Had dinner here, everything was okay, not great, food was okay, service was okay, location was okay. Food and drinks are overpriced but that may be just Queenstown. I expected more, I wouldn’t say don’t go to this restaurant just don’t expect great.

Bella Cucina is a great Italian Restaurant, which in our view, serves good authentic Italian food. Nothing fancy but flavoursome, homemade and fresh with a good wine list and service.

A first rate Italian restaurant, which frequently seems to have people queuing out the door. To encourage early diners it is offering a bargain “ single course and a drink” for $25 for those dining before 6.00. Well worth taking up. But be warned, even...More

We first visited Bella Cucina four years ago and loved it so much it was a "must do" for our return. We all fondly remembered the dough balls with garlic butter! The menu managed to please us all - Nana, Mum & Dad, and teenagers...More
