Always a pleasant family meal.
We ordered beef, salmon and pasta. All were tasty and freshly cooked. Warm service as well.
Thank you for superb food and service
Beth, our waitress was super friendly and helpful. Nothing was a bother. Service was well timed and organised. Great atmosphere. Great for kids too.
Favourite place to eat in Queenstown. Best Italian food!!
Excellent evening all round
I forgot to call up about being vegan and was so well looked after, the food was great! Beth was a great waitress.
Requested booth as we have a toddler, was refused as booth seats 6 but we only had 5 even though it was not busy as we had 5pm booking. Waitress somewhat condescending and rude. Doesn’t seem like much but it’s the little things that make customers return or put them off entirely. Food was great. Great value.
Excellent service, excellent location, excellent atmosphere and excellent food.
We had a delightful time. Delicious food, fantastic service and generous portion sizes!
Stephano was very helpful.
Best Italian in town!!!
The services needs to be quicker.
I ordered a table in advance and got a place near toilet, thank you. Then I got dry tasteless aranchini and then gnocchi with sour tomato sauce , which tasted like from a can and 4 small pieces of cured meat. Thank you, I will not come again.
Excellent, friendly service and the food was divine.
Carpaccio, breads, Pork Ragu and scotch fillet really good. Pizza and carbonara both really bland unfortunately... almost zero flavour to both dishes. Service was warm and friendly Not as good as past visits, sadly
Meals small and lower quality than year before Whitebait fritter poor
From being one of the best Restaurants 4 years ago , we were EXTREMELY disappointed with food this time.....maybe the management has changed or chef, not sure? Food was very average ...... would not be going back
Great food and service! Been going there for years and have never been disappointed!
Very friendly and wonderful food and service
Lovely staff and beautiful food! We came back for more and would absolutely recommend a trip to the cosy Bella Cucina! We will be back again for sure! Thank you.
Lovely friendly attentive staff, relaxed atmosphere, great food and wine, a winner every time. Loved the online booking system, easy peasy.
Best Italian restaurant in Queesntown
Fantastic pizzas. Great table service. Osso bucco and prawn risotto not great. Did takeaway pizza another night and it’s great.
