Bella Cucina transports diners straight to Italy with a cosy, rustic Italian ambience.

As you enter Bella Cucina you are instantly warmed by the huge wood-fired oven and embraced by the wonderful aromas of Italy.

Rustic candelabras hang down from the high ceiling, candles flicker in the iron wall lights, there’s a hustle and bustle of dishes and voices, wine is poured from pewter and glass jugs, the vintage Italian posters form an almost gallery like effect down the main walls, copper pans hang on the kitchen wall waiting to be filled with simple but superb food, herbs dry above the ovens, staff are in chocolate aprons and white tee’s, tables on the side-walk provide a great view of Queenstown’s version of the passagiato during summer.

Much more than Pizza and Pasta, Bella Cucina is based on the Italian kitchen philosophy of a daily changing menu to incorporate the freshest produce. Everything is made from scratch with love, it’s fresh, delicious and affordable.

Bella Cucina modify their menu daily to provide you with the best Italian dining experience (outside of Italy, of course) mixed with local and seasonal produce.

Eat Simple – Eat Well.

I made an appointment with my friend to go to this Italian restaurant. The taste is okay. We, four people, ordered four dishes (pizza, steak, paella, pasta), just right, no more, no waste at all. It’s too cheap to make a discount of 63 knives.

Bella Cucina a beautiful cozy setting with an open kitchen. Lovingly hand made pastas and pizzas, freshly renewed, rethought, redesigned and prepared everyday. The waitresses were professional and friendly.

The freshly hand made pasta was delicious and the wood fired Pizza looked awesome (one for next time definitely). Quite hot inside with the pizza oven working its magic so wear something light and enjoy the warm and friendly atmosphere.

The food was amazing even though the I prefer my gnocchi a bit less soft. Everything was good from starters to desserts, very nice service too :).

We had a great first table last night, our server (Sarah I think) was excellent and recommended the Trust the Chef, which we didn't know you did and we were delighted with because we got food they we probably never would have ordered but really enjoyed!

Great experience everytime at Bella Cucina. Lovely, cozy ambience, great vegetarian options, tasty entrees, good wine list, and OMG the starter bread 'puffs' are so awesome. One of my favourite restaurants in Queenstown.

To be honest I won’t come back in this place, the hostess was so rude with me when we arrived there without reason and my plate which I choose was seafood spaghetti but had only 2 prawns and 2 squids that’s was ridiculous, my husbands plate was good, completely different than mine. I don’t recommend it!

Beautiful food and friendly service, we had a lovely meal. There was a wonderful selection dishes, thumbs up to the chief.
The atmosphere of the restaurant had an outdoor/ indoor flow and Jena our waitress was attentive and friendly.
Highly recommend Bella Cucina.

Food was great. We had one lovely lady from California who was really nice. Another one who was a bit rude when she “found out” we had two babies with us. Even though we had called half hour before to tell them.

Good attentive service. My wife had a pork laced pasta dish with lots of tasty pork strips. By contrast, I had the carbonara, unfortunately, I had to search hard to find a few tiny pieces of bacon. :-(
