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 had a family meal for our sons 21st and it was a fabulous meal, lovely atmosphere and lovely staff. They do gluten free which is great, the only fault I would say is the gluten free pizza a little hard around the edges so had to cut off that part and same with the ciabatta style flat bread for...

Atmosphere was great, service very good. however considering it was for 4 people with a prawn starter, soup, mozzerelle salad and mushroons, main calazone, pizza, carbonara and spag bol, with a bottle of wine and drinks. The bill came to £110.00 . considering there was no meat ordered i would say at that price its disgraceful. Will not be going... More

Lovely restaurant with a good atmosphere, the food was delicious even though the service was a bit slow however it was a Saturday night and very busy. Bruschetta was probably the best I have tasted (outside of Italy of course!) and found the Lasagne quite tasty too. Husband thought both the meatball starter and Ragu main course were 'beautiful'.

I went to Bella Italia last week with two of my friends before watching Wicked at The Lowry Theatre.

We asked for a table for a pre-theatre meal and requested attentive service. We got it. Our table was ready although we arrived 15 minutes early. The waiter was very attentive and food and drinks arrived quickly. The food was good. We arrived at the Harvester next morning for breakfast and although we were well in time, they refused us...

The attention to detail by the staff is second to non, it's been a long time since I have seen customer service like this . The food is very tasty and good value for money.

I have never eaten this badly at an Italian restaurant. I ordered a Spaghetti Carbonara - pasta was totally over-cooked and sauce watery and tasteless. After having had no more than two bites, I called the manager on duty who took back the pasta. Instead I ordered a Lasagna, thinking it's difficult to ruin that - how wrong I was!... More
