Not the best Italian in Crawley

I popped in here and had the Evening menu of 2 courses from the limited menu for £9.95 and a diet coke at £2.45 (that's a hell of a price for a half pint of diet coke by the way) total £12.40. I had the Mini Lasagne a starter size portion of their traditional beef lasagne and a main pasta... read more

Quality of the food was extremely poor, the ciabatta like cardboard and inedible, the meatballs like plastic and inedible, seems very cheap, plastic quality reheated food. With plenty of other eating places to choose from in the leisure park, I would choose elsewhere.

Ordered chicken wrapped in ham in ciabatta. Half way through eating I noticed the chicken was chewy and cold. I opened the burger and cut into part of chicken only to find it to be raw and uncooked. The waiter took it back to the kitchen and gave us a begrudging apology. Having lost our appetite we ordered the bill... More

Went there for an early dinner with my friends. The service was fantastic, the food was ok but it didn't have a lot of a flavor- not presented particularly well. Pudding was lovely had mini puddings presented well and the taste was good. Wouldn't hurry back but not bad.

I booked our local BI for my daughter's 21st. There were 23 of us! The restaurant were really easy to communicate with to arrange the booking and arrange the pre order. On arrival our waiter introduced himself and immediately got to work. He was friendly, courteous and very professional and organised. Everyone enjoyed their meals, we had a private area... More

Popped in for pizza, as Pizza Hut was too full. Previous experience of this restaurant is that it is usually busy, but we found it unusually quiet on a Saturday lunchtime. Service was very poor, although we were seated quickly, the passive-aggressive waiter never managed to do anything other than frustrate from ordering, to paying up. Food was ok, nothing... More

Visited Bella Italia for the 1st time in about 10years! Wish we hadn't bothered! We waited 45 minutes for our starter, I had mushrooms that had been left under the heat lamp for at least 15 minutes ... Mmmmm shrivelled! We then waited for a further 45 minutes for the main course. I had ordered a 'build your own pizza'... More

Stayed at nearby hotel for early morning flight from Gatwick. Hotel prices expensive so made the short walk to the Crawley Retail Park and went to the Bella Italia. Quiet busy for a Sunday evening but friendly staff and good inexpensive food made it all worthwhile, would go again if in the area.

Went in for lunch for a much looked forward to Spag Bol. For a tenner and a 20 minute wait I got a quarter of the amount of spaghetti I cook for one and a bit of meat sauce. (Mainly gravy) Would you like pepper and parmezan ? Yes please, one grind of pepper, one shave of cheese. Watery, disgusting... More

This is a typical Italian restaurant belonging to one of the nationwide chains with a good, varied menu. The restaurant was quite busy when we visited early on Saturday evening, but the service was quick and efficient and our food was tasty and the portions were a good size. I would recommend this particular Bella Italia if you want a... More
