Lovely restaurant offering fresh made Italian cuisine. We had fresh fish and a lasagne. The vegetables were cooked well. A nice location steps from the city center. Looks like they have a nice lunch selection as well but have not tried.

I went for lunch. I had tagliatelle with Porcini. The lunch was good, though, due to the large amount of people it did take a while to receive the lunch.

Great place for a lunch break away from the office. Feels like a mini Italy holiday. No frills, full taste - just as you imagine from your Italian mama.

On first appearance this restaurant looked a little bit disconcerting, as though it was a workers club. But the food is really good quality. Typical Italian, where the ingredients and service is all important. We had wonderful porcini mushrooms as a starter, freshly sourced from over the border. And our main courses of bison and liver respectively were perfectly cooked... More

Average pizza and average service, good for lunch break at 13 and not affiliated with the church mission (independent restaurant)

Quite good Italian food. Prepared the Italian way. Friendly staff. It does not get 5 stars because it is a bit pricey, given the basic style of the premises and the location.

I visited Bella Italia because I was staying near by. The place looks like some cafeteria buffet and at first glance I was taken aback. Wow, that first impression was so off the mark. The food here is absolutely delisious. The chefs cook very good, traditional italian and know how to do it right. The prices are reasonable - for... More

This restaurant is worth every little bit. From the outside you do not presume the quality of the food. Even from the inside you do not expect to find one of the best italian food restaurant of the area. The food is fresh, is hand made, is tasty, is like in good local restaurant in Italy. And if you hesitate,... More

I was there once with a friend for lunch, actually we have eaten canteen style (self service), the pasta was overcooked and bland (I am Italian) and the price we have paid was the same price you can spend for a very good pasta dish (for example at Aroma) in the city center. Do not trust who says that the... More
