Always a great choice for hungry lunchtime shoppers, Bella Italia's tried and tasted Italian menu offers something for everyone, Whether it's a tasty Italian pizza you want or a delicious plate of pasta such as the spaghetti with prawns in a spicy tomato sauce, you are sure to enjoy the flavourful food served at Bella Italia in Bristol's Cabot Circus. Don't forget to check out the superb dessert menu either, where the likes of tiramisu and banoffee pie will have your tastebuds tingling.

“Good meal with great service.”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

The restaurant is in a good location in the shopping centre.
The food was very good for a chain and the service was excellent, our waitress was great always checking if we were ok, probably best service we've had in a long time.
We will try the ones in Cardiff our home town and hopefully give a good review.
Thanks Bella Italia and great waitresses.

“Have been here around 3 times in 2 months.”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

Had a meal here with my daughter as she had an in-service day, can pay with Tesco vouchers (not valid on drinks) so works out very good value for money. Came here to celebrate her birthday with 3 friends and then enjoyed a lunch with my Dad after a shopping trip. All three times, service very good, food enjoyable (did have lukewarm chips the first time though). Overall when paying with Tesco Rewards very good value for money.

“No bacon or syrup for breakfast??!!!”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

We were really looking forward to having brunch here after previously viewing the menu. After we sat down and already ordered our drinks, the waitress came over to tell us that there was no bacon. Although disgruntled, we stayed and reevaluated what we would order (which was limited with no bacon!). When our food arrived, one person in our party was given his fruity pancakes with no butter or syrup. He asked for syrup and after five minutes rooting around in the kitchen, the waitress came out to say there was no syrup but presented caramel sauce instead. Understandably, we were quite livid at this stage. He ordered something different instead. Although his meal was waived, we were extremely disappointed with our visit. To offer a breakfast/brunch service without two main ingredients is shocking...especially when someone could have easily got them from the Sainsbury's local two minutes' walk away. We would NOT recommend this for breakfast/brunch ever again.

“A wet January evening”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

We needed to meet someone in an area that we weren't familiar with and our guest recommended that we meet here as it is next to the walk way from the Cabot Circus car park. We found the restaurant easily and were greeted warmly. This was a Monday early evening so was quiet but the service was attentive without being intrusive. We chose from the menu and were all delighted with our choice. I had the lasagne which was delicious, tasted home made and light and fresh. Two of the party chose gelati for pudding and we had chocolate and honeycomb. The chocolate was delicious but the honeycomb was not to our taste. Coffee was served at the end of our meal. We chatted for ages over coffee and no one hovered round us so we felt quite comfortable.

“Really disappointed this time”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Been here so many times this year & have always enjoyed the food but decided to have a burger for a change & the 1st one was burned & the 2nd one was no better, the manager was good enough to not charge up us for the drinks or my wife's meal but all I ate was two lots of chips. He explained that they had a new trainee, my suggestion is get rid of him now before it's too late & you get more bad reviews.
I will be back but will stick to the pizza's as long as the new trainee hasn't been promoted to pizza cooking.
