Ordered lamb rack, one of the best in my life. The gravy was smooth and tasty. My husband ordered steak and it was better than many he's had in Brazil or Argentina, it was juicy and tender. The place was full, but the waitress did their best. It's worth waiting. You won't regret You'd better make a reservation.

I had the Garlic Mushrooms to start which were very tasty, followed by the Lasagne. The portions were good, the only thing I would say is with a big bowl... More

Bella Bia consistently delivers. The prices are very reasonable, the menu offers lots of choice, the food is good, the service is good and there's always a great buzz in the restaurant. The mussels starter was excellent and the portion size was very generous. It was considerably better than a similar dish in other considerably more expensive restaurants in Tralee.... More
