Description: Open from breakfast through to lunch and dinner, Bella Italia is always a popular choice in Manchester's Piccadilly. Right in the heart of the city centre, Bella Italia is a big hit with visitors to the city as well as hungry locals. Well priced Italian eats are what you'll find here, all served in the attractive rustic style dining room. Tuck into delicious breakfasts such as the Inglese (an English fry up with a few Italian touches) or coffee and pastries, or why not try the very well priced set lunch menu. The a la carte offers plenty of choice from pizzas to pastas and grilled meats and fish to salads and burgers and tasty starters. Desserts always go down a treat, especially the house dessert 'The Godfather', a mouthwatering mix of chocolate brownie, chocolate sauce, toffee, vanilla ice cream and fresh cream.

“Must depend on the time of day....”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Have been here a few times and the service is usually great - especially for children. This particular time we were waiting for ages to order, let alone waiting for the food. 2 and 4 year olds don't like waiting long for food! I also had to ask for the colouring book for the children as they were getting restless. Food was basic but I usually go there as its easy with children...

“Great food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Dined here with a friend prior to going to a concert. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Staff were lovely, friendly and attentive without being a nuisance. Would definitely dine here again. Only thing I found a little strange is the restaurant weren't able to order us a taxi.

“Good value for money...safe option especially for a tourist”
Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

The bella italia is not the kind of the restaurant that will remain in ur memory until ur very last day...neitger the food comes from a top gastronomy recipy or materials...it is very decent though...tge money u re gonna pay are slightly more than those u would need to pay to a burger king but the quality u get is by far better.also they offer economic menus in which u can get two courses (starter and main)for almost 8pounds.i was not amazed but at the same time I had a decent to good plate...enjoyed my time there and after all I thought tgat it was a good deal...definatelt would go back....

“Good Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Bella Italia is located in city centre at picadilly gardens and therefore has a very good location if you want to have lunch after a day of shopping. We had a starter plate and shared a pizza. The food was alright, so was the service. It was not the best italian food I had, but it was pretty good for the price. We also could make use of student discound, which was pretty nice.
