We were extremely impressed with our dinner at Bella Vita & it was well worth the journey. The restaurant was absolutely buzzing even on this wet mid week visit. We were warmly welcomed & the Italian staff were fun & friendly throughout the night. The menu is lengthy & we had food from across the board. Pizzas were superb, meat... More

We had booked a table for 8pm but nobody seemed to really know anything about it and we were finally seated around 8.20. The menu choice isn't vast but there is something for everyone and the prices are reasonable. Service was good once... More

Returned here yet again because the food is so good. Had the duck again - very very good. I think they should include the veg and extras because it does become a bit pricy, but it's good for a special treat every now and again.

We should really give this place 5 stars, as we have eaten here many times and the food has always been great and the service friendly and first class. However the surly attitude of one member of staff could have spoiled our evening. Thankfully the food and the rest of the staff made up for it. Both the ladies in... More
