My wife and me visited Bella Italia on our latest visit to Manchester. Good pleasant service and nice atmosphere. Food ok but could have been better.

This restaurant is right opposite the Lowry theatre, Salford Quays. We called in ‘on spec’ fairly early on a Saturday teatime and managed to get a table for 4 straight away. I think if we had been 15 minutes later it may have been a...More

Great restaurant with great service. We ate fairly early 6ish and it was very quiet. Food was very good and filling. Would definitely recommend a visit here if in the area.

Staff were very attentive, orders taken and delivered pretty quickly and the food was both well presented and nicely cooked. Lovely experience sitting outdoors in Media City.

Arrived to a fairly empty restaurant. The service was provided by only one server, and another staff member behind the bar. The food was tasty and everyone enjoyed their meal. Although the service was fine, it was slightly on the slow side.

Done the shopping - time for lunch. We thought we'd try the Bella Italia. Should have known better really having seen the "Kids Eat Free" and "2 Kids Courses £5.99" - the result - too many Kids, some well behaved, others not so, with disinterested...More

The stylish Lowry Centre in the heart of Salford Quays in Manchester plays host to Bella Italia, part of the highly popular Italian restaurant chain with outlets throughout the country. Housed in this fabulous waterside development in Manchester, Bella Italia boasts an enviable location within the shopping centre. Diners are invited to a veritable feast of classic Italian food ranging from pizza to pasta and grills to salads. Tuck into a tasty chicken and pancetta salad with red onion, tomatoes, baby gem lettuce and Dolcelatte dressing or why not sample the Penne Marco Polo, a delicious plate of penne pasta topped with sautéed duck in a plum sauce, spring onions and sliced mushrooms. Finish off with one of Bella Italia's divine desserts and wash down with a glass of Italian red or white.
