We had focaccia as a starter and for mains two of the group had lasagne while two had seafood marinara and the other pollo funghi and pasta. The mains were... More

Made two visits to Bella Fresca. First for evening meal. Fantastic atmosphere. Staff friendly and welcoming. Went out of their way particularly to accommodate 18 month old baby with allergies. Great value for money with a very extensive menu. 2nd visit for Sunday breakfast prior to departure back to Manchester. Extensive breakfast menu to please any palette. A little wait... More

Our first visit saw us welcomed by friendly staff who were very attentive. Our starters were lovely. The choice of main courses were a little boring, and when the pasta came it was fine but nothing special. The choice of craft beers was a nice touch. My dessert was a different take on a gelato affogato, served in a cocktail... More

Visited the sister restaurant ( Cafe Royale in Paisley) on a couple of occasions, so we finally got around to visiting the original. As with Cafe Royale we were not disappointed.

The two cousins have done this extremely well, over the years they have developed from a good wee deli to a good big deli come cafe and now to a good deli, good cafe and good restaurant. Simple unfussy food well prepared, well served and - importantly for a neighbourhood place - well priced. Go and enjoy we did.
