Second time we've eaten there, and loved the food. Ordered the 4 breads, which were delicious, but had to ask for balsamic vinegar to go with the oil. It was supposed to be included, according to the menu. All 3 pasta dishes were delicious and plentiful, as was the Margarita pizza. Service was a bit slow, but British waitress (Emma)... More

Went for a special meal with my son but our meal was 'taken by another waitress' and 'sorry the docket was lost' - basically our order was lost in the system. The doughballs arrived about 50 minutes after we ordered and the pizza and salad after an hour and a quarter. We watched a lot of people come and go... More

We were recommended here by a friend and we cannot thank them enough. The food was impeccable, we've never had anything pasta as good as what we were served here. We only wish we booked in earlier in our trip so we could go back again before we left!

I am normally easily pleased as you can see by other reviews so a bad review is unusual and I only do in the hope the restaurant heeds the advice and improves. Firstly serviice and staff were fine but food was so disappointing. The pizza was terrible as it was very soggy in the middle and burnt on the outside.... More

Great pastas and some nice starters including meats they cure themselves. Carbonara was tasty and not heavy and the marinara had a nice amount of chilli.

So full and so many waiting, we decided to go for takeaway. 40 mins wait as they were so busy, so went for a wander and found a wine outlet to get a bottle of red to go with our pizza. Went well, and pizza was good.

Our meal was fresh, light, fish was blackened to perfection and vegetables were delicious. Our server was attentive, kind, and answered questions with enthusiasm. Big gratitude for a delicious meal and experience.

I went there for dinner with one of my friends and we had such a great time. The service there is amazing, our waitress was super friendly and made sure everything was right. Their menu is very creative and changes every day which makes it exciting because you can't just go online and decide beforehand what you want.. Which I... More

Bella Cucina was only about a 10 walk from where we were staying and we were in the mood for Italian, so we took a shot. The food and service was excellent. They bake their own bread there and we had the sampler to try them all. Both of our main courses were excellent and they had a nice selection... More

After weeks of delicious food, we were hungry for some good Italian food and this is the place to find it. Great salads, excellent main courses and delicious desserts served in a small, intimate setting with nice tablecloths and place settings. The wait staff was friendly and gave us plenty of time to enjoy our meal. We went to dinner... More
