Loved this restaurant! Was a bit skeptical about Italian in Ireland, but this place is legit. Our server, Molly Malone, was superb. Excellent and modestly priced wine list. And the bolognese was superb. Very nice atmosphere. Will be back.

Both my 83 year old mother and l, had the pleasure of eating in the Belle Bia Restaurant for two nights in a row, over August 2017. As recommendations go, Belle Bia is the best restaurant we have ever visited. The staff were outstanding on so many levels, that it beggars belief. They were very welcoming, humourous and playful. From the moment people arrived, they went out of their way to make everyone feel special and appreciated. The atmosphere was electric and the background music was truly relaxing. As to the food - there was plenty of variety and each dish opened up a myriad of tastes the hit the pallet of even the most discerning customer.

Belle Bia is not a restaurant in the mundane sense of the word. Rather its, a home away from home, where the best food was served. The staff made us feel like family and how we felt, really mattered. A big thank you to everyone, including the manager and owner who always brought a smile and giggle to our table.

Our short break to Tralee has been spectacular and all the more, thanks to the love and passion of everyone in Belle Bia. We are counting the days when we can return and walk through the doors to be greeted by huge smiles and playful banter. Few will ever attain to the standards of this restarurant but for those who dare, Belle Bia is the gem of Tralee. To Tourists and locals alike, please call in. Be yourself, crack some jokes and let the atmosphere take over - you won't be disappointed !! No holiday will be complete without a visit to this Restaurant !!

This was quite a loud and busy restaurant on a Wednesday so the service was a bit slow. The mushrooms starter and smoked salmon starter was delicious and there was a good selection of wine. However, my main course - pizza - was quite salty and I had to leave some of it

No problem finding us a table despite being quite busy. Beautiful basket of herbed bread followed by 2 starters and mains as part of the early bird and a baby bowl.
Excellent service and gorgeous food. Pictured is the remains of my risotto. Ill say no more

Four of us visited to have great Italian food served with a friendly Kerry attitude and relaxedness.
