Being local to me, I have watched Bella Vita progress and evolve since it first opened a number of years ago. Their success is well earned and I simply love visiting, which tends to be quite often!!

Their food, service and atmosphere never disappoints and they will do whatever they can to accommodate, even squeeze a family in on a Saturday night (but never made to feel rushed!). We have celebrated large birthdays, had small family dinners and even spent our date night here; it really is so versatile. And on top of that, if you let the guys know about any dietary requirements, they are more than happy to arrange something for you; including vegan dishes.

If you are in search of fine dining; look elsewhere. That is not what traditional Italian restaurants are about anyway. Just go and enjoy the buzz of Bella Vita!!

PS: their wine selection is fab too!

Great atmosphere in a typical family run Italian bistro. Menu choice is very good and well prepared and presented. Limited parking but overall a reasonably priced venue for a good Italian style meal.

i have visited Bella vita a number of times, the food is always spectacular, atm they have a 2 course lunch menu for under £10 and the food is faultless and an excellent portion size! i personally know a few of the chefs and they all take pride in their work and enjoy making tasty food for all to enjoy, and will cater to your needs as much as possible, today i visited with my mum and sister, from the get go my mum was worried as she had trouble chewing food, and isnt keen on chips/rice chunky chicken ect.... she loves fish so asked for the fish goujons but with no chips and if possible vegetables and without hesitating the waiter said this wasn't a problem, the waiting staff are very friendly and always made sure the drinks were flowing.

I Love this little Italian place .... authentic Italian waiters, authentic Italian food served perfectly and a lovely atmosphere! what more can you ask for!

i will be back may times, if you haven't already its defo worth a visit, you would leave disappointd!
