EAT SIMPLE . EAT WELL
Very nice. Good atmosphere and friendly staff
Great scrumptious food, lovely friendly staff, highly recommend.
Jenna was fantastic
Lovely food and service
The host with tattoos on her arms and piercing in the nose was very unwelcoming and defensive. As we walked into the restaurant she asked nicely if we had a reservation and my partner walked up to her to reply and she defensively grabbed the computer monitor and hid it as if he was trying to steal it or find information. This gave us a bad first impression that the food did not make up for. The food was average and service the same, the experience felt rushed. We had the dinner booked through first table (50% off) and still felt like we should have spent our else where. We heard mixed reviews and wanted it to be good but was sadly disappointed. would not recommend/10
Beautiful food thank you. Friendly service.
Delicious food with plenty of vegetarian options
Great food, attentive staff
Excellent food and service
Great food. Great service.
Love the convenience of online booking and appreciate that I was given the table I requested. Food and service was excellent, that is why Bella Cucina is always our go to restaurant when in Queenstown.
pizza great but everything else was poor. bread at what you charge far too small - salad entrees limp and tiny
We first visited Bella Cucina four years ago and loved it so much it was a "must do" for our return. We all fondly remembered the dough balls with garlic butter! The menu managed to please us all - Nana, Mum & Dad, and teenagers alike, which is no mean feat. Service friendly efficient and meals arrived super fast. Highly recommend this little restaurant.
We always enjoy going here when we are in Queenstown, small, friendly and they make a real effort. Thanks for another enjoyable evening. Jeff
We were put sitting at the back with a view of the mens toilet and everyone coming in and out. There was two larger groups beside us and we felt were forgotten about. Delays with drunks. Receipt was wrong with extra drinks on it that we hadn't ordered.
Our waitress forgot our entree and served them to another table We had to ask where it was as she was giving us our mains The mains except the gnocchi were a good size but the gnocchi was tiny and had to go get something else to eat elsewhere
Friendly service and simply beautiful authentic Italian food.
The food and service was excellent, we really enjoyed our evening with very attentive staff and great food. It was however, very hot inside the restaurant and could have done with some air conditioning or air flow.. In saying that, it was hot because the restaurant was full all night which is a great indication of the popularity of Bella Cucina
It’s a great menu, simple and delicious. Wine is great (pick Italian wines). Small intimate venue, best to book and enjoy the atmosphere.
Verry good service and amazing food!
Fantastic food and service. Little bit cramped, but that's part of the ambiance I guess.
Good attentive service. Fook was OK. My carbonara was tasty but was almost devoid of bacon.
Lovely dinner out, great service and good food
Excellent all round
