Fine ingredients, time-honoured recipes and a touch of elegance merge seamlessly at Nottingham’s Bella Mia.

An ideal location for private gatherings, Bella Mia on Hucknall’s Annesley Road even features a garden and patio that’s suitable for weddings, christenings or anniversaries.
While Bella Mia excels in offering a fantastic dining atmosphere, it’s a foodie favourite thanks to its rustic Italian specialities. For purists, the pizza doesn’t get much better than at this popular restaurant, and feature a boldly flavoured tomato sauce, the finest cheeses and a number of gourmet toppings which highlight the ingredients’ subtle flavours rather than overpowering them with over-complicated combinations. The pasta here at this Nottingham restaurant is a dream for fans of Italian cuisine, with favourites including the ravioli with spinach and ricotta cheese, the tagliatelle carbonara and the linguine piccanti al granchio, linguine pasta cooked with crab meat, fresh chillies, cherry tomatoes, parsley, spring onions and lemon zest.

I have been here a couple of times recently, and have always had a good experience, this last time was definitely the best. We were seen straight away, the food came out quickly, got free glasses of prosecco as per the Mother’s Day offer and the food was fantastic. Brilliant service and will definitely be returning without a doubt!
The meal was amazing really nice and I would come again and tell Friends and family They didn’t rush us which was nice had time to eat and talk and The whole please was clam and relax
We had fillet steak, they were cooked to perfection and we didn’t have to wait too long. Very convenient booking system, good decor and lovely music
Excellent meal, me and my husband had a lovely time,staff were lovely, happy and polite. I would recommend Bella Mia to my family and friends
30th Birthday Meal. I've eaten here a number of times and I've always had a great experience. I decided to hold my Partners 30th Birthday meal here (party of 13). Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who put 30th banners on the tables before we arrived, and arranged to bring out the cake we supplied, whilst also providing us with side plates so that we could dish the cake out to everybody in our party. The food was fab as always and everybody said how they enjoyed their time at Bella Mia.
The food was absolutely delicious - three of us had three courses each and enjoyed all the dishes. The staff were really friendly and efficient. The restaurant itself provided a very pleasant environment, with tasteful décor and a good ambience, even though we went on a quiet Thursday evening. The prices were quite reasonable for a meal of this type and quality. This was our first visit, but we will definitely return, and would certainly recommend Bella Mia, as the whole experience was very enjoyable.
Food tasty and very generous portions. However, the service was very poor. Very slow and not friendly or welcoming. They didn't do smiling! We had to ask three times before we finally got water for the table. They brought me the wrong main course. I pointed this out to the waiter who delivered it to our table. He was joined by another waiter and the two of them both said that they had delivered what had been ordered. I couldn't believe they were questioning me! They took it away with no apology. To add insult to injury, the waitress that originally took the order came over and just about managed a reluctant apology. She said my main meal would not be charged , which is fair enough. She then had the cheek to say she was sure I'd ordered what she'd written down(ie I was wrong, not her!!!!) From then on, she was even more surly and inattentive than before. We were made to feel like we'd done something wrong. It left a bit of a sour taste and made us feel unconfortable. With decent waiting staff, it could have been a good night out.
We were offered a choice of tables on arrival and service was quick without being hurried. The food was good when it arrived but I would have preferred the plates to be warm which was the only downside to the whole experience in Bella Mia. We have been here before and would not hesitate to return.
I have been going to Bella Mia for years and always had a fantastic meal. Today had the ribs as a starter and to be honest they were not falling off the bone as they usually are, in my opinion were not cooked enough. However, this will not put me off as you can't expect perfection all the time :-)
We all had a great time at Bella Mia - the staff were very friendly and welcoming! The service was excellent and if we weren't completely satisfied with our food they were happy to rectify it straight away! We'll definitely be returning there soon - thank you 😀
