A nice, comfortable restaurant

This is a nice local Italian, nothing to fancy but great staff and great food. Have only eaten off the lunch menu which is good value for money.

Went here for a meal to celebrate our anniversary with our young daughter. Staff very attentive. Portions huge. Dough ball starter was yummy, one portion had about 30 doughballs on! My husband had a calzone which was massive, suited his appetite. My profiterole dessert was to die for. Food lovely. No wonder this place is rated so highly. We shall... More

This is the fourth time that my husband and I have eaten here and we are slowly making our way through the menu. The food is amazing and portions are very generous. My grandmother is Italian and am looking forward to introducing her to this authentic Italian restaurant.

I didn't enjoy my dinner ! Is not an home made Italian restaurant.. I had pasta and it was over cooked plus the sauce was acid.. I'm sorry to say that because I 'm Italian... But it wasn't a really Italian taste! It could be good to someone that never been in Italy..

This place is a true gem and a rare find. Somewhere where the food is authentic and fresh, and the menu is great too with a great choice. The food is really good, not like the chain restaurants you normally find. I would recommend this restaurant!

I have always had a good meal in Ciao Bella. The Calzone is an option I always go for with a touch of their house chilli sauce (hotter than Tabasco/Cholula sauce). The portions are generally quite big so if you want more than one course make sure you are hungry!

It had been some while since we visited this lovely eatery, so my wife, Angela and I invaded it for lunch on Sunday and weren't disappointed.The decor is as I remembered it: intriguing pictures on the walls, a large expanse of glass at one end, giving it an airy feel. The service is always professional, friendly, and welcoming. I kicked... More
