Italian by the Seaside

Lovely Italian cafe which is friendly to well behaved dogs, which was a nice change to eating in pubs with our dog on holiday. The menu was very diverse and they had lovely seasonal salads!

Very below standard place to eat, tables and chairs are like crappy patio furniture, service poor, food is of low standard, nothing you couldn't cook for yourself in 2 mins, felt a bit like sheep being herded in and out. The state of the toilets was very poor, we went here once and once will all it will be.

Bella Pasta has great food and a spectacular view out to sea overlooking Cromer Pier, if you want a change from the excellent fish & chips available in Cromer try this.

I have eaten here twice and on both occasions I have really enjoyed the food and the service. The staff are very polite, helpful and attentive. I love the margarita pizza here as it has the right flavours and just give it that yum sense for me. There is also a great view from the window of the pier and... More

Having had a walk around Cromer looking for somewhere to eat in the evening, this place looked like the safest bet and it didn't disappoint.Clean and quiet environment in a pleasant location with views towards the seafront. Service was quick and helpful and the food was pretty good and reasonably priced.

I have never felt compelled to write a bad review of somebody's business but this place has the location and potential to be so much better than this. The starter of dough balls were like hard fried doughnuts.....incredible how you could create something so far removed from the menu description. We also had mini mozzerella balls that looked like they... More

The end of an era? Oh well maybe they should have kept it as a pub? Maybe someone could turn it into an a cafe? We need a few mor cafes.

This restaurant not only has a great position right on the seafront, but looks even better on the inside with modern tasteful decor matched by a good menu. Food was above average (Italian of course) and sharing ownership with the Red Lion, not surprising that a good choice of wines are on offer. Not as cheap as other eateries in... More

Went here for lunch and wished we had gone elsewhere, there was only 2 staff serving on a busy day. We were one of the lucky ones and were served quicker than some but some people were waiting a long time to be served. When the food came the pasta was dry not quite cooked and had no sauce at...
