Di Bella is a few minutes south from the N4 Ballydowd (Woodies) flyover, just off the R136. It is well worth the diversion! Personel are attentive, friendly and efficient and food is not only excellent but very reasonably priced.My party of twelve ordered a large variety of dishes from the A La Carte, Childrens and Early Bird menus and without exception were very happy with presentation and cooking. The wedged shape, modern open plan and late bright summer evenings did nothing to create atmosphere but a good buzz developed as the restaurant filled up.

I had the early bird here which is served all day Sunday and at 19.95euro it is fantastic value. For starters I had bruschetta followed by lasagne with fries and for dessert the most divine banoffi plus a half bottle of Morande. Everthing was delicious and the portions were excellent. Partner chose from the main menu and had garlic bread followed by Filetto Pepe Verde with house wedges and a crumble to finish. We could not fault the food and the service was excellent and friendly, as it was just after four o'clock when we dined the restaurant was not very busy hence the atmosphere was a little bit lacking. We will definitely return as there is a lot on the menu that we would like to try. They also do a children's menu which is very reasonable.

Had a lovely Sunday dinner on the all day early bird menu. All courses were delicious, and in particular the pasta was fresh home made and had a wonderful texture. The deserts were also home made and to die for. Staff were attentive and pleasant, only thing I couldn't understand was the restaurant was only half full. Don't live in the area but would definitely return.

Live close by and so thought for a nice early bird we would give it a try. Early Bird menu is very reasonable, wine menu isn't super, but did the trick. Turned out being the only two people in the place as a couple before us finished up as we got our starters, food is nice, can't go as far as saying delicious.Atmosphere was dead (ya know... me, the OH and the waitress..), and as someone else said previously music was dire and on a loop, think I counted the same songs going around for the fourth time!! Will defo try it again, hopefully next time a few more people will be there to liven the place up a bit!

There is more to eating out than just the food. Yes the food is important but we base our assessment on parking, entry, atmosphere, wines, food, background music, staff and price. It's a total package for your hard earned money. I'm afraid Di Bella failed miserably. Parking was OK no problem. Entry was Ok and we were met by a waitress. She directed us to a small table for 2, but I asked for a 4 table as I like a bit of room for dishes. There were no table cloths and paper napkins were already on the table. The waitress did not light the candle, nor bring a bread-basket. The wine selection was OK, but the selected white was not cold enough and they could not supply an ice-bucket. The waitress looked blankly at me as if this was a request from outer space!. She brought a dry cooler and I had to ask for ice. The background music was some terrible rubbish, so I asked if they had any Italian Music, again I got the shoulder shrug, she disappeared to ask, mumbled some excuse, and never changed any music. Never heard of Pavarotti. The starters of garlic bread and salmon salad were fine. For the main course I ordered a seafood pasta and asked if the shells could be removed, again blank stare and no "I'm sorry we don't do that". The seafood pasta was miserable on seafood and the tagliatelle was bland. My partner’s dish of calamari was bland and tasteless. The staff girl that served us appeared to be confused and lost. The other girl serving lit the candle after I requested. This is a typical 'no-atmosphere, no effort' so-called Italian eatery bordering on fast food. No Italian decor whatsoever, and probably no Italians either.....we won't be hurrying back. Price was reasonable, but satisfaction was rock bottom. People just do not know how to do 'Italian' which always starts with a bread basket on the table......that's when you know if you are going up or down!

I live in the area and have been to this restaurant a few years ago and November gone decided to try it again. I had heard rumours that it had gone downhill but i have to say i did not feel this. The steak was excellent with their home made pastry dish with i think potatoe in it. The cheese cake for desert was all i can say delish and the staff are extremely friendly. The only downside is it was not that busy and i dont understand why. They do a very good early bird. Maybe they should promote more but i would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be going back!!!!
