“The best place to eat- and not just in Burnley!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

I have been eating at Bellissimo's for a few years now and have never been disappointed. Each time you go, you become more friendly with the staff and find them very easy to talk to as they are all lovely and genuine people with a passion for good quality food.
The menu has a fantastic variety of all things delicious; but for me, the tagliatelle spagna has proven addictive. I no longer live in Burnley, but I shall be home from Leeds this weekend to get my fix! I especially look forward to catching up with Lynn and the rest of the family that own Bellisimo's as they always make me welcome. It's hard not to get caught up in a conversation each time you go.
I feel lucky to have discovered this little gem and more people should try the fresh, healthy food and experience the Bellissimo atmosphere; you will never eat anywhere else.

“Best place to eat, or just for a coffee, in Burnley”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

As stated in the title, this is by far the best place in Burnley for eating or just to have a cup of the best and BEST value coffee in Burnley. A family run business, the owners, family and staff are very attentive to our needs every time we visit, nothing is too much trouble, and we are always made to feel truly welcome. I first visited Bellisimo`s just for a take out Latte, (the usual high street coffee shops) don't come close to taste or value. Since then i have taken my family, and we now eat there at least once a week. Now our extended family and friends are visiting. The food is made fresh, and only the best ingredients are obviously used to produce wonderful food.
I never eat cakes, due to dieting, but the cakes which John makes himself, are worth a pound or two extra weight for me to lose.
If you are from Burnley or just visiting, get yourself onto Parker Lane, and visit, you WILL NOT be disappointed.

“Loads of lovely choices!”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

I have visited a few times now and have found every visit to be very enjoyable. I don't go to Burnley very often but when I do I try to go near lunch time and then I can eat here. I have to have the gluten free options but there is plenty to chose from and everything I have had has been very tasty. It is great to be able to just order something without a big fuss. My friends and family have also enjoyed the non gluten free food, which I have to say some of them aren't always easy to please. 10/10 for everything.

Thank you very much for your comments, we know how important it is to offer the rright food for certain conditons, my husband, the chef is a coeliac and has to adhere to a strict gluten free diet
we find it hard to find gluten free food even in big city centres so he wanted to do this for people such as yourself. I hope you continue to enjoy our food on your visits to burnley.

Hi there, thank you so much for your lovely comments. Our staff member Chloe was bowled over with your baby and loved playing with him. I hope you continue to enjoy our food and just to let you know we are adding new things on to the menu nearer christmas. We did open in the evenings when we first opened but people told us that because they could get our pastas and pizzas during the day, at a lower price, they felt that they had no need to come along in an evening and pay more money, we did try this for four months, we opened from Tuesday eve to Saturday Evening 6pm to 10pm, some evenings we had no one in at all so had to give it up. Again, thanks for your support, hope to see you again soon.
