We were staying in Aberdare on business, and were looking for somewhere pleasant to eat - after asking local opinions, the Bella Mima (Italian-American fusion) was recommended. What an absolute find! Only a ten minute train ride away, in the town of Mountain Ash, right by the railway station - We had lovely, friendly service and they had a good selection of Italian wines too.
The menu is perfect - not too many choices, but as all meals are freshly made to order, they were happy to accomodate my husband's food allergy, and were gracious about it.
We ordered the Spicy Beef Brisket Po'boy, Garlic Rib Eye steak and had a 9" Carni Festa (a beautiful assortment of Italian meats) handmade Pizza - absolutely amazing!! So delicious, and lovely, fresh ingredients, which arrived in a good time - Desserts were utterly amazing! Homemade Italian rum torte was immense, and the profiterole's were just beautiful! We just we could've stayed longer, as after we had had our meals, there was an adjoining bar with a warm welcome, but unfortunately had to go back to our hotel for an early start -
Highly recommended for anyone new to the area, as the welcome is so warm, and the food is so well cooked and served, it made eating out a joy x
