This place always seems to have lots of people enjoying good food and my most recent visit was no different. When you enter the restaurant there... More

Went for the Sunday Lunch deal, and it was excellent value for money, great choices and the food was really good, hot and delicious. Great service and staff, we really enjoyed the whole visit, so much so going again this Sunday.

This was my first visit as part of a 70th birthday celebration. First impressions made me want to leave and that was the staff presentation. What should have been crisp white shirts looked dirty and grey. I presented the staff with a celebration cake and was told we couldn't eat it there - never in my 42 years have I... More

Went with family for early evening meal. Our visitors were especially delighted with the standard of the food. Service was excellent. The restaurant was full, so a little noisy as there were lots of youngsters. Will be visiting more often in the future!

As locals we have always felt privileged to have a superb Italian restaurant on our doorstep, never had a bad meal also the staff are attentive & very professional. The 2 course Sunday lunch for £10.95 is a bargain and we have had many a family gathering taking advantage of this value for money offering.

The restaurant was full on a Monday evening (which has to be a good sign) and we had to wait five minutes for a table, we had booked, but as most people say "I don't mind waiting if the food is good", the food was very good and the service was great! This was our first visit but definitely will... More

Visited La Bella Vita with family for my granddaughter' birthday and couldn't have asked for a better meal. The service was excellent, polite and attentive and the food was fantastic, freshly made in the open kitchen. Definitely will call again.
