We had a very pleasant evening at the Bella Vista, food good, service good, but..................... I do not like to be asked continuously 'is everything alright with your meal?' We were asked this after each course (three) usually when we were all eating so unable to reply! I do think most people will complain if a meal isn't 'right' and express 'Thank you' and leave a tip (we did) if the food and service is good.
I am not blaming the young and efficient staff who looked after us but believe this to be a training flaw as it seems to be happening in other 'new' restaurants we have visited. It isn't necessary and I think embarrassing for both staff and customers alike.

Had a few lunches at this place, every one a good un. Some of the best pizzas I've had outside of Italy. Service has been variable, mostly due to inexperience staff.

Came here for the first time pre-visit to the cinema with friends and found the the food to be good with the service front of house to be slow and ineffective. Had to ask and chase staff to order drinks, food and pay the bill (a 40min process to order and receive an single course of food as it was not busy) . Still can't work out why they seem to scatter all their customers all over the restaurant so its difficult to maintain a coherent quality service.
Overall its a shame that the service let the food down, good views of the pier and the sea, décor is modern but cold will be giving it a second chance as long as I don't have to be somewhere afterwards.
