Pizzeria Bella Notte

For the current menu, see here.

I absolutely love Bella Notte, for a whole multitude of reasons; the portions are great, the food is delicious, the location is brilliant, and the prices are wonderful!

Bella Notte is a counter service restaurant, with three set menus plus a kid’s menu. As far as I’m aware, there is not an A La Carte menu at present. Menu 1 (12,99€) is pasta, a side and a drink, Menu 2 (13,99€) is lasagne, a side, a dessert and a drink, and Menu 3 (14,99€) is a pizza, a side, a dessert and a drink.

The pasta is delicious; either Neapolitan or Bolognese. I had the Neapolitan and it was yummy – it didn’t taste artificial or like it had been sitting around for ages and was piping hot. My only gripe was that my sauce was on top of the pasta and mixing it through in the little box was a pain.

The pizzas are my go-to; big enough to share, or great if you’ve got a late dinner reservation and need to keep yourself going all afternoon. Both the Royale and 3-cheese are delicious, loaded with cheese, and the ham on the Royale is so nice – thick and yummy, not watery or artificial. They’re filling and well worth the money, even more so if sharing! My only wish is that they were Mickey-shaped, like the kid’s ones are!

The sides are salad, or a large slice of garlic baguette, which I always go for! My knowledge of the desserts is limited due to my allergies, but I can definitely recommend the Greek yoghurt!

I had the Hotel Meal Plan in February, and vouchers can be used at Bella Notte. To ensure we had food for both the first and last day, the group of 4 I went with used 2 vouchers on the day we arrived, and shared pizzas, garlic bread, a dessert and drink, and saved the other 2 vouchers for our final day. I can assure you despite only having half a pizza each, we definitely did not go hungry either!

Setting

I personally think the location of Bella Notte is brilliant; it’s at the entrance to Fantasyland, so not on the edges of the Disneyland Park and can hence be reached quickly from wherever you are really. Also, it’s a brilliant place to nip into before or after the parade as it’s right at the end/start of the route (depending on which way it’s going). It is a little dark inside, the place would definitely benefit from more lighting, but the servers are efficient and I go back time and time again, so would definitely recommend it!

Allergies

Being allergic to both nuts and some fruits can make the set menu counter services a little difficult, as I can’t have the brownie, the ice cream or the fruit cup which is often the dessert on offer. At Bella Notte, I normally get Menu 3 and cannot have either dessert. On multiple occasions, I’ve explained this to the CM serving us, and they have offered any of the other desserts. The only thing I sometimes find when getting a dessert switched is that they don’t always put it through the till, and so I’ll sometimes be given the wrong dessert when I collect the food, but a quick explanation and it’s all sorted and I’ve never had an issue.
