We've come here a bit over the years and it has always been a great experience. As good as it's always been today was just superb! Thank you Antonio for a great night out with fabulous food, excellent service and an atmosphere that's pure Italian

Our own little Italia in the heart of Petone. The staff is a real asset; they are friendly, educated and supper fast. The food is excellent, always. Eating at La Bella is not just a meal; it's an experience! Can you please consider adding coconut...milk to your menu?More

Unbeatable! Great food. Great people. Great service. Great venue. We love the Pizza Riccas and look out for the Cassata Napoletana. Delizioso!

Easter Sunday lunch - big family tables, groups of friends, quite the buzz. Good space - it is an old warehouse but full of life, food and sporting memorabilia - all on Itallian theme. Seemless welcoming service with great charm at all levels. The squid...and a caprese salad taken tapas style as a shared entree; the superb seafood risotto and the Rigatoni special slow roast pork ragout with cheese. A glass of Prosecco - v. good; a bootle of Fiano - my new favourite grape; espresso, affogato, and, well it is Wellington, two flat whites!More

We love Bella Italia. It is one place that feels like you are in Europe. The food and service is always of a high standard and the items for sale in the store are a small taste of Italy. Thank you for the great memories...we have made here.More

I'd resume yes, but unsure. I've read a newspaper article recently about problems the owner has had with both his restaurants (Wtn and Petone) with changes to accommodate licencing laws.
