We visited Bella as our normal Restuarant was booked up. Our last visit was some time ago, we arrived early at 6:45 on a Saturday evening. The welcome was good and we soon choose our food, we had a bottle of house red which could have been warmer. The starters were good, but the plates for the... read more

The owner (and cook himself) is the typical fun friendly amazing Italian man who just wants your experience to be unforgettable. The food is fresh and well cooked, really Italian( I am Italian and I know what I am saying !), the size of the dishes are really big ( I could not finish my meal!) And the bill was... More

Sadly the worst Italian food. we have had in the UK Beautiful. restaurant and lovely owners. It is obvious they left Italy years ago as the food was geared to the Brits and not remotely Italian. As said in earlier review the Patron recommended the wine which was delicious but at £25 it was very overprice There are many excellent... More

Turned up without a booking on a Friday evening, ordered a fabulous bottle of Amerone, our meals were all of the specials menu. My main course was a superb sea bass, perfectly cooked, certainly not the cheapest meal I've had but one of the best, a proper Italian Italian restaurant. Pays your money etc etc and returning this evening with... More

I read a few of the other reviews and decided to share my experience. The proprietor recommends a bottle of wine, doesn't mention the price. Myself and 4 friends went for dinner a few weeks ago, he brought a recommended bottle of wine and poured for us, he only got 4 glasses out of the bottle so we had to... More

We went to this restaurant on Saturday as we had heard good reviews about it. The owners were very very friendly and extremely welcoming. However, the food was extremely disappointing. My minestrone soup was completely tasteless? I had to put on endless pepper in order to get some sort of flavour/taste! How can an Italian restaurant not make good minestrone... More

Went for a family lunch today and was thoroughly impressed. Ordered calamari and whitebait to start both were lovely and portion sizes were generous. For mains we ordered a mixture of dishes from the a la carte and set lunch menus, these included a generous rump steak (cooked and seasoned perfectly) and the fresh pasta special. The food was exactly... More

I nice little, family-run restaurant, with excellent food, a wonderful menu and at good prices. They treated us like friends, although it was the first time we visited. Well worth a visit
