If any of you live in or around the Reading, Berkshire area I just wanted to let you know of the Bella Italia resaurant on the Oracle Riverside area.
My husband and I were looking for somewhere to eat in Reading and we at first tried Nando's on the Riverside area as I had heard they do GF food. Here the GF menu was limited to chicken, chicken and oh, more chicken! (Actually not STRICTLY true, there were a couple of steaks and salads). The manager and staff were brilliant and tried to suggest ways round this but the fact of the matter was, there was poor GF choices on the menu.
We decided to leave Nando's and tried a couple of other nearby resaurants and upon enquiring "do you do GF food?". We were met with blank stares and one offered the ubiquitous salad.
I was beginning to despair. Until we tried BELLA ITALIA (in capitals because I want to shout about it!).
"GF food?". We tentatively asked. "Of course!" came the cheery reply. We dared to hope it was more than salad!
We were astounded to be given a FULL GF menu!!! Heaven! The food was brilliant, the service was excellent and prices were exactly the same as the "normal" menu.
We WILL be back. Up to now it's my fave place to eat.
I'm aware some of you may know BI do GF food but I didn't!
Anyway, I've provided a link below to their website and the GF menu if anyone is interested.
