Charmingly unique, Bellaria Restaurant and Wine Bar in Fitzrovia is a must for those tired of the same typical Italian dining experience.
From street level Bellaria looks like a simple Italian restaurant with a welcoming atmosphere. The best seats in the house are by the wide windows where you can sit and watch the world go by.
However, a few steps below and guests are transported to a whole other world. Bellaria’s basement is straight out of a fairytale – its bare stone walls, with their arches, nooks and crannies complemented by chandeliers, mirrors, and low lighting, enhance the atmospheric ambience. It is the ideal setting for romance and a real surprise to everyone who discovers it.
Sophisticated and contemporary, our menu makes good use of authentic Italian ingredients to produce elegant and creative dishes ranging from pastas and risottos to steaks and fish. To complement our delicious food we have created a long list of excellent wines.

Ambience, service and wine were great. Food was average, my lobster linguine was oily and even with a discount it felt like i was overpaying for what i was getting.

Fine restaurant and very friendly staff ... however this is the 3rd time in a row where they have not applied any Toptable offers on the final bill. They rely on people flagging this up which most people may be uncomfortable doing. Given that this happens frequently am wondering if this is some sort of management tactic ... shame because everything else is great

We opted for the outdoor seating, as would seem advisable in the circumstances. Somewhat surprisingly the staff did not wear masks, but they were very attentive and the service itself was excellent. We lingered far longer than we might have—nearly four hours in all; at no point did the staff try to encourage us to leave, and they even put the outdoor heater on when it began to get chilly.

The bruschetta and pan roasted salmon were both excellent; the pan-fried chicken Milanese was nearly perfect, marred only by being ever so slightly more charred than I would have preferred.

Compared to the standard noisy London restaurants, this was quiet which meant a lot to me. The service was excellent - the staff were friendly, pleasant and had a great sense of humour, they were very cheerful and joked about with us which was nice. The food was delicious: top-quality food and it was just about the right amount - not too much and not too little. The restaurant is located in a lovely part of the city and the underground floor is stunning with a beautiful, authentic, win cellar feel to it with atmospheric lighting, creating a nice romantic feel to it. Perfect to take your date there. The wine was also very nice. I'll definitely go back again as there were quite a few dishes I like to try, but of course, you can't have everything in one meal! Thank you for a wonderful experience. I really enjoyed it!

Lovely restaurant, perfect for date night. Service was quick and attentive, the lighting, setting and decor was just right, and the menu had a fairly wide selection of options and was well priced.

The highlight was the main courses (homemade pasta was amazing) of Spinach & Feta Ravioli, and Beef Ragu Tagliatelle.

Starters of Brushetta (good - needed to be a little more crisp) and Baked Aubergine (very good) and desserts of Tiramisu (good - a little too creamy) and Lemon Cheescake (good - needed more lemon tang).

Would very much recommend.

Great experience. We were a group of 5.

Staff was very lovely and helpful.

They recently refurbished the restaurant, so everything is in top condition and looks very cosy.

Wide range of wines and large menu. Even though the menu is large, everything was fresh. Excellent chef!

Will definitely come back here!

The service was great. staff were professional and friendly. The food was great especially the starters mixed seafood platter which was very impressive - highly recommended. The wine however was poor quality and expensive (£51) for what seemed like cheap wine.

In these testing times during Covid, Bellaria was fantastic. Everything was regularly sanitised, people were seated far enough away from each other (which also helps noise level). Food & wine recommendations were perfect and the waiting staff were jovial and entertaining. Fantastic experience we will be back!

I have been to this restaurant several times, and I keep wanting to go back.
I have lived in Italy and would definitely say that this restaurant is authentic, and a taste of northern Italy in London. It's not particularly cheap compared to some other restaurants, but definitely affordable, and totally worth it. The dishes are fresh, well-presented, and they taste absolutely lovely (the black pasta with sea food is particularly nice). The decor is quite smart but relaxed, the atmosphere's great, the staff are friendly and the wine list is very nice too - definitely a place to go to to enjoy good food and drink in nice surroundings!
