We used to frequent this little restaurant often in the past and decided on the spur of the moment to pop in after our return from Sicily.. now I know it wouldn't be the same as being on holiday however the restaurant just seemed to lack both in taste of the food and ambiance. The staff were polite yet there... More

My wife, my mam and I had lunch at Bella Italia recently and we were all highly impressed. Bella Italia is deceptively big, from the street it looks quite small but it expands back and out, so there's actual loads of room. There's a really nice ambience here too. The food we had was excellent and tasted really fresh and... More

I revisited this Bistro after some years away and it was great to see that the food is still the same, very efficient service and they also do a takeaway. It gets very busy for their early bird so I would recommend making a booking.

Was presented with a plate with two pieces bread and lasagna and a bowl of salad. Found the salad to be a little oniony but that's just a taste thing for me the... More

Was looking for an Italian restaurant as I'm Italian. Was there last night with my family. Very disappointed with the starter I would get better prawns in my local Chinese takeaway. The pizza's were the worst I ever seen. Asked for seafood pasta there was more onions than fish about 4 mussels and 1 prawn. The meat was just a... More

So as this is an Italian restaurant its a bit strange that it has the best steak in Limerick by a mile (and also anywhere else I have had steak around the world). The fillet steak-stone is to die for and I would highly recommend it. My wife and I eat here on a regular basis.. The staff in Bella... More
