Within the vibrant Red Dragon Centre, Bella Italia Cardiff Bay offers a relaxing retreat from the buzz of the popular complex. The low lighting, ornate furniture and traditional, bistro-style décor evoke a cosy, relaxing ambience.

With authentic Italian ingredients sourced from real Italian-family producers, the Bella Italia menu is filled with dishes to suit every appetite. Enjoy a delicious pizza, hand-stretched for a thin & crispy base, or one of their many pasta dishes, with fresh pasta produced by the Gaetarelli family near Lake Garda, and lasagne made in-house every day to a traditional Italian family recipe. The menu also features a selection of fresh salads, tasty Italian classics & family favourites from the grill.

Enjoy a complementing glass from Bella Italia's extensive wine list, or celebrate something special with a glass of Prosecco or a signature Italian cocktail, like the classic Aperol Spritz. Kids can also enjoy a tasty Italian feast from the kids menu at Bella Italia restaurant, with a trip to the gelato cart offering the perfect ending to any meal.

Bella Italia restaurant in Cardiff is only a 3-minute drive from Cardiff Bay Train Station, and there are daily offers and specials for diners to try something new.

    Our starters were cold, my calamari was chewy and very greasy where as my partners meatballs were cold. The waitress wasn’t very welcoming. Our mains were very poor quality. I had carbonara and the sauce was like water it looked absolutely nothing like the photo.

    Food took ages to arrive,
    It was freezing inside the restaurant. Awful experience

    As usual we had a lovely meal at Bella Italia, Cardiff Bay. Our orders were taken promptly and we did not have to wait long for our meals to arrive. My cod dish was very tasty but could have been a bit warmer. My husband had a chicken pitsa which was very good. We love the old fashioned features in this resteraunt, staff are also always pleasant. Thank you.

    The restaurant was very quiet not surprisingly as much of the menu was unavailable, a poor showing really. We ordered a side of fries to go with our main meals, unfortunately it was stated that there were none available as during the Christmas period they had been very busy.

    A little off putting when customers were being turned away as they had not pre-booked a table yet there were plenty of staff available but very little availability on the menu.

    Should maybe have considered closing for the day instead of looking as if open for business and turning away many customers in what can only be described as an empty restaurant.

    Booked a table for a pre rugby match meal. The waitress was phenomenal and completely made the meal, and a good job too as we had to wait 40minutes for out food to arrive!

    I booked in order for us to have a meal before visiting the Millennium Centre. It was not as convenient as the restaurants down the Bay but I could use Tesco Clubcard vouchers. The food was good but unfortunately it took 1 hour and 10 minutes to arrive. Although we did have garlic bread in the meantime. This actually spoilt our meal as we had to rush it get to the theatre. We informed the staff twice we were in a rush but it made no difference. I didn't think lasagne could take so long. There were very little apologies made. The Tesco vouchers only covered the food so I had to pay over £8 for a small glass of rose and small glass of orange juice. Excess to say the least. All in all we will not book in this restaurant which needs a revamp.
