I visited Bella Italia for dinner but the food was average or no taste. I did not feel that its is special or really Italian.

I am very picky about my salmon, order the salmon salad, and it was perfect! Just the way I like it, juicy and pink on the inside, not overcooked, as it happens so often. Well done, Bella Italia, and thank you! Lovely service too!

Waited 1 1/2 hour and our dinner never came. They were totally overwhelmed by the number of customers having dinner before the 7:30 theater show.

We had been to the National Gallery and had to find somewhere which allowed us to have an early meal before catching our respective trains back to different parts of the country.

We enjoyed a spaghetti carbonara and pizzas, with a pleasant house red, just rounded the evening off well before returning to Croydon.

It was packed when we walked in and the upstairs was not open at the time. A bit crowded and stuffy at first impression because all tables were full and we had to wait on the steps for one to open up. Being in London we didn't know what to think of the Italian but it was actually very good.... More

Had an amazing night at bella Italia Leicester Square. We had a theatre booking and our lovely waiter bogdan made an outstanding service to make sure everything came out on time without any delay. The food was freshly made and enjoyed every bite I had. Lovely place. I would definitely come back again.

Went here for a pre theatre dinner on New Years Eve. Needed to book as fairly busy. Friendly welcome by waitress who showed us to our table at the back of the restaurant. Good choice of drinks. Do try the prosecco and limoncello !! Excellent food menu with typical Italian food. Reasonable cost and no hurry for us to finish... More
