EAT SIMPLE . EAT WELL
We had a very enjoyable evening with top service and some of best Italian food we have ever had. The pasta and the tiramisu were fantastic!
Great food & service as always definitely recommend & will be back
We went several time and thought service was excellent. The only criticism was the duck risotto was a little overcooked
Amazing gnocchi. Everything was delicious
Four of us went for a first table booking. So worth it! Great food and service.
Delicious food and wine. We felt we were back in Tuscany. 😊
Excellent food we had the beef capraccio and fettuccine carbonara and just awesome. The squid ink risotto was OK but we enjoyed it all so thank you. Will come back when we come to Queenstown again.
Food was delicious! It was the best fish dish I have ever had! Really friendly and attentive staff. The recommended limoncello was the perfect way to end the dinner!
I found the music to noisily but great dinner experience!
Excellent food service and venue. Favourite dinner in QT
Service was great - out waiter was on his first shift and he did a great job. Attentive without being overbearing. Food was great - the gnocchi was outstanding and the pizza was excellent also. We were a little crammed on our table but that is really the only semi negative comment - it was still a lovely setting and enjoyable dinner! Thank you!!

Very nice meal and good service
From the service to the food to the ambience, this place was spectacular! The flavours of the food were amazing, you could taste how fresh it is. Our waiters were great in explaining the menu, told us how everything was locally sourced and gave great suggestions! Coming from Melbourne as well we have high expectations of food, we would definitely return to Bella Cucina and recommend it to anyone going to Queenstown who wants Italian!
