Had the oilive app and a calzone. One draft beer on tap, Menabrea, which was cold and decent. The food was as good as expected and prompt. Watched a few policemen run around outside while we are looking for someone, so that was neat.

As cyclists coming through for lands end to john o' groats, we were greeted with a friendly atmosphere and fantastic food to refuel after a long day.

However, my main reason for writing a review is that the manager went very out of his way to help me out a couple of days later, when I realised I had left an item of sentimental value there at the restaurant, going above and beyond to post it back home, when I was 200 miles away on the bike!

Thank you Tom!

Fantastic service, our waitress JENNI couldn't be more helpful and polite, making sure we all had everything we needed and that we were happy with our food. Excellent food and service. We will all be back again as we recommend it.

With family members in the city mid friday evening. Bella Italia was possibly only place on the street without group of smokers standing outside. Didnt look too busy, didnt look too quiet. Friendy greeting at the door and taken to a table towards the back of the restaurant. Attentive but not pushy service. Looks like good menu with some intersting unusual items. My wife ordered pizza. Hold the boat; my wife never orders pizza. All because the roma style is super thin. I also had pizza,also roma style. Other family member had a pasta and king prawn main course. All were really good, well presented, sensible portion size, lovely flavours. Pizza was best since I had in Da Momo in Venice just over four years ago. We did have afters and they were also very good. I tried some of the shot glass mix mini dishes, others had the cheese cake and the al fredo cookie mix. All very good, and again great flavours and sensible portion sizes. We all tried beween us a shot of the Limonchello and a shot of the Melonchello. Mellonchello was a big hit - will have to make some of that. All in all very good food, very good service and a very good meal

We regularly meet family members here as it is a great location and a ideal place for us to get together. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and the services is without exception. Food standard and choices are excellent. Can get busy as you would expect for a city centre location so booking can be advisable. Never had any problems at all when coming here, it feels like home from home to us. Jenni was our waitress this time, as friendly and professional as ever. Craig was our chef and the food was spot on.
