“Very average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

The food was OK, but it did not really taste (and look) as it should in a good restaurant. Service was quite slow too, probably due to the birthday party on another table. Despite of that, most of the staff is very friendly and chatty. And of course, the location is great.

“Very Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Staff were very attentive, polite and service was very good even though the restaurant was extremely busy with other customers. The food (pizza mozzarella with extra side chips) was enjoyable and had plenty of flavour that was well balanced. Overall very good value for money with a great atmosphere. I didn't have to wait long for my order which showed good management throughout. Well done Bella Italia!

“1st visit and enjoyed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Appreciate this is a chain restaurant but we wanted Italian and it being Saturday were left with usual chains to pick from. I had meatballs to start, a chicken picante pizza and cooky dough dessert, my wife had a lasagne and "the godfather" sundae. We had a Cabernet wine. Have to say We enjoyed our meal and in future would choose here ahead of Ask, Pizza Express and Zizzi our waitress was pleasant and friendly, ensured we were happy with our choices etc. total bill was £52.90 which we felt was good value. Special mention for my dessert, I don't normally bother (preferring a liqueur) but it was well worth it. Sue's dessert was probably too much for one (we were advised this on ordering). Would return.
