I came here with my partner & the food was absolutely lovely, was totally worth the money. The man that served us was so lovely, if you are ever in Edinburgh go to this place! You won't regret it.

We came here late afternoon so it was busy but we were seated quickly and a waitress (Lisa) came immediately to speak to us. We ordered drinks and main courses and the drinks came almost immediately. The food (pizza, pasta and a burger) were fantastic...very tasty and cooked perfectly...our server Lisa was great and so helpful too...a credit to the company. Next visit to Edinburgh..we will visit Bella Italia again

Great wine, delicious food, warm and cosy place, friendly staff - that's how i would describe this restaurant..
We went in pretty late for dinner, and there were several items which were not available.. Not sure if it's because of our timings, or that's how usually it is.. The chef was sweet enough to prepare customized dishes for us..
Overall - good experience.. Wouldn't mind going back.. :)

This restaurant does everything right. The staff is trained well and has no problem with special requests.

Service was excellent and not rushed. The food was outstanding and the Home Made Ice Cream even better then that.

A must if you want an Italian Neighborhood Restaurant.

We stumbled upon Bella Italia after emerging from the underground ghost tour! It was 10:30pm and we were starving and this seemed to be the closest place on the Royal Mile that was still open! It fit all of our criteria so in we went for it. We had not realized that this was a chain, so the food is that more impressive. I can't say that I've dined at many chains and had really delicious food.
The menu was pretty extensive, from numerous pasta bowls to the selection of pizza, there was something for everyone and the prices were pretty reasonable, so that was another selling point. Our waiter was really nice, and made great recommendations, albeit the service was a tad slow.
We started off with the Mozzarella Pomodoro which came out crispy and fluffy. I had the Agnello Tagliatelle, which was a heaping bowl of pasta and they didn't go light on the lamb either, the flavors were great, a very rich dish. I was starving and by the end of the meal, it didn't even look like I made a dent in the plate at all! My husband had the Carne Mista pizza and raved about it being one of the better pizzas he's had in a while.
The restaurant was very intimate at that time of night and the people watching was fantastic, it really added some interesting entertainment for the night. There was a taxi stand across the street so it was very easy to get back to our hotel afterwards. We were pleasantly surprised with our random pick, we were weary that it would be a tourist trap, it probably was, but we really had a great time, it was well past midnight when we left and never once felt rushed despite the hour of the night.
