“Good Italian Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

I've enjoyed Bella Italia the times I've been there. The menu pricing is confusing in some ways (how is a pasta dish wish chicken cheaper than one with lobster and crab?), but all in all, it's a good place and makes for a filling meal.

Staff is also pretty used to non-locals - even if the place fills with locals - so you can expect service a bit above what one typically finds in Europe.

“Bella Italia A Disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2010

I would seriously question a guidebook description of Bella Italia as the best Italian food in Svendborg. We went there with high hopes, but the very slow service immediately put a damper on the evening. We had to ask for menus, ask to order, and ask for the check, with long waits in between each event. I ordered the seafood risotto, which turned out to be rice, not true risotto, although in all fairness, it was tasty. The real imbroglio came at the end of this long evening when we assembled a crowd of two waitresses and the owner, all trying in vain to run our credit card, which does not have a PIN. As we learned, most Danish-issued credit cards come with a mandatory PIN. Ours does not, and nobody on the restaurant staff knew how to run a card without a PIN--inexcusable, since EVERY other shop, restaurant, and hotel we encountered in a 10-day Danish trip somehow knew how to configure their credit card machine to accept this situation. Bella Italia was quite crowded on this Saturday night, but i wish we had gone elsewhere.
