I simply love Bella. Was recommended to me by a friend years ago for an anniversary dinner and I was not disappointed. I go as often as I can even for lunch now. Amazing selection of starters, mains and desserts; all which are very generously portioned. Staff are always helpful and attentive. I also love that you can buy some... More

Decent all the way around. Service was good and very quick. Food was good, though nothing particularly special.

I walked around looking at different menus to book a table for the one night we were in Limerick and decided on here as I love Italian. We weren't disappointed, great food, lovely staff & very reasonably priced. Also its not to big and intimating, very cosy little restaurant!

Had dinner here last week. Had ravioli but it was nothing special. The atmosphere was good and service ok but the food was just like the Italian food from tesco or M+S not any more authentic and the portions weren't very big. They don't do half portions of pasta if you want a taste of different items on the menu.

Very nice Italian, great selection of pastas and pizzas. The margarita pizza with anchovies was authentic Italian. Carbonara was good but with too much cream. Great service!

Very cute little place for lunch or dinner. They had a €10. Lunch w/glass of wine included, which looked quite nice. I had meatballs w/greens salad and coleslaw (?) which seemed to come with everything. It may be a regional thing, not sure? With a glass of wine and coffee for €15. But it was good. I would go again.... More

After we've tried their lava stone steaks. We've been coming back to Bella Italia for it specially when we have visitors. We always say that eating is an experience. This one would be literally an experience. Cooking your own steak with a massive bib on your table is something that we don't get to experience regularly. Reasonably priced and very... More
