We had a late lunch at Bella Italia using the Groupon saving voucher. The food was excellent and the service very friendly and helpful. It was our first visit there and it certainly won't be the last. Well done to everyone.

Hiya, Thanks for the feedback. We are sorry to hear that the Bella, family fun vibe got a little too loud and wasn't the relaxed but lively environment that we'd have hoped for. Our pizza should be a slice above the rest, not un-sliced and...More
