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.

    I booked a table for 8 for a 22nd birthday party.
    The service was diabolical from both the waiter and waitress who didn't seem to know what they were doing.
    We ordered drinks which took at least 30 minutes each time to be delivered to us.
    The waiter dropped the child's meal on the floor and then when challenged shrugged this off by saying 'well it was only 2 bits of garlic bread'.
    The lamb shank was very poor for the price and we had to keep asking for clean cutlery and serviettes.
    Very disappointing service and Meal.

    The food was good. The service was slow but they were busy. We were eating before visiting the cinema and we just made it on time. So we were satisfied and would go there again

    We went yo celebrate my twins 11th birthday - their choice. Not the best service we've ever had here, normally friendly and attentive which is why we dine here frequently. That said, my elderly mum was "allowed" to eat from the childrens' menu which appeared to be a concession as she'd been told seconds earlier that was not permitted. She can't manage to eat adult portion sizes and probably wouldn't have ordered anything to eat if they held firm on their no child neals for adults rule!! Refil drinks for the kids were slow coming and needed staff to be reminded twice. So, yes - I would normally recommend Bella Italia but based on last night alone probably not.
