Since La Bella opened in Limerick it has become and remains one of my favourite restaurants. The food is sublime, the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. It is a little gem with glorious take away food. My only small grievance is the substitution of the basket of fresh bread rolls with plastic wrapped breadsticks, this irritates me as it ruins...

Great choice on the menu, both pasta dishes and steak on the stone well worth trying. Might not be the most lavish restaurant, but the food most certainly makes it a well worth visit

I cannot say enough about this restaurant. Italian food at its best. I've tried almost everything and nothing fails to delight on the menu. Good value for money and decent portions, really delicious fresh food. A great kids menu with read food, not a chicken nugget in sight!
