They import pasta from the Gaetarelli family near Lake Garda, tomato sauce from the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy, and cured meats from the Fontana family. Opened in 1991, Bella Italia boasts eateries across the length and breadth of England, including the cities of London, Manchester, Leeds and Oxford. Their menu features a wide range of pizzas, pastas, and Italian 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 overcooked and dry, would not recommend this place
Bella italia Southend was relaxed and the food and service excellent.....
Basildon however was the total opposite!!
We visited Hempsted valley restaurant the food was very nice but the staff were very lazy
a month ago
Long wait, tasteless food, not enough staff
Belle Italia in Norwich was very nice, food was fabulous,just make sure you book !! It gets very busy, you do not get choice of tables, and when you tell the waiter you have a groupon voucher they go and get a different menu, we had 2courses ( starter&main) you could have main&pudding, you then just pay for your drinks unless you require a different main,

Nice deal and place, although the restaurant didn’t know what to do with voucher and even gave us incorrect menu, we did order from it but not as much choice as on website
Then tried to charge us more as didn’t understand
We got there in the end !
Pizza was so light and fresh! Good non-alcoholic drink options too. Service is relaxed, but very friendly.
