We had two lovely meals here. Everything you would expect from a good Italian restaurant, including some great pasta dishes. Very good 3 course special offer available.

Positioned in a square of restaurants this little Italian is very nice. Although not the best location next to an Irish pub underneath another Irish pub the interior and atmosphere make it a good restaurant. The decor is nice and unlike other Italians are relevant to Italy. They were getting busy and we took one of the last tables. The... More

If you want real Italian food with a touch of class, look no further than here. The food is excellent and the service is professional, but be aware of the aggressive owner ha ha ha ha. He's ok really. Very funny guy!!! Great food and night out. Definitely recommend Ciao Bella. SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!

When we arrived we were greeted by the owner, seated and given menus. All good, However after we finished our main meal we were left waiting for ages, so I called the owner over to get the dessert menu, and jokingly said to him ,"Did you forget about us" He said "I am not a waiter, I am the owner",...

Lets put things in perspective. I have been in business for many years and dealt with the general public on a daily basis. The whole truth about this incident was that you was not only calling the waiter, but was shouting across the restaurant. Just to let you know… The table next to you came over to my self later...

This lovely little Italian is located along the sea front. The menu was everything you could want from an Italian. I ordered the mushroom risotto which I greatly enjoyed. A small bowl of parmesan was placed on our table. When we got the bill this had been included! Cheeky! The service staff were pleasant and we didn’t have to wait... More

We stayed in Torremolinos for ten days in early September but struggled to find a decent restaurant because they all seemed to be much of a muchness; meat or fish with a bit of a salad or chips. Thankfully we stumbles on Ciao Bella where they actually use fresh vegetables when they cook, plus everything is prepared locally. After enduring... More

Eat here on three occasions, all afternoon's, food was very good and great value for money. Had pizza and pasta dishes, all very good quality, delivered freshly cooked and piping hot. Also a great location to get out of the sun, felt cool eating outside even though was 30 degrees.
