Located on Piccadilly Gardens this chain Italian restaurant is well located for a quick and reasonably priced Italian meal. Unfortunately my pasta main meal arrived lukewarm and led me to complain. I was promised a fresh meal but when a hotter dish arrived back within 3 minutes I remained unconvinced this wasn't warmed through in spite of assurance it was... More

We ate here for lunch on the Eve before the Manchester Marathon. I had a gorgeous Goats cheese pizza and hubby had a Prawn Pasta Dish. Both were lovely and we couldn't fault them.

Visited for a birthday early evening meal, were seated but not asked if we wanted a drink, had to stop a passing member of staff to ask to be served, no house 'fizz' available which I found surprising in city centre on Thursday evening. Staff declined to offer any reduction on price of Prosseco, we therefore left, walked across the... More

The restaurant is lovely and cosy with a great choice of food. It's right in the centre of town so a perfect place to go before an afternoon of shopping in Manchester. We love the food and drinks, there are always great offers available to make the meal even cheaper and our trip was catered for by the lovely Lukas... More

It wasn't my first time in this bella and I need to say the kitchen actually improved very much. Over last few months there were issues with food I had, but this time my burger was absolutely delicious. We have been served by a tall young man from Czech Republic, who was very attentive and took care of us like... More

Worst breakfast in my live The crossain were burned. The bacon sandwich came after 20 minutes. And we waited till the end for one slice of toast for the breakfast menu. For a fast and delicious breakfast definitely the wrong adress.

Our table was booked for 6.30 and we arrived on time. After being given menus and mentioning that we had a Groupon deal, our menus were quickly taken away and replaced with a new one. We ordered starters, which arrived within 5 minutes or so, but which were very dry and almost inedible. We then sat and waited for our... More

Firstly I accept that going to an Italian style restaurant and ordering a burger was a bit odd, but it was on the Menu and I just decided that was what I wanted, but what a mistake, it was dry and tough with no sauces to in anyway mask the awfulness of it, this was obvious from sight alone, this...

We have eaten at several branches of Bella Italia before and have never had a problem. But we will never return here. We arrived at 11.25am where seated and offered menus. We also ordered drinks. The place was not busy. We ordered 4 meals. Half an hour after ordering they arrived at the table. The omelette was stone cold, the... More

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.
