I eat out a fair bit at different places and I can honestly say this was the worst service ever. We visited Bella Italia in Manchester Arddale whilst shopping on Thursday afternoon. We arrived at 1.30 and waited 20 minutes outside resturant just to be seated. When we were seated we didn't even receive an apology for the wait. We... More

I ate lasagne for lunch and the dish was delicious, even if i expected a little bit more food in my plate. The service is also nice.

Went for breakfast today and on ordering were told there was no fruit for one meal so ordered alternatives. When it cam one alternative wasn't available either so one of us had nothing. My breakfast was very small for £4.95 and cold and after getting frozen butter I sent it back and cancelled the order. Warm coffee too. I will... More

I would definitely... More

My husband brought our two children into Manchester to meet me after work so that we could do a little shopping and enjoy a family meal together. What a disappointment! The food was below average, the service appalling and then to add to that we were overcharged for the kids meals as we were charged the price of the kids... More

Visited the Arndale Centre this morning went to Bella Italia for breakfast. To say I am disappointed is an understatement. We ordered breakfast when it eventually arrived it was disappointing. The sausage was about an inch long, the bacon might as well of been cooked yesterday as it was hard and rubbery, my fiancé had a fried egg that was... More

Went with my family for lunch , 2 members have dietary allergies which caused confusion for the staff , one member of staff even after asking gave us the wrong information which fortunately was corrected by her co- worker . The order food was quite disappointing and not worth the money .

I've been to Bella Italia with my family and a few of our friends to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were all really impressed with the food but most of all with the service. Our table was waited by Marius, a delightful chap which got all of our orders without writing anything down and he got everything right... and there... More

The title says it all really! Went in and ordered a butterflied chicken breast and a goats cheese pasta. The chicken was like leather and the pasta was under cooked. Portion sizes weren't even nearly worth the money. Couldn't be bothered sending it back, as we were starving from a 45 minute wait. Beer was dreadful. Waitress was lovely but... More

Description
The legendary Arndale Centre in central Manchester is home to the excellent Bella Italia, where great Italian food at great prices is served. Set amongst the hundreds of shops in this huge indoor shopping complex, Bella Italia offers rustic yet stylish interiors, with lots of dark polished wood and walls adorned with poster prints. There is a lovely terrace outside the main dining room where diners can enjoy the buzz of the shopping centre. Aside from the a la carte menu Bella Italia offers great value set menus too where you might start with a warming soup of the day with ciabatta followed by a Sorrentina Fusilli (fusilli pasta with tomato, mozzarella and basil sauce). Finish with a zesty lemon tart with cream.
