Front of house good, food not a particulary good standard, over cooked under seasoned. Suspect as the English dont like to complain its what they think they can serve

We have visited on many occasion and felt it was about time we returned. I am pleased to say the food remains at a very high standard. The service we felt was a bit slow but did not impact on our enjoyment.

We found about this restaurant through their sister restaurant, Vita Bella and must say food was lovely!
We went there for pizzas and it was really great but the only thing we did not like that much was the staff. We had a reservation and so we walked in and without being greeted the waitress just showed us a hand like “wait there!” which was a bit rude. Also maybe there is need for a bit more staff as by the time the restaurant was full it was very hard to catch someone and ask for anything.
Just as a conclusion, it is a nice place with really good food and will probably go again.

We ate at Bella's last night & we really couldn't fault it. Staff were very attentive & couldn't do enough for us. Food was nicely presented & tasted as good as it looked. Portion sizes were excellent. I ate off the set menu (two courses £14.95) & the others ate off the main menu. Everyone had something different & all plates went back empty. We had avoided Bella's because I don't eat Italian, but there were several dishes suitable for me & we were told we could change things round to get what we wanted. You can't get fairer than that. Now I know there will always be things that I can eat! This will now be our restaurant of preference & as we are local we hope to return many times. We ended our meal with a free lemon liqueur which was most enjoyable
This is obviously a favourite place as there were at least 3 tables celebrating birthdays.
Thank you for such an enjoyable dining experience.
