We use ingredients sourced from real Italian-family producers, like the Gaetarelli family in Lake Garda who make fresh pasta for us. We love to work closely with family-run businesses to bring you ingredients full of the Italian sunshine, while our Executive Chef Vittorio Lettieri brings his Italian heritage to every delicious dish on our menu.

Vittorio grew up near the Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy, in a picturesque and historic town called Avellino. Here he lived with his parents and six older brothers and sisters. As the youngest of seven children, he often spent time in the kitchen with ‘Mamma’ helping prepare food for the whole family. It’s from these early days where Vittorio grew to love cooking.

Whether it’s a romantic meal for two, a family gathering or great conversation with friends – Bella is the place to be, with guaranteed fantastic food, welcoming service and warm Italian hospitality!

Our Bella Italia Cardiff Bay restaurant is located in the Red Dragon Centre, perfect for a pre or post cinema meal, or as part of a trip to the bowling alley or the Bay.

We are open on weekends for breakfast from 10am, and for lunch and dinner every day, serving our A La Carte menu from 1130am, plus a lunch menu every weekday until 5pm. We also have a fantastic children’s menu in two portion sizes, to suit smaller and larger appetites, from 2 – 11 years old.

We have recently undergone an extensive refurbishment, and invite you to come and see our amazing new look for yourself!
