Best non-Kyrgyz food and restaurant in town, family-friendly atmosphere and reliable quality of food and wine - and I come here a lot. Chef Walter is a Bishkek celebrity by now who cares about his guests. I particularly recommend all pasta dishes and the spiced hot bread "ciclista".

We waited ages for our order, and except for the spinach tortellini with smoked ham, everything else was a disaster. The pizza with aubergine comes with aubergine slices 10cm think, unsalted and bland. The grilled salmon is a disgrace, it was so old and dry i wouldn't serve it to a dog.

Nothing italian in the atmosphere, cold and uninviting, with a thick cigarette smoke whose stench i still cannot get rid of.

Ate there a couple of times in my last visit and each time was impressed. They will serve your steak rare (with blood!!) and it was tender. The service is friendly and efficient. Happy to thank the chef as he comes to check things.

We visited Bella Italia, having read the good reviews and loved it. We stayed 4 nights in Bishkek and went there every night! The choice of dishes was very varied, and the quality of all the food we tried was excellent. We particularly recommend the Veal Steaks and the Salmon. Beautifully cooked and very generous portions. The Broccoli Gratinee as a side dish was also delicious. The House wine was very palatable and an excellent price. All in all excellent food and excellent value. Chef Walter came round to greet us and check all was OK every night
We are trying to plan another trip to Bishkek just to visit the Bella Italia
