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

We haven't been to Bella Napoli for nearly 14 years. We had a lovely experience then, and an even better one this time. We went for lunch with our two boys who are 8 and 6 to celebrate a family occasion and to let the boys experience proper pizza. The Sea Bass was out of this World! Home made pizza... More

I love this place! As a local, since childhood, I've seen many changes in the town, not all of them good. This little restaurant, however, remains charming. There is a warm, friendly welcome from the staff in this intimate, non-flashy, independent establishment and the food is authentic and plentiful. I heartily recommend it but don't eat for a while before... 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
