First course came at 8 after two requests for updates and being told manager would come over to explain the delay. Finally got main at nine and still no managers explanation and then to... More

Love Bella Italia and am on mailing list so received voucher code for use today of 2 pizza or pasta, bottle of wine and sharing chilli bread for £20-didn't need my arm twisting. Went with hubby and food was really good, and as we had such a bargain, we pushed the boat out and had pudding and coffees. Don't usually... More

Visited Bella Italia after going to the pictures with my mum. The restaurant was semi busy, but there were still plenty of tables. I asked for a table for two, and was told "no, we have a table for 12 booked in 10 minutes and we're understaffed" I assumed that we were turned away as the table for 12 was... More

The staff were really good. The food was only OK but with a vouchercode it was super good value for money (it really wouldn't be that expensive anyway) and I would certainly go back again if in the area.

After our return from holiday, we decided to round things off with a meal at the Bella Italia at the Middlebrook Retail and Leisure Park in Horwich. The surroundings are fun, light and helps you relax. The service was friendly and efficient but by no means obtrusive. The food was fantastic with my pasta main of Agnello Tagliatelle being light...

Contrary to the views of previous reviewers, my husband & I really liked the décor. It is bright, cheerful, clean and witty. I particularly liked the pictures dotted around the place. The service provided by Victor was excellent and the price comparable with similar establishments. I used vouchers from well-known supermarket to pay for the meal and there was no... More
