We were a party of five and were given a great table next to the window. We had a very good antipasti platter, however the main courses were less impressive. My pumpkin ravioli was completely tasteless and swimming in a sauce - more like soup!...More

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.
