Bella Bellissimo has a great varied menu. Steaks, PIzzas, Pastas, Fish, Salads its all there. Annie and I went again on Saturday night and I had a pizza. They really know how to make a Pizza. Frank - the proprietor now knows us by name and always greets us enthusiastically. Service is prompt and the pricing very reasonable. They recently... More

We shared a pizza that was wow, and a fritto Misto, with local fresh seafood , and that was enough for us to... More

This restaurant is busy every night so I recommend booking before you go! I went in a group of 8. The food was all average, nice but not exceptional (although the squid was delicious) there was a young boy working at the time out the front that done an amazing job and everyone loved him

We had dinner, Spaghetti Calamari and Putanesca, followed by honey comb Afogato, and Panacotta just delicious and the prices are reasonable. Log gas fire made it cosy over looking the water ways. Highly recommend.

This was our visit dine in visit as we normally order take away pizzas. As always food was very enjoyable and ingredients tasted fresh. The comprehensive menu is complimented by the friendly and welcoming staff's recommendations. Window seats provide a relaxing view of the lake and tourists wandering by.

Because it was a very cold night the temp. inside the restaurant was maybe a bit cool (large windows.) We will be back for sure and hopefully the weather will be a... More

We have had a difficult time finding quality gluten free food in Forster and Bella Bellissimo was such a lovely find. The pasta sauces can all be made with rice and my chilli, garlic and prawn risotto was herby, crispy and to die for! My children chose pizzas (GF base available), but they were really disappointed they didn't choose the... More

You know it's good when all the locals eat there, and in the off season you have to book 3 days in advance to get a table :) The frommagi pizza is our all time favourite but after sampling the risotto special and the salmon meatballs we now don't know what we like the best. I only have one tip... More
