Bella Taipa prides itself on offering “modern Italian cuisine” in Macau. Located in Taipa Village, it offers lots of seating space, featuring a wide rooftop with panoramic views throughout Taipa Village. The restaurant is very sought-after by both locals and tourists looking to have a late afternoon cocktails with the sunset as background, but also by big groups of friends or families wanting to experience some Italian food.
The atmosphere can vary according to the place one chooses: romantic, casual or outgoing, there is always a corner for a date, for a large group of people or a solo dinner.
Bella Taipa serves a long list of appetizes, mains–meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan options available–and desserts for all to try out. Their cocktails and wine lists are quite vast, with options for lovers of vodka and gin, whisky and even non-alcoholic beverages. Most of them are original recipes, but they also do some classics.
Signature starters include burrata and tomato salad, prawn pie with truffles, French blue lobster salad, pan-roasted Japanese scallops on truffle sauce, among others. Mains include parma ham rocket salad and Grana Padano cheese, freshly made ravioli (with vegetarian option available), vegetable eggplant lasagna, salmon fillet, Florence-style ossobuco stew, etc.
The restaurant is open till late, ideal for couples, groups of friends or people looking to unwind over a glass of wine or a drink. Smoking is allowed on the rooftop and they are available for reservations of big and small groups as well.
Bella Taipa is located close to artsy spots such as Taipa Village Art Space, but also lots of street food eateries, including those in Rua do Cunha.
