“Excellent Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Visited on a Saturday night and the restaurant was quite busy at a time when Keswick in general was fairly quiet, no doubt due to people saving their money with Christmas fast approaching. My wife had the Camembert Rounds, deep fried & served with cranberry sauce as a starter and I had Buffalo Mozzarella & Tomato Salad. Both met with our full satisfaction.

For mains, we had the Lasagne Casa Bella, with toasted Ciabatta and Spaghetti Sorento with chicken. Both were very healthy portions and tasted delicious. A nice touch was that as well as the usual bottled Peroni and the like, the restaurant stocked bottles of real ale from the local Keswick Brewery. Service was very friendly and efficient without being intrusive.

The restaurant is also a Gelateria and we finished off with a bowl of vanilla and chocolate ice cream which was an excellent way to end the meal. We will definitely visit again when we are next in Keswick.

“A little disappointed. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

We've eaten here before , a few years ago, and had a lovely meal but unfortunately on this occasion it was pretty average. The pasta was over cooked and sauce not as tasty as I would expect , But the portions were large. The staff were attentive , friendly and the service very quick, (which sort of goes against the grain for an Italian restaurant... )
The ice creams / sundaes that were being served all around us looked amazing.

“Keswick for the weekend.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

We met up with a group of friends here. We wanted to enjoy a relaxed meal in pleasant, comfortable surroundings. We had a lot of reminiscing to do. Originally from this area, we had all disappeared to different parts of the Globe. We were 'catching up' after far too long. On entering Casa Bella, we were greeted with smiles and made to feel very welcome. Tables had been arranged so that we could all sit comfortably together. The service was excellent, as were the food and wine. The restaurant was full but we weren't rushed at all. We enjoyed a really tasty selection of Italian food and wine. At the end of a lovely evening, we felt that our custom had been truly appreciated. Good food, professional staff and a very nice atmosphere. We will definitely eat here again.

“Very good restaurant. One of the best in town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

We always make for this restaurant when we are in Keswick and we have yet to have a poor meal. Others must think the same because the restaurant is always full even on traditionally quiet midweek evenings. This time we both had thin crust pizzas and found them to very good. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the staff are very are helpful, friendly and efficient.

“Food and Atmosphere are tops!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Wonderful welcome and followed by a very well cooked and delicious meal. Great menu, plenty of choice at a reasonable price. Very attentive staff, who seemed happy at their work. If you don't want Italian try the Surf n Turf, I can vouch for a great dish.
