Perfect place to get your Italian fix on

Our server Emil was the real star of this restaurant as he graciously and energetically recommended and served us a delicious meal of some Italian staples that we were in dire need of after 10 days of travel to Africa. We enjoyed a wonderful pizza and spaghetti bolognese which was very tasty and... read more

Although the staff was helpful, the food was bad. I have been there with three of my family members. We ordered two pasta dishes and two lasagnes. None of them was good at all. They were even worse than the ones you can get from the supermarket's ready made food section. Well, they were edible, but if you see eating... More

Our trip to the restaurant bella Regina is one to be quickly forgotten. We came here for New Year's Eve for a quick bite to eat before the festivities so it was quite busy. When we got our table it was still dirty from the previous customers which I wouldn't have minded only for the fact that when we asked... More

Worthless, nothing good to report this time. Food was cold. Only 3 of our group got their food. The 4th they forgot. Staff very uninterested and very slow. And they didn't even bring our forks and knives. We had the chef's mix. But is was a pan full bad cheese and nothing else. Very dissatisfied

Have eaten here on previous visits as it serves good pizza and pasta in a nice easy comfortable setting. Emil served us both nights and he could not do enough to help despite being run off his feat by very some very demanding and slightly rude clients. The pizza's were hot and tasty and more than big enough. We shared... More

This is a small, friendly restaurant, with generous portions and wonderful customer service. It really felt like we were eating dinner at a friend' home. The waiter helped us decide what to order, without being pushy, and the food was soooo good! We had the minestrone soup and lasagne, and I only wish we had more room so I could... More

Strolling through Amsterdam with hungry kids we spontaneously decided to have lunch at "Bella Regina". The service was quick and friendly and the food (Pizzas Margherita and Mozzarella and Spaghetti Carbonara) came fresh and tasty. Don't expect a gourmet restaurant but good basic italian kitchen standard, very suitable for families.

First day in Amsterdam, cold, you don't know where to go and you choose something that looks reasonable close to your new home. Bella Regina is an Italian restaurant with a lot of tables, you feel compressed there. Service was fast at the beginning, but later on the waiter just forgot about pizza and had to order it to the...

I am reviewing this place mainly because of the good service we got from the waiter (Hans). A very pleasant and friendly young man. The meal was also really good.

We entered the shop and it took 20 mins to get served I had to get our own menu because we were hungry. After ordering it took another 10 minutes to get that. Only good thing the food was faster then the service and the food is average at best. Lucky there is a coffee shop 2 min walk away
