Bella Italia - Castleford
Bella Italia's fresh and fun menu is packed with quality ingredients. From traditional classics to exciting new dishes, they satisfy big appetites and create even bigger smiles. The popular calzones are highly recommended and absolutely delicious, or try the pollo e spinaci with torn chicken breast, fresh spinach, Parmesan and mozzarella. The pepe rossi ripieni - oven-baked red pepper stuffed with creamy risotto, basil and goat's cheese - and insalata salmone e fagioli, featuring baked salmon fillet, cannellini and nero beans, baby spinach and juicy plum tomatoes, are two more favourites. Enjoy your own slice of Italy from the Abruzzo region with the bucatini al ragu d'agnello - a rich lamb and red wine ragu. And if you fancy sharing, the antipasto misto board is perfect with a chilled bottle of lambrusco reggiano. Bella Italia also offer a range of dishes under 600 calories, from salads to seafood. Try the bucatini gamberoni, succulent king prawns sautéed in garlic and chilli in a spicy pomodoro sauce, or the filleto di spigola - sea bass with a fresh herb and garlic salsa verde. Try to save room for tempting desserts such as the 'Godfather Fragola' - vanilla and strawberry ice cream, strawberry coulis, crushed meringue and fresh strawberries - or the 'Cookie Dough Lava Cake' with a melting rich chocolate middle, drizzled with caramel sauce. If you can't manage a whole dessert, opt for the pezzi di dolci - a mini chocolate or lemon torte accompanied by a fine coffee. Bella Italia can cater for any occasion, from birthdays to graduations, so give them a call to discuss booking options. Buon appetito.
