In the short amount of time that we sat waiting for our food at Bella Italia Restaurant, I saw quite a few boxes of pizza come out of the kitchen ready for delivery. And still, in no time, our Italian food was out – two pizzas, lasagna and shrimp pasta. The cook is a fast one at Bella Italia and people are loving this aspect of the restaurant; and their food is great too!
Bella Italia offers great new options for pizza lovers in San Pedro, having different pizza styles that are delicious, plus they come out faster than most pizza places in town. Browsing through Bella Italia’s menu you find pizza options like Salsiccia Pizza (tomato, mozzarella & Italian sausage); Carbonara Pizza (mozzarella, parmesan, bacon & eggs); Esotica Pizza (ham, mozzarella, tomato & pineapple) and Margherita Pizza (tomato, mozzarella & oregano), plus the popular favorites like Meat Lovers, Supreme, Shrimp, Veggie and Pepperoni.
The dining environment at Bella Italia is very casual, but it’s not only a pizzeria that you are walking into. It’s an Italian restaurant on the island with a menu options that include Penne ala Bolognese, Pasta al Broccoli, Pasta Shrimp, Summer Pasta, Lasagna, Fettuccini Carbonara and (spaghetti) Amatriciana. They are hearty dishes filled with flavor that you can get for both lunch and dinner.
Our pizzas were prepared in no time; we ordered the Supreme Pizza that has tomato, mozzarella, veggies, pepperoni and ham and the Meat Lover Pizza that carries pepperoni, ham, sausage and Italian sausage. The crust is not too thick and not too thin, nice and cheesy. The lasagna was very rich as well with lots of meat, tomato sauce, fresh pasta and béchamel sauce. Other options include crepes, Italian piada, salads, shrimp ceviche, sandwiches, burgers and quesadillas.
Pizza deliveries head out the door in cycles, people drop in to have a drink at the bar while they wait for their take-out orders and families march into Bella Italia to enjoy delicious food together. The restaurant is a great addition to the island’s variety of food; Bella Italia surely delivers.
