“Old is Gold!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

Thought I'd write a review of this place as an update. Along this stretch of shoplots, Bella Italia has outlasted several restaurant outlets. Why? Only because of its awesome food especially the pizzas.

It is a fine dining place so prices are a tad on the high side; but I think it is value for money. I had the chicken and it was fantastic. And the pizza and lasagna were great.

The downside? There was a waiter who did not know english but quickly got hold of someone else to serve. That's the unfortunate circumstances in Malaysia as a whole; lack of suitable people to do menial jobs.

Overall, it is a good place to enjoy italian along a stretch where you can people watch too.

“Great Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2011

We frequently eat out at Bella Italia in Batu Ferringhi and it is always a most enjoyable experience. Lovely staff and really great Pizza. I don't know why people keep on going to the old and tired Marios, when Bella Italia is just 3 shops up the road serving far better food in much nicer surrounds!
