My girlfriend and I visited Bella Italia for our anniversary. The restaurant looks lovely and has a really great atmosphere. Staff were very accommodating. The Brie for starters is exceptional. Both the pasta and pizza dishes were 10/10. Couldn't fault a thing about this restaurant. We have been before and will return.

This place is just so good. You can taste the originality in the food, I've been there a few times now, and I would highly recommend the spaghetti bolognese. It is so simple, yet delicious. The staff, while attentive, do not come over every few minutes asking how everything is, which personally I like because I enjoyed my meal thoroughly... More

Food is excellent, one of the best Italians I've been to in a long time, food is a little pricy but is worth it! Staff are also very friendly

Description
Food in an Italian Restaurant starts with family and ours is no exception. With over 26 successful years as a brother and sister run business, we have the pleasure of working with family everyday. From behind the scenes to front of house family is involved in every aspect of our business. With dishes made to our own Family recipes, we believe simplicity allows quality ingredients to speak for themselves. We attribute the strength of our ‘Bella Italia’ recipe to unfailing family and loyal customer support over the years.
