We had pizza and arancini balls here for dinner and the pizza was beautiful! We had a pork belly pizza, the flavours and crust were amazing! Arancini balls had a nice sauce and a yummy filling. Waitress was super friendly and had some great suggestions. Staff here are a real commodity.

This used to be our favourite so can only assume new chef or owners! Wait on drinks. Ordered spaghetti, got fettuccine. Husband ordered medium steak, got well done. Noted to waitress, offered discount next time. We live here, won't be back! Disappointing experience!

After a simple entre of garlic bread, I had the Barramundi while my wife had the Duck Rissoto. Both were of a high standard. A glass... More

My boyfriend and I walked through Palm Cove for an early dinner and thought Bella Baci's menu looked appetizing. We thought the prices were a bit steep but hey it might be amazing. We ordered buscetta which was less than basic and lacked flavor. For the main we has duck risotto $36 with a side of asparagus $8. The asparagus... More

This was our last stop on our 'restaurantt saunter' (like a pub crawl only restaurant/cafe crawl instead) Our group of 4 enjoyed dessert, port and liquer coffee. 2 of us could not go past the house made waffles - thick, but light The house made tiramisu didn't disappoint either.

We both had a Pizza and although they weren't wood fire, they were ok. My problem with it is that the pricing of over $20 is not acceptable unless it was wood fire. A $13 price tag would of been what would be closer to the mark. Service was pretty good.
