I haven’t eaten here yet and I don’t think I ever will.nOnce I read the menu i though I went back in the 80s.nExtremely dated food plus chicken on a pizza??? Into a risotto??? Chicken pasta?? nYou have the luck that there isn’t any other Italian rest around and you come up with this?? Show them how do you really cook,give them less choice on the menu but offer something like linguine with fresh crab and bottarga, a nice ossobuco with gremolata, a nice coda alla vaccinara.. nyou need more Fantasy, love, passion , and proud in what you do if you want to make the difference.

My spinach was green specs through the cheese... puréed like baby food, must be the same blender they used to speckle the Oreo cheesecake! The Caesar salad starter was super tho'.

We had starters warm chicken salad and Mussels . am not usually a salad person but this chicken dish converted me it was awesome . Ger had mussels which she loved . Mains were a red pesto chicken fettucini for me and risotto pitocca both of which were lovely . Overall a good experience and good value . Only low point was the usual overcrowded lay out and a malfunction of the hand dryer in the gents.

Was in bella bia last night for first (and last ) time place was very busy was seated in second room and was placed under a heat lamp that the bearded dragon at home would appreciate, was very uncomfortable also was no atmosphere in this part . Food is only fair and not cheap. Portions of veg very small and were either brushed with garlic butter or had garlic butter poured over, not a good idea in my book - not everybody likes garlic or maybe even inform guests when taking order so making optional. As waitress was presenting main course i asked for another jug of water im still waiting, nobody came near us to check if the meal was ok. When i paid there was no real talk nearly felt staff were browned off over something, overall there are much much better places to eat in Tralee and as i said at the start will never go back

This was really terrific. 5 of us had dinner last Friday night and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. A 3 course menu for 22€ ..,great value. Though two picked mains from the a la carte they only charged 22€. I don't know anywhere else that would offer this value. There were about 5 choices on each. The crab salad had a lovely portion of crab . My husband got 5 chops on his rack of lamb..really tasty. Tiramisu, pannacotta, lemon meringue pie and 2 had ice creams. Wines were corked and left to breathe. Service was efficient and at a nice pace. Waitress Inga was informative and friendly without being intrusive. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant .

I think this restaurant is highly over rated. I was appalled at the customer service, seating arrangements the food was very average.

Dined here recently in a group of 5 . table was not ready for us which is a common occurrence here. We were seated in a an area beside the smoking area while waiting . The food when we were seated was great and everybody including a few fussy eaters were more than impressed . The pork belly in particular was very tasty and the pasta dishes were good specially the seafood risotto . Due to the wait at the start we were offered sambucas or whatever we wanted on the house . With a bit of attention to booking and a possible re positioning this restaurant could be a gem . Excellent value for money by the way.

Very good value early bird and lovely food. However, service is poor and slow and tables are very crammed. But still a lovely evening. Will be back.

Went as part of a group of five.Two of us had the early bird menu which is extremely good value and offers a nice variety of choices.Two had pizzas and one had the sirloin steak.Both enjoyed the pizzas,which are the perfect size, and the steak was tasty,but had just a little bit too much fat.Only complaint from anyone was that the cannelloni was a bit bland but otherwise the rest of the feedback was positive.I very much enjoyed my penne toscana and bruschetta.Even though it was very busy,the service was fast,friendly and efficient.We will be back.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who was a fan but I won't be recommending it to anyone. Restaurant was crammed and noisy, our table was in a poky alcove with barely room for the two of us. Service was absolutely atrocious, they knew we were under pressure for time but still it took 75 minutes to bring two main courses (my companion had had a mushroom started which had been cleared at least 30 mins earlier). Barely had time to taste the main course but my duck breast was bland, and dry to one end. Had to ask for the bill three times. Safe to say we didn't leave a tip, and won't be returning!
