With 20 years of cooking scrummy Italian favourites behind them, Bella Italia is a family-friendly spot welcoming you in with open arms.

It's a cheery spot with plenty of atmosphere and plenty of group tables should you want to get the gang together. Grab a drink at their informal bar and settle down next to their signature orange walls for some much-needed home comforts.

Begin with some of NZ's finest seafood, like their shrimp cocktail or a bowl of steamed mussels from beautiful Coromandel. Their selection of mains is extensive! In the pasta team is fettuccine al fungi, spaghetti with prawn cutlets, penne al salmone and a risotto of the day. Every classic pizza you can think of is there, as well as a seafood pizza that's topped with a fisherman selection of the freshest fruits of the sea.

And that's not all! There are fabulous cuts of meat, like the eye fillet, chicken breast smothered in a sweet marsala crema sauce and schnitzel with meaty gravy or a red wine sauce. If you're avoiding a food coma, there are plenty of sumptuous salads bursting with flavour and fresh ingredients.
