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.

    Ate before visiting cinema. We enjoyed a Birthday Special offer of a free bottle of wine. Excellent meal - very friendly and efficient service. Coped well with a full restaurant.

    Seating area was dowdy, smelly and there were flies all around us; service was poor (we didn't leave a tip), food Ok though my calamari were overcooked, menu looking a bit tired.

    As a bit of a Bella Italia fan, when I met an old uni friend for dinner we decided to go here. As always I wasn't disappointed. The food was good (and good value for money) and the waitress was friendly.
