This is a perfect place to enjoy a quiet dinner with family and friends of small group. The interior design is small and simple, slightly dark with dim lights. The ambient is cozy. I had a very relaxing dinner on my visit. The food tasted good, big in portion although the price is slightly on the high end. Advise to... More

By 9.45pm right after our food arrived, we were handed the billed and were told to finish up cos they were closing up.. Speechless. Ruined our... More

The ambience of the restaurant was quite nice, even though the restaurant itself was not that big, but the desks were not too close to each other. Providing you with sufficient personal space. My wife and I both ordered several different pizzas to try, the portion of the pizza was quite small, and the taste was not bad. Nothing to... More

In Penang, there is 1 (one) recommendation place to eat pizza with romantic interior. That is Bella Italia!! I will go there again and again for eating only. Bravo Bella Italia.

Even at lunch time this place felt like a great vibe. I would have loved to have gone back for the live music and Djs. The food was great, service, and wine.

I love this restaurant. I go back there at least once, whenever I'm in Penang. For the quality of the food, the price is very reasonable. I really love the pasta dishes; the sauces are just delightful. The Tiramisu dessert is also delicious. And it's big enough to be shared between 2 people. 100% recommended.

I used to go to Bella Italia quite often until the restaurant manager(Indian, left the place) used to know me by name. Not sure whether it was my imagination or factual. But my wife and I noticed some slide in quality of food served. If you follow my recent reviews on TripAdvisor, you will note that there are some new... More
