We had dined at Bella Italia in Berkshire many times but on 08/05/11 we dined at Bella Italia Norwich Riverside for the first time, after arriving at Norwich Rail Station. That restaurant was very near to the station and we went there for a late lunch because we were really hungry after a long, long journey.. The female staff (Iveta)... More

We went for our 5 year anniversary, but being students don't have a great deal of money. Upon seeing my partners UEA hoody, Jack, our incredibly pleasant waiter suggested the 50% student discount. Incredibly sincere, and such a lovely man. Clearly looking out for us, and looking for us to get the most out of our experience. Meals were delivered... More

A relaxing place to eat. Unhurried but efficient. Friendly but not over friendly. Pleasantly warm and with soft music which was relaxing. Nothing 'over the top'. Good food at respectable prices. We had Tesco vouchers so brilliant value for that! Desserts seemed a tad expensive if you don't have vouchers. Waitress served us promptly except for dessert because they were... More

Popped in Saturday after cinema I was absolutely starving so I thought I'd have burger and chips instead of pasta, lots of carbs to fille me up! Wrong!! This was over eleven pounds and it is the smallest burger I've ever had, the chips were those skinny fries and it was more of a half portion. Now it tasted fine... More

This is my favourite restaurant because their food is always amazing, comes out hot and you don't have to wait that long. Also their waiters and Waitroses are very kind and nice. The last time we went we had a very nice waitrose called Ivona. Very good adult meal to choose from and the kids meals are a very good... More

Perched along the pretty riverside in Norwich city centre, Bella Italia is a great place to enjoy a bite to eat, Italian style. Just a few streets away from Norwich train station, this waterside branch of Bella Italia, one of three in Norwich, offers a relaxed, family style ambience. Typical rustic Italian interiors with tiled flooring and walls adorned with poster prints of all sizes create just the right atmosphere for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The a la carte menu is a veritable feast of classic Italian dishes, such as the Polpette Americano (meatballs in a rich tomato sauce atop a bed of steaming spaghetti) or the succulent sirloin steak fillet served with garlic mushrooms, fries and a rocket salad. Those with a sweet tooth are in for a treat with the dessert list with the likes of tiramisu and mascarpone cheesecake on offer.
