    Food is average but service is very poor, been several times however this will be the last. The staff are very slow and I use a gourmet card when I've dined here, however every time it takes more staff than required to see ifit can be applicable whilst looking over at the table and pointing. Very rude! Staff look like they dont even want to be there.

    Not very good experience. The restaurant was cold and was getting a draught from somewhere. The staff don't have any common sense or manners and I just feel they are not trained in customer service. We were waiting to be seated and not one member of staff even acknowledge us. Not even I won't be a min or a smile nothing. I just find this rude and I think because the staff are so young they don't know how to handle situations. We waited a while for food and when it came our g bread was cold. Didn't complain they were busy and wasn't too much of an issue. They were quick to move plates when we hadn't really finished and the waiter was taking my daughters plate as she was still eating until I stopped him. Nobody asked if we wanted any more drinks so we ordered our own when mains came. The drinks didn't come and we had to ask the waiter again when he was clearing out plates up. Was really disappointed the staff are just bits of kids that just mumble to you and the food is ok. Won't be rushing back too soon. Bella italia is what it is . Ok food ok prices and usually ok staff but last night it failed on the staff front and I feel they need extra training on how to interact with customers. Also do something about the door as it was freezing in there.

    Not a fab experience . My starter was lovely but I didn't enjoy my main meal . Ordered the light pizza which I didn't realise came with cured ham. The pizza also was poor . You maybe need a few lessons on pizza making !
    The service was very slow despite the restaurant not being particularly full.
    It was also very cold !!
    Had also run out (I guess ) of the children's twirly straws... Kids wanted them with their drink but never arrived ?!

    Arrived and had no knowledge of our online booking! Fortunately they did have a table. Had to ask 3 times for a jug of water, twice for a further order of drinks. Very long waits between courses. We don't like to be rushed but at the same time like to know we haven't been forgotten!! Food was great when we got it but service not great.

    Starters came wrong. Service incredibly slow (over an hour to get mains). Booked for 4:30 as had to be somewhere at 6:30 thinking we had plenty of time, in the end felt rushed.
