Went here with our 2-year-old for an early lunch. We consciously try to avoid busy times when we're with our impatient little one as we know service at this kind of restaurant can be very slow during peak hours, and so on this occasion the...More

The food was good and staff were alright but the place has very limited space so you will be likely waiting for a table and those available are cramped and constantly close to bumping into waiters.

Normally when visiting Bella Italia you expect high quality food and comfort, however on my experience of the Lancaster location, the restaurant appears cramped and lacks choice and seating, lethal steps take you down to toilets that are less than well maintained. On balance if...More

Bella Italia has always been great food and really good value especially with the discount vouchers. But had always been let down with the poor wine selection. This has now been rectified with special wines like Amarone and Barolo. Well done

Found just down the road from the Grand Theatre in central Lancaster, Bella Italia is an ideal pre-show restaurant. Offering superb value set menus as well as an a la carte menu full of classic Italian fare, Bella Italia attracts a varied clientele, from theatre goers to locals, families to couple. Enjoy dishes such as the antipasti mixed platter featuring Italian smoked ham, salami, tomato and basil bruschetta, buffalo mozzarella and mixed olives - perfect for sharing. Main course include spicy chicken and smoked mozzarella pizza and chargrilled salmon fillet with tomato salsa and green beans. The wine list is a celebration of Italian grapes and the beers are imported direct from Italy.
