We came across this while having a stroll in the high street. Besides, it's only 5 minutes walk to Radisson where we were staying. I had the traditional thin crust pepperoni pizza and my partner chose the a pasta with seafood, which she said was ok. Bella won't tear your pocket apart and leaves you feeling fed.

I had Spaghetti Gamberi (king prawns and chilli) which was nicely hot but not over spicy and very fresh tasting. My colleague's Tag Pomodero equally good. We left nothing! Lovely glass of Merlot served at exactly the right temperature to accompany. Very good value and relaxed ambience.

I have a garlic intolerance and at Bella Pasta I had one of the nicest meals I have ever had. They actually prepared a special pasta dish with ricotta cheese, tomato, cannaloni and spinich topped with parmasan cheese. The waiter was extremely professional and the service was excellent.

It was a rare opportunity to grab something to eat before a show on a Saturday night without the kids. Based upon our experience at the Brighton Bella Italia we dropped into the Birmingham restaurant. It was late pm / early evening and the place was packed so it was no surprise that we had to wait 20/30 mins for a table. However, the staff were clearly working hard to turn tables around as efficiently as they could so we had no complaints, being seated within the timescales set out to us.
The menu is pretty much as you expect and this is a chain and so your expectations on food / quality / service etc. are set accordingly. We went with pizzas and had no complaints. They were served hot, well prepared and were tasty. The service & welcome was very warm. The price is on the higher than average side and I am sure if you had time to look around you could probably find something a little better / more bespoke given the choice available in Birmingham nowadays but for most you would need to book in advance. But if you are looking for a safe bet at a reasonable price then Bella Italia fits the bill. From our recent experience they compare favourably with their peers such as Café Rouge or ASK where our experience has not been great.
All in all we left very satisfied and set for our evening out.
