Our Story

‘Fratello & sorella’, that means brother and sister in Italian! Hugh and Caroline  are the brother and sister team behind Bella Italia, celebrating 30 years in 2020. Early inspiration came from their  Dad, Hugh Snr, who had a treasure trove of favourite, secret recipes that were eagerly tried and tested at home. Inspired by this, Caroline went on to classically train as a chef in Sardinia where Italian food became her real passion. We are a family business through and through. Even from Behind the scenes, Caroline’s husband Anton is director of finance, and her daughter, Clara, is running front-of-house. Over the years many of our extended family have played a part in building the business, with many of our team working with us nearly 20 years. As the saying in Italy goes “La Famiglia e Tutto”, and we live by this motto at Bella Italia.

In July 2017 we added the next chapter in our story and opened a second unit in Castletroy. We are overwhelmed with the support we have received from the local community. And hope we have another 30 years as great as the last 30.

Italian food starts with family and its simplicity allows quality ingredients to speak for themselves. We attribute the strength of our Bella Italia recipe to unfailing family and loyal customer support over the years.

All our fresh pasta and sauces are made in-house every day, the old-fashioned way, with love and attention to detail. Simple ingredients creating beautiful authentic food. This is part of who we are and what we value.

From our family to yours, buon appetito!

Grazie,
