    We misunderstood the times provided by the voucher code, so lost the value of both the voucher purchased and had to pay for the meal, so the meal cost £80 instead of £30. A shame the Living Social service doesnt link better to yours and only offer slots available via the voucher.

    Lovely pasta, great staff, even let me take what I didn’t finish. Service was very prompt and was never left waiting too long for anything.

    Lovely Sunday tea for all the family. We all sat outside Bella Italia on the Promenade and enjoyed delicious pizzas including a gluten free pizza option which is always a treat. Accompanied by the sounds of a well accomplished busker in the background. Wonderful!

    Variety of dishes was very good as was the food. Also very nice to discover when we got there that there was a 25% reduction for a pre-theater visit if you have the tickets with you as we did. Also it is in a very good central position in the town.

    Starters weren’t great, bruschetta was basically chopped tomatoes (tasteless) on toasted bread. Huge chunks when normally it’s nicely chopped and flavoured. The bread wasn’t very crispy either. Service was good

    I ordered wild boar pasta - the pasta was thick and heavy and inedible - more like corrugated cardboard than pasta.
