Boasting a rather humble storefront which sports the Italian colours of red, white and green, Pizza Restorante Bella Italia located off Jalan Burma does itself justice by churning out decadent authentic Italian culinary fare meant for hearty meals. With its rustically charming interior that gives off a cosy vibe, this particular Italian diner is usually packed to the brim on weekends, patronised by families and couples -young and old.
In terms of their food fare, everything on their menu screams Italian as the range of dishes they provide comes in the form of Italian pizzas, pastas, risottos, chops, steaks and last but not least, wicked tiramisu dessert. Pizza wise, each and every flatbread here is kneaded from start by hand before being tossed into a scorching wood-oven stove to be bake to crispy perfection. Tomato base is the standard here on every Neapolitan pizza under the banner of Bella Italia, and depending on what flavour you opt for, you get corresponding toppings to go with the thinly crusted pizza -etc: Marinara Pizza will entail briny seafood toppings whereas their Pepperoni Pizza will bring about a sumptuous topping of beef salami slices. Of course, what pizza is complete without the characteristic cheese topping and here at Bella Italia, they do not disappoint.
As for their pastas, the cooks behind the scenes whip up quite a storm, bringing forth upon the dining table a variety of pasta cooking styles to choose from: ala bologna, carbonara, aglio olio, and marinara, just to name a few. Those as well as lasagnas, which are also signature dishes of Bella Italia. Rice-based risottos are quite the crowd pleaser as well, with the rice of porridge-like consistency providing an alternative to those who do not want to take spaghetti. Also available for hearty consumption are succulent chicken or flaky fish chops as well as tender beef steak for those on a protein diet.
Of course, no Italian dining experience will be completed without a taste of the tiramisu dish and Bella Italia's rendition of the tiramisu -the Mascarpone Cheese; is nothing short of glorious with the smooth, creamy consistency of cheese masked with bitter coffee powder. Be sure to try it if you ever find yourself there at Bella Italia's.
