Fodor's Review

Pizza- and pasta-maker Guisseppe Scorce re-created a little piece of Italia here in central Tauranga in 1978 and has been going strong ever since. The decor is classic Italian, with red-and-white checked tablecloths and grapes hanging from the ceiling, and the pasta is homemade—the tortellini is prepared every afternoon—and the flavorful pizzas are thin-crusted. Be sure to leave room for dessert—Bella Mia makes its own gelato, sorbets, and tiramisu. They only open for dinner during winter but if you're keen for lunch (and it's not Sunday, and there's more than two of you), just give them a call the night before and they'll open up.
