked at last minute prior to going to theatre. Staff friendly and very quick given our time pressure. Pizzas the best choice - even managed ice cream for children before crossing the road for theatre.

We were looking forward to eat some good Italian food, there is not much Italian at this restaurant, the food is not tastfull. I had the cannelloni and my husband a pastadish. It could have been a microwave meal. So once and never again.

Came to Bella bia for a quick bite to eat and left full to the brim! The menu is fab, couldn't decide what I wanted because everyone looked so amazing. In the end settled for bruschetta and a pasta dish. Cleared the plate on both courses. I am really looking forward to coming back!

Great restaurant for all. Super Italian food, very good value and quality wine list. Very family friendly too. Just disappointed we couldn't get a table two nights in a row!
