Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We really look forward to a meal at Bella Italia (make sure you book). A perfectly formed small restaurant where the food is wonderful, service friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. Covid precautions have been taken seriously but sympathetically implemented. Highlights for us? The ‘special’ pizza bread to start followed by the seafood spaghetti. Children are made most welcome and child-sized portions are available. We’ll be back soon!

We spend a lot of time in Filey whenever we can, coming for the day or staying in 5leys accommodation when we can. The welcome, food and atmosphere are always wonderful, we would love to have such a restaurant back home. Being able to take our children for an early tea, confident that they'll be welcome, is a massive bonus, they never leave hungry. The menu doesn't disappoint, something for everyone and dishes that you don't tend to get in your standard Italian. This place is old fashioned in all the best ways, we wouldn't have it any other way.

We arrived in Filey on Monday and visited the restaurant, a table was unavailable as they were full but we were told they could fit us in later, which they did. I had seafood and pasta and my wife had Cannelloni and both were delicious, the wine was also excellent, a lovely bottle of Merlot! The service from all the staff was fantastic, an authentic Italian experience. Great family business. It was so good we’ve been back tonight and had another excellent meal! All you have to do is look round In the restaurant and you can see they’ve got a great atmosphere and that special family touch. We will be visiting again, and soon! Excellent restaurant! We were told they’ve been there 30 years and in such a small place like Filey, which we love by the way, especially in these time that is a great thing, excellent to see a family restaurant doing so well.

We love this restaurant and visit when we generally have guests to stay, however during the meal incentive in August we have visited twice. Great service and pizzas and pasta dishes are good. My husband’s steak however on our first visit wasn’t great it was quite tough for a sirloin and relatively expensive. What we think let’s this restaurant down compared to Its competitor San Marco’s is the choice of starters. The starters are very dated and haven’t changed in all the years we have been visiting. No spare ribs either on the starters or main course menu. Don’t let this put you off visiting as it’s a lovely old fashioned restaurant with good service but perhaps we have overdone our visits this year.

We ate here on a Thursday at 1730 opening time with our three children knowing the table would be needed again at 1915. COVID-19 guidance was taken seriously which is good to see. Between the five of us we had two pizzas, a calzone and cannelloni. All were nice enough with the chefs special pizza being the best of our meals. Service was slow which is unusual at opening time so even though we didn't have starters we didn't have time for a desert before the table was needed again which was a shame. Was nice to see the restaurant doing well and full on a Thursday with a roaring takeaway trade.

It’s always difficult to get a table here (good sign), but each time I book, they manage to squeeze us in, basically nothing is too much trouble for this friendly family run restaurant. Our latest visit was during the government promotion of £10 off each meal.It was so good to see so many people taking advantage of this, so as to get restaurants up and running again. The food was stunning as usual. The stilton and fresh chilli garlic bread is a must, also the filet steak stuffed with parsley, garlic and chilli with a most wonderful tomato sauce. The wines were good as well, nice and cold and served correctly. We can’t wait to return again to sample your exquisite fayre!

It'advisable to book in advance here as often it is fully booked. The reasons are simple, it's not very large, but it is very good. It's not part of a chain, but family owned and run by the same people (who hail from Calabria) for over 20 years. It's the usual Italian menu, but everything seemed to taste that bit better. After a shared Bruschetta, Risotto Terra Mare was delicious and excellent value at £9-95. My wife opted for a special, Scampi alla Grande at £18-95 and was not disappointed. We finished with a shared Tiramisu, one of the best. All the desserts looked "to die for" A lovely meal and friendly atmosphere.

Arrived at this restaurant in hope of getting a table as it was fully booked. They told us they had a table as some one did not turn up. So excited after reading the reviews Took our table ordered drinks and a starter. The garlic bread with tomato on was beautiful. Ordered our main lasagne main and tagliatelle the food was cooked fresh and pipping hot. The main dishes to me and this is my own opinion lacked the herb and tomato flavours I was expecting. I'm no Italian chef so can't say it's wrong I guess I just expected more vava voom with a kick of garlic onion tomato and Italian herbs. The staff were amazing service was amazing prices great, presentation spot on can't fault the place its just lacked what I guess we were expecting. Perhaps what we ordered was the wrong food for us. I only ever give my honest opinion and never offer bad feed back unless it needs it. This restaurant was great just not for us sorry

Arrived on time and seated immediately. However it was a quarter of an hour before a member of staff noticed we may want to order. People arrived after us and were able order straightaway. We assumed that regular customers received priority treatment OR they were just not a very well organised restaurant . The food was acceptable but not memorable. Think we will stick with San Marco when we fancy Italian food in future.

From the moment we walked into the restaurant to enquire about a table, the proprietor was very rude. Once our food had arrived we found two of the dishes were lovely but the third was bitter and burnt. When we mentioned this to the proprietor, she was very blunt and said she did not know why, as it was one of their popular dishes.

My wife and I were staying in Filey after moving away. During our stay we had booked a table here, like we had done so many time when we lived in Filey. On arrival we were greeted warmly and shown to our table, I had a starter of the Anti Pasto, then we both had pasta dishes and desserts with coffee and after dinner drinks and wine as well. We were never hurried or pushed so the table could be re-used, as this is not their way, the service was excellent and we had a most enjoyable dinner. We are looking forward to going back and enjoying many more such dinners and evenings. I would always advise booking to avoid any kind of disappointment as at least 4 walk in parties were declined before we received my starter.

This Restaurant is unbelievably popular and anyone wishing to eat at the restaurant needs to book in advance. On arrival we were greeted to a lovely welcome in an authentic setting with no pretence. This restaurant is owned and run by an Italian family and you can feel passion for good food in a relaxed atmosphere. My wife and I had the Tomato/Garlic Bread and Antipasto to start followed by seafood spaghetti and chefs special pizza. I can honestly say that the food was delicious and full authentic Italia flavour. Without doubt we will return when staying in the area again. Highly recommend

We enjoyed two visits to Bella Italia while staying in the Filey area this week. Both were very enjoyable, the restaurant enjoys a good mix of local and tourist trade and serves honest and down to earth Italian food, from a simple straightforward number of menu choices, I had the Bella Italia Pizza and it was packed with flavours, the service was good and the place was buzzing from the moment it opened. I strongly urge you to try it and to make sure you book in advance or risk missing out, oh and the all important covid guidelines? All followed and in place. We will return.

As close to real Italian cuisine as I think you can get, I have eaten in Italy many times and always been impressed with the quality, freshness and attention to detail that the Italians apply to their food. This place in Filey does the same. Everything from a simple bruschetta to a fillet steak is prepared and presented beautifully. The restaurant is not pretentious and the staff are friendly and helpful. Uncomplicated menu. Run by a husband and wife team, this place hasn’t survived for 30+ years by getting things wrong - you won’t be disappointed.

Monday night booking, two other tables booked in and what a super atmosphere. Good selection of wines, beautiful menu freshly made in the kitchen you can see working from the restaurant. Beautiful food, deserts and coffees.
