From the moment you step through our door, you will feel like you are in Italy.

A unique combination of a restaurant, café, and retail shop. La Bella Italia in Petone, Wellington, was born from director, Antonio Cacace’s passion to share with the beauty of traditional, authentic Italian products and cuisine with Kiwis. We provide the best quality to fit your dietary needs with a wide range of gluten-free dishes, delicious pasta, and rich risottos, as well as a wide selection of meats.
