My husband and I ate here whilst in manchester celebrating his birthday. The staff were very welcoming and we were shown to a table right in the window. There was so much choice for the food. We ordered a cocktail pitcher and got 3 drinks each out of it so it was a generous amount of drink. Now what can... More

I visited Bella Italia in the Arndale Centre while on a long weekend with my wife. She loves shopping, I do not so to find somewhere to take the load off and enjoy a glass of wine was welcome. On this occasion that 'somewhere' was Bella Italia. Half of the seating area was closed as it was getting close to... More

Visited last month with friends. Good location in the shopping centre if you don't fancy the food court fast food! Ordered from the Lunch menu, which we had to ask for, and food was fine. The restaurant was certainly understaffed. Our order took a while to be taken and plates a long time to be cleared, then we waited a... More

Can be very busy at times but does not affect the service or the food. You can eat out on the front of the restaurant or inside (whre it is a little quieter).

I took my mum for dinner at Bella Italia during our stay in Manchester last Fall. It's right opposite to Piccadilly Gardens and close to our Mercure Hotel where we stayed. The restaurant has a beautiful atmosphere with classic Italian steel decor and soft lights. Food was amazing but there was a long waiting list before we were seated. I... More

Me and my boyfriend stopped here back in October for breakfast before getting our train back home and I can honestly say it was one of the best full English breakfast we have ever had. The lady who served us was lovely and we will definitely be visiting again later in the year!

I'm unfamiliar with Manchester, I was away on a course for a few days. Wanting somewhere to eat & knowing no better, I went in here with 2 colleagues...what a mistake. The service throughout was terrible, we were either neglected, served with a snarl or served incorrectly. Our food (when it eventually came) was terrible and missed key components (no... More

I visited Bella Italia on a Wednesday lunchtime with my husband and two adult children. My husband and son shared a hot cheese starter which they really enjoyed. My daughter and I shared a tomato garlic bread which was overcooked and bland. For main course my husband chose and enjoyed the burger and my son had a lovely pizza. My... More

We went to Bella Italia quite late on about 7pm, the restaurant was fairly quiet, but we were served quickly, and the food was to a good standard. There only appeared to be two members of staff working but they were both polite and served us quickly.
