ONE of Cardiff’s best-loved restaurants is back in business at The Red Dragon Centre and ready to show off its new look after a busy summer refurbishing. One of Cardiff’s best-loved restaurants has opened its doors after an extensive summer refurbishment, bringing a true taste of Italy to The Red Dragon Centre.
After 14 years at Cardiff Bay’s premier entertainment destination, Bella Italia has undergone a transformation resulting in an atmosphere that aligns with the traditional Italian cuisine of Bella Italia.
Over £175,000 was spent on the restaurant’s make-over. With such a significant investment, Bella Italia was able to create a little piece of Italy at the entertainment centre.
Mark Griffith, General Manager of Bella Italia said: “I was absolutely mesmerised when I first saw the finished restaurant in, it looks completely new. I’m really impressed with the Italian touch that has been added. It’s created a great atmosphere and I’m looking forward to welcoming customers to wine and dine them in true Italian style.”
The refurbishment comes at an ideal time, as Bella Italia recently launched its ‘Aperitivo Hour’ menu. This new pre-dinner menu celebrates the Italian way with some small bites and a drink after a busy day. Customers can enjoy a complimentary antipasti platter with any two cocktails at the refurbished Bella Italia daily between 3pm and 6pm.
Emma Constantinou, Marketing Manager for The Red Dragon Centre said: “We value our visitors’ experiences at The Red Dragon Centre and want to make sure that everyone can enjoy some down-time at the restaurants at our entertainment centre.
“Many families come to Bella Italia for its family-friendly atmosphere. It’s lovely to see that Bella Italia wants to give its customers a true taste of Italy and offer a new look that replicates the well-loved Italian atmosphere that so many admire.”
As well as entertainment venues like Ten Pin Bowling and Odeon Cinema, The Red Dragon Centre houses an additional eight restaurants and cafes in which visitors to The Centre can relax after an eventful evening. From Asian to Italian cuisine, The Centre offers something for everyone.
