Bella Italia Italian restaurant review, Southend on Sea, Essex

We have visited this restaurant a few times and have had some nice meals. The interior is comfortable and cosy, set out in a rustic Italian style, as are all the restaurants in this chain.

On this particular occasion, we had Calamari to start. They were a little overcooked, but tasty and a good sized portion, although I prefer a thinner coating generally. We also tried the very tasty minestone soup, with a crunchy piece of ciabatta bread. The garlic grossini side order were long round breads soaked in garlic butter and they were delicious and moist. We also made up our own pizza which came out with a delicious crisp base, and just the right amount of mozzarella so that it wasn’t soggy like some. Accompanying this, we had a very good mixed salad, which came with black olives, yellow peppers and a very good dressing.

Overall, the food and service was good, but the prices perhaps a little high for a chain restaurant.
