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 and food quality was average....nothing to criticise and nothing to praise either. Typical... read more

I visited this location last month and was greeted happily. I was taken to a table straight away and was asked to take a seat. No menus were handed over. I sat there for around five minutes trying to get a staff members attention. Eventually I got up myself, approached the bar counter and asked them for the menu. As... More

One of the advantages of working at MediaCity on Salford Quays is that it allows you access to a special staff discount card called "Quay Card" which gets you discount at a variety of retail establishments on the Quays. This makes life a little more bearable for worker bees in an area that would otherwise be quite expensive. And so... More

We've eaten here a few times before and always found it fine but this time, especially being a Valentine's Day, it couldn't have been better and this particular branch of Bella Italia is by far the best we've been to. The prawn starter and main were lovely, cooked to perfection as was my partners calamari and chicken pizza. We had... More

The food as with all Bella Italian is good and inexpensive. Sadly the restaurant, which is at the entrance to the outlet mall, was very cold and draughty and most people were sat with their coats on. The soup was piping hot and served in hot bowls. When our main course was ready the restaurant had got busier and we... More
