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.

Don't sit near the door as it is pretty cold. Portions were good value. Service was good if a bit abrupt. House red wine not great, pay a bit extra and buy a name you know.

Groupon voucher useless in Edinburgh but restaurant was helpful. Staff friendly and efficient and food very good. Wouldn't recommend the duck pasta dish because it was very sweet and Chinese like

Food, as ever, was lovely but wine is charged at a ridiculous rate.

We redeemed our Groupon coupon at the Dunfermline Branch and found it absolutely great. We received a warm welcome from a delightful waitress and we could not fault the service in any way. We had read up reviews on this branch beforehand and we were a bit apprehensive about the negative reviews - can't understand why people would do this.

Very welcoming staff pleasant environment good selection of food in the "special menu" as the groupon deal does not give you the choice from the full menu which we did not realise till we got there hence why it wasn't a 5 star rating this time. Overall good experience

Booked table for 7pm - confirmation said it would be held for 15 mins. Arrived 7.07 to be told table no longer available so we had to wait. Eventually served approx 8.20. Very slow service. If I did not have vouchers to use I would not have waited. Very disappointing.

Everything was lovely especially the duck with plum sauce and very unusual Service was excellent and location in Sauchiehall street not far from transport links and shopping.

I booked a table and my friends arrived eary to be told they do not do Groupon vouchers on that date. I had booked it. They were thoroughly embarassed being told this in the restaurant in front of all diners. This was told to them many times before I arrived. When even then the manager was very insistent that I could not use my Groupon voucher on this day I was told to read the small print. Which, I had done many times. I produced my voucher for him to read and while he was reading it he was still insistent that I was in the wrong. Then voila, suddenly he realised he was in the wrong. He apologised but customer service was terrible. This was the Edinburgh branch. I was fuming and needless to say I shall not be back.
