La Bengal Italia

la bella restaurant setting

We recently had the luck to discover La Bella an Italian restaurant in Lees, Oldham in the premises formerly Ho Ho’s chinese and had a very nice meal. We had a starter of Garlic Bread with chillies, mixed vegetable nibbles and salad plus mixed seafood nibbles. The main course was Vegetable Risotto and Chicken. All was very nice, fresh, flavourful and cleanly and invitingly presented in contemporary style.The restaurant itself is furnished in a clean modernish but comfortable style.

We asked some other diners who also seemed to be enjoying themselves for their opinion and they commented on the quality of the food and the friendly staff. They were initially surprised – as we were-  to discover that the chef and staff were Bangladeshi which just goes to shows that you don’t have to be Italian to cook proper Italian food.
