History has it that in 1889, the humble Napalese street food creation known as pizza, first found its way into the royal wood-fired oven, when pizza maestro Raffaele Esposito made one to present to Queen Margherita. His delicious creation honoured the tricalore flag of Italy with his creative use of tomato, basil and mozzarella.
At Casa Bella, we honour pizza by staying true to the original tradition underscored in this anecdote: Our pizzas bases are hand-pressed to every order, using imported Italian ‘OO’ flour, topped with only the finest and freshest ingredients, lavishly layered with mozzarella, and then finessed in our signature wood-fired oven until crisp and feather-like. You can visit Naples if you like, or you can feast on our Italian-inspired, glorious gastronomic pizza varietals. We think you’ll choose the latter! Buon Appetito!
Naples may be renowned for its pizza, but its pasta traditions deserve pride of culinary place too. Once again we turn to this coastal city dramatically nestled next to a formerly active Volcano for our pasta inspiration.
True to Italian tradition, we use only 100% Durum wheat to make our pasta fresh on our premises daily to give our customer the best quality product possible, we then cook it until divinely al dente to ensure the smoothest of pastas. From the much-loved Lasagne or Bolognese to our gloriously creamy Gorgonzola Gnocchi, enjoy matchlessly delizioso mouthfuls of Casa Bella pasta, the most comforting of foods!
Our A-grade beef steaks are premium-sourced, skillfully cut and then carefully aged in our cold rooms. We grill, flambé, braise or sauté our specially selected cuts, and all are calibrated for superior succulence and flavour. Our slow-braised Oxtail and Lamb Shank dishes have proven to be perennial highlights, with patrons often returning back ‘home’ to Casa Bella to request these magnifico menu favourites!
Our true-to-tradition Italian grigliata items are unfettered, unfussed, fantastically fire-infused affairs: exactly as the Italians would have it! Expect simple but true-to-essence, robust flavour profiles, beginning with an on-point rub that always features that most quintessential of revered Italian ingredients: extra virgin olive oil, Maldon salt, piquant black peppercorns and our secret herb selection enhance this ‘pure’, rustic form of grilling. Expect exquisitely seared, uncomplicated flavours – così grande!
‘First we eat, then we do everything else’. No gathering or visit in Italy can take place in the absence of a delectably gratifying meal, creatively crafted from the best ingredients the many local markets have to offer. So, too, it is in our beautiful home, Casa Bella.Read More
Many of the restaurants at Sun Central serve burgers,chips etc so it’s nice to get away from that with tasty Italian food. Good salads too.
They had me at Hello! The staff are friendly, very helpful, being attentive to my every need. The manager is also cool/supportive helping his staff out now and again.
Now on to the important part, the Food! Every single person that I have taken to Casa Bella, has returned. From their starters to their main courses and desserts, all of their food is good. My personal favourites are the fritters that we get on the table on arrival, the steak medium raw of course, the pizza’s, I love all of their pizzas, I have tried each one and the banoffee pie for dessert. I also have a loyalty card which I use frequently because Casa Bella is worth it. Meals are not expensive average price, what adds up is that you will not just order one thing, you will want more. The booths and restaurant as a whole are clean. The waiters are dressed fancy, the look is modern and inviting. I love Casa Bella dearly. Visit them, you will not be disappointed.
My partner and I hadn’t been to Monte Casino for a good long while and found Casa Bella where another Italian restaurant used to be. We decided to try it out and, wow, I’m so glad we did. The menu makes everything sound delicious and it’s even better when it arrives. The wine menu is extensive and even makes pairing suggestions. (Don’t tell anyone but I bought a bottle of the house blend to take home). From the salad, to the pizza to the side dishes (try the baked sweet potato) everything was outstanding and complemented by fantastic service. We have now been 3 times and every time has been a great experience.
I don’t normally post reviews but my dinner today at Casa Bella was truly so amazing. Everything from the greeting at the door to the amazing wood fired pizza everything is just so tasty and waiters and managers so friendly. Also had a cheesecake for dessert which was mind blowing. Thank you Casa Bella will be back for sure.
Had a brilliant evening with great food, friends and vibe, magaritas were great! We were celebrating a birthday and the management and staff made it really special for us. Will definitely be back again 🙂
I enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff were polite and very friendly. The food was amazing! Definitely going back
