Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was cold and the Meatballs were a strange taste....The Bread was thick and dry. We went elsewhere the next night.More

This is a great place to eat and have a quiet meal. The food's awesome and the staff are excellent in every way! We had 2 courses and enjoyed every morsel. The staff were efficient and super friendly (but not in a creepy way).

Good food and friendly service We walked in for a dinner at Bella Cucina while our stay in Montville. The food was alright. We ordered a pesto chicken pizza and a prawns and crab meat pasta. Pizza was good and the pasta was average. Friendly...service provided by the staff. Good place to go for a dinner as there aren’t many places open in the village for a dinner.More

This little gem of a restaurant in Montville was a delightful surprise. The potato and rosemary oil pizza was rustic, authentic and one of the most delicious pizzas we have ever tasted. No cheese! We thoroughly recommend the King prawn and sand crab linguini -...next level!! This is a light creamy pasta 🍝 with a hint of chilli which broke up the usual creamy heaviness of a pasta of this nature. DELICIOUS!! The service was impeccable. A thoroughly enjoyable dinner. Do yourself a favour and head there for lunch or dinner 🍽More

This place is a definite hidden gem, and tucked in behind a decor store too! We visited two nights in a row, as our experience left us rambling for hours about the greatness after our first visit. The garlic pizza breads are Amazing! Fresh home...made bases and garlicky topping, excellent entree. Our main meals of the king prawn & sandcrab Linguine and the scallop & asparagus in lemon sauce were to die for! They didn't hold back with the portions of seafood, it was really generous and fresh and delicious! Also tried the carbonara and for such a cheesy sticky sauce to remain thick and not go watery or slop was great. So full of flavour. If you are after a fantastic meal in montville here is your place. Really friendly and quick service, prices are reasonable and fair. Byo alcohol, they have glasses for you. Non-alcoholic drinks are available also. They offer takeaway also I believe. Parking is easy in the main street. Oh! They make the best coffee in town also. No fancy milks or syrups, just plain old capp's or flat white or latte, whatever you prefer. So good, you don't want to miss this one.More

We live locally and are embarrassed to admit that we didn’t know about this gem. We love Italian food but have so often been disappointed at Australian attempts to emulate it. Bella Cucina was buzzing on the night we went and for good reason. We...both had pasta and it was just perfect. We look forward to making this our ‘go to’ local restaurant.More

We were in Montville for 5 nights and actually came here twice for dinner! The cannelloni and the carbonara were delicious on our first visit and the pasta with mussels in a lemon sauce make me want to go back to Montville! Friendly service, cute...restaurant! BYO but they do have a few house wines! Thank you!More

Some of the best Italian food I’ve had in Australia! A lovely location and great atmosphere. Food was excellent - we had the seafood fettuccini and tiramisu for dessert. BYO is so convenient as well, could bring a nice bottle of wind with us to...have with dinner. Holding out for the next trip to montville so can come back again!More

Was told by the staff on arrival that the wait time might be a bit longer due to them being understaffed that particular day which was fine as we weren’t in a hurry. After ordering we watched the them bring containers of pre cooked food...including pasta from out the back. As suspected when, our meals were brought out, they were very obviously reheated. The spaghetti Bolognese wasn’t even hot. Extremely disappointed as we have eaten here before and enjoyed it. Staff offered no discount and blatantly lied saying the food was not reheated. Watched another stack of containers of cooked pasta being taken out the back as we were leaving. Will definitely never eat here again.More
