The food was lovely and arrived promptly.
Only issue was that after our last plate was taken away, we seemed to be forgotten about and had to wait 45 minutes for the bill.

We used to come all the time we haven't been in a while and had an occasion to celebrate so we booked a table at riverside Norwich when we got there we stood and waited quite a while which was awkward with other customers watching us not being served when we're seated it took about ten minutes for our drinks order to be taken and actually our starter arrived before out drinks did in the end ?
Our meal was average I had lasagne and was disappointed there was no meat or layers really just a cheesy slop
Wished I had something else
Don't think we will be returning in a hurry which is a shame as it is one of our favourite places for date night !

This was at the Riverside complex. Even though this was a Saturday afternoon and a full house, the staff were polite and attentive. The variety of food available for everyone was good (a fussy eater and a vegetarian). Did not wait long for food and was fresh. Especially recommend the shot dessets. A novelty idea for your food. A clean restaurant as far as the dining area goes and toilets were good.

Am sorry to say for the first time really disappointed with Bella Italia last night. We had to wait ages for our meal after starter was bought to us. My husband ordered an selection of olives to begin with (we had to ask for them)? When he eventually got them the waitress just bunged green olives in a dish poured oil on them and put on table. All green no selection and they were so hard he couldn't eat them! We said we weren't happy and waitress just said 'we dish up what ever we have come in!) my stepsons food was late coming out and we were halfway through ours which was a shame. He also got his pudding which were doughnuts and they were rock hard and couldn't eat them! It was frantic in there as apparently all kitchen staff were new and on their first night. ( why out a whole new load of kitchen staff in at the same time was beyond me!) Also there were only 2 regular waitresses on the rest of them were new too!
At one time I counted 12 dishes that sat in the counter to be given out! The atmosphere was dreadful because of the shouting between waitresses and kitchen staff. Very disappointed as we usually live Bella Italia!
