Will not be going back to this restaurant. Food was poor. Service was ok. One of our plates had a huge chip out of the side of it and the toilets were disgusting. Very Poor and disappointing.

We've been to Bella Italia on several occasions for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. Consistently excellent food and pleasant service. Even when busy the service is reasonably quick. Prices are very good.

What a smashing night out. Our waitress Zara was brilliant as was the wine and food. I have used Bella Italia in Bristol a number of times but this was better. Highly recommended as a good stop In Inverness.

Bella Italia in Inverness boasts a prime city centre location close to the riverside and just moments away from Inverness Castle. The dining room is an inviting space decked out in Bella Italia's signature rustic style. Warm tones, tiled flooring and walls adorned with huge poster prints create a welcoming ambience. As for the food, the a la carte menu is wide and varied featuring a good selection of pizzas, pasta and grilled meat and fish. There is also a superb set menu where you could be tucking into an Italian salad for starters followed by crispy pancetta and mushroom penne pasta with an Italian wine sauce and rounded off with cream filled profiteroles with a hot chocolate sauce.
