    Fab nice touch with banner for my birthday too

  • (((** 9 October 2016 by Shelagh Lamb from Hetton-Le-Hole, Houghton le Spring

    Celebrating my friends birthday there were four of us. Service was very good and the young man allocated to our table was particularly attentive and catered for our needs especially when we asked the air con to be turned down. It was cold in the corner where we sat. Unfortunately the birthday girl's meal arrived dry and cold.. You can't really make a mistake with spaghetti bolognaise right? The food was returned and replaced with a new one. Overall the experience was good but the place seemed to lack it's usual hustle and bustle. House wine price too expensive

    Food was lovely and fresh. Portion size just perfect and we cleared our plates (really hate it when you get too much and have to waste it). Staff friendly and attentive. Loved it!

    I was very disappointed, after completing a 10k run I was looking forward to a nice meal!! The food quality & presentation were very poor. This was made worse by lack of service.

    First time been to Bella Italia in Durham. Was very disappointed with the menu not a lot to chose from. Service was slow considering it was a Sunday and the restaurant was not very busy. Food was okay but nothing special. I had a pizza which thought was very dry and did not think it was worth £12.95.
