Description: The Leeds Centre 27 is a fun filled entertainment centre featuring a whole host of activities including a multi screen cinema and also plays host to some fabulous restaurants including the superb Bella Italia. Great prices and great quality sums up Bella Italia perfectly, and is the reason why you'll find a Bella Italia in most major British towns and cities. The menu features classic Italian dishes from pizzas such as the Tropicale with smoked ham and pineapple to pasta dishes such as the Penne Zafferano with smoked salmon, prawns and cherry tomatoes in a spinach, saffron and cream sauce. There is a mouthwatering dessert menu and a well chosen all Italian wine list along with imported Italian beers.

Visited this Tuesday after the movie and found the restaurant fairly quiet so we could have sat anywhere though had booked on line.
The waiter ( Martino) was very friendly and we shared a few memories of Italy with him as we ordered our food and wine- a fruity Zinfandel.
We both ordered the Minestrone which was extremely tasty and followed that with mains of Lamb shank and a spiralised vegetable spaghetti, both very nice.
The wife finished with a Tiramisu and we both had coffee. Overall we enjoyed our meal very much and it was even better with the Tesco discount vouchers.It would have been an expensive meal out were it not for that!

Booked in advance and the table wasn’t ready when we arrived. No major deal. We were seated and had to wait 25 minutes to order drinks and then we even had to ask. Another 15 for food. Only 2 members of waiting staff, leaving food under the hot plates for ages, but still taking more guests. When we did order the waiter stank of cigarette smoke. Eventually got the starters, which were cold. Then the mains, which were cold and then the deserts. Whole process took 2 hours and 15 minutes. We will not return. Very very expensive too. Try an independent restaurant, chains have got greedy.

Booked a table and arrived on time. Advised the waitress who informed me that there were plenty of tables just go sit down. Not sure if she entered my name against the booking. Some time later we were asked if we wanted a drink. we checked the menu and selected our dishes only to be told that as we had a Groupon we could only select from another menu that had no fish dishes on. Service was okay but not great. Food was not too bad. The starters were okay, but why serve a chicken escalope with breadcrumbs along with spaghetti, I think is weird.

Walked in. Plenty of available tables, but sent to go and stand near the bar and told it would be 15 mins before they had a table for 2 available. There were dirty glasses all over the bar waiting to be washed. Tables not cleared.

Finally got seated. Orders taken. Starters came reasonably quickly, although hubby's was slightly over done.

Had to wait a short while for the main. Hubby was happy with his, although they forget to bring his chips. Mine wasn't up to its usual standard. Asked the waiter about the chips. He went off to check and never came back.

We could see the chefs working hard and getting the food out reasonably quickly, but it seemed to be sat there a while waiting to be taken to the tables.

Waited ages for our plates to b collected so we could ask for the bill. The 2 families seated beside us were sat ages before anyone took their order. Then a further 10-15 minutes before someone finally brought their drinks.

Hubby had to go and find someone so he could pay. Then we had to wait for them to go and get some change from elsewhere.

Won't be back in a hurry.
