When you get to the stage of arguing that you eat at a particular place more oft then others, we chose this place to go. Now I clearly remember service being awkward & the food taking too long to come to the table & despite it being quite empty we were given the tiniest table close to other diners making... More

As expected from a 'chain' food was on the good side. Service was slow though. 25 mins from ordering to arrival with only a few people in the place. Usually expected to asked if we would like a drink first, but had to wait for ages. Then could see our food sitting waiting to be delivered (why when place was... More

My boyfriend and I went here recently and waited ages just to place our order. Once the order was placed we got the food in approx 20mins. Food was nice but they lost a lot of custom as many people got fed up waiting. Tip; go in plenty of time so your not rushing!

Love Bella and this is one of the best in Manchester. Takes ages to get attention at the Deansgate branch whereas this is quick, friendly service and the glass ceiling and oppurtunity to peoplewatch is fun and uplifting. I usually like the simple stuff-pesto or tomato pasta but the platters are great too, pizzas are generous also.

First off we were sat at a table for two beside the door. The table was wobbily and annoying as we ate our meal. The waitresses solution was to put napkins under the table which didn't help! She refused to let us to sit at the next table cause off a booking for a table of 5 which never turned... More

Went here with my wife and 2 kids (2 1/2 and 7) as a treat for my seven year old. The Kids starters were smashed up bread sticks and yesterdays salad. We complained (quietly as we were not wanting spoil my daughters treat) and got an apology of sorts. The salad was brought back after it had been run under... More

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
