Description: Dine in one of Manchester's most lively and cosmopolitan areas at the brilliant Bella Italia restaurant in Deansgate. Set amongst the areas numerous restaurants and bars, Bella Italia is a top spot for affordable Italian dining. Warm colours create a cosy ambience and the typical bistro style furnishings are a trademark style of Bella Italias throughout the UK. The menu offers a whole host of Italian classics from pizza to pasta and salads to grilled meat and fish. Try the succulent Italian burger served with ciabatta and mozzarella or the juicy chargrilled salmon steak with green beans, roasted new potatoes and olive and tomato salsa. The dessert list is too good to miss with tiramisu, lemon tart and banoffee pie amongst others to choose from.

“Great service - average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

The staff are lovely, they were really giving 100%. But the food was just not worth the price, it was very average. And avoid the milkshakes, very watery. I think they made them with ice instead of ice cream.
Overall - with the best of intentions of the staff, unfortunately it's just not up to scratch.

“CHICKEN PASTA BAKE FOR £12-EXPENSIVE”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

3 of us went for a pre-concert meal. I ordered the chicken pasta bake, it was obviously pre-cooked and microwaved, because the sauce had merged into the pasta, which made it very dry and the pasta was a bit soggy. It was awful, i left most of it and waitress didnt even think to ask how was the meal. However the other 2 people I was with enjoyed their pizzas. I think it’s expensive for what it is. I feel it is geared up to people with vouchers who get 2 for 1 or 25%off. Would go again but order a different meal as long as I had a voucher.
