Another dreadful Bella Italia meal. Waiting staff rushed off their feet, a defective ordering process, a two hour wait for awful food, an obnoxious manager. Save yourself time and money. Dine somewhere else.

We stopped here with my friend late at night (10pm) to have some food after sightseeing Central London. The place has warm atmosphere and good staff. Food is great - reminding me about my time in Rome and you can also drink good quality beer. Recommended stop on your bucket list.

The pizza is awful, had to send back the first one as it was undercooked. Received the next one and it was burnt!! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Received -25% off the bill but still a waist of money, never again!

I have visited several Bella Italia restaurants around London over the last few years and they are always great; this visit was no different. I was by myself as I was over for business. They treat you with respect, great customer service and very efficient. It's a great central location and very comfortable. The food is good quality for a... More

Description
Boasting an enviable location in the very centre of Leicester Square, surrounded by some of the capital's biggest cinemas, Bella Italia is a haven for visitors to the area who are looking for an affordable yet good quality meal. With Piccadilly Circus, Soho and Covent Garden at its fingertips, this popular Italian restaurant is always buzzing with hungry sightseers and shoppers.
