Popped in Saturday after cinema I was absolutely starving so I thought I'd have burger and chips instead of pasta, lots of carbs to fille me up! Wrong!! This was over eleven pounds and it is the smallest burger I've ever had, the chips were those skinny fries and it was more of a half portion. Now it tasted fine... More

Called in for breakfast this morning, what a disappointing choice we made! There was only 1 other table so it most certainly was not busy! We ordered drinks & our breakfasts & waited, & waited! A good 20 minutes later our breakfasts finally arrived. The bacon was cooked lovely & the toast was nice, however that's where it ends! The... More

Perched along the pretty riverside in Norwich city centre, Bella Italia is a great place to enjoy a bite to eat, Italian style. Just a few streets away from Norwich train station, this waterside branch of Bella Italia, one of three in Norwich, offers a relaxed, family style ambience. Typical rustic Italian interiors with tiled flooring and walls adorned with poster prints of all sizes create just the right atmosphere for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The a la carte menu is a veritable feast of classic Italian dishes, such as the Polpette Americano (meatballs in a rich tomato sauce atop a bed of steaming spaghetti) or the succulent sirloin steak fillet served with garlic mushrooms, fries and a rocket salad. Those with a sweet tooth are in for a treat with the dessert list with the likes of tiramisu and mascarpone cheesecake on offer.
