We live in Melbourne and finding the perfect pizza has been a long term quest not yet satisfied. We went here on the recommendation of the manager of public kitchen & bar, when we told him about our pizza quest. We were not expecting anything special but what we got was better than any pizza we have eaten in a... More

I visited Queenstown to take part in the annual half marathon, and i ate here the night before to fuel up on some pre-race carbs. They make all their own pasta and bread, which was utterly delicious. We had a selection of breads for starters, which with just a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar were completely gorgeous. The spag... More

I love Bella Cucina, not just for the delicious food, but intimate, buzzy dining, excellent, friendly, attentive but def not overbearing staff and, dare I say, lovely white table cloths ! It's a totally authentic little bit of Italian cuisine in the heart of Queenstown...the best little Italian restaurant in town, small and intimate being part of its charm in... More

We called here on spec not realising that it is a 'sister' restaurant to Public Kitchen & Bar, where we dined the previous evening! That said we had a warm welcome and a table was able to be reserved despite it being a busy Monday evening. The menu is good and apparently changed daily. The wine list is pretty good... More

We arrived without a booking and we were happy to be given a table. The food didn't disappoint either. Husband and I shared chicken liver pate (delicious) followed by a pasta dish and salmon for me. Both well cooked and lovely. We shared the tiramisu. The food is good but the service is fabulous!! So friendly and efficient. Excellent spot.

In Queenstown, when it comes to restaurants, one is spoiled for choice. We fancied some pasta and of four or five Italian restaurants, including some fine dining options, we chose Bella Cucina, a modest looking bistro slightly tucked away. It turned out to be an excellent decision. The pasta is all freshly made in house and other ingredients have clearly... More

Came here for our last meal in Queenstown as a reunited family from the UK only to be extremely disappointed by our meals, especially the "prawn risotto" which had no flavour and cost a staggering $32.

Great spaghetti bolognese, the pasta is made fresh in-house daily and you can really taste the difference! Great bite. The mussel starter was also well-cooked with delicious sauce. Tiramisu was very well done, balanced flavours and great, soft, texture, one of the best I've had anywhere! Service was lovely and the restaurant has a great homely atmosphere.
