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!

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.

Took my family to this restaurant while holidaying at Alex Heads. We had various meals including Pork Belly, Catch of the Day Barrumundi, Stuffed Lamb, slow cooked beef portadelle amongst others. All were beautifully presented and tasted fantastic. Great atmosphere inside restaurant. Would definately return next holidays

We had the best meal even though the prawn pasta was not enough for my son and at almost $40 you’d expect it to be more substantial in size. Ashleigh was our waitress and she was absolutely brilliant! So much so we tipped her 👍. She is true value for BV

Fantastic food and setting. Only minor issue was entree plates were still on table when main arrived and another 5 minutes between courses would of been good. But when the food was so good and service excellent besides that will definitely go back when on the Sunshine Coast.

The two of us had dinner here on a Saturday night (we had booked ahead decor food was great. Obviously a very popular restaurant with many menu options. It was nice to eat somewhere with a great atmosphere, decent table service and delicious food. I had the Risotto all'Anata (smoked duck my husband had the Gnocchi, which he found very satisfying & tasty. Would definitely eat here again. An enjoyable experience.

The food was amazing as per usual and the staff did everything they could to give us A1 service but they were quite short-staffed. I think they had a lot of unexpected walk ins. Which tells you how awesome this restaurant is.

It was nice and pleasant. I don't mind paying more for good food but the value was definitely not there. 2 little tiny pieces of meat on a huge plate it's like spit in a face. Small pizza for almost $30 ???? My small kids didn't have enough from sharing the pizza in half. Very disappointing and chef couldn't get 2 different halves on the pizza even when there was no one there(we were told he is strict with that, well you lost a customer. Very little options for kids over 10 years old for a reasonable price and I couldn't even pick a desert and was scared what I would get for the money.
Liked it but will not go there again, what a shame!

Authentic hand made pasta makes all the difference to an Italian meal. The atmosphere and table service were exceptional, which also added to the experience. I have not eaten at an Italian restaurant for a long time due to average meals, however, this meal restored my faith and I will most certainly be returning

We celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary, was kept waiting at the bar for 45 minutes before being seated. Not offered a drink on the house or olives/nuts for the inconvenience.
Had degustation menu at $100 p/h and was charged $27.00 x 2 per glass for extra glass of red . staff should be able to give food/drink story when severing degustation menu, which adds to the experience, this did not happen during service. Ambiance was lovey. Bella Venezia needs to work out what they want to be, causal dining or fine dining.

Bella Venezia used to be on of our favourite restaurants, my son loves their carbonara and he asked to go their for his birthday dinner, I checked the website and the carbonara was on their website menu however we arrived sat down looked at the menu and they had taken it off, they also don’t make garlic pizza anymore so our 5 kids were disappointed!

Bella Venezia is the perfect place for a romantic dinner or friends wanting a top class food experience. The service is impeccable, the food is delicious and beautifully presented and the atmosphere is totally relaxing. Being highly gluten intolerant, I'm always wary eating out but the staff were extremely diligent conveying this to the chefs and the chefs did an amazing job with my gf meal. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.
