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

This was the first time we had been to this restaurant and it won't be the last. My boyfriend and i could not fault it at all. Lovely food, full of flavour, excellent waiter/waitress service, friendly and courteous. Just a really nice restaurant and i would definitely recommend it. We will be going back very soon.

Just as the title states, really poor service, me and my other half had to wait 35 minutes for our plates to be cleared away. I honestly felt as though we were being ignored in the end as everyone around us were being seen to and we were just left. Totally ridiculous. Food itself was pretty average, I had the... 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.
