We had a great meal here after our sons graduation ceremony at the Dome- so it was a very convenient location for us. The restaurant was comfortable and spacious with good seating. Delicious food from a great menu. The service was very friendly and efficient- especially from Laurence- who looked after us attentively.

We had a table booked at 7.30pm Sunday night and it was very busy so I expected the service to be slow. The service was good and the waiters were informative and attentive. We couldn't make our minds up but Jack not only gave us some suggestions but was spot on. I had meatballs with spaghetti ( sorry can't remember... More

I haven’t visited Bella Italia/pasta for over 10 years as my last experience was horrible. Whilst in Brighton my partner suggested we go there for dinner. I was tad hesitant but opted to go. I was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere and food was really good. The restaurant was full but we never felt as if we were being rushed to... More

This would have been our 3rd visit over the passed few years and I must say it was the worse, first of all we asked for a starter and when our main meals arrived we asked where the starters were and they flat out denied us asking for them, then it was rudeness all the way, even when we asked...

Very enjoyable evening with great atmosphere and happy staff. Fast service and lovely food. Perfect for a meal before the theatre. We were served by Katie who was so attentive and made my wife and I feel so welcome. She made sure everything was ok with us for the duration of our visit. Would definitely return soon.

My wife and I ate here on a wet June evening. Our first impression of the staff was that they were a bit abrupt, trying to steer us to a table which suited them rather than one which was to our liking. However a compromise was achieved and I warmed more to the service as the evening went on. We... More

Took my boy to his swimming lesson with my wife, came out hungry. It was a typical sunny, 22 degrees day and North Street was looking more like the South of France than South of England. I sometimes forget just how nice a place Brighton is, but then I'm reminded of it when I see how much the mortgage is... More

The menu looked great with a variety of dishes we were disappointed with our food one dish was slightly burnt the other meal was tasteless and chicken dry. The waitress was polite and informed the manger who then made adjustment to our bill.

Thanks for taking the time to leave your review. They're all really important to us - the good as well as the bad! I'm really sorry to hear about your recent disappointment with your meal with us. This is certainly not up the standard we like to keep here at Bella, and it's something we want to look into. If... More

Bella Italia Brighton couldn't ask for a better location within the vibrant southern seaside city. Situated in the charming area known as The Lanes, with its numerous antique shops and jewellers, Bella Italia offers both locals and visitors great Italian grub at accessible prices. Tuck into starters such as the mushrooms baked in mascarpone, spinach and garlic sauce with ciabatta followed by a 7oz sirloin steak with garlic butter, mushrooms, fried and rocket accompanied by a sauce of your choice. Round off with a classic banoffee pie with sprinkled amaretti biscuits and zabaglione cream. All this accompanied by a traditional Italian Peroni beer or a glass of Chianti. If you're looking for a good value Italian restaurant in Brighton, Bella Italia certainly fits the bill.
