You’ll find an ever-expanding range of vegan options at Bella Italia, from soups and bruschetta as a starter to some rich and satisfying main meals. True, the pizzas do not yet come with vegan cheese, nor is there a dessert, but the Lenticchie (lentil and mushroom ragu with spaghetti) is hearty and delicious and the new mushroom risotto is well worth trying. Also new is the Verde Burger made with cannelini beans and Italian herbs. With salads and sides, you’ll be well fed here.
New! For vegans who may have over-indulged at Christmas, Bella Italia is launching Less is Amore - a lower calorie menu with three vegan choices: Spiralised Vegetable Pomodoro, Spiralised Vegetable Lenticchie and Aubergine Parmigiana.
