They say a crowded restaurant is a good sign and so it was . We got there late after a long drive and this was the pick of about half a dozen that were open . Food was good , service was prompt , Italian wine and cheese was an added delight , the crowd was happy and so we... More

Expecting it to be a better pizza after reading the reviews but I have to say it was really ordinary. Not bad but not great. Base let it down. Rubbery and just unpleasant. Topping ok. Just nothing I can't get in a general takeaway shop and certainly not an Italian style pizza. Salad was good. Small but good.

Overall great pizza. A bit pricey, but that's what you pay for a decent pizza. Only comment I would make is we were take away and I could see pizzas sitting on top of the oven. And the manager of the resturant was too busy talking to customers, and was not worry about the pizzas sitting there, for us and... More

Frank and his team are doing an outstanding job. We have been to Bella many times, and it just keeps getting better. Highlights of the most recent visit were tortellini in a fine broth and flavorsome lamb ragu. And don't miss Frank's Spicy Balls!!

I booked Bella Bellissimo for a family gathering on the recommendation of local friends. As it was a special occasion my daughter and I gave it a trial run the night before the event for 8 people. We shared a pizza that was wow, and a fritto Misto, with local fresh seafood , and that was enough for us to... More

This restaurant is busy every night so I recommend booking before you go! I went in a group of 8. The food was all average, nice but not exceptional (although the squid was delicious) there was a young boy working at the time out the front that done an amazing job and everyone loved him

We had dinner, Spaghetti Calamari and Putanesca, followed by honey comb Afogato, and Panacotta just delicious and the prices are reasonable. Log gas fire made it cosy over looking the water ways. Highly recommend.
