Arrived @ 9.30pm Saturday evening to an almost empty restaurant, waited a while before we were seated I think they went to see if anyone was still cooking. The food was good & service ok but... not much interaction.

Yesterday a few family members and I visited Bella Italia for dinner. And in a single word it was amazing. The service from Holly was outstanding 10/10 as was our food. Highly recommend the Ribs! We will definitely be returning. Thanks so much.

Bella Italia hits the Essex coast with its Southend on Sea restaurant, found in the very centre of the town just opposite the Southend Victoria train station. Locals and visitors to this popular British seaside resort are invited to enjoy classic Italian food at good value prices at Bella Italia. There are a wide range of pizzas to choose from such as the Quattro Stagioni with pepperoni, ham, roasted mushrooms and artichokes and the pasta dishes features options like the spaghetti carbonara with pancetta, egg and pecorino cheese or the beef and pork meatballs in a rich tomato sauce served on a bed of spaghetti. Don't forget to save room for dessert; chocolate lovers will adore The Godfather (nutty chocolate fudge brownies, vanilla and toffee ice cream, chocolate sauce and fresh cream).
