After a disastrous visit to the New Brighton branch last year, I did not have very high expectations. However, the waitress was very polite and the Queen Margherita was very delicious. It is not very big, so expect to have to wait for a table after 12:30.

We went to Bella Italia without a reservation on New Year's Eve. The team managed to find us a table, and how lucky we were! The food was delicious and the atmosphere really nice. Strongly recommend.

Cold hot chocolate, coffee without créma (in Italian café??) on top, waitresses busy talking to each other... The only good thing is location and décor, but not worth the money.

Chester was very quiet and not many people in the restaurants. Hence no problem getting a table, we were welcomed and the staff were friendly in fact they made a lovely atmosphere although few people in the place. Recommend the Pizzas which were incredible. Very good value for money especially as I had a voucher of the internet for a... More

While the food was very good, the general service by the staff disappointing. Majority of the time they were congregated around the bar, on their personal phones unaware of people waiting for their service. Staff seem unfriendly and inhospitable. Felt like it was a chore for them to serve us. Probably won't return.

We were enjoying a day out in Chester and fancied a Pizza for lunch. The waitress was very pleasant, the house wine was perfectly acceptable but the pizzas were very disappointing. We both ordered a Pizza Cotto. The bases could have been crisper, the toppings were not very substantial - there wasn't enough cheese and mushrooms and some pieces of... More

We recently had a very dissapointing trip to Bella Italia in Chester. Having visited other restaurants within the chain, we had experienced basic but consistently good food, a relaxing, cosy atmosphere and attentive service. Not this time. Let me start with the positive, the staff are generally very friendly when they do serve you and the atmosphere is cosy and... More
