Usual range of food, all very tasty and served hot, we've never been disappointed. Just wanted a special mention for our waitress Clare who really made our visit. Clare whizzed around, dealing with everything in a very efficient manner. She still managed to keep smiling and exchanged cheery banter although she was under pressure. Hats off to her and thank...

We have always enjoyed dining here at lunchtime. The food is consistently good & the service is excellent. Lisa the waitress we usually see has a really nice friendly personality & nothing is too much trouble for her. She always gives us a warm welcome & is very attentive. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We had an absolutely lovely dinner prior to going to the Mayflower Theatre. The food was delicious, hot and well presented. Our main waitress, Anna, was delightful, informative and attentive. When I asked for an adjustment to my dish, which was not on the menu, she was very receptive and obliging. Other attending staff were courteous and friendly. The atmosphere... More

took my Daughter for lunch and ordered Penne Marco Polo which i have eaten in the past. This meal was as tasty as I remember, and the server was very friendly and helpful. My biggest gripe though has to be the cleanliness of the restaurant. We sat by the window, and i immediately noticed that the skirting and ledges around... More

I feel compelled to write a review in a hope that Bella Italia can become great again. We've been so many times but over the last 3 visits the wait times have been excessive (up to an hour with an empty restaurant), the portion sizes were tiny (we came away hungry) and staff just seem to be becoming complacent! I... More

Sister's birthday so chose to use Groupon coupons for this occasion. Special two course meal menu had very good selection.. Tremendously good service. Balloons and all. Good just gets better in Bella Italia. Yes its chain cuisine but if you haven't tried it give it a go.

Just finished lunch here and it was amazing! Lisa our host was really welcoming, friendly and delivered excellent service. The confusion regarding which flavour drink I had was swiftly resolved with good humour and the meal was really enjoyable. We were given complimentary breadsticks for the little one in our group and we were served our food swiftly and promptly.... More

They were busy and we hadn't booked a table but that didn't cause them any problems.We were seated straight away.the service was quick but friendly. The caramelized onions bread to start was out of this world. I can highly recommend this place and will now happily try others in the chain!

Southampton boasts two branches of the ever popular Bella Italia restaurants and this particular outlet can be found at the Hanover Buildings just opposite Houndwell Park and the Bargate Shopping Centre. The front terrace is wonderful during the warmer months when everyone flocks here to enjoy a spot of Italian dining in the sunshine. Inside you'll find the trademark Bella Italia rustic style with tiled flooring and bistro style décor. The menu features a good range of Italian dishes from pizza to pasta and salads to main like the salmon fillet with roasted new potatoes and green beans topped with tomato salsa. Why not try the Italian style burger or the tasty chicken panino. Wash down with a bottle of Italian red or white or perhaps an ice cold Peroni beer.
