Somebody in our group wanted a fancy dinner followed by karaoke, so they suggested we came here. We had some appetizers, some drinks, kebabs and dessert. Ended up paying 90,000 soms each. Never spent that much in Uzbekistan.... The food per se was unremarkable, even if I can't say anything bad about it. (Didn't try Italian food, since, as an... More

Being vegetarian in Uzbekistan is not easy, and I've relied on pizza as a backstop in Tashkent, so thought I would try the local Italian restaurant as a break from vegetable plov. Sadly the food was well below average for either Uzbekistan or home. All three courses were unpleasant; the pizza being easily the worst limp and greasy.

We ordered a set menu as we were 50 people. Food was tasty and a bit strong very unusual . The cheese cake was absolutely divine . \Highly recommended. Service was exceptional.

The pizza and pasta at this restaurant are only average, but it was a great change from a week of Uzbek food. The outside dining is lovely and service was good. Prices are very fair.

This is a nice Italian themed restaurant in Bukhara. I had a local grilled chicken dish, rather than the more Italian themed items. The food was good quality although the service, as is common in Uzbek restaurants, was a bit slow.

We visited several restaurants in Bukhara and none of them could offer a dish without meat, so we made my way to Bella Italia. It's a couple of hundred metres away from the city centre and not a pleasant walk as the pavement follows a disgusting looking stream. I ate outside on 2 nights, so cannot comment on the inside....

After several weeks of travelling Bella Italia was a great break from the local cuisine, we ordered a few pizzas and they actually got our order wrong and we received the wrong pizza. The pizza wasnt great as it was made with the local produce so it was the best it could have been. It wasnt cheap either, compared to... More

Have been here a couple of times. Average food at average prices, good if you want a change from the regular Uzbek restaurants. Last time I was here a man was singing karaoke very loudly and out of tune, in what I assumed was meant to pass for 'entertainment', so we decided to leave as it was impossible to hear... More

This restaurant was a short walking distance from the old city in Bukhara and made for a nice change of pace. The pizza was pretty good and they had a decent bar selection although no good wine (which is par for most of Uzbekistan). It wasn't awesome but it was clean, cheap and decent. The outdoor seating area, with misters... More

I never expected to find an Italian restaurant in Bukhara, but so glad I found this one. I ate there twice, the food on each visit was fresh and delicious, with wonderful service. It's easy to find, just a 5 minute walk from the old town, you'll be glad you went.
