    There was a shortage of chefs in the kitchen last night so we had to wait an amazing long time for our food which was only tepid when it arrived. The waiter did apologise for the long wait and was attentive but it has put us off returning. I have been in other Bella Italia's and not had a problem.

    Awful...stood for 10 mins waiting to be seated even though we booked, ordered fairly quickly but starter didn't arrive for 45 minutes. Clearly not enough staff on shift. Admittedly the waiting staff were doing their best to cope but they shouldn't have taken bookings if there weren't enough staff. The starter was cold as it had sat for ages waiting to be served and the dip was wrong and I had to wait further. Dinner was lovely and was served much quicker. In the end we were offered another free drink and didn't pay for the starter but that having to wait for almost an hour before being fed a cold disappointing starter kind of ruined it for us.

    Welcoming staff. Food very good, my spaghetti with prawns was fab and my daughters chicken lasagne was fresh and cooked well. It was my aunts 88th birthday and the staff were very warming to her. The background music could be changed to more Italian themed songs.

    One of our favourite restaurants. Had a lovely meal everything was prepared, cooked & served beautifully. Nothing is too much trouble & they are always very mindful of my mother in laws serious fish allergy - we don't even have to explain anymore. Always go the extra mile to get it right & made to feel very welcome.

    There was10 in our party including 2 children. We had an amazing time the service was good the staff were really good and what I liked was the way they treated my 2 grandsons. They spoke to them asked what they liked so they felt so grown up.
