Description: 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.

Went with my 3 grown up kids - all with well honed views about restaurants, food and service. We had made a reservation and this was ready We did not wish to be rushed and we were most certainly not. The service overall was fine, everyone was pleasant, nothing was amiss. We all ordered different starter and main courses -... More

I visited Bella Italia with a friend and my parents for a midweek dinner before going to the theatre. the service was polite and efficient. As a chain Bella Italia is a pretty standard restaurant, you're never going to have the best meal in your life, but what we did have was hot, well presented and tasted good, we had... More

Long story, short. Travelled to see Dawn French Show at The Lowry. Had booked a table for 6pm at restaurant. M62 awful! Unsuccessfully tried to phone restaurant. Arrived 30 mins late - table gone! Quality kicked in! The manager (arm in a sling but still cheerful!) couldn't have been more apologetic. Friday evening and loads of other diners queuing and... More

I will start with the one moan of our visit…service was a little slow with regard to drinks orders but that was, oh and the white wine could have been colder (a glass of ice solved that though!). The food was delicious and plenty of it too. The staff were very friendly. It was our first visit to one of... More

Very much a hit and miss restaurant. Welcome staff greet you with friendly faces but some of the serving staff could take some hospitality lessons from them. Always seems busy and food on the whole is very nice. However depending on your waitress you either have to wait ages to be served and be patient between courses or on other... More

Now I have to admit, we'd had a bad experience at this Bella Italia when we visited Salford Quays previously but since we were going to a show at the Lowry Theatre we thought we'd give it the benefit of the doubt and try it again as I had a voucher to get a 2nd main meal for £2.50. Well,... More

It was great food and the staff were very pleasant and friendly. They did not keep coming over to ask if are food was ok. I don't like it when staff keep asking if every thing is ok.
