Our story

Bella is bringing Italy to the Waterfront.

As we navigated thru the ever changing world of COVID-19, our team which included Wharf One Food & Wine and il lido worked together to create a new business model.  Bella Fresh Pasta was then launched into the Darwin market on Monday 30 March 2020.

We were thrilled when the NT Government lifted restrictions and we were able to open restaurants again in June 2020.   With the exceptional support for our fresh pasta, gluten free pasta and ready made meals, we decided to rebrand our il lido venue at the Darwin Waterfront to Bella.. 

We are now Darwin’s favourite local Italian Restaurant, inviting you to come together with your friends & family to share an authentic Italian feast.

We are passionate about delicious Italian dishes and a fun atmosphere.

Our menu, inspired by our Italian Head Chef Adriano, heroes the very best of Italian cooking, where simplicity meets robust flavours, fresh produce combined with our Bella Fresh Pasta range.

If you can’t make it to Italy for a holiday, this is the next best thing.
