Yummy dinner & ambience. Served by a lovely waitress named Emily. She was lovely, welcoming and warm. We stayed for quite a while since the atmosphere was lovely and relaxed and didn't feel rushed to leave at all. She was very patient (we took our time deciding what to eat) and was confident making recommendations on menu and drinks when... More

We booked, but had to wait for a table anyway because it was so crowded. After being crammed next to some other couples we had to wait ages to order, despite having had plenty of time to peruse the menu already. When our food arrived it was wrong. We asked for water with the food that only arrived when we... More

We recently went out for a meal with my mum and my 2 year-old. Like most toddlers, he didn't want to wait for his food or sit still, but our waitress, Andrea was amazingly helpful and friendly. We have been to this restaurant many times and we always find that the waiting staff are amazing with children e.g. try to... More

Situated by the riverside at Reading's Oracle shopping centre, Bella Italia is a popular destination for Italian dining. The restaurant itself is an attractive space, decked out in a rustic Italian style with tiled flooring, warm tones and bistro style seating. There is a magnificent terrace to the front of the restaurant which is always busy during the summer months. The menu comprises of all the classic Italian dishes from tasty mixed antipasti platters heaped with smoked ham, salami, bruschetta, mozzarella and olives to pizza topped with Italian cured ham and rocket. Desserts such as the mascarpone cheesecake with red berry compote keep all those with a sweet tooth contented.
