Pizza Hut pizza and sides selection

Pizza Hut.

At tastecard, we love pizza and, hopefully, you do too. If you do, you should take the family down to Pizza Hut at ​​Cardiff Queen Street. Whether you’re a pepperoni pizza kind of person or you prefer veggie toppings, there’s plenty of choice at the Hut. Pizza Hut is passionate about pizza and delivers a wide range of bases, from deep pan and the All-American thin to the skinny 600-calorie pizza, all lovingly topped with fresh ingredients. Also, you can’t overlook the unlimited free salad bar with every order!

Bella Italia Cheesy Garlic Bread

Bella Italia.

If you’re looking for Bella Italia deals, then you’ve come to the right place. Cardiff has a beautiful Bella Italia restaurant in Cardiff Bay in the Red Dragon Centre. After a full day of socialising with friends, and possibly even a movie at the local ODEON, you could chill out with some marvellous Mediterranean food.

You’ll find the true spirit of Italy in a dish that’s lovingly made at Bella Italia, from creamy carbonara and cured meats on the Antipasti Sharing Board, to the fiery Diavola Forte Roma pizza. Oh, and you can't beat a cheesy garlic bread.


The final entry on our list of the best Italian restaurants in Cardiff is Prezzo in St. David’s Shopping Centre. Spend all day shopping and then finish off the perfect day with a delicious meal at Prezzo. Prezzo is a family favourite and has been feeding people up and down the country for more than 20 years. So, if you want a taste of authentic Italian food, take a trip to St. David’s Shopping Centre in Cardiff.

The feel-good food at Prezzo, like the creamy carbonara topped with crispy prosciutto, slow-braised spaghetti bolognese, or any of their pizzas, is cooked to perfection. Finish the meal off in style with the classic sticky toffee pudding or the creamy vanilla honeycomb smashed cheesecake.
