We didn't have a booking but were seated quickly by friendly and attentive staff. There was plenty to choose from on the menu and the food was reasonabily priced and tasty. I would have loved more options on the desert menu - nothing here stood out and said 'I must get that'. Would return!

It would be easy to drop the quality of service and food when you are the only italuan restaurant within a 20 kilometre radius. This is not the case with Bel Piatto in the village of Medowie located about 30 kilometres out of Newcastle NSW. The menu is a mix of seafood and meat pastas as well as your typical... More

Bel Piatto has an extensive Italian menu covering pizza, seafood, chicken, veal and steaks. We were a group of six and everyone loved the food. The service was good. We will be back as there were lots of dishes we went to try.

The restaurant serves really lovely food but the steak is always hit and miss. Every time we get pizza there is never enough sauce and if you're dining in the restaurant expect some delays because the service isn't great. The pasta they serve is however amazing!!!!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our family dinner here in what looks like an old house set back from the road! Fantastic service from the friendly staff and great value for money, would highly recommend!
