Bella Cucina Italian Queenstown

Bella Cucina showcases the delight of simple fresh flavours.


The kitchen team at Bella Cucina is lead by Co-Owner Martin James and his international team of chef’s.

The menu style is based on the Italian philosophy of keeping dishes simple with three to four flavours maximum. The menu changes every day with dishes chosen according to what’s in season. Pasta and breads are made each morning and together with market fresh ingredients form the lunch and dinner menus. Only the freshest possible ingredients are used and they speak for themselves.

Organic vegetables and greens are handpicked daily, local spicy sausages are used to enhance dishes, wild rabbit, hare and Southland lamb are slow cooked in the wood-fired oven. These, together with excellent imported salami, buffalo mozzarella and quality oils produce fresh flavoursome dishes.

Bella is designed to be enjoyed often and the menu is priced accordingly.

Anitpasti from $6 to $16, Wood-fired Pizzas from $22 to $26, Pasta and Risottos from $22 to $25 and Hearty Main dishes for around $30.  Leave room for the wicked Tiramisu at $12




Bella Cucina, 6 Brecon Street is open every day for dinner from 5pm until late.
