We just had our pastas here and both were good, big enough portions to fill you up for the night and decently priced. My wife had the Primavera with tagliatelle and I had penne alla Luigi. Recommended.

Lovely neighbourhood restaurant with authentic italian food. The fillet with a mushroom sauce is absolutely delicious, it melts in your mouth - sliced thinly with an amazing sauce. Yummy sides of fries and veggies. Relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended

Bella Italia was established in 1999. This upmarket restaurant has a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere. Situated on the slopes of vibey Vredehoek, you can experience a view of Robben Island from the one side together with the mountains on the other. Mouth watering thin based pizzas together with a variety of pasta, meat and seafood dishes are among our Italian specialties. A DEFINITE MUST is a taste of our homemade Tiramisu. BUON APPETITO.
