We had dinner here back in August 2015. Service was excellent. Staff were really friendly and were more than happy to oblige when we asked for a few extras on one of their set dishes. The restaurant was really busy the evening we visited. It was a Saturday evening around 7pm. Just found it to be really noisy and difficult... More

Always a good option for Italian in Limerick, reasonable priced, service is quick and food is consistent. Great option for catering size heat at home foods which I have also used. Their lasagna is always a good option!

Family lunch today, liked the atmosphere and friendly staff. The complimentary rosemary bread to start was really nice. We enjoyed a main course each and it was tasty and good value for money.

This was my second time to this restaurant, previously for an Early Bird and this time for Lunch. Both times the food and service have been very good. After being seated we were brought a serving of bread, very tasty, hints of garlic and rosemary. We shared the garlic mushrooms as a starter; large breaded mushrooms with garlic sauce on... More

Love the ambience of Bella Italia. The staff are attentive and when I'm not in the mood for pasta they do an amazing steak you cook yourself on a hot stone which is served with the tastiest of sides.
