Wonderful pasta and pizza - great service and reasonably priced. Excellent selection on menu - food came quickly

Nice dim lit place, quite a constant flow of guests, no wonder because of the good food, nice service and decent prices. The pizza we ordered were easily the best in Penang compared to Enca and ParkRoyal in Batu Feringhi, although we cant comment on...the wood fired pizzas at Hard Rock which should be nice tooMore

We decided to eat here on our last night in Penang as we had walked past it before. We both had bruschetta for a starter and it was lovely. I had spaghetti bolognese and my partner had lasagna for mains. Both were very flavoursome and...filling! It is a lovely little restaurant and I would definitely come back again!More

If compared to few years ago, the food quality has dropped from excellent to very good. Still tasty though. Pizza Bella Italian I would recommend

My friend ordered a caesar salad. What came did not look like a caesar salad and appeared to have a olive oil / balsamic vinegar based dressing. The salad itself was ok. But it was not a caesar salad. The waiter confirmed this was indeed...the Caesar salad we ordered. I ordered spaghetti. The sauce was a gloopy mess and looked more like ketchup than fresh spaghetti sauce. It tasted like it was from a can. The wine was good. Service was acceptable.More

I went here twice with my family in 7 days, food is absolutely delicious, something for everyone, taste very authentic, staff helpful with children. Halal food. Definitely a must go if you are looking for something different.

Really wanted this place to be good as is only a few minutes walk from home. Our first visit was marred by a very indifferent pizza with thick nasty base. When questioned the chef said it was home made, however my money is on bought...in frozen. Second visit had the snail starter which was good, but no bread basket, complimentary or otherwise, to mop up the sauce. My salmon main with mash potato was served at room temperature with the worst mash I have encountered ever. Thick, hard, gloopy ball of wallpaper paste which was a disgrace to any chef. House wine was good. RM142 for two is RM100 overpriced.More

In search of good pizza here in Penang, thought we'd try this place. Ordered a Margharita pizza with anchovies. What came was a dry flat frozen piece of bread with sauce and dried basil. No fresh tomatoes, no fresh basil, very little mozzarella, too much...salt. They got the anchovies right. Too bad, so sad...moving on.More

Having set lunch, price around 23-40 RM depend on what you choose. This set lunch include soup of the day + pasta/main course + tiramisu + tea/coffe. I choose pasta with garlic and chickend, really good. They have various option of pasta, pizza, steak, seafood...and many. Reasonable price with good taste, things to be improved is the service. Staff not in the good mood to serve guest.More

One of the favorite Italian restaurant at Penang Island, been there more than 3 times, but get disappoint during my last visit, the food taste are totally out, and find out the their chef was taking over by Nepalis. (that is not a problem to...hire a Nepalis for taking care a kitchen, at least he/she need to have an experience or educate in Italian cuisine) A lesson learned, to check the kitchen manning when call up to make reservationMore
