We stumbled across this quaint little BYO Italian restaurant on Australia Day evening! What a lovely relaxed setting, very romantic with all the 'fairy' lights - greeted by the most friendly young lady. The garlic bread was superb, we could have just ate that all night! Main meals so tasty - note medium pizzas are big enough to share! Reasonably... More

This was a delightful Italian restaurant. It had a beautiful courtyard and cosy indoor area as well. We had the cannelloni and the fish dishes and they were both presented well and tasted delicious. The service was great, it was a lovely atmosphere to dine in and I would definitely visit again

One of my favourite restaurants on the Range! Good, honest Italian food. Cosy little bistro tucked in at the back of the waterwheel in Montville, pleasant and relaxing atmosphere, and fantastic food! The chef produces from a tiny kitchen, but what she produces is very delicious. Wish I could go there more often!

The front of house staff were genuinely good waiters. Our salads, pizza and pastas were spot-on, and the atmosphere was gorgeous. The locals obviously love this place, and we loved the friendly banter we heard about the dining room. Unpretentious and obviously a local spot for a few reasons. Will return.

I am shocked by the three reviewers with reviews dated 29 December. We were there that night, they of course may have visited another night. My husband and I had a meal at Bella Cucina arriving at 7.00pm without a booking. We were seated right away and then ignored for about 10 minutes but it was very busy. But from... More

While visiting Montville with friends, we picked Bella Cucina based on its reviews. After eating there I can only say that the local reviewers clearly either have very low standards or have never eaten real Italian food. The staff were rude, taking more than an hour to bring our meals. The local patrons were clearly favoured as several people arrived... More

I think we were the only people in there that weren't locals, and we were certainly treated like that. Preferential treatment goes to the friends of the chefs, who yell out to the kitchen staff over our table. This was demonstrated to the extent that we did not receive basic meals for more than an hour, whilst the regulars had... More

Visited with some friends, 30 minutes to receive entree and 45-50 minutes to receive mains. Waitress was inattentive and lacked basic serving skills, like offering to refill water/offer drinks and struggled to take our order correctly. Minutes before we received our mains, we heard the microwave beep - when a few of us received our prawn and crab pasta dish,... More

The service was absolutely appalling, it took more than an hour to bring out a pizza and 3 bowls of the same pasta dish. Locals come and get given priority, arriving after us but finishing their mains before our entree came out. I ordered a prawn and crab pasta, and heard them microwaving presumably our seafood 2 minutes before our... More
