Came here for dinner after finishing a sunset jet ski tour. Pretty easy to get a table without having a booking, place was busy though. Expansive menu with lots of options. Food was pretty good especially all the Italian dishes.More

It's just a nice place to 'hang-out' really. A pretty good Italian menu in a top location - outside seating as well, with good views. The staff are delightful and there's a well-stocked bar. Inside seating if it's too hot for you. We had lunch...and dinner in consecutive days.More

Bella was a good safe option for fussy people. Food was yummy and comforting, slightly more exxy than I'd expect. Pizza not worth the $$ but lasagna and shanks were great. Expensive cocktails. Restaurant a bit dark.More

I wanted to try Bella as I had heard good reviews from friends. I called the number off google and had a very awkward conversation with an unidentified female. I didn’t understand the greeting, so I asked, "Is this Bella?" the reply was "Yes". I...made the reservation, and it was repeated to me .... at Wharf One". Which I replied, no Bella. I received a text message from a friend as we arrived at Bella, to tell me she was in Wharf One and would explain when we met. Nicole greeted us and I said the name and time of the reservation, Nicole explained there was a mix up and we are booked at Wharf One. I got annoyed as I knew this was going to happen. BUT, Nicole showed excellent customer service and had arranged a table inside at Bella. Nicole and the entire staff were amazing all night, showing the type of service in Darwin we never receive. The meals were genuinely nice, fresh and a great size. The owners need to fix the one phone number for the two restaurants, so this sort of confusion does not happen again. BUT, make sure you hold on to Nicole as she is what will make us return.More

We recently had dinner and drinks during happy hour. Wait staff were very slow to attend to us, even though it wasn't busy. Our drinks took a long time to arrive and orders were not correct. Everything we requested just seemed an inconvenience to wait...staff. There are better places to eat and drink, with happier,.more friendly wait staff. Bella is disappointing.More

We ate here on the eve of New Years eve. It was very busy and we didn't have a booking but they managed to find us a table after a quick drink next door. The food was lovely but the service was outstanding! As a...Darwin local we know how hit and miss this can be. Our waitress, I think her name was Tash, (she had a few tattoos) was amazing. Despite how busy she was,she was super attentive to all her customers, super efficient and despite how busy she was she always had the biggest smile on her face. She even had some mosquito spray when we asked! A rare find in Darwin, she took our dining experience from good to great. Service is just as important as the food and she nailed it. We will definitely be back!More

The ambience was lovely and romantic, service was efficient and food was good. We had an excellent bottle of wine and the Tiramisu was decently sized and perfect to share on our 8 year anniversary. Thank you guys for making it a special evening.

Sat inside, as it was a hot day. Music was a little louder than I prefer, but not deafening. Ordered the Spag Bol... was a healthy serving and was just what I'd been craving. The girls were very friendly and happy to have a quick...chat. Came and politley cleared our table. Definately going again.More
