Perched on the pretty riverside in the town centre, the interior of Bella Italia Norwich Riverside is filled with stylish, dark wood furnishings and pretty murals. There’s also al fresco dining during warmer weather.

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.

    We were sat next to the wall which backs onto the ladies toilets and could constantly hear the hand dryer (could have been worse I suppose). Person who seated us was a bit hasty and didn't even bother checking that we had actually booked a table, then didn't give us a chance to mention that we were using a groupon voucher and would therefore need a groupon menu.
    The waiter who then came to serve us was very polite and gave us the right amount of time to choose and to speak. The food was lovely.

    Sorry but the service was terrible. We waited an hour from ordering to receiving our food. People around us waited an hour & a half. It was a busy night & they were full but the place seemed to be in chaos. Once the food arrived it was tasty but I think that is because we were so hungry by then it didn't even touch the sides to taste it on the way down!

    Service and food was great.
    We were asked to vacate our table at the end because the restaurant was busy and the manager didn't actually thank us for doing so but our waitress was lovely.
    Price was good but only because we had 50% voucher off main course, it would have ben over priced without this.

    Dreadful service, table booked for 5pm, finally got sat down at 5.50, got food at 6.30 which was not Bella Italia standard at all.

    Lovely meal but waste of time booking a table waited 45 minutes for reservation but very busy night

  • ((((* 16 June 2017 by Sam Hempsall from Norfolk

    Considering how busy the restaurant was due to the Take That concert - that we were going to! I thought the staff coped really well under pressure. Of course we had a wait but on a night like that you'd expect it. Well done Bella Italia and to our lovely waiter who kept apologising and being really attentive even though he was clearly under pressure

    Very bad, pizza Very salty. No goats cheese, no music, no atmosphere. Will not go back. VERY Poor service.

    Lovely evening meal - server really friendly. Love the choice on the kids menu too. It's not a grab and go dinner - be prepared for a relaxed dining experience which is fine if you have enough time. Would definitely recommend it. Adult pizzas delicious too.
