“Loving it...but be careful when to go”
Review of Bella Italia

Bella Italia
Ranked #11 of 28 Restaurants in Bukhara
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 December 2016 via mobile

Bella Italia contains of two separate parts. The cafe is probably the best in town and would blend in well in any European capital. Good coffee and great pastry at a reasonable price level. The actual restaurant is great fun, unless you're looking for a meal in peace and quiet. The nominal interior design is that of a faux Italian courtyard (but on part is French), spiced up with disco lights and karaoke headed by what I believe is the in house karaoke artist (and he's pretty good). That makes the style distinctly Italian, but in a 80s eurodisco kind of way. Perhaps not the setting for a romantic dinner, but great fun if you're in the mood. The food is good. They make a tasty pizza and have a number of good dishes on the meny. It's a popular restaurants among locals and with so many silk road themed places in the old time it's a very authentic experience.

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 Italian, I think it's immoral to eat Italian outside of Italy).

Also, the ice cream was tasteless.

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.

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.
