Love this restaurant, the food is superb. The entree cheese platter was absolutely delicious. A wee bit on the expensive side but we did have a 3 course meal for our $150 (for 2). Certainly as good as any Italian food we have eaten in Italy. See less

Excellent Italian restaurant in Petone. I highly recommend the pizzas and one should feed two people. About the only annoying thing was some of the tables are not that steady and wobble a little bit something I find very annoying in a restaurant. Knocked off one star because they don't take pay wave which is very important in this time of trying to minimize contact. Yeah they still surcharged for using a credit card. See less

Absolutely sensational. We popped in for lunch and were shown to our table and had the specials explained to us (with great passion). We decided on the special pizza and cannelloni which was a family recipe. We were blown away by how delicious the food was. The staff were attentive, helpful and friendly. We took a look around as there is a store attached to the restaurant and purchased the delicious soft drink we had, alongside some pasta and cured meat. We will definitely be coming back soon, couldn’t recommend more highly. See less

Very good quality of the oil used to flavor the pizza. Crowded but large room and well ventilated, friendly and attentive staff even if I was sorry to note that some of them serving at the tables weren't wearing masks at all. See less

A nice bustling space but my Margherita came with whole canned tomatoes on it (it's peak tomato season). Service is a bit chaotic. The staff and owners are half-arsed about the Covid protection framework which means we won't go back. See less

Had a great lunch here. 10/10 for the kai, I ordered the fettuccine lamb ragu. Was so juicy and melted in the mouth! My only critique would be the service was ok. I waited on the waiter for 10 minutes after I was ready to order, ended up going up and asking if I can order at the counter. Also, didn’t come and check in after receiving my meal to ensure everything was alright. Just a small critique I’m sure could be easily fixed! Other than that she was lovely and helped me pick out a beautiful wine to go with it. Definitely will be back. See less

Went there with a group of 10 people. We all agreed that food was great but service was disappointing. We had just arrived but waitress expected us to order right away, when we asked for a minute, she literally came back within a minute. We feel hurried and not welcomed. To make it even worse, when it's time to pay, cashier was seemly frustrated, I told her to take her time, but she replied with rude comment. Definitely not coming back. I personally wanted to give 2 stars, but just don't want to hurt business. We may have been at the wrong time possibly dealing with casual staffs. See less

There are only 2 QR codes. Both inside, right by the door, so there was a queue getting inside as it clogged up the door having the codes there. Can I suggest putting a QR code outside the entrance and somewhere inside? All of the waiters wore their face masks correctly, except one waitress who wore hers around her chin. She wasn't our server, but if she was I would've told her to wear her damn mask properly. I didn't notice any social distancing, all the tables were pretty close together. For the high prices the food was portioned on the small size. It was tasty though. When we went to pay the phone rang and instead of serving us as we were standing there waiting, she answered the phone and helped that person first. I've always thought you should help the people in front of you before answering the phone. Then she couldn't find our bill and tried to charge us for table 20 even though I said we sat at table 21. Turns out table 20 had paid OUR bill so she had to add our order back in so that we could pay. From what I hear the owner is a hard person to work for. The 2 stars are cause the food was yummy. But from this experience I won't be returning. See less

Tasty food, warm place, good service and nice atmosphere! Booked our table a week ago, mentioned in the note it is for mum's birthday, got a reply on the following day with options of cakes from their menu due to their no BYO nor cake policy. We were there prepared on the day. Services was outstanding, really made us welcomed Amd happy to be there. 10/10👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 See less

Love La Bella Italia! Went here for a group dinner with 30 people. Staff were really welcoming and looked after the group really well. They were very accommodating for various dietary requirements such as no gluten or dairy. We had some lovely starter platters and a mixture of pizzas and other mains. The pizzas are really tasty and quite large. I’ve eaten from their pasta menu in the past and it is just as good. Would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking to have a good Italian meal out.
