The food was excellent but the service was poor no interaction from the staff, she just took the order and took my money and that was it.

Every time we come here we are enjoying great food and service. I can say it is our favorite place in Southend. Staff is friendly and service is great. Today our waiter Amrin made our evening a great experience.

I avoid here as I always seem to be disappointed. My 4yr old niece asked to go here. The service was good and friendly I can't fault it and the food is reasonable. The food, 2 out of 3 dishes came up luke warm and had to be returned for heating up and the spinach & ricotta cannelloni was ok... More

When I ate recently at Bella Italia with a group of friend, I'd never seen such a massive pizza! Both the food (especially wonderful deserts!) and service were excellent and I would highly recommend a visit.

We were in Southend on a shopping trip & after completing this exercise. we decided to have some Italian cuisine so we continued up the precinct to its junction with London Road & found this restaurant.

The food was excellent and the service was fantastic. We were served by a young waitress who went out of her way to make our party of 6 feel we were special. Because of her excellent service we will go there again and tell our family and friends to go there..

Visited before a cinema booking and had 2 and half hours to kill, there was me thinking we would just be standing around before the showing as it wouldn't take that long in a restaurant how wrong was I! After being told it's better to book we were taken to a little table in the main part of the restaurant... More

Bella Italia hits the Essex coast with its Southend on Sea restaurant, found in the very centre of the town just opposite the Southend Victoria train station. Locals and visitors to this popular British seaside resort are invited to enjoy classic Italian food at good value prices at Bella Italia. There are a wide range of pizzas to choose from such as the Quattro Stagioni with pepperoni, ham, roasted mushrooms and artichokes and the pasta dishes features options like the spaghetti carbonara with pancetta, egg and pecorino cheese or the beef and pork meatballs in a rich tomato sauce served on a bed of spaghetti. Don't forget to save room for dessert; chocolate lovers will adore The Godfather (nutty chocolate fudge brownies, vanilla and toffee ice cream, chocolate sauce and fresh cream).
