Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast, Reservations
Description: Offering good value, great quality Italian cuisine and warm and inviting surroundings, it's no wonder Bella Italia is one of the UK's most loved Italian restaurants. Attracting a mixed clientele of tourists and locals, the restaurant is a relaxed setting in which to enjoy tasty Italian pizza and pasta. Tuck into a thin and crispy Carne Mista pizza with pepperoni, ham, salami and pancetta, or the Polpette Americano (meatballs with tomato sauce served on a bed of spaghetti). The Godfather, a mix of chocolate brownies, chocolate sauce, cream and ice cream should not be missed.

Went here Saturday morning for breakfast. They have quite a good variety for £5 on the menu ranging from full English to pancakes fruit and frittatas. The restaurant was quite empty but only one server dealing with all the customers orders and she seemed quite rushed off her feet. We ordered promptly and I ordered a Latte and when it arrived it was luke warm.. I told the lady and she was very apologetic and replaced it with a very hot latte instead. Breakfast arrived shortly after and was nice . Portions looked small but actually were very filling. Overall a nice change going out for breakfast and I would return to sample the main menu another time.

Upon arrival the restaurant was almost full, staff were busy and apologising to a lot of people for their wait times. Waited approx 10mins to be seated. Upon being seated I asked for the vegan menu and asked if any of the white wine was vegan to which the waiter didn’t know. The vegan menu did not list any vegan drinks unlike other restaurants. I ordered the verde burger and was asked if I wanted chips or salad, upon asking if the chips were vegan the waiter again said he didn’t know, I asked what they were cooked in, again the waiter didn’t know. The waiter went on to say “ I wouldnt trust anywhere like this, if we are busy then everything is cooked together”. Very honest of him I thought. We were told some of the wine had run out so had to change to a more expensive wine. The prices are high for the size of the portion. When leaving the restaurant was almost empty yet we still had to take our bill to the counter to pay due to staff not approaching us to pay. Not a good experience at all

Went here for a meal after visiting the cinema. Very welcoming, quick and efficient service and the food was good too. Mozerella starter and chicken a la creme pasta both very good.
