Isa at Bella Italia Portsmouth is the reason we’ll keep coming back! Incredible service, nothing was too much trouble and helped us make our choice when we weren’t sure on what to order. It was an overdue date day and she was the perfect waitress,...we’ll be back again for sure!More

A lovely visit to Bella Italia for me and my Mum. The food we had was from the set menu and was really nice. Our waitress was Georgia and she made us feel very welcome from the beginning. Georgia had a really nice personality and...was really happy throughout. She made sure we had everything we wanted throughout our visit. If all places had a waitress like Georgia most places would be so much pleasant to visit and come back to. Thank you Bella Italia Gunwharf.More

We have been to this place before and I remembered the frozen tiramisu last time, so I had some doubts about our next visit. My daughter wanted to go to this restaurant as a birthday treat, so we gave it a go. Surprisingly, the food...was so delicious, the serving time was just about right and the staff was very friendly. Adult portions are big, however you can take the leftovers home. The good food costs money, so prepare to pay more. Plus the restaurant is right opposite the harbour, so you pay for the views as well. Make sure you sit outside when the weather is good. And the tiramisu was just about right 😜 very pleased with our visit! Well done team and thank you for making my girl’s wish unforgettable!More

Out for an anniversary dinner with my wife, then heard the sad news about our Queen. Georgia was our waitress and boosted our spirits with her positive outlook and come what may attitude. What a credit to Bella Italia. She made our night. Oh, and...the food was perfect, atmosphere good.More

As a Mac and Cheese lover, it seemed like a no brained to order from here on Wed 7th Sept. I ordered through Uber Eats and delivery was prompt. I explicitly ticked the box for cutlery as I was staying at a hotel. The order...arrived promptly and the driver assured me everything was there. I got to my room to find no cutlery in the bag. I tried reception but as they don’t do food they had none. I phoned the restaurant only to end up in some automated system that put me through to somebody but surprise surprise nobody picked up the phone. I phoned the delivery driver who basically said phone the shop. So after trying to dig away at my food with my hands after a 12 hour work day I gave up. The worst service ever and the food was below average. Avoid them at all costs. If you want pasta find a small independent restaurant. Avoid these clowns.More

Three of us ate here on Monday evening and we were really impressed. All the staff were friendly yet professional, and seemed keen to make sure we were enjoying our meal. There was a good choice on the menu, including on the separate gluten free...menu, and nothing was unavailable. The portions sizes were good, the food was tasty and hot, and the prices very reasonable. If I lived closer to Portsmouth, I'd eat here regularly, but next time we're visiting (from Somerset) I'll be in again. Thank you.More

Had a lovely lunch after a morning of shopping. My favourite dish was the gamberoni but the dish should contain more prawns. Nevertheless, it was very tasty. A special thanks to my server Charlotte who did a great job with a smile. Will be back...for soon!More

Pleasant, friendly welcome good service and nice atmosphere. But just not that great. Food was quite average, pizzas were bland, they didn’t have the base we asked for but no where near as good as some well known competitors. Shame as I haven’t been here...for years, and unlikely to again.More
