Visited on Sunday 6th. With 3 grandchildren in group. Took almost an hour for starter to come. Due to lack of staff took ages for food. Got dessert 2 hrs after arriving. Need more staff as the 3 serving staff were rushing around.

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.
