Not sure what has happened at this branch but it's gone downhill recently. Understaffed, very slow service and the food is well below average. Very sad to see as this used to be a favourite venue for my family.More

Very disappointed with meal here. Having eaten at other Bella Italias we expected better quality. There was very little meat on my pizza and someone kept burning food in the kitchen. So much so all the doors had to be opened to clear the smell!...More

I love Bella Italia. The food is always nice and tasty. I do feel its expensive though.......2 bowls of chips is nearly £7.00!!

Good food, reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere. Air Con appreciated, but too cold. Not the first time we have felt this!

Set inside Bristol's premier entertainment complex - the Cribbs Causeway - Bella Italia offers traditional Italian food in bistro-style surroundings. Part of the famous UK chain of Bella Italia restaurants, this Cribbs Causeway outlet is well loved by visitors to the complex for its affordable yet high quality menu. If you are out with friends why not order one of the superb Antipasti plates which includes Italian cured ham, salami, tomato and basil bruschetta, mixed olives and buffalo mozzarella and follow with a traditional pizza such as the Italian smoked ham and rocket pizza. Enjoy authentic Italian beers like Peroni by the bottle or Moretti lager. As you would expect from a restaurant set in such busy surroundings, Bella Italia Bristol Cribbs Causeway can get full quickly, so booking is definitely recommended.
