Excellent serviced...I think our waitress was called Iveta (from till receipt) My daughter said 'she makes me smile' we had a wonderful experience, great food and great service. She made friendly conversation and seemed genuinely interested in how we enjoyed our meal.

It was great food at a great price with friendly staff. The only thing I had wrong with it was that there was a small choice of vegan food l.

Bella's food is always consistent, we've never had a bad meal. Today though I had to review as when I booked I told them it was our family Valentines meal and when we walked in they had made it really cute for my 5 year old. With a home made card, hearts, candle and rose. Made my little girls day.... More

Came in today for a cheeky late lunch after a shopping trip with mother....We were greeted by a friendly man who quickly helped us with menus and drinks while we checked out the menu. Mum had a gorgeous spinach ricotta (i got jealous) i had pollo calzone. Our meals quickly came and were very tasty. We sent our praises to... More

Perched along the pretty riverside in Norwich city centre, Bella Italia is a great place to enjoy a bite to eat, Italian style. Just a few streets away from Norwich train station, this waterside branch of Bella Italia, one of three in Norwich, offers a relaxed, family style ambience. Typical rustic Italian interiors with tiled flooring and walls adorned with poster prints of all sizes create just the right atmosphere for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The a la carte menu is a veritable feast of classic Italian dishes, such as the Polpette Americano (meatballs in a rich tomato sauce atop a bed of steaming spaghetti) or the succulent sirloin steak fillet served with garlic mushrooms, fries and a rocket salad. Those with a sweet tooth are in for a treat with the dessert list with the likes of tiramisu and mascarpone cheesecake on offer.
