Answer:     Some people recite Bismillah loudly while eating.  I want to know whether we should recite it softly or loudly.

As far as "Awraad" (invocations/prayers) are considered, they should be recited softly.  If other people are heedless about reciting Bismillah, then to remind them, reciting it loudly better.  

It is given in Fatawa A'alamgiri, Vol. 5, Pg. No: 337:

Translation: When you recite Bismillah, raise your voice, so that those who are along with you are reminded of it.

And Allah Most High knows best.
