Having visited this restaurant today, I must say that this is by far the worst experience of poor service I’ve seen. Slow, inattentive, meals and left off orders. Our party was made up of separate groups as each had vouchers to use, “no problem” said...More

As always we really enjoyed date night at Bella Italia, food never disappoints, seriously, everyone has to try the carbonara pizza, and our server Alessandro was friendly, efficient and warm, he really went out of his way especially with how busy it was.
