Ordered two calazone pizzas, with tomato sauce and mottsarelle cheese. Pizzas arrived with COLD tomato sauce and a miniscule amount at that. Had to be all sent back for replacement, which meant a 15 minutes wait, watching our granddaughter eating her meal. Replacements adequate, although one had red onion which through poor preparation and cooking, was inedible. The pizzas weren't... More

'Please wait here to be seated' ...well my sister and I waited...waited...waited....we could see three waiters, all totally ignored us. My sister needed to sit down ( mobility difficulties) we caught their eye several times but no acknowledgement of our presence, I guess they were too busy and didn't need our custom. Now that hey will not have it again.... More

Visited Bella Italia while shopping at the Arndale on a busy Sunday lunchtime - we were seated quickly by attentive (but nor overbearing) and knowledgeable staff who took our drinks order straight away and gave us just the right amount of menu browsing time before returning to take our order. Drinks arrived quickly and we spent time people watching under... More

Having been to and enjoyed Bella Italia in other cities before, we decided to go for tea before going to see Olly Murs. Did not have to wait for a table but then had a lengthy wait for our order to be taken, then for our drinks to come and then for our meals. Very disappointed at the service although... More

The legendary Arndale Centre in central Manchester is home to the excellent Bella Italia, where great Italian food at great prices is served. Set amongst the hundreds of shops in this huge indoor shopping complex, Bella Italia offers rustic yet stylish interiors, with lots of dark polished wood and walls adorned with poster prints. There is a lovely terrace outside the main dining room where diners can enjoy the buzz of the shopping centre. Aside from the a la carte menu Bella Italia offers great value set menus too where you might start with a warming soup of the day with ciabatta followed by a Sorrentina Fusilli (fusilli pasta with tomato, mozzarella and basil sauce). Finish with a zesty lemon tart with cream.
