The stylish Lowry Centre in the heart of Salford Quays in Manchester plays host to Bella Italia, part of the highly popular Italian restaurant chain with outlets throughout the country. Housed in this fabulous waterside development in Manchester, Bella Italia boasts an enviable location within the shopping centre. Diners are invited to a veritable feast of classic Italian food ranging from pizza to pasta and grills to salads. Tuck into a tasty chicken and pancetta salad with red onion, tomatoes, baby gem lettuce and Dolcelatte dressing or why not sample the Penne Marco Polo, a delicious plate of penne pasta topped with sautéed duck in a plum sauce, spring onions and sliced mushrooms. Finish off with one of Bella Italia's divine desserts and wash down with a glass of Italian red or white.

We have dined in Bella Italia, Salford Quays, a number of times before going to shows in the Lowry theatre. It is not only in the perfect location but also the food is consistently good and the service is excellent - attentive, friendly staff. Thank you. We will continue to dine in Bella Italia when visiting the Lowry

Called in here prior to going to a matinee show of Dance till Dawn. The place was really busy but we were soon served to a good meal. The waitress was very friendly and helpful.

We have just been to the Lowry to watch Dance till Dawn (great show BTW)and had a bit of lunch in Bella Italia. The service couldn't have been better, the lunch was lovely--£8.95 for 2 courses, the wine was good if a little pricey. Later my wife realized she had lost her spectacles. I called back there to see if... More

8 hungry runners plus partners made it a busy table for our waiting staff. We has a table booked for 5pm. The restaurant was fairly busy and we had our orders in and served up in no time. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. The service was excellent and the prices ain't to heavy.

Saturday evening, the day before the Greater Manchester marathon; every Italian restaurant was always going to be busy! This was fine, we expected it. Went with my girlfriend and parents and, much like all of the other runners, i wanted to carb load ahead of the gruelling run the next day! We arrived at 19.10 and were told an hour... More

I visited the Lowry Quays Theatre with my little lad for his birthday and let him choose where we went for lunch. He's only 6 and he decided that Café Rouge wasn't for him and settled on Bella Italia. I've never eaten here before but it's nicely decorated in a bright, cluttered kind of way. We were greeted with a... More
