    Expensive for what it was, could cook some meals at home just as good. wine very expensive, no middle of the road bottles, annoyed that bookings could only be made on line, some of us are dinosaurs and get confused on too much technology, it appeared if not booked on line then don't come attitude.

    Food was great, scored 3 for 'ambience' because I booked an anniversary package (as a surprise for my wife) which showed a big red romantic booth on the booking website, so were hopeful of being sat in one despite booking Wed for Sat dinner. Instead we were sat at a standard but good table, so assumed that all the booths were taken. Then spent the evening looking at an empty booth opposite us. Yes, I should have raised it when we were sat, but didn't. When we left after a fantastic dinner I suggested to the manager they need to deliver what they advertise, I was brushed off and told I should have actually asked for a booth. The booking site clearly makes a feature of the big red romantic booths for the minimum spend packages they have, but you need to ask for one - lesson learned. Food was fantastic, staff were great &amp; large, interesting wine list. We'll go back for sure.

    Table of 6 for my wife’s birthday. We were quite a challenge for the waitress ordering the 4 course degustation with 1x Gluten Free 1x no red meat 1x no shellfish and 1x no dairy She didn’t even blink. Took it all in her stride and simply spoke with the chef and arranged replacement dishes to match our needs. Amazing Degustation was really good and we felt it was good value I knocked off one star as I hoped to be in the nice high back chairs but we were on a normal table We will be back. Thanks for making it a special birthday celebration

    From ease of booking, to welcoming and such excellent service we knew we were in for a great experience. Brendan was amazing and virtually selected our food and beverages based on what we told him about us and our expectations. The food was divine and the wine choice spot on, paired our meals beautifully. We will certainly be back and recommending Bella Venezia to our friends heading North.
