Restaurant description

On the peaceful riverside at Reading’s Oracle Shopping Centre, Bella Italia Reading Oracle offers a great modern Italian dining experience. The expansive terrace to the front of the restaurant is always popular for al fresco dining.

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.

The Reading The Oracle Shopping Centre Bella Italia provides a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in rustic surroundings, with tiled flooring, warm tones and bistro-style furniture.

    Food OK. Service terrible. Waited far too long for drinks to arrive after ordering. Food was slow to arrive and then waitress tried to take plates before we had finished our last mouthful. Then brought dessert menu over and proceeded to finish her shift and not tell anybody we were waiting. Waited over an hour before somebody came over (tried to catch their eye several times!) When I asked to speak to the manager - his reply was "Oh, she must have just forgotten to hand this table over - what can I get you for dessert then?" Er nothing thank you! "Oh OK - I'll get your bill. Unless you are sure you wouldn't like dessert - there are very nice??!" Oh and there was no toilet paper in any toilet - I had to ask a member of staff to get some.
