we had booked a window table for my wife's birthday and when we arrived the window table
had a reserved sign on it so it was a very good start to the evening.the young lady ,who appeared to be in charge,seated us at the table and gave us ample time to choose our starter and main.my wife,for the first time,had the beef strogonoff as a main which she said was excellent.i had the tournados rossini which i asked for medium rare and it was cooked to perfection.we will continue to use bella venezia on a regular basis and we do not have any reservations in recommending it to friends !!

we had booked the restaurant for our wedding anniversary.i booked it on line and requested a window table.when we arrived at the restaurant there was not a window table available !!
the staff (zac and jenny)were very apologetic.however,the manager was conspicuous by his absence!
we were placed at a table which was not what we had requested,but was acceptable,as i did not want my wife upset on our wedding anniversary.
the food was excellent and,for the inconvenience,we were offerered an acceptable discount.
i cannot praise zac and jenny enough for their service and the way in which they handled the
situation regarding the lack of window table.

Excellent little restaurant! Staff are very friendly and helpful. Food is delicious and great value for money, although the addition of a sorbet for dessert would be great. Wine is affordable. Could only be improved by dimming the lights a little to make it more romantic. Would also like a little more space between tables - but the restaurant is tiny and we were offered a more secluded table halfway through. Overall, a really pleasant experience. Thank you. Hope to return one day

Lovely, a little smaller than expected and some of the tables are very close together but ours was fine. There was a large group in which made it a bit noisy but nothing unbearable and the staff did apologise. The staff were lovely and so was the food, will definitely be going again

my wife and i had an excellent meal and bottle of wine to celebrate my birthday.
the only down side was,when i came to pay,the card machine was not working and i was forced to go across the road to lloyds bank atm machine to withdraw the cash in order to settle my bill.

Having booked with Open Table we arrived to find the restaurant closed despite a sign at the entrance stating opening hours included Sundays!!
We therefore did not dine here.

We arrived early after booking a table, my wife ordered a seafood pasta dish with linguini, it came with spaghetti and was awful
I ordered sea bass with a white wine and lemon sauce, it came with a spicy tomato sauce, I could not taste the fish it was awful.
For a Friday night the place was about 25% full, we soon found out why, I do not think the "chef" was a qualified chef.
We paid the bill and advised them of our disappointment, the waiter spoke to the "chef", no aplogy was offered or any attempt to resolve the situation

The montepulciano was inferior, the room was cramped and noisy and the veal was inedible.

Traditional Italian with classic menu. Competently cooked but nothing outstanding. I would go again if nearby but would not make a special journey.

As usual, did not disappoint.
The two course menu, with a glass of Prosecco each, for two is excellent value. The quality does not suffer because it is an offer.

A job well done by our lone waiter. There must have been 30+ covers and he did an amazing job on his own. Yes we had a wait a little for cleared tables but he worked that floor like a trgan. Food was outstanding. Everything came out hot and stayed warm through the meal. Good quality and brilliant service. Highly recommend and will revisit.

Food was excellent, no faults at all.
The staff were very friendly but appeared as if they didn't have experience dealing with more than a few tables (waiting and ordering twice seems to be normal seemed to be normal across the restaurant)

But overall, nice place and would go again.

This was our second visit to Bella Venezia and although the food was lovely, the service was lacking. Little things disappointed, such as... not being made aware of the specials of the day, young waiters standing around leaning on chairs with their hands in their pockets, having to get my own coat from the rack and not holding the door open upon leaving. Some may think these petty, but for me, it is poor service. This probably explains why the restaurant was nearly empty on the Friday before Christmas?????

So called authentic Italian! Really. No bottles of Peroni, Calzone Pizzas were frozen in the middle and they were unable to make fresh ones as it would appear they did not have any pizza dough. It was First time we visited, and will definitely not be going back.

We had an early dinner here on a Sunday night and it was great. There were only 2 other people there at the time, but we were eating just after 5pm so that isn't much of a surprise. The food was fantastic, very authentic. The prices were very reasonable, and the service etc nice.

Food was really good. Service was really slow. Not enough menus for the whole restaurant. No background music so just hear others talking which is uncomfortable in a small place. Pizza was great though.
