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.

Service was quick, but both of mine and my partner's courses were colder than they should have been. The risotto was badly made and the beef ragu was very fatty.

Having visited on Bank Holiday Monday, I wanted to leave a positive review for Bella Italia. Firstly, we requested a table outside the main restaurant. Even though every other customer was inside, this request was duly accepted. Ordering drinks and our food was pretty painless. Drinks arrived promptly and we didn't have to wait too long for starters either. Children... More

On Sunday 17th May, we went for a meal here, prior to heading over to Old Trafford for a match. The food was great, the prices good, it was a match day so the place got busy fast, I'm sure that's a fact of life for all the restaurants in the Lowry.

Had an early evening meal here after a visit to Media City. There is an inside eating area, an outside one and one outside the restaurant but within the Lowry Centre which is where we were seated. We used a voucher which entitled us to a main meal for £1 when purchasing another main meal. The food was good, the... More

We visited on Friday 15th May 2015 in plenty of time for serving, and plenty of time to go to the theatre at 7.30. We asked if they could seat a table for 2. We received a jerk of the head and a grunt from a waiter who thought he was clearly too cool to be there. We sat, we... More

Pre theatre meal really handy for the theatre. It was already quite busy at 5.30pm. We had the early bird menu which was excellent value and well presented by friendly staff . The food was good and the service was excellent. First time I've been in this chain of restaurants but will certainly visit another nearer home.

I had dinner there recently, the restaurant is conveniently located at the entrance of the Lowry shopping mall. The dining room is nicely decorated but tables are a bit too close together. On the positive side the staff was welcoming, attentive and friendly. However food was disappointing: generous portions, but rather tasteless. As starter the arancini would have needed more... More

After visting the salford qauys restaurant this evening for a family birthday party myself and the rest of the party were unsatisfied with quality of food. It wasn't as fresh as you would expect from restaurants standards! I ordered the rump steak, it came with chips and peppercorn sauce. The steak was a fraction of the size I was expecting... More

We went for a tea time meal to this restaurant in Salford Quays. We were not impressed at all by the food. My cannelloni was the most un memorable I have ever had. Three cannelloni in a dried out sauce. One of our party commented that he would have had it as a starter, because of the size of portion!!... More

Popped in mid week for lunch after a trip around the BBC. Service was ok with pleasant staff. We stuck to the lunchtime menu although we had a voucher for an extra main for £1 if we had chosen off the main menu. Download of the internet to take advantage of offer. The food served was ok but nothing special.... More
