Really busy when we arrived, but we were immediately seated and served reasonably quickly. The food was excellent - perfectly cooked, well presented, really tasty and reasonably priced. Will definitely return.

We had a good dinner here on Sunday evening, having prebooked on line.
The place was very full and the tables are closely packed and rather claustrophobic,
The staff were very helpful and worked really hard to offer good service.
We had a lovely selection of warm breads with a mozzarella dip and basalmic dip with olives for starter, the Caesar salad and a calzone pizza for mains. All very good.
There were shot sized salted caramel desserts for after.
It was a good meal, and we enjoyed ourselves, but would have preferred a less frenetic setting.

Was expecting great things from Bella Italia. Though was quiet when we arrived it soon filled up and with only two staff it didnt help. I had the chicken with mushroom sauce with potatoes and green beans (well so the menu said) I have to say when the menu actually says green beans I was expecting more than two! I did make a comment and after some time, when the meal was mostly eaten, some more beans came along, luke warm and very crunchy. Also the chicken breast was burnt, carefully covered up by the sauce. No pepper offered. Not sure would go back again.

We had a great family meal in Oxford on Monday 10th Oct -- part of an offer to try new menu. Food and atmosphere were really good -- very consistent quality, generous portions, impeccable and very friendly service. A lot of attention to details -- and presentation of food was v. attractice. Dessert shots are a must (and an excellent idea for sharing !).

Took advantage of a Group deal for a three course meal with a glass of something prior to our visit to Oxford's New Theatre. Excellent deal with excellent food. Staff were very attentive but not overbearing. Will definately consider Bella Italia again.
