We visit Bella Italia Exeter quite frequently but have not been for about a month or so. We are always warmly welcomed whenever we visit which makes us feel special. The quality of the food is always good and the extra attention from the staff especially Marek is a very big bonus. It is unusual to receive such attention from... More

Main course was really good and the deserts were great, the only downside was the quality of the Olives were not great, washed down with a Pint of Peroni and... More

Thoroughly recommend a visit to Bella Italia in Exeter. This was our first visit to the brand and we weren't disappointed. A broad range of Italian dishes with a pleasantly surprising large starter platters available. No half measures here. Main meals were of a good size and standard and were reasonably priced. Will definitely visit again.

Once again a delicious meal! Calamari cooked to perfection! Pepperoni piquant pizza with Roma (thin) crust absolutely yummy!

The food is always bad and overpriced (tastes cheap microwaved food), the plates are old and scratched, there's no atmosphere, which makes the visit even more awkward, and the guy working there is grumpy and rude! Don't bother going to Bella Italia...

We spent a lot of money recently on a take out and it was horrendous garlic bread was crumbling and hardly edable. The pizza hardly had anything on it and we were very disappointed massively overpriced Never again.

I've been to this place three times. I've had the chicken lasagna (not bad), a pizza (quite disappointing and not filling at all) and the pollo raviola which was amazing. Tasty and filling and everything I was looking for in an Italian restaurant. I've learnt it now. For now on I'll always order pasta at Bella Italia. I don't like... More

We have been going to Bella Italia for years; this one in Exeter is our closest branch. We usually go at least once a month and we haven't had a bad meal there yet. The staff are friendly, the restaurant is clean and the food is excellent. I recommend the Penne Marco Polo - I remember back in 2007 when... More

I have been coming to the Exeter branch of Bella Italia ever since I came to an open day for the university 4 years ago and I have never had a bad meal here.
