From Our Editors

Bella Italia prides itself on sourcing authentic Italian ingredients for their traditional cuisine. They import pasta from the Agnesi family, tomato sauce from the Emilia-Romagana region of northern Italy, gelato from Pizzi, and cured meats from the Fontana family. Opened in 1991, Bella Italia now boasts eateries the length and breadth of England, including the cities of London, Manchester, Leeds and Oxford. Their menu features a wide range of pizzas, pastas, antipasti boards and other classics, with an array of wine available to pair with any dish. The restaurants' interiors are styled in a quirky Mediterranean design, with many featuring Vespas and cosy booths.

Food was good, we did choose busy time, but still weren't kept waiting too long to be served

We went to the Basildon restaurant. The menu was a bit restrictive as one of the diners was gluten free. Having ordered a suitable meal off the main menu we effectively lost 25% of the Groupon offer so we ordered a random sample main course to share between three. The food was good but the service was appalling. However, the manager made a good judgement call on what we were charged overall so he saved the day. Still, we wouldn't rush back.
