Nice restaurant

I recently visited bells Italia with a friend and both enjoyed our visit. The decor is modern and the restaurant is very well maintained. We found the staff to be friendly. I tried prawns for starter and meet balls and pasta for main. The food was good.

We had the Taste of Italy starter - I would highly recommend this, followed by spaghetti bolognese. I asked if I could take what I couldn't finish home & they obliged. The food is fresh and filling. The restaurant is suitable for everyone - couples, groups of friends, lone diners & families. Will definitely visit again.

My boyfriend and I came here on a trip from the US in May 2015 and were very happy. Comfortable decor, good food and service. I had the linguine with meatballs, which was good. Pasta was very good but the meatballs were a little dry. Boyfriend had the tortellini in cream sauce, I'd recommend the tomato based sauce over that... More

Booked Bella Italia for Double Birthday Celebration, and was disappointed that because 2 of our party couldn't arrive until 6.40p.m. on Saturday, we were unable to avail of the early bird menu (the rest of us were there since 6.10.

Lovely comfort food, Italian dishes served more to Irish style than authentically Italian but this is what I like.

This was my first time to Bella Italia and I was thoroughly impressed. The decor was really lovely, its a very intimate restaurant. The staff were very attentive and friendly.
