Description: Perched along the pretty riverside in Norwich city centre, Bella Italia is a great place to enjoy a bite to eat, Italian style. Just a few streets away from Norwich train station, this waterside branch of Bella Italia, one of three in Norwich, offers a relaxed, family style ambience. Typical rustic Italian interiors with tiled flooring and walls adorned with poster prints of all sizes create just the right atmosphere for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The a la carte menu is a veritable feast of classic Italian dishes, such as the Polpette Americano (meatballs in a rich tomato sauce atop a bed of steaming spaghetti) or the succulent sirloin steak fillet served with garlic mushrooms, fries and a rocket salad. Those with a sweet tooth are in for a treat with the dessert list with the likes of tiramisu and mascarpone cheesecake on offer.

“Great food, reasonable price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

This was a busy restaurant! We managed to get a table and were bought our food in reasonable time considering how many were there.
The wait staff were very helpful and polite.
The food was delicious and we paid reasonably for it.
It is obviously popular as there were queues of people the whole time we were there!

“Do not trust offers!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

We bowled in the complex this weekend, my son wanted to eat at Nando's , but I had a 30% off our meal voucher from the Internet and as there was 7 of us I asked would they accept it, they said yes, but after ordering drinks and then to order food, then our waitress said the manger would not accept the voucher now, no apology and the last £71 I will spend in there!

“Unexpected date night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

We hadn't booked so just walked in and hoped we could get a table. The hostess explained that they were a chef down and there would be a 40 minute wait, so we got a drink at the bar and were brought some menus. This turned out to only be 20 mins at which point we were ready to order as soon as we were seated. Didn't have a couple of things on the menu, but not really a problem. Food came out promptly and was really nice. Waiter was also excellent. Will be going back.

“Very pleasant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

First time to this restaurant and pleasantly surprised.The atmosphere was lively and the waitress cheerful, well informed and considerate...it was my daughter's birthday and she was presented with a mocktail...a nice touch.
Food was good value and well presented.
Overall a very positive experience for one who is generally unimpressed by chain restaurants.
