The staff were very attentive, helpful and friendly. However, we were extraordinarily disappointed with the quantity of food provided. We were expected to share a small glass of mousse between two (not very hygienic at all, dipping each others spoons in and out. We had to cut everything else in half to share it. It would have been easier to provide the food in even smaller bite size pieces and put the puddings/desserts that were in glasses on a small plate or just do two half size glasses, or put it in a half a lemon or something? The pizza pieces were fresh and delicious and the quality of the food overall was outstanding, very tasty. Bella Italia seriously need to look at other Afternoon Tea's offered and other competitors and their quantities provided. They were very wrong on their judgement on this one. Very disappointed !

Poor experience. Slow, reluctant service, uninspired food.

This is the 3rd time my two sisters and I have chosen to eat here on our yearly Christmas shopping day and we were still completely happy with our dining experience. Needless to say we hope to return on other occasions when we happen to be in Exeter.

The meal was marred by having to argue quite robustly to have thbe Bookatable deal honoured. The staff were insistent that the deal only applies if you pay in advance even though I had an email stating that this isn’t the case. The food was passable although the leeks in the carbara were charred to the point of being burnt and the grilled chicken I had tasted burnt where the grill makes were. The waiter and waitress who served us were pleasant and friendly. We were pre warned that the vegan dessert wasn’t available which was shame for the vegan in the party although he did enjoy his pizza. The whole thing ha sour me off using Bookatable and to a certain extent, Bella Italia as although they did honour the deal in the end I smdobr feel I should have had to repeatedly argue until they relented,

Given that it was so busy, we were very impressed with the time the food took and how fresh and tasty it was. Will be going back.
