A new Bella Italia has landed on our doorstep !!! Hurrah ! One Saturday afternoon we bumbled along to Burton to check out this new place … ! I have never eaten in a Bella Italia before so was very excited to find out just what was in store !!
We were greeted by a friendly waitress and shown to our table very promptly . We were introduced to our waitress for the afternoon and given our menu’s , including the children’s menu and crayons for the
husband kids . Whilst browsing the extensive and tantalising menu , Maria ( our waitress) bought bread sticks for the twins and olives for the “grown ups” along with our drinks order ( soft drinks all round – except Mummy who felt it only right to sample a fine Italian wine … Right ? !!)
Being an indecisive bunch it took us forever to choose what to order and so Maria took the boys to look at the ice cream counter telling them all about the Gelato and what they had to look forward to !! Brilliant !
The food I have to say was absolutely fantastic … it was served quickly and piping hot and tasted divine ! I had the Funghi Arrosto followed by a Mista Carne Pizza . Both were fantastic – the meat on the pizza was thick cut and full of flavour . I didn’t think I’d manage it all but with a helping hand from the teen miraculously the plate was clean !!! The twins opted for ribs and chips , the teen had polpette followed by pollo formaggio al forno and the husband opted for the whitebait to start followed with filetto di spigola ( sea bass) . The table fell silent as we all got stuck in … the silence quickly replaced by murmurs and sighs that good food only can induce ! So safe to say the food quality was excellent .
Desserts followed and well … you can imagine !!! The twins loved being taken over to the Gelato counter and choosing their own dessert … Maria again took charge of this and was just a joy to the boys !
We had a fantastic experience at Bella Italia. The décor was fresh and fun , the ambience was comfortable and relaxing,the food was delicious and of a high standard and the staff were brilliant .. Maria gets a 10/10 from all of us !! Nothing was too much trouble and she was so friendly and good fun ! Bravo Maria !
We will definitely be heading back to this restaurant- there so much else on the menu we want to try !!
