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.

I've been going to Bellaria and it's now historic sister Bacco for a number of years. The food is always good and the service is always excellent. The prices offer great value if you opt for the special deals that they run which give 50% discounts on many (not all) starters and mains. The house wine is good enough, too! I took six friends and we will be going back next time we meet up.

Bellaria is one of my favourite italian restaurants in London. Small but intimate, authentic. A good selection of Italian favourites on the menu a respectable wine list, including by the glass. I had a parmigiana for as a starter, which was very good although I felt the aubergine and cheese were a little drowned in the sauce, albeit a well balanced, fresh tomato sauce. A very fresh fish dish for main, then an exceptionally good dark chocolate freddo, which they list as a chocolate mousse. Service was efficient, although bordering on a little too keen to get our next order at times. Highly recommend.

We have been going to Bellaria for years. It is our go to place when we want great Italian food, drinks and service. Nice atmosphere, always consistent. Varied menu and don't be afraid to ask for old favourites like the rack of veal dish which is to spoil yourself with.
All the menu items are excellent and the prices are fair for the quality and portions. Scores of meals and we were never disappointed.

Bellaria Restaurant is the only place in the area to get really fresh, authentic Italian food. The food is phenomenal and so is the service. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and everything is delicious- from the drinks to the entrees to the homemade desserts. I highly recommend Bellaria!

A lovely restaurant with good service and mediocre food. The soup was bland. The seafood ravioli was -- underdone? Pasty? Bland, with not much seafood taste. There are much better places in the neighborhood.

Had an excellent meal with my family. Service was excellent and all pasta dishes were well appreciated. We ate on the street level floor but there is a downstairs that looked more like the photos on their website. We had no issue with the first floor - great overall experience!

Fantastic restaurant. Lovely romantic dining area downstairs. The service was the right balance of attentiveness without being overbearing. They even gave us a Grappa at the end for free! Good selection of wines and we found a really nice crisp and dry bottle (forget the name) with a little assistance.

What can I say? Astonishing could give an idea. Cosy and warm ambient, the service is so nice and friendly, just perfec! The wine selection is so broad, we went for an amazing, rich and bodied Chianti. Win! The food is absolutely fantastic. The beef Carpaccio is so tasty and juicy, the seabream absolutely yummy. Anything else? The complimentary limoncello at the end is the perfect finish for a proper class Italian cuisine experience in central London ! Thanks guys! 5 stars experience! ;)

Seems very good value with the Open Table offer. Good service and excellent food. However restaurant adds excessive charges that are not on menu e.g.£3 for bread; £3 for a few olives which makes the value of the offer much less appealing. However a nice restaurant that seems always busy, which is a good sign.

Lovely restaurant, we ate in the 1st floor dining room. It got busy by 1pm on the Sunday we were there, you can see it was popular with family groups. The food and wine we spot on, we both had a seafood pasta and there was no complaints...I would be happy to return.

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 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!
