“Not as expensive as expected!”

Bella Italia Longleat Forest
Ranked #23 of 83 Restaurants in Warminster
Price range: US$9 - US$25
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 April 2018

On our last night at Center Parcs, we booked Bella Italia on our last evening. As a party of 11 with children and a baby, I would certainly recommend pre-booking a table even if you are a smaller party.
Considering the costs of many other things at CP, I didn't think the menu was too pricey, and the children's menu was good too. Having a hungry 9 year old who can eat adult portions, they have different size menus for children which is a great touch.
We had a couple of minor issues including requesting jugs of water twice and we had asked for extra beers which never appeared.
The highlight of the evening was the very kind gentleman serving the children ice cream at the dessert cart and he generously gave my nephew an extra topping because he was so polite. Things like this go a long long way! I would certainly return.

Really like the setting of Bella Italia at Centre Parc, set above the main entrance to the hub. Nice large restaurant with friendly staff. Good menu choice for children and adult. My Pollo Arrosto was well presented and very tasty, combining a half roast chicken with roast potatoes, pepper, onion and courgette. Perfect for our Sunday lunch.

Very impressed with our meal; much that could have gone wrong didn't! I say this because this Bella Italia is at Center Parcs, so has - to some extent - a captive audience. Prices seem about usual for the chain. The menu has adult and children's portions - pizzas, pasta and some meats. We had booked a table for 17:45, so there were lots of other families. There wasn't that 'soft play area clamour' that has, for me, taken the shine off many similar occasions. This may be because all the children in our vicinity were exemplars of good behaviour, but for a large restaurant, the acoustics are good (no echoing, no scraping of chairs on the floor) and crayons and activity pads were provided. Our waiter was attentive and made an effort to be welcoming. Unfortunately, the only draught lager was off, so I had to pay through the nose for small bottles of Stella. My wife tried the recommended Italian cider, which was smooth, as promised, and tasted of elderflower. Cider for people who don't like cider. Our antipasti to share were tasty, well-presented and plentiful. The children's garlic bread starters were also well-received. For mains, our party chose a mixture of pizza and pasta dishes and we were all very pleased with them. The bases of the 'Roma' style pizzas were excellent, and my pizza lived up to its promise of being spicy - it's a frequent gripe of mine when dishes don't deliver as advertised in this area, so that left a very good impression. Portions were generous - we couldn't finish everything, and we accepted our waiter's offer of packaging the excess to take away with us. Our children shared a pudding, which they loved. We were too full for a dessert, so contented ourselves with espressos and accompanying Limoncello liquers. The espresso was a bit unusual, in that it came in a large cup and had quite a thin mouth-feel, making it more like strong 'ordinary' coffee. It was nice, though - just not what I'd normally expect. Top marks for the pace of service throughout the meal - food arrived fairly quickly, but at no point were we rushed, or made to feel that our table was needed - even though the restaurant was filling up as afternoon turned into evening.

This is our first visit to Centre Parcs in Longleat, we usually visit Woburn, so I thought I would book a few activities that are not available in Woburn. I booked the Pizza Making Party for my children, both my son and daughter absolutely loved it. I would highly recommend. Jane was fantastic with the children .. very patient and they really enjoyed chatting and making the pizzas with Jane. Thank You Jane ! Also my little girl wants to thank the chefs for preparing the dough and toppings
