Eat and drink here before every United home game and when at the BBC Media City.Always a warm and friendly welcome from the manager Chris and his staff. Food is always well presented, nicely served and mirrors what it says on the menu. Can get busy at peak times when something on at the Lowry theatre as well as a... More

I felt totally ripped off. The pasta meal was ok. Bruschetta didn't even have basil on it - cheap version with a bit of rocket - no flavour. The butterfly chicken dish was a joke - chips were a handful of frozen dried up fries - a couple of shrivelled up mushrooms and no garnish. All this for £40 -... More

Pre-theatre dinner for two. Good choice of typical Italian fare with an excellent choice of gluten free dishes which is very important to us. Great service from friendly staff.

I purchased a groupon for prosecco brunch for 2 people. We went at 9am 26th March to redeem and despite the terms not mentioning that it could not be used on mothering sunday we were turned away. This meant that we could not now use the voucher as it was expiring that week. I complained and was kindly offered an... More

We go regularly and Chris and the team always look after us. Nothing is too much trouble even though they are often rushed off their feet. There is more competition now in the Lowry but we always come back to Bella as it's consistently good, the team always have time for us. Sandra provided great service when we were back... More

We go to Bella Italia every time we go to the football choosing it over the other entries we have tried around the Lowery. The staff are fantastic and can't do enough for us on every visit including the strange requests from my father in law who is a bit OCD when it comes to food. The food is tasty... More

King prawns for starter ... with shells still on, and HALF their legs. Tails I can understand as it gives you something to hold when eating. So my problem with this is that they split the shells to de-vein the prawns but then just left the shells on, and didn't properly remove the legs. Now this in itself is just... More

We often stop off at Bella Italia or Cafe Rouge restaurants when on trips to Manhester or Salford Medi City, and have to say that the two located at Salford Quays/Media City are by far the best - in particular, the Bella Italia restaurant which is just inside the Lowry Outlet shopping centre. Here, the staff are exceptionally friendly and... More

The stylish Lowry Centre in the heart of Salford Quays in Manchester plays host to Bella Italia, part of the highly popular Italian restaurant chain with outlets throughout the country. Housed in this fabulous waterside development in Manchester, Bella Italia boasts an enviable location within the shopping centre. Diners are invited to a veritable feast of classic Italian food ranging from pizza to pasta and grills to salads. Tuck into a tasty chicken and pancetta salad with red onion, tomatoes, baby gem lettuce and Dolcelatte dressing or why not sample the Penne Marco Polo, a delicious plate of penne pasta topped with sautéed duck in a plum sauce, spring onions and sliced mushrooms. Finish off with one of Bella Italia's divine desserts and wash down with a glass of Italian red or white.
