It was my friend Adrians birthday. We weren't going to go out for dinner as we were only meant to be going to the cinema, but Adrian decided that we should go as it was his birthday. It was a very pleasurable experience as we made the staff aware it was my dear friends birthday, not so we could get... More

So we thought we would come here for some dinner after watching a film at the cinema, started on a bad note as soon as we walked in! Was "greeted" by the manager at the host desk without a smile or hello just "table for two?" "Follow me" very unenthusiastically! Put our menus on the table and walked off without... More

Family gathering for a birthday. Big party. 19 people. Family member contacted the restaurant before hand. Manager of restaurant wrote down incorrect amount of people. A family member took a cake down to the restaurant and added more people to the party. Arrived on the evening as planned. One experienced waitress who had to deal with the incorrect information taken... More

We were a large group enjoying a post-Christmas evening out. Service was a little slow but that was fine, one or two of the dishes were cold when they arrived. I think the staff were a little stretched, but they were certainly trying their best. We've had better meals there on other occasions.

Been to this bella italia 3 weeks in a row now and each time has been amazing for both service and food. Had a lovely girl named michaela serve us all 3 visits and speaking as a waitress from a competing company she really is an asset to your restaurant and someone i wish i had on my waitressing team....

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.
