First of all, the food is lovely. The place has a new look too which is lovely. However even with the Tesco vouchers, the meal came to £45. The bill wasn't wrong, we were just surprised at how much the food is. We'll come back as we enjoyed the food.

Popped in for lunch on a Sunday in August. The table we chose and those around us had been set up even though they were dirty. There were breadcrumbs and bits of old food on the table. Surely they should have all been wiped down before setting them. There were only about 8 tables eating but the service was incredibly... More

Bella is ideal for a good Italian meal, well cooked, served quickly. Range of foods as with all in the chain. Advisable to book at weekends and during school holidays.

Went for a meal Friday 26th and didn't expect the service we got! Didn't get asked what we wanted a £17.95 rib eye steak to be cooked like and they ran out of pepper corn sauce at 7:45pm!!! The steak had more fat than the steak itself, the chips you could tell was frozen and the overall service was rushed!... More

Always enjoyed going here, however last few times I have been the standards just keep dropping. We were sat away from the main area and was pretty much forgotten about and when the food came, not saying it was crap but its been nicer from there in the past. Would go back but probably at a quieter time

Me and my boyfriend came here for an evening meal on bank holiday Monday... Was told there would be a wait which was fine, went to the bar to order drinks to be waiting 20 mins before we even asked for our order of drinks (there was only one other person at the bar)... Eventually got shown to our table... More

Me and my husband went for an evening meal. Walked in to a member of staff who didn't look interested. Then ordered Lasagne and they had ran out. Also the waitress never made eye contact and messed up our starter order. Food nice but over priced.

Even noticed we were holding hands so set the romantic scene for us by lighting candle. Caramelised onion sharing bread for starter gorgeous. Partner King prawn chilli pasta. I had cannelloni and both had salted caramel dessert. Meal was gorgeous.... More

I've been to a few Bella's over years so this is pretty generic, I really like the food, never been disappointed but they also have a great kids menu and its always an easy relaxed meal out. Staff are always polite, at least those I've dealt with, the last time we visited they were down to one oven, so service... More

Visited about 6pm Sunday so it was busy & lots of kids/noise. We're told it was a 15 min wait for a table & further 30min wait for food as they were short staffed. They have a good selection of San pel flavours & I opted for lemon & mint. Ordered a cheese garlic pizza bread & chips to share,... More

Breakfast is served daily at our bustling Bolton restaurant on the Middlebrook Retail Park just a stones throw from the Reebok Stadium. Pop in between 8am and noon for a traditional fry up or fluffy pancake stack. From noon stop by for one of our much-loved classics including piping hot bowls of pasta, classic crispy pizzas, mouth-watering grills and treats that are guaranteed to make you go "mmm!".
