Bella Italia Weine, Stuttgart

 

By LAWRENCE TAN

Experience the warmth of Sicily and the best of Italian wine
in this wine store cum restaurant in Stuttgart, Germany. Occupying the ground
floor of a five-story brickhouse in rustic Wilhelminian style, Bella Italia
Weine does not give much away from the outside.

But step inside the restaurant,
and you will be overwhelmed by the multitudes of your own reflections looking
back at you from the more than 90 different mirrors on the ceiling. If only the
wicked Queen from Snow White had known of Bella’s existence.

German architects
Gunter Fleitz and Peter Ippolito from the Ippolito Fleitz Group designed the
restaurant’s eccentric interiors. For a few years, Bella’s owner Maria Patané has run her wine boutique and
restaurant from a small living-room-like dwelling, and only moved here in 2007
because she ran out of space.

The restaurant serves home-style Italian cuisine
paired with a variety of wines directly imported from exclusive producers in
Italy.
