On Mooloolaba's Esplanade at Pacific Beach Resort lies an authentic (and cheesy) slice of Italy. Welcome to Bella Venezia.

Standing tall for over 36 years, it's a favourite with locals and visitors alike. You'll find yourself irresistibly drawn to its warmth and vintage glamour. Walk-in and you're serenaded by some seriously bougie velvet chairs that wouldn't be out of place in a royal household. If you'd prefer to keep it (literally) breezy, perch yourself on the patio, bedazzled by trees dripping with fairy lights. Romantic much?

With so much deliciousness to choose from, you'll be spending a fair while just pursuing the menu! Make it a leisurely evening and order in some small plates to share. There's everything from Coffin Bay oysters to cured ocean trout, crispy skin pork belly and an array of cured meats, pickles and freshly-made bread.

But remember to leave some room, especially if you plan on tackling a pizza. You have all the classics there as well as a seafood pizza that is truly brimming with all kinds of fruits of the sea. Alternatively, go really classic with lamb porchetta that comes with a tantalisingly sweet parsnip puree or the 16 hours braised beef cheek that practically melts on the tongue. And there's an entire menu dedicated to vegans... vegan cheese and all! Live that cruisy Italian life!

The food, the service, the ambiance. All sensational. For the food we started with the Coffin Bay oysters (Kilpatrick and the Chilli & Ginger). Best ever. Also tried the Oyster shots. Outstanding!! Ended up having 3 of them.
Mains we had Spanner Crab Ravioli (which my wife said was better than you know what!) I had the Linguine followed by the deserts of Creme Brulee and a Tiramisu that will shorten your life expectancy. It was that good.
The service our waiter Naomi was very friendly and attentive. Couldn't have asked for more from Bella Venezia.

Our first visit to Bella Venezia and we weren’t disappointed. The food was absolutely superb and the service, from Naomi, was even better.

Probably the best Italian restaurant we’ve visited in Australia. We will be back.

Went here for our anniversary, specifically for their vegan menu. The food was amazing. We had the homemade bread, bruschetta, mushroom risotto and veggie pizza with vegan cheese. We couldn't fault one thing. Will be going back.

Table of three who shared several course:
Arancini balls: delicious, the sauce was incredibly flavoursome.
Scallops: unfortunately didn’t quite hit the mark - the granita just tasted like shaved ice with no distinguishable flavour.
Tortellini: the pasta was a bit too chewy for our liking and the sauce drizzled over the plate was not flavoursome.
Gnocchi: absolutely delicious, appropriate size. The gnocchi were crispy but also pillowy and the mushrooms/truffle enhanced the flavours!
Beef cheeks: just fell apart and was quite a large serving! The capsicum on top were a great addition.
Lamb porchetta: the stuffing was delicious and the parsnip purée was a real winner.
Pizzas: yummy as well, although a little smaller than I’d have anticipated for price point.
Service was friendly, if a little slow at time’s, particularly when there wasn’t a large number of guests at the time we dined.
A good option for first table diners.
