There are lots of Italian restaurants In tralee as in most of ireland and they vary a great deal in authenticity. Having lived many years in Italy I found the food here very Italian. The crab salad was a slight irish fusion and the vinaigrette was excellent. The saltimbocca with fresh sage was delicious albeit chicken. The set menu is... More

We were 13 family members dining together for one Friday night in Tralee. Luckily we booked a week in advance, as this place is busy and we wanted a single table for all 13 of us. Really genuine and welcoming hosts. Good quality food, well enjoyed by all and there's no better finishing note than a bill that puts a... More

The waiter had to came to the table twice as... More

Have visited Bella Bia on numerous occasions over the years and it always lives up to expectations. The food is always top class and the staff are excellent. Would recommend it highly . Book in advance as it gets very busy.

Return trip to Bella Bia. Both times the food has been really good. Loved the bruschetta & obviously had pasta both times. Can't find fault with either meal that I had. Also the pricing is reasonable. Cozy setting.

If you haven't been here yet you are missing out. Fantastic food and wine without paying a fortune. Beautiful setting with candles on each table, relaxing background music and atmosphere. They also do a fantastic early bird menu for the great value of €13.95 (starter, main, tea/coffee)

We were a party of 9 golfers all hungry after a hard day's "work". This delightful little restaurant was recommended to us by staff at the excellent Grand Hotel and it certainly lived up to their description of it. The restaurant staff were extremely attentive and couldn't do enough to make our visit thoroughly enjoyable. The food was excellent and... More

Bella Bia has very basic Italian food nothing extaordinary. Unfortunately it is extremely small and even when sitting out in the back area it feels very cramped. However if it is a light lunch you are looking for it is perfect and moderately cheap.
