Service: My first impression is of the restaurant was how miserable the staff look. The ladies were polite enough when interacting with customers, but there seemed to be some tension between them. One lady who appeared to be the manager was rudely barking orders at a younger lady. My partner and I looked at each other in shock. Another guy was complaining in ear shot of customers. Was extremely awkward and tense. Food: The food was good, I like to review most places I go to and in comparison the food sits in the ok basket for me. Not something I will be rushing back to. The pasta was cooked perfectly. The pesto pasta was fairly bland and probably doesn’t need kale…. The ragu needed a bit more sweetness for me, but none the less was still good. The pork belly could have done with a bit more crisp, but the flavours of the sauces were my favourite thing about the whole meal. Atmosphere: The staff tension and the decor needs some work.

For Aiko's 14th birthday party with so many children disabled and not and all sorts of diets, parents and kids, everyone had a great time. Thanks to Pina and the crew at Bella for a memorable birthday party.

We had our yearly Christmas party in this restaurant for this year. I really appreciated this place as the staff were very attentive. We had platter food and I loved the pulled pork slider and the pork belly. Beer prices were reasonable. The ambiance was also very good and we had fun as a team. There is a light show going on at the waterfront right now and you can just literally see it from the restaurant. It is very warm on the outside though, so I think adding cooler fans would be a great idea on top of the ceiling fans. Also, I would like to advice the public to be careful leaving their bags anywhere because there might be some individuals with bad intention and just observing and looking for the right time to steal belongings. They would roam around and pretend to be on their phone but actually they are looking for potential bags to steal. It happened while we were there, but luckily our other colleague was alert enough to notice the 2 suspicious people so he hid one of my colleague's bag. The manager I guess was well aware of these people and he actually followed them around which is very commendable. Overall, it was a very good experience. I recommend this place!

Great little Italian restaurant on the waterfront. Catered well for our family with an age range from 5-70yrs. Food was tasty and good sized portions. We were lucky enough to be given an extra dish to taste. Mostly outside dining, so can be a little hot in the summer months. Staff super friendly and helpful.
