Description: Bella Italia in Inverness boasts a prime city centre location close to the riverside and just moments away from Inverness Castle. The dining room is an inviting space decked out in Bella Italia's signature rustic style. Warm tones, tiled flooring and walls adorned with huge poster prints create a welcoming ambience. As for the food, the a la carte menu is wide and varied featuring a good selection of pizzas, pasta and grilled meat and fish. There is also a superb set menu where you could be tucking into an Italian salad for starters followed by crispy pancetta and mushroom penne pasta with an Italian wine sauce and rounded off with cream filled profiteroles with a hot chocolate sauce.

“GREAT IMPROVEMENT”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

This was our first visit since the restaurant and menu had been revamped and it has a much better layout now.
HOT FOOD, HOT PLATES. This is a continual moan of mine but the food was hot and well cooked.
AGA the waitress was cheerful girl who was very busy and could have done with more help!! There was another member of staff there who I felt could have been more help so there was a slight delay on the drinks bur the food came quickly.
Well worth a visit.

“Excellent food and great service!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We've been to this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. The service is second to none, particularly by the Italian staff. The menu is extensive with plenty of variety. The staff are very helpful if you require an alteration to something you'd like to order; they also manage to make you feel as though you are the only customer. If you haven't been, I'd recommend a visit; it's sure to be enjoyed.

“Great lunch time stop”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

I have been in twice since they have reopening and it's great. Quick service for the lunch hour break if needed.Two menu's to select from the lunch menu has a 2 ot 3 course at set price menu. The food is tasty, fresh, and piping hot. The services is friendly, quick and helpful. The lay out is well spaced out so that you can have a conversation without everyone else hearing it. For a chain they have made it local and friendly and welcoming. Looking forward to going back.

“"Fantastic food and service"”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Evening meal out with family. Staff were friendly and our waitress was very polite. Excellent menu to choose from and the food was quick in arriving on the table. Very reasonably priced and fantastic food certainly would recommend eating here again. One thing I would recommend though is if you are visiting Inverness at the end of September is to book a table as it was extremely busy and queuing outside the door to get in. This was because it was the weekend of the Baxters Loch Ness Marathon on the Sunday which takes place every year.
