Always busy so it's useful to book first. No problem accommodating a vegan, especially good to have a dessert treat. Can be noisy so it was nice to be tucked away in a corner.

    The atmosphere in Bella italia, was very lively and the style of the restaurant was very nice. However it was very cramped in the restaurant during lunch, we were put right next to the kitchen and as Waiters would take the food, they would sometimes knock into my friend. Besides that, the food was fantastic especially the traditional lasagne.

    I had the pasta dish with chicken, courgette, spinach and lemon. Unfortunately my meal was disappointing as it had very little flavour to it.We were of to the theatre and after waiting a while for food to come out there was no time to send it back.

    Bit cold upstairs - but downstairs was full. Party of 8 - had to wait 40mins for food. Then all meals arrived except one - which took another 10mins to arrive. Not the usual chips served with our meals - but skinny French fries which had no flavour and weren't particularly hot. Server v professional and attentive. Not the best experience we've had at this Bella.

    It was only 5.30 and they had already ran out of lot of dishes. The food they did have was lovely and the staff very nice.

    We were taken to the new upstairs section of the restaurant. I much preferred it as it was calmer and quieter than the frenetic bustle of downstairs.
    There was a different menu too to the last time I ate here. It all sounded and looked delicious. Its about average price I would say. Helpful that I had a 30% off voucher too! Offers come through thick and fast if you join the 'Bella Italia' club.
    The food was well cooked and there was not a single complaint to be had. Everything was absolutely delicious and we rolled out of there 2 hours later, replete, garlicky and happy!
