Booked to eat here midweek, restaurant fairly quiet. Service very friendly and attentive but not overly. Food was expensive for the amount we had but was very fresh and tasty. Good location for bars etc at Riverside.

Such a lovely evening celebrating my friends birthday. Really great staff and atmosphere. Was particularly impressed with one waiter named Tom who ensured we had a really great night. Very friendly and helpful. We even got given prosecco to celebrate!

I went for my birthday dinner with a group of friends and it was a fantastic time. Our server, Tom, was friendly, helpful and attentive. Food was delicious (I think the menu had significantly changed for the better from the last time I had been there), particularly the caramelised onion pizza bread and the chicken lasagne. Free birthday prosecco was... More

Service was painfully slow, meals brought out at different times and was then cold and had to be sent back, not once were we asked if we had any issues or did we enjoy our meal, Could understand if it was busy but was really quiet in there, it took that long to eat a main and a sweet we... 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.
