Let's be honest, the good isn't great and isn't really Italian. Had two meals here - the pulled pork the first time was dreadful. Fat and no BBQ sauce. Second time was ok. Kids menu decent value. Prezzo is better and that's where we are going now.

Visited here today and the customer service was absolutely shocking. I had not visited a Bella Italia prior to this and after today, I most definitely will not be returning. The problems started from when we first walked in, we were standing there for a couple of minutes before someone actually acknowledged our presence. He didn't seem enthusiastic at all... More

Had a good meal here. Waitress looked after us well and was very friendly. I asked about beers and she was very informative about alcohol content. She probably deduced that I was asking because I was driving. My son had the pizza bread sticks and a pizza. Should have realised that this would be too much for him to eat.... More

One of the worst restaurant experiences I have ever had. This sin't the first time we have been to Bella but this will probably be the last. Decided to go out for a nice family lunch today and my 7 year old daughter wanted to go to Bella Italia. Arrived at about 1230 and was shown to a table where... More

Not that impressed. Very generous with the pasta not so much with the sauce. A family of very undisciplined children were close by so that didn't help.

Arrived at 8pm , plenty of empty tables were shown to one tucked away in a corner and given menus. Only two staff working and 20 mins later we had not been asked for choices or whether we would like drinks. So we left and went to Frankie & Benny's which was cheaper and the food, service and atmosphere were... More

Came here for dinner prior to a movie date. Allowed plenty of time for a leisurely dinner - which didn't happen. General greeting was vague and 'you can sit where you like' - not an enthusiastic welcome. Almost like it was an effort to let us in. Took a while for order to be taken - had to attract attention...
