Lovely meal. Excellent staff, especially Milleur who was very efficient and friendly. Definitely a member of staff Bella should appreciate. Will definitely be back with the family and friends soon.

On ordering we waited 25 minutes to be told one of the choices was not available. we opted for bog standard bolognaise, were not offered complmentary drinks for the additional wait. When the meals came, one was disproportionately smaller. The food was hot and well presented.... More

Felt a bit rushed to order but xmas season in a shopping centre so getting ahead of rush I guess. Food hot and generally good but only one sheet of pasta in a lasagna seems short changing for the price so two stars off

Me and the family came down for my sisters birthday. Had a great time, the waiter Miller was amazing and even went out of his way to make my sister feel extra special on her 18th.

Not quite what it says on the tin " like mamma used to make" it's quite expensive for what you get ! Nothing really Italian about it ! Don't get me wrong it's edible but nothing like good Italian food . If you have tesco points use them as £2.50 turns in to £10 ! Staff friendly and we booked... More

Our weekday lunch started well with Arancini & Calamari which were both good portions and very tasty. Sadly our main courses were disappointing. I had the Pollo Lasagne which arrived in it's own cast iron skillet and looked wonderful. Although it was cheesy with nice chicken pieces the actual pasta was a very strange, slimy texture and the more I... More

Came for my wife's birthday. Excellent service, couldn't be better looked after! Was served by very friendly waitress Iwona. Very family friendly, our girls kept entertained! Great food at a good price. Very happy. We had couple of stakes. Best one we have ever tried. Our children ate all of their dinner which doesn't happen very often. Very pleasant atmosphere.... More
