Visited the sister restaurant ( Cafe Royale in Paisley) on a couple of occasions, so we finally got around to visiting the original. As with Cafe Royale we were not disappointed. Sitting in Bella Fresca you could be forgiven for thinking you were in Italy - the restaurant had a real Italian feel about it (even Italian TV is shown.... More

The two cousins have done this extremely well, over the years they have developed from a good wee deli to a good big deli come cafe and now to a good deli, good cafe and good restaurant. Simple unfussy food well prepared, well served and - importantly for a neighbourhood place - well priced. Go and enjoy we did.

I have visited Bella Fresca several times now and I've learned that it always guaranteed to be a great dining experience. We have never booked a table and staff have always been really accommodating in finding us a spot. The staff are always friendly, welcoming and attentive. The food is always outstanding. I really do love the Arrabbiata - the... More

My sister and I popped in for coffee, hot filled breakfast rolls, wee cake to share and delicious hot coffee, never been to Italy but if I feel like being transported there on a grey rainy Glasgow night I will head for Bella Fresca, such a warm friendly place.

Bella Fresca never fails for good food and friendly service. It's also terrific value. We had a very relaxed late lunch and are planning a return visit soon.

Went for lunch for the first time recently and its was great. We had the lunch special 2 or 3 courses - depending how hungry you are. Beautiful fresh food and able to satisfy 2 reasonably fussy teenagers. Would certainly go back again!.

we were hungry and wet in an unfamiliar area, and chanced upon this restaurant. Inside, it was warm and typically Italian in atmosphere. we both chose the soup of the day, Minestrone, which was OK ( I have to say that I prefer my home-made version). I then had a tasty, well prepared Cod fillet in a tomato sauce. my... More
