    The Cribbs branch is great and the atmosphere was "lively" last night. The only things we didn't like was being asked to carry out a survey at the table and the time it took to request our bill. I appreciate the restaurant was busy, but I saw other people having the same problem.

    Not a great experience. I had a voucher that didn’t display the code, I showed the staff the printout and the email and they weren’t interested, no code, no discount. Not even an apology. Dessert not great either.

    Absolutely the best - better than Pizza Express! Gluten free options were the best according to those on the diet. Friendly staff and excellent service. A good buzzing atmosphere. Liked the fact it was next to the cinema as we went after the meal.

    Very busy and noisy; noise partly due to awful loud music being played. Service slow. Pasta tough from being over reheated. Staff pleasant, front of house friendly and efficient at seating us. Wouldn’t necessarily recommend this restaurant; have been several times over a number of years and the food and service has never been above average, but convenient when going to the cinema or meeting friends who are coming from different directions.

    We went for our daughters 11th birthday meal with family. Food was nice, however waiter was actually quite rude. Argued over a drink, also I was sat at the other end of the table to my 7 year old, when the food came out I asked for her starter he said she didn’t order one & shrugged his shoulders...she had the kids meals so why he didn’t prompt her to ask if she wanted one was beyond me...(my daughter said she didn’t realise she could have a starter). It wasn’t so much that she didn’t have a starter it was his attitude. I tend to find this with the waiting staff at Bella Italia everything is to much effort for them...however the food is generally quite good that’s the only reason I would return. Needless to say I didn’t leave a tip.

    Sadly we were really disappointed with the food the pizza’s were really dry and the cheese had disintegrated to nothing as seemed over cooked. Spare ribs were very anemic and not marinated just a blob of sauce on top. My husband couldn’t eat them. Glad I only wasted £20 of Tesco vouchers to pay for it and not hard earned cash.
