    I came here with a friend 06/11/16, we ordered our drinks which came quickly. The food was a bit late arriving but we thoroughly enjoyed it . I loved the Bella Italia furniture and decor. The waiter who served us was friendly and advisable.

    Tried Bella Italia for first time in years last night. Overall, a bit disappointing,. Atmosphere good and busy, but waitress was new and struggled with English and our fairly simple order. She was helped out by more senior staff most of the time. Starter for my husband, dough balls in garlic (not a patch on the equivalent at Pizza Express,) however main courses, both pasta dishes, were very good. My husband opted for a brandy coffee afterwards whilst I had a scoop of ice ream with topping - ice cream was nice but I object to the paper cup iin which it was served! Not sure we would try this restaurant again. We had a voucher which reduced the bill slightly but there is better value on the High Street.

    Very popular and busy restaurant on a Saturday night, Our hostess was excellent and whilst we did have to wait for items, it enabled us to chat and eat the meal at a leisurely pace.

    Food OK. Service terrible. Waited far too long for drinks to arrive after ordering. Food was slow to arrive and then waitress tried to take plates before we had finished our last mouthful. Then brought dessert menu over and proceeded to finish her shift and not tell anybody we were waiting. Waited over an hour before somebody came over (tried to catch their eye several times!) When I asked to speak to the manager - his reply was "Oh, she must have just forgotten to hand this table over - what can I get you for dessert then?" Er nothing thank you! "Oh OK - I'll get your bill. Unless you are sure you wouldn't like dessert - there are very nice??!" Oh and there was no toilet paper in any toilet - I had to ask a member of staff to get some.
