Wuntu app gives discount deals on at various restaurants. Today, it was Bella Italia. Got two pizzas and a bottle of sparkling water for £8. Serious discount. Excellent pizza freshly cooked. Waitress and staff very nice. Ideal start to a trip to the cinema.

This place has a lot going for it: location, the food is very good, the prices are okay, it's spacious and it's got nice decor. However, the staff leave the place down; with the exception of one blonde young woman, all the staff are absent-minded,...More

It was a sunny day and I had a voucher so I popped along for lunch. I plumped for a ham and mushroom pizza and accompanied it with cranberry juice. The service was efficient and the pizza was tasty. I'd eat there again!

We both enjoyed very good meals here. My wife decided on a spicy pasta dish whilst I chose a pizza. Whilst waiting we shared the olives. We didn’t wait too long for our mains which were both excellent. Washed down with the draught Italian lager....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.
