“Dreams of Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

When you enter Ristorante Bella Italia @ Belissa Row, its like stepping in a gateway to Italy itself. The decor was simple and Italian with romantic ambiance. You are always greeted and served with a warm pleasant smile that seems genuine enough. Then there is the food, just fantastic and fulfilling. The Risottos on the menu are superb.. cooked to perfection and the Carbonara was great too. The prices are very reasonable.

“Excellent value for money, will definitely return again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

We had the margherita pizza, smoked duck ravioli and tiramisu. Everything was simply delicious, and the service was attentive but not intrusive.

“Hidden Gem in Belissa Row”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

I would consider this is one of the best Italian restaurant in Penang. The food quality is great and authentic. The service is good and the environment deco is cozy. This restaurant is highly recommended for couples or business meals.

The spaghetti, Lasagna and Pizzas are great. I like the carbonara as the creamy taste really hardly to be found in other Italian restaurant. The food prices is within the range of RM20-RM40. As this restaurant is highly rated, thus I would suggest a table reservation must be made so that you are secured for a seat especially during dining peak hours.

“Relatively good Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Good service, with good Italian food such as Pizza, dessert and fettuccine carbonara and lasagna. Good environment near to the sea, will be suitable for couples. The price is reasonable at a restaurant rate, e.g. RM20-RM40 for main meal.
