It was a great evening for myself and hubby for our anniversary. We would like to book the high top seat but we confused of the online booking. So, we emailed to the restaurant. They replied very quick that they already organize the right seat for us.
Great food, drinks, desserts, also great service.
We will definitely come back to this restaurant.
The team member - David provided great service to us, very helpful with the order also very friendly and polit.
Great spot, excellent food and service and a bit of an icon in Mooloolaba . Well worth a try!
First time visiting Bella Venzia Restaurant for a spare of the moment date. It was great! The ambience and service was great, but most of all the food was outstanding! Can't wait to come back again and have the spanner crab ravioli again.
The booking was well managed,service attentive,and the food was excellent,we have been before and will go again.
Not only was the food absolutely insane! But the service was even better! We were served by the amazing Craig, who had such an infectious personality. He was so knowledgeable about the menu and gave awesome recommendations. He is a real asset to the restaurant! This was our second time at Bella Venezia and definitely won’t be our last!
Amazing food, Attentive staff and great atmosphere.
Highly advise eating here!
Awesome food and service, we have been many times and its always great!!
Great food great service made for a lovely night out
Food was good and waiter was very attentive although we were seated away from the restaurant at the takeaway counter which was the worst experience ever when you are trying to eat. People standing around your table talking while waiting on their take away is not a pleasurable experience. I could understand this if we just turned up and asked for a table but what is the point booking 3 days in advance if the experience is like sitting eating in a takeaway kebab shop.
Had the tasting menu - highly recommend. Great pizzas and good wine cellar. Very good place to celebrate a special event or just reward yourself.
We were staying in Mooloolaba to celebrate our wedding anniversary - wanted to go somewhere special for dinner the 1st night we were there - walked into Bella Venezia to have a meal. Loved it so much we spent the 2nd night for dinner also. Can’t fault to be honest. Beautiful venue, food, style and faultless service. Highly recommend and we will go again.
We had a wonderful dining experience in regards to everything- food , service, ambience etc. We loved the decor from the marble topped tables to the very comfortable plush velvet chairs. The soft lighting was still enough for us to read extensive menus and enjoy the delectable food served. Also had a good selection of gluten free items which was impressive. We look forward to dining there again!
Great restaurant - a little on the expensive side, but the food was perfect, and menu well designed. Service was great.
Ambience inside looks really lovely too. - we were seated outside which wasn’t quite as nice.
Food and service was outstanding!! Craig was a great host and I highly recommend the venue.
Absolutely outstanding. Could not fault the place. Service was incredible along with the meals and drinks. This restaurant would have to be the best myself and my wife have ever experienced.
We had a wonderful experience with great food and service. Perfect for date night! RR
The food was fantastic and received excellent service from our waitress Melinda.
The overall ambience is great and the staff was friendly and knowledgable about the menu and the wine list. The whine list is very extensive but the prices are also over the top, even for ordinary wine.
The food was very well prepared and presented. However, it was on the expensive side for what was on the plate.
While it was an enjoyable evening, I'd probably not be heading back there in a hurry. There are other restaurants that offer the same level of service and quality of food at more reasonable prices.
The lady at front of house was so welcoming. Craig served us and did a fantastic job entertaining us while taking our orders. Jason really was very knowledgeable caring for us with our wine selection. The meals were delicious. The atmosphere was great.
Amazing food and fantastic service, great venue, thank you
We went to Bella Venezia for dinner to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. The wait staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious and promptly came out to us. Definitely recommend!
We enjoyed our Fathers Day dinner at Bella Venezia. Food was great, wine list impressive, service friendly and efficient and the cost for the 4 of us was good value. Happy to come again.
The mark up one the second bottle of wine was ridiculous. We should of stuck to what we knew was good. Persuaded to try another bottle and it was priced at more than double what it retails at.
Fantastic Food. The waiter was attentive and polite.
Delicious food - yummy cocktails. We will definitely be coming back. Great place for a special occasion!!
We love the food .
Look forward to outdoor dining once COVID is over .
Authentic Italian food - our waiter was very courteous and knew the menu and wine list back to front.
Food is always lovely at Bella Venezia however IMO a little over priced on some dishes. We came Fathers Day and my sister and I both had the Fish of the Day. It was a beautiful piece of barramundi however at $45 I would’ve expected the accompaniments on the plate to be slightly more generous. There was a tiny amount of cous cous and broccolini. And the dish really needed a little more for the price. It’s fine dining so should look delicate but we’re talking maybe a heaped tbls of cous cous.
We were very rushed. Still eating breads when main meals came out
Basically we were in and out of restaurant in under an hour on fathers day.
We have been a few times but this was probably now our last visit
Lovely happy spot - a bit noisier than usual due to the street vendors along the street. Fantastic service by Naomi, the food was tasty, the wine list extensive (on the expensive side) and we had a very enjoyable evening.
the food was delicious, coffee machine broke down so no coffee offered - ambience of the interior of the restaurant in keeping with that italian feel! I felt the staff generally could have been more friendly, upon arrival we were rushed to our table, waiter was helpful but for the rating of the restaurant i felt he could have had a higher professional approach,, very blaise in his treatment towards us, was hoping for a personal approach and not talking to us from another table as walking towards us! We have a fun night out, restaurant was quiet enough that we could sit & talk with background music, food fantastic, would definitely go again.
Great pizza, will be nicer ambience once the new section is open
The bread was stale and served with olive oil rather than butter.
Our waitress Naomi was fantastic! The food was beautiful, service lovely.
Food lovely, service great but a little freezing even with heater nearby. Would go back back and next time request table inside.
A fantastic venue as usual, 3rd time here and will definitely come back!!
Friendly staff, and the food and drinks came out very quickly!!
All round great dining experience. Great food, drinks and service
Great food . Friendly yet unobtrusive
service. Very obliging to modify the meal slightly- they substituted broccolini for the beans with spec because I cannot eat any mammalian meat(spec) due to a tick bite.
Great service, great atmosphere and yummy food!
Awesome venue, menu, service. Generous portions - lovely atmosphere
