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 went here before our visit to see Wicked, on arrival we noticed it was busy. I told the waiter before we sat down that we were pushed for time with just over an hour turn round before we'd have to leave. They said that would be fine, so we sat down. We waited 10 minutes before someone took our... More

I paid a visit to this particular branch of Bella Italia following a matinee showing at the nearby theatre. The restaurant was understandably busy as many people headed here after the show however we were seated and had our orders taken relatively quickly considering. The wait for the food was reasonable as it was a busy Sunday night and when... More

Food was fine - when it eventually arrived. Drinks and starters served promptly. After 45 minutes waiting for main course asked waitress who said it would be 5 mins. After a further 15 mins asked head of waiting staff who said it would be 5 mins. 10 mins later (over an hour after finishing our starters) food did arrive. Thankfully... More

Admitedly it was busy but it took an age for us to be served. Luckily we weren't in a hurry. Our waitress was pleasant enough but she seemed rushed off her feet.

We booked this restaurant for a meal before attending 'Wicked' in the Lowry Theatre and certainly were very pleasantly surprised. Smashing venue, literally right opposite the theatre and very tasteful decor. The service was second to none, no empty pots remained on the table for more than minutes, our waiter (Roberto!) was an absolute delight, and the food was absolutely... More

Had a meal here today and couldn't wait to get out of the place. Ordered the Carbonara - looked like a child's portion when it arrived. Very little meat in it and completely tasteless. My companion had the meat balls. The sauce was tasty, the portion size good but... The meat balls had a very strange, soft texture. Entirely not... More

Bread basket with dips, really nice, 3 selections of bread. I had the pasta with duck in plum sauce, very good, and the tiramisu for desert, which I have had better. Overall, an enjoyable... More
