Bella Bia is by far my favorite restaurant in Tralee. The food is extremely tasty, they have the best Pasta dishes ever. This restaurant is always very busy so it would be advisable to book in advance. Service is also excellent, all the staff and the owners are extremely friendly and really enhance your dining experience, finally the home made... More

Food was fab, this nicest carrot and parsnip purée I've had in ages and this salmon was cooked to perfection. We were in a... More

We ate here on a Thursday evening on a recent short trip to Tralee. The restaurant was busy and was offering a very reasonable early bird menu. I had the crab starter and pork belly main and shared the chocolate fudge with my partner. The crab salad was the nicest dish, very tasty. We each got a very generous glass... More

We decided to give this restaurant a try while on vacation in Ireland, so glad we did! Some of the best pasta we have ever eaten. It was very busy on a Tuesday night but they took great care of us. I must try if ever in this area!

We have dined here several times, but wanted to introduce two other couples to this little gem. The restaurant was bustling and all tables were full, we were informed that a table... More

Based on reviews from TripAdvisor and recommendations from locals, I went here for a meal with my family. The restaurant is very cosy. The staff were very good. We all enjoyed our meal, with the notable exception of my seafood risotto, which was as soft as pudding rice. When I complained, not only did I get an offer of any... More

Enjoyed a meal with group of friends (6 people) and the Pizza was lovely. The pizza menu was difficult to choose as there were a number of pizzas with a nice combination of ingredients. I was glad that the pizza base was thin and quite crispy, just what I like!
