Vast array of food

I was at the restaurant for a family celebration and ordered food under the early bird time of the evening. This is where you can order a 2 or 3 course meal at a reduced price during a certain time. The food was fantastic and the bonus was you got three courses for less than 15 euros. Please... read more

I had dinner here a while ago with a few friends for a little reunion, the food was very nice, I had pizza which was very tasty and my friends meals looked lovely too. The restaurant has a nice homely feel to it, though it can be a little bit noisy when crowded. Overall it was a very enjoyable meal... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way to Shannon for dinner. The service was great and the food was excellent. We both had a chicken dish and we were both very happy with our selections. The owners were very friendly and you could tell they took great pride in their restaurant. Our only regret is that we didn't... More

Definitely one of the best restaurants in Tralee. In my honest opinion, the food here is consistently good. Cannot undefstand why it is number 12 as this place is packed to the rafters, everytime I have visited. With anyone, I have spoken to, in the locality, giving it a thumbs up. The Early bird is very reasonable, at €13.95 for... More

Stopping in for dinner on our way home we thought - 'Italian, you can't go wrong!' ,,,, we soon found out oh yest you can! My friend ordered fish which could only be described as bland, dry and very unappealing! I ordered the risotto with chicken and mushrooms - tasty but all of the chicken was left on my plate....

I stopped here on my way home from Kenmare at the weekend. I thought you can't go wrong with Italian, oh but you can!!! The service was VERY slow, now it wasn't the waitresses fault as she was looking after 3 different rooms and didn't even have time to breath! I had bruscetta to start and this was nice enough,...

Sadly haven't been to Bella Bia in a long time, but wow a fantastic welcome from Noreen and her husband. Had the early bird with starter, main course and capuchino and glass of housewine for around 20euro. I don't know how they can give such great value for good food and generous portions. I had the fish steamed in parchment... More

we were looking forward to a nice Italian meal. We found the food a bit tasteless. Long delays didn't help so we were disappointed.

Excellent food but seemed to occur to me that there was a lack of plates as my plate was taken fairly soon after I put the fork down.
