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.

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.

Food was excellent! Atmosphere was great! If they had a fan or air conditioning at the back of the restaurant would be great as it was quite hot inside. Other than that very happy!

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. :-(

Unfortunately the food here was quite disappointing, my partner is Italian and we were really looking forward to it, the pasta was bland and the pizza very average and unsatisfactory The service however was good, the girls were lovely.

Pizza was amazing, beef cheeks were interesting.. wine was fantastic and very attentive waitress. I love the feel of this place and 100% would come for the pizza again! Oh and that had tirimasu, which was delicious, and we honestly couldn’t find any other place in Queenstown that served tirimasu!

The vibe of the restaurant was really lively for early in the evening. The waitress must have been in training as she wasn't entirely sure on a few things. Didn't dampen our experience though but I am all for more support for trainees.
The food was really yummy and portion sizes were enough for us. My friend said the Beef Cheeks would be a lot better with a scoop of real veges as it was just slabs of meat with a blob of mash.
The hostess was really good and was able to split our bill between 3 of us! Thankkk youu for that!!!

Amazing Italian food. Closest thing I've tasted to pizza in Italy. We sat outside with heaters above us and everyone walking past was making envious comments and facials when they saw our food.

Entree sizes were a bit small, apart from the carpaccio which was excellent, though would have improved with a wedge of lemon. Happy overall though not highly rated.

We loved this place. Cosy authentic Italian atmosphere, fantastic food and exceptional friendly service. My salmon was delicious, cooked to perfection. The pate was out of this world, shrimp risotto was really good. Coming from Christchurch, we wished we lived closer to this fabulous restaurant.

Bella Cucina was, without any doubts one of the best restaurant we have been with first table. The food was better than what we heard about, the restaurant is so cozy and adorable, the music is perfect as the service was great.

Thank you guys for the amazing time

This was such a fantastic experience with first table. The service was flawless and somehow the food was even better. We were able to get 3 main dishes, 3 drinks and 3 incredible desserts! I can’t wait to make this a monthly routine, what a great way to experience Queenstown fine dining.
