A quirky and colourful restaurant in the Plymouth Barbican, Bella Italia is a chic Italian dining spot. Giant, higgledy-piggledy lettering of the restaurant’s name lines a turquoise wall inside the restaurant, where there are comfy leather dining booths.

Serving up delicious Italian cuisine at affordable prices, the Bella Italia menu features an array of fresh pizza, pasta, risotto and salads, along with a selection of succulent meat, fish and vegetarian main courses. Popular favourites include polpette Americano with juicy meatballs, red pesto and pepper pizza or spaghetti gamberi with fresh prawns, chilli and garlic.

An extensive wine list at Bella Italia restaurant spans across diverse Italian regions and the popular dessert menu is packed with decadent Italian classics. There is a well priced kids menu to keep the little ones happy.

Bella Italia is next to a Vue cinema in the Barbican Leisure Centre in Plymouth, a 5-minute drive from Plymouth Station.

    We have eaten at Bella Italia many times and have always enjoyed it, however, visited yesterday with my parents, husband, daughter and niece and nephew and we were all extremely disappointed. We had to wait an hour for our food to arrive (had to go next door to change our bowling times as we would have missed our slot) when food arrived the carbonara was so salty that none of the 3 children could eat it and my mum gave them her lasagne which meant she had very little to eat. My steak had fat through it, my mushrooms were cold and my chips refried. Overall, we were very disappointed. Bella Italia was one of our favourite restaurants with my daughter having her birthday tea twice there in the past. We will not be returning after this experience.
