Whenever I want to treat myself to a meal whilst out in the Arndale shopping centre I go straight to the Bella Italia, I even have my favourite seat. The staff are always friendly and will take a moment for a quick chat. My favourite starter is back on the menu... Tempura Prawns!! Mwah !! These make me soooooo happy... More

The traditional lasagne is the BEST lasagne I've ever had, the service from the team is always great (Edyta, Sonia, Maya, Niki, Asana, and the rest!) and the value for money is fantastic too!

Ate here yesterday with my partner. Food was brill, really good service and atmosphere too. Bill for both of us came to £35 with a starter which we were pleasantly surprised about. Table next to us however we're very rude to the waiting staff, sending back perfectly good meals, complaining about prices. Rude people, staff here dealt with it very... More

This was a good place to eat after a late evening shopping before Christmas. The restaurant was empty and the service prompt. A large draft beer and pasta arrived promptly and just what was needed!

In general, the restaurant is okay, though let down by our experience during visitation in which cups were found to have been dirty, and hair had been found in the food. We were offered replacement fairly quickly for both issues, unfortunately yet again having found another piece of hair in the dish. We were refunded for the particular meal through... More

Visited today for lunch. Food was ok and service was good. The big let down for me was to be told half way through my starter that the main course would be ready in a minute and could they bring it out. I understand that they were busy but this just made me feel rushed and it was on my... More

Visited with my daughter and was left standing for about 10 mins before someone came over to give us a seat (wasn't busy or full) gave us 1 menu to share then left sat another 15 mins before I asked someone to take our order. We ordered the bread starter to share which took about 15 mins to come and... More

Description
The legendary Arndale Centre in central Manchester is home to the excellent Bella Italia, where great Italian food at great prices is served. Set amongst the hundreds of shops in this huge indoor shopping complex, Bella Italia offers rustic yet stylish interiors, with lots of dark polished wood and walls adorned with poster prints. There is a lovely terrace outside the main dining room where diners can enjoy the buzz of the shopping centre. Aside from the a la carte menu Bella Italia offers great value set menus too where you might start with a warming soup of the day with ciabatta followed by a Sorrentina Fusilli (fusilli pasta with tomato, mozzarella and basil sauce). Finish with a zesty lemon tart with cream.
