Description: The stylish Lowry Centre in the heart of Salford Quays in Manchester plays host to Bella Italia, part of the highly popular Italian restaurant chain with outlets throughout the country. Housed in this fabulous waterside development in Manchester, Bella Italia boasts an enviable location within the shopping centre. Diners are invited to a veritable feast of classic Italian food ranging from pizza to pasta and grills to salads. Tuck into a tasty chicken and pancetta salad with red onion, tomatoes, baby gem lettuce and Dolcelatte dressing or why not sample the Penne Marco Polo, a delicious plate of penne pasta topped with sautéed duck in a plum sauce, spring onions and sliced mushrooms. Finish off with one of Bella Italia's divine desserts and wash down with a glass of Italian red or white.

“Its got a formula and it works OK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We went for a pre theatre meal. The deal is £9.95 for 2 courses. Polite efficient waiters and boss man. Quickly served with reasonable price bottle of Sangiovese. My wife opted for a la carte and had calamari (good) I had mushrooms and ciabatta (OK bit light on mushrooms) For mains we had different types of pasta, both perfectly fine. Judged against the price it was all good. Bill brought on request. Enjoyed it.
You could do a lot worse before you head off to the theatre.
By the way it was heaving.

“Terrible service. Need to take a course on customer service!!!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

Rang to book a table, was told by an extremely rude ignorant man that he was too busy to book me a table and he didn't have time to look in the booking diary and I would have to phone him back at 8pm!!!!!!! before putting the phone down on me. Needless to say I did not go to the restaurant and will not be going at any point in the future. Disgusting service.
