Norwich's Red Lion Street is home to Bella Italia, one of the well loved chain of Italian restaurants with outlets all over the UK. Situated in a convenient city centre location, close to the Vue cinema complex and the Norwich Castle Mall, Bella Italia on Red Lion Street is a great place for a meal. The pretty terrace to the front of the restaurant is perfect during the summertime for dining and people watching at the same time. As for the menu, expect the usual Bella Italia classics from pizza to pasta and grills to salads. The set menus is always a steal and the kiddies menu offers plenty of choice for the little ones. The wine list stays faithful to Italy and features a good selection of reds, whites and rosés and Peroni and Moretti take care of the beers.
