We arrived after 6 p.m with no booking and asked for a table for 8. This was no problem they said, seating us immediately. Paper and crayons arrived for the children along with menus. The food as usual was of a high standard, with very attentive staff. We had an amazing evening and we could fault nothing. Thank you

We booked a table for Saturday night and am pleased that we did as it was quite busy. We were shown to our table promptly and did not feel rushed with the service at all during the evening. The food was very nice and was hot and good sized portions. Would definitely come again for a meal.

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.

Description
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).
