The Bella Venezia Restaurant has been operating from this very location since January 1983. It is the longest established a la carte restaurant on the Sunshine Coast. Our menu demands that we source first rate ingredients sourced from local Sunshine Coast produce, seafood from the Mooloolaba seafood port & quality imported Italian ingredients. Each dish is designed to visually please and most importantly, taste amazing!

Really nice staff but my risotto was crunchy, they gave me a replacement but not until everyone else in my party had eaten, then when I went to the bathroom they took my bowl away before I had finished eating. Very expensive and didn't match the quality of the food.

The place was extremely dark with loud awful music and we waited 40 mins for food when there was hardly anyone in the place

My girlfriend and i came for a catch up dinner this month and were absolutely delighted with the 4 course tasting menu with paired wines. We couldn't ask for anything more-fantastic staff and the right amount of attention from the waiters...their renovated lounge dining room was both relaxing and private.
Each course was immaculate-with the Lamb Porchetta being my favourite!!

We found that the food was overpriced for what you got, this was different when we visited the restaurant for diner last year. Especially the wines we found very expensive. Service and ambiance were very good.

as usual, great food, delicious! Gnocchi was perhaps a bit under served qty wise but the taste just about made up for it, fluffy little clouds of yum! Ate our left over pizza for lunch next day & just as good!

We have come often but we were disappointed this time around. I was told the beef cheek pasta was the signature dish - it tasted like a spag Bolognese. My husband had the fish special of baby Barra and was so ill during the night. Really sad because we love coming and have no problem spending money with you but this time was terrible.

The first time we came there was about 20/25 years ago and food was amazing !
Been there a lot since then and never had a bad meal but this time I thought the food was very average and no where near what it was before

Came here for our first year anniversary and it was just perfect. Staff went out of their way to make sure we had a great evening and helped suggest a really nice dessert that just topped it all off. Food came out at just the right time as well, didn't find ourselves waiting and it was spaced well with our entree. Would definitely come here again. The piano music played live was also really good!

Fantastic attentive service, beautiful food that is priced fairly with generous servings. Beautiful music from the piano made a pleasant evening. Only disappointment was my fruit juice mocktail being $15 which I considered overpriced when a cocktail was $18.

Everything was great but it took over an hour to get our mains. Other tables around us arrived after us and already finished by the time ours came. Other than that, very happy and our server was wonderful and friendly

This is a very nice restaurant. I would have scored the food as a 4.5 if the review had catered for this. The flavours were subtle and delicate but so pleasing to the palate. The ambience is pleasant and is in harmony to the target market. Where I feel that this was not a 5 star restaurant was through the service experience. When I am dining at a restaurant of this ilk, I do not expect that the wait staff will interrupt without a thoughtful gesture or eye contact to indicate their intentions. I understand that they have a job to do and certainly waiting until a conversation has ended would not be efficient in this industry, however launching into their own brief over the top of either myself or my guests is somerhingv that I take particular objection to. For mine, it factors heavily in my decision to ruturn.

First time at Bella Venezia and it definitely didn’t disappoint. Spacious and well designed restaurant. Staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. Food was absolutely delicious! Our table was very comfy and spacious. Music was a fraction loud however very pleasant (just made it hard to have a conversation). On the whole, a very positive experience. Would definitely return.
