The legendary Arndale Centre in central Manchester is home to the excellent Bella Italia, where great Italian food at great prices is served. Set amongst the hundreds of shops in this huge indoor shopping complex, Bella Italia offers rustic yet stylish interiors, with lots of dark polished wood and walls adorned with poster prints. There is a lovely terrace outside the main dining room where diners can enjoy the buzz of the shopping centre. Aside from the a la carte menu Bella Italia offers great value set menus too where you might start with a warming soup of the day with ciabatta followed by a Sorrentina Fusilli (fusilli pasta with tomato, mozzarella and basil sauce). Finish with a zesty lemon tart with cream.

I loved this place, we had a lovely breakfast; but it was the staff that made me want to go again! My clumsy boyfriend spilt his coffee within minutes of receiving our drinks, rather than the normal reaction you would receive with a tut and the responsibility of having to clean it up yourself, the woman came over cleared the...

We were tired of shopping and after passing by the Bella Italia restaurant decided to go in and have lunch. We were seated immediately and handed menus. The place was busy and I could see the waitresses were flying. The omens were good. We ordered milkshakes. Sadly, we ended up getting smoothies. Worse part it wasn't even cold. A milkshake... More

A nicely set out restaurant that does what you expect at breakfast time. I had the breakfast pizza fOr the second time and was not disappointed as it was again very tasty. The place was quiet and the staff were attentive. The price for 4 people was very reasonable.

This is my first trip to the branch in Manchester, previously I had fairly poor experience of its food quality in its sister branch in Leeds but thought after so many years I'd try it out once again. Boy did it disappoint! My wife had the chicken grill - its fairly warm only, the meat tasted like its been prepared... More

Really good food (great pizzas), friendly staff (our waiter was an absolute delight who made our visit all the more pleasant) and we were happily surprised by how inexpensive it was at the end. Will definitely be back

Called in for breakfast whilst shopping in Arndale. Menu has a good choice and prices are reasonable for city centre. Coffee refills are free when you purchase cooked breakfast. Our server Michelle was really helpful and couldn't do enough for you.
