I have driven past this place a few times and thought it looked really promising. I have now tried it and wouldn't bother again. We went inside looked at the menu and waited about five minutes, there was no one there to greet us and after deciding on what pizzas we wanted had to start looking for someone to serve us. A woman came out and served us but it felt as though we had disturbed her evening. There was a half an hour wait for the pizzas even though there was only one other person to serve who had also come in while we were waiting for someone to serve us. When we collected the pizza the woman had perked up a bit. The pizza was average at best and lacked in flavour and quality. It felt more like a kebab shop pizza than a Italian and I was pretty disappointed with the whole experience.

Been a customer of Bella pizza for many years first as take a way customer but now regularly book a table in their new restaurant. Staff always very friendly. Food is lovely and they now have a specials board which in my option they should extend.

It was a Sunday night and we toured Devon trying to find somewhere that was open, luckily we came across Bella Pizza in Honiton! We were the only ones in there, so exclusive use of the place, although they were busy doing take away orders for delivery. small and modern Italian restaurant with absolutely gorgeous pizzas! even the side salad was fantastic, usually you get lettuce, cucumber and toms if you are lucky, but here it was more like a full blown salad with sweetcorn and peppers, onions (and olives if you like them)! staff were lovely and full of advice about the local area and even recommended the local ice-cream shop! Highly recomended!!!

We thought we would meet some friends and try the lunchtime buffet on a Saturday. We booked a table as thought it would be busy. Our party consisted of four adults, one toddler and a baby so needed space for a pram.

The resturant is very small and felt like the pram was in the way but the table had been set out as requested with a high chair which was good.

The buffet was very limited in selection with one pepperoni and two cheese pizza's. One garlic bread, a few small bowls of salad and two different types of pasta.

The pizza's were nice but soon went and were only replenished with two further cheese only pizza's which was disappointing. One of the pasta dishes was quite tasty but the linguine was bland and tasteless.

The waitress was not overly outgoing and were not offered refills of drinks but did let us have a bowl for our two year old son without us asking. As it turned out there was no charge for his food either which was a pleasant surprise.

There were no drinks menu and this was probably because they don't want you to see the prices which were extremely expensive.

One thing which was an issue was the wasps, when sitting in a restaurant I do not feel I should have to constantly be attacked by them.

Overall it was a cheap buffet and that showed which was a shame as we live locally and would have been a good location to meet people in the future

Visited here on our last trip to Honiton. Service was good, nice clean place, food was ok. Maybe we have been a little spoilt with the excellent local pizza place in Oswaldtwistle.
