Found just down the road from the Grand Theatre in central Lancaster, Bella Italia is an ideal pre-show restaurant. Offering superb value set menus as well as an a la carte menu full of classic Italian fare, Bella Italia attracts a varied clientele, from theatre goers to locals, families to couple. Enjoy dishes such as the antipasti mixed platter featuring Italian smoked ham, salami, tomato and basil bruschetta, buffalo mozzarella and mixed olives - perfect for sharing. Main course include spicy chicken and smoked mozzarella pizza and chargrilled salmon fillet with tomato salsa and green beans. The wine list is a celebration of Italian grapes and the beers are imported direct from Italy.
