I've always liked it here. Family run, busy and friendly restaurant with a large menu and good food. Always crowded and hot but worthwhile for food and atmosphere. I ate from the specials menu and did very well. Great with a big work group.

I ate there twice during my recent London visit. I thought the food was good and the prices (for London) were reasonable. Reservations are recommended. Service was good.

Ciao Bella is a proper neighbourhood restaurant that stays open late most nights of the week. The pasta is great, especially the seafood dish that comes in a paper bag. The pizzas are also very good. Ciao Bella!

We went on a Wednesday evening and it was packed - we were lucky we'd booked. We were sat elbow to elbow with other diners at a long table - so don't visit if your conversation is private! We could barely hear the pianist though...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
