Great food and fun staff

Really lovely food & vibe

The best cheesecake, gelato, chocolate and everything Italian :)

There’s so much to love about this family run restaurant. The service is excellent with great food to match. They also have an amazing deli where you can buy an array of cured meats and cheeses to recreate their tasty antipastos as home. They also do catering, classes and have a shop full of imported Italian foodstuffs. There’s so much to eat, drink and see, I could spend all day here!

Yes, it's a whole experience.  The staff, the food, the products you can purchase... And boy is the food amazing.  Just love this place!

A great place to eat and shop! A really wide selection.

Amazing food and passionate team.

Have been to La Bella Italia many times previously, but decided to give one of their pizzas a try. Damn they’re good! Tried the most basic of pizzas, a margarita pizza (tomato & basil) and even that they nailed! Perfect balance of base, with sauce, with toppings. With my new studio at the other end of Jackson Street, ill certainly be back here… Every day!

I love to just pop in to get a one of their yummy mozzarella sandwiches heated in their wood fired pizza oven

Yummy! Sauce to die for and awesome service :-)
