I have visited here on a few occasions primarily because of a friend who loves the place. The service tends to be slow. Food is good but the pasta dishes can be hit and miss. Good value if you get the early bird. Would have no problem revisiting.

Went here for dinner after seeing so much good reviews but was really dissapointed . it was easily the worst food weve ever had in a restaurant . my gf ordered the pasta carbonara and it was basically pasta in a bowl of milk . safe to say we won't be back .

We stopped in for dinner and were very happy with the décor and comfort of Bella Italia. We were seated quickly and our drink orders were taken almost immediately. The menu was great, and had a lot of selection. The dinner was delicious, and the dessert was fantastic, but our service was not. It took almost half an hour from... More

Went there with my youngest daughter for Dinner as the rest of the family had deserted us for a concert in Dublin. The place has really nice decor, but it lacked atmosphere. I think it needs Mood Lighting on the walls which were very dark. We got shown to a table promptly and we ordered off the Early Bird Menu... More

It was my first time to try Bella yesterday evening. The menu was the usual pasta pizza etc. The staff were really friendly and asked us during the meal if everything was ok. I got the chicken salad which was a very large portion. Can't complain! I also liked the way you can buy their products.

Ate there recently with friends for a catch up and the food was just fantastic. If anything the portions were too big and I couldn't finish mine. Starters, mains (for 4 people) and 2 bottles of wine came to about €35 each. So good, we were the last to leave!
