We visited the Bella Italia on a nice warm day for our Lunch. We arrived shortly after 12 and already the restaurant had plenty of diners which is always a promising sight. We had a choice of sitting on the terrace in the sun or inside we choose inside because it really was warm as the terrace proved to be... More

Food was ok not as good as other Italian restaurants I've been to. Very busy had to wait over an hour to be seated. Drinks were quite expensive anyway so I decided to have a cocktail which was close to £7.00 I kid you not it came in a sort of champagne flute the tiniest cocktail I have ever seen,... More

nothing special, I ordered the duck n spring onion pizza and when they brought it they had made me pasta, they exchanged it but tbh when it arrived I think the pasta looked better. Very slow service but the girl was very polite

However it didn't taste freshly cooked when it arrived, with the Italian not tasting very Italian. With lacking in flavour and authentic taste. The cheese sauce tasted mass produced. Because... More

Drinks took longer than necessary to arrive and... More
