Arrived this evening and was surprised how busy the restaurant was for a Tuesday after a bank holiday. We were greeted by a friendly English waitress who showed us to our table promptly. After ordering two courses my starter which antipasto misto tasted superb and presented excellently. Shortly after finishing our mains arrived, the lasagne was without doubt one of... More

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
