Lunch @ Bella Italia, Aberdeen, Scotland

After spending the morning down at Doonies Farm, we took a drove down to Aberdeen Beach and then to Queens Link Leisure Park for lunch.

Since the kids were craving pizza, we decided to try Bella Italia. Furthermore, they were offering a great lunch deal (one course for £6.99 or two course for £9.49) and an even better deal for kids (from the Kids Menu £7.95 for 3 courses plus drink).  We had a huge breakfast earlier in the morning,  so we opted for one 2-course meal and one kids meal and there was plenty to go around.

For the adults, we went for the Calamari, tender squid coated in a light batter served with garlic mayonnaise. It was delicious; hot, light and crispy.

For our mains, we could choose between pizza, calzone, pasta, piadina (folded Italian flatbread sandwiches) or salads. We went for the Pepperoni Piccante, a thin crust pizza with generous toppings of Italian pepperoni, green chilli and mozzarella. The chilli definitely gave it a spicy kick. The pizza was well-made so I definitely enjoyed it.

For the kids, they started off with a mocktail called the Pink OJ which is basically orange juice and blackcurrant cordial served on the side. The kids get to pour in the cordial themselves and watch the colour change, so that's some cool interactive dining for them. Before long, their starter of Cheesy Garlic Bread aka flatbread with oozy garlic butter and mozzarella cheese arrives. The bread was soft, warm and smelt absolutely lovely.

The kids had the Margarita Pizza and they polished the whole thing off between the two of them. And finally for dessert, they get to choose a scoop of gelato, from various flavours displayed at the gelato cart. The gelato comes from Pippo Callipo from Pizzo in Italy. Rich and creamy, this definitely was a lovely end to our meal here.

Service was good. The portions were just nice for us for a light lunch and considering we paid under £20, I would say it's excellent value for money.
