Down a small arcade near the lake. The pizzas are fantastic, plenty of choice with heaps of topping and a good crust.

We have had takeaway meals from Bella Bellissimos' many times and the pizzas are always delicious. The service is quick as I always pre-order and then pick up. I hope to have the time to go the Bella Bellissimo sit and have dinner one day soon.

Unfortunately I did not have a pleasant eat at this restaurant. I ordered the traditional Italian meatballs with spaghetti and my mother in law ordered the same with fettuccini however the meatballs were extremely fatty and salty, to the point where it was basically inedible. I had a lot of sauce on my plate which was tasteless and the had... More

Have been here at least 6 times in the last 12 months. Inconsistent in service and food. Crowded. Uncomfortable chairs. Very hot in summer...west facing, glare from sun. No aircon. Cool in winter. On a good night, you can get a great meal. However, on one evening...Caesar Salad-limp lettuce, bacon just cooked causing very runny dressing, then pizza base poor... More

Nice restaurant with a good selection of Italian food, including pizzas. You can also get takeaway pizzas and wander over the street to enjoy them by the lake.

We dined here over the Oz Day long weekend - 10 of us including two elderly (87 and 97 years) and two children. Everything was wonderful from the reservation call - polite and informative. Ramp access was available and some extra room given around our table for our needs. The waiter was very friendly and fun. Our food was delicious.... More

This is the 2nd time I've frequented this restaurant and i must say this time round was a more pleasant experience. The food was great although took a while to come out but all in all the taste was sensational and very reasonable in price too. Will be back again

Friendly service and fine food. Cannot fault bruschetta, risotto and the crab tortellini was a taste sensation. Topped it off with cannoli for dessert. Also not many places that allow byo anymore. Top spot to have a good laugh and catch up with friends at a reasonable price.

Thank Kerandco
