Made to wait 15 minutes before being informed that the restaurant had run out of eggs, bacon and sausages, when breakfast was still to be served for another three hours! There were no complete menu items to order and substitutions were not offered. The manager allowed the young Saturday waiter to break the news to everyone waiting and no apology... More

This is the second time we have eaten at a Bella Italia. First time was in Durham two and a half years ago and I was not impressed. We tried the Bolton outlet last Sunday and was pleasantly surprised. The starters were nice and the Pane Bella was especially nice. The Calzonewere good as was the Pizza Carne Mista. Drinks... More

Bella Italia (in Horwich, near Bolton Wanderers stadium) is in a funny location. It's essentially on stilts with a car park below it, sharing a raised platform with Chiquitos and TWO other Italian restaurants. If your are after decent Italian food, this is the choice to make. The menu is pretty decent, the food is well cooked and the staff... More

Fortunately we had booked a table. Very busy when we arrived 7.30 on Saturday. We were advised to get drink as they were running a few minutes behind. We were soon shown to our table and couldn't believe how fast our food arrived considering how busy it was. Everything we ate arrived fresh, hot and very tasty. Staff were attentive... More

Usually like Bella Italia but with my latest visit I was quite disappointed. We waited 10 minutes to get seated then another 10 before someone took our order. However noticed that there were only 3 staff on and they were slightly overwhelmed, plus they were polite enough and the food came quickly. The Pollo Cacciatore had a nice flavour however... More

Staff friendly enough. We visited just after new year but the restaurant was generally not clean and although service was good. Food was bland and a disappointment.

Booked a table for 14 new years eve. Must admit was a little apprehensive that it would be very busy and we would get poor service but that was far from the truth. We arrived 5 mins before our the time our table was booked and was offered our seats soon after. The restaurant was busy but not claustrophobic and... More

Booked our new years eve meal a while back for us and a few friends. Price for new years eve was reasonable and choice for set meal good. Restaurant was warm and friendly, music a bit loud. The problems arose when we ordered the meal. First of all they had run out of soup, then roast potatoes, then tiramisu. Add... More
