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.

Went on a groupon and used the Bella Italia at Thurrock Lakeside. The waiting service was poor as was the choice of starter on the set menu. The main course was very nice, but there was no choice at all for the dessert which was delivered in a sort of shot glass and didn't taste very nice at all. All in all very disappointing as I have eaten there before and been pleased with both the service and the food. If you are not going to offer the same standard for Groupon customers then don't offer vouchers under the Groupon scheme!

The food was exceptional, both quality and flavours were memorable. The prices were more than reasonable and considering the quality of food exceptional value. Great choice too.

6 of us went on a Tuesday evening it was quiet and we waited 40 minutes to be served. The young later that took our order gave the impression that she had something else to do and found us irritating. When the starter arrived instead of using side plates we were given saucers when I queried if they had side plates the young lady serving us replaced them whilst continually huffing. After the main we waited and waited for the desert order to be taken. By this time there were 8 people in the restaurant (including our party of 6)! I had to go to the till to request the bill. Finally the food was of a good standard but sadly the customer service spoilt the evening for us. We will not be returning to the Lakeside branch.
