We were lucky to get a seat here as the town was very busy, the manager was great and found a sitting for us though. I ordered a lasagne which turned out to be very average as the béchamel seemed to have separated out and...More

There are no doubt other restaurants with flashier appearances but if you are after a really good Italian meal that will leave you feeling well satisfied - Bella Bellissimo can deliver. Try the Devil's Bread as a shared starter - delicious.

Rang up for delivery but said did not do it but when we arrived they advertised delivery. Pizza was ordinary and wife ordered gluten free but later that night got sick , so not sure if was gluten free. Try someone else next time.
