    We chose this restaurant because it was on the same street as the theatre we were going to. We booked the table for 1.00. WE got there a few minutes early and it was already busy but we were shown to our table and placed an order within ten minutes or so of arriving. We then had a 50 minute wait for our food! The theatre doors opened at 2 and the show started at 2.30 so it was a case of bolting our food down and dashing off to the theatre. We did not have time to enjoy our food, or to order desert. I would have appreciated being informed of the length of time it would take for the food to arrive when ordering or at least for a member of staff to come over and explain there was a delay. I have never experienced such a long wait for a simple pizza before or since. Did not enjoy the meal or the service due to the slowness and lack of communication from staff.

    Really glad I pre-booked as restaurant was very busy. Saying that - they didn’t skimp on the quality of food and service. Always helpful, smiling staff. Never felt rushed. Wonderful experience- would definitely dine here and so good for local theatres. Would dine here again!

    We both had a very good meal as usual for Bella Italia. We were served quick and efficiently, I expect they realised we were off to the theatre afterwards. We will use Bella Italia again
