Description: Found just down the road from the Grand Theatre in central Lancaster, Bella Italia is an ideal pre-show restaurant. Offering superb value set menus as well as an a la carte menu full of classic Italian fare, Bella Italia attracts a varied clientele, from theatre goers to locals, families to couple. Enjoy dishes such as the antipasti mixed platter featuring Italian smoked ham, salami, tomato and basil bruschetta, buffalo mozzarella and mixed olives - perfect for sharing. Main course include spicy chicken and smoked mozzarella pizza and chargrilled salmon fillet with tomato salsa and green beans.

Visited with hubby and 2 other family members. Had not been to Bella Italia for some years and now realise why. Sadly it was at best "average". Food looked unappetising, was luke warm and pizza was overcooked (dry). Only good thing was we were able to use Tesco Clubcard vouchers so it didn't cost too much. If we had paid... More

Great location, very good and fast service. Friendly personnel. The food was rather average, however. I don't believe I will be back.

I have visited several branches of this chain but I was surprised at how shabby this branch was. Every wooden rail was peeling, and the pillar at our window table was stained nearly all the way up. The waiter skidded on a meatball lying on the floor, totally ignored it and it was there as we left. We had garlic... More

My husband and I visited Bella Italia for the first time on a day out in Lancaster, for what we hoped would be a quick bite to eat. It was after 1.30pm, so it looked like the rush was over as there weren't many people in the restaurant. The young waiter showed us to a table quickly enough, and we... More

We called in beforehand to enquire if we could use our Gourmet Club card to recieve 25% discount on our bill to be told 'yes'. After eating and trying to pay the manager said the Gourmet card was not valid for the lunchtime menu and that this was 'in the T&Cs'. We feel that we have not been treated fairly... More

We enjoyed our meal but felt the staff were bored and did not want to be there. Food was good value for money and the meals were good so no complaints. The toilet facilities were clean.

Regularly meet a friend in Lancaster and we always have lunch at Bella Italia. The food is good and the staff always friendly and helpful. What a bonus that they take Tesco vouchers!

This is one of my favourite Bella Italia branches. The staff are always smiley and friendly and it is never a problem swapping an ingredient in a dish. I eat here fairly regularly and have never had a bad meal. My most recent visit was this week and I had a gorgeously fresh and hot Calzone. Two ingredients were swapped... More
