“Fantastic every time”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Each time I travel from Clare to a Kerry to visit my friend, we eat in Bella Bia. Absolutely delicious, every time. Great staff and Fantastic value.. But be warned you should book in advance as it is very busy, always a great sign for a restaurant.

“ Meat is gorgeous”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Ordered lamb rack, one of the best in my life. The gravy was smooth and tasty. My husband ordered steak and it was better than many he's had in Brazil or Argentina, it was juicy and tender. The place was full, but the waitress did their best. It's worth waiting. You won't regret You'd better make a reservation.

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Coming from New York City, I never expected to get outstanding Italian food in Ireland. I was pleasantly surprised, not only with the food but with the service. It's a lively restaurant, the kind you can hang out all night in. The owner's come around and talk to all the customers and we found out that they come to the states often. We had a grand time there and would recommend it to anyone staying in the Tralee area. We will certainly be going back!

“Always Reliable”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Bella Bia consistently delivers. The prices are very reasonable, the menu offers lots of choice, the food is good, the service is good and there's always a great buzz in the restaurant. The mussels starter was excellent and the portion size was very generous. It was considerably better than a similar dish in other considerably more expensive restaurants in Tralee. The main course of chicken in a mushroom sauce was also very nice but it would be even nicer if the chicken was cooked and served on the bone. Lemon meringue pie for dessert was great. All in all I'd be very happy to recommend the restaurant.
