Went for a work lunch...food was pretty average but service was very poor. We were asked to pre order, yet the food came out slow, not all together and several orders forgotten completely. Wouldn't bother coming back, far better along the Oracle Riverside!More

Description
Situated by the riverside at Reading's Oracle shopping centre, Bella Italia is a popular destination for Italian dining. The restaurant itself is an attractive space, decked out in a rustic Italian style with tiled flooring, warm tones and bistro style seating. There is a magnificent terrace to the front of the restaurant which is always busy during the summer months. The menu comprises of all the classic Italian dishes from tasty mixed antipasti platters heaped with smoked ham, salami, bruschetta, mozzarella and olives to pizza topped with Italian cured ham and rocket. Desserts such as the mascarpone cheesecake with red berry compote keep all those with a sweet tooth contented.
