Description: Situated in the heart of Chester city centre, Bella Italia is a popular dining destination for those looking for well priced good quality Italian food. This well loved Chester restaurant is based in a pretty period building and offers a warm and inviting ambience. The menu ranges from authentic Italian pizzas to tasty pastas, meat and fish dishes. Indulge in a plate of mixed antipasto before diving into a bowl of chicken and spinach fusilli in a creamy gorgonzola sauce or a chargrilled salmon fillet served with green beans, roasted new potatoes and a tomato and red onion salsa. Ideal for friends, family and work colleagues, there really is something for everyone at Bella Italia Chester.

“Pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The food is always very good here, occasionally the waiting is a little lax, but nothing too bad. The atmosphere is nice, gives a sense of Italy, with the pop art poster wallpaper, it's actually pretty pleasant. Food good, prices are fair.

“A little bit of Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We loved it here.

Instead of ordering a main course each we ordered lots of starters to share as a 'tapas' style lunch and it was fantastic.

Washed down with a glass of red wine it was a great little lunch. Good service and good staff and great ambience. What more could you ask for?

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We wanted a quick meal and went to Bella Italia because it was close and it was raining! It served its purpose and was relatively inexpensive, but the food wasn't great, the restaurant wasn't particularly nice and the service was poor. Our other meals in Chester were excellent (notably The Bombay Palace and La Tasca) so we wouldn't come here again.

“OK for a quick meal - better Italians in Chester”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Fine for a quick cheap lunch, but walk further down bridge street and you will find better Italians, but at a price
