A quirky and colourful restaurant in the Plymouth Barbican, Bella Italia is a chic Italian dining spot. Giant, higgledy-piggledy lettering of the restaurant’s name lines a turquoise wall inside the restaurant, where there are comfy leather dining booths.

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 is next to a Vue cinema in the Barbican Leisure Centre in Plymouth, a 5-minute drive from Plymouth Station.

    We are far from being critical when we go out to eat but where shall I start! Our waiter handed us the menus without uttering a word. He took our order again without uttering a word. We waited 25 minutes for our first drink to arrive... My husbands meal came without any chicken or chorizo in it as described in the menu! We returned it. When it came back it was very good and as described in the menu but by that time I had eaten mine alone. We ordered two Vanilla Cheesecakes with pouring cream. Again our waiter said no. He brought one cheesecake minus the cream and one Tiramisu! By this time we were exasperated & couldn’t wait to leave. And no the waiter did not warrant a tip!!!

    I wasn't really looking forward to the meal as my previous experiences of this chain have been, to put it politely, profoundly disappointing. The only reason I chose it was that it was my daughter's 21st birthday and her choice of eatery.

    I give credit where it's due and have to admit that I am now a convert. The entire experience was outstanding. The booking was easy, the staff were professional and friendly, the food was excellent and the atmosphere and ambience was perfect.

    I started with Garlic and Chilli King Prawns, followed by ribs and chicken in balsamic bbq sauce topped off with tiramusu. All washed down with a hazelnut michachino.

    Excellent service from the moment our group walked in. Attentive and friendly staff who bent over backwards to help us! The meals and drinks were delivered quickly and food great value. Discount vouchers made it an even more welcoming visit! We will return again in the near future and recommend friends and family to come here.I would recommend the new lighter meal with veg and ragu sauce, delicious!

    Good food, desert choices as always unavailable.

    My visit was probably my last due to the poor value for money. I have not enjoyed the food that I have been served for the last few visits. I feel that the price is hiked due to the number of deals available, so that when you have a full price meal you get very poor value. I tried the burger on my last visit and it was small and very dry, also I paid extra for chilli and was hard pushed to find the additional ingredient. There are plenty of other food outlets that offer better value (quality).

    The meal was so-so however the pasta in my main course was very dry and obviously had been stood out for a while. The Olives served at the start of the meal were basically unedible. They were hard with their pitts in and in brine. They tasted of nothing and Bella Italia had a cheek charging £2.99 for them

    Food was lovely but took nearly 3 hours for 4 adults & 2 children to be served 2 courses, only 3 staff serving & every table was full.
