Italian
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.

First up we really enjoyed our evening. The service was excellent and the food very good.
BUT....two things that were a little irritating.
1. What is the point of asking if we are celebrating a special occasion, in this case our 19th wedding anniversary, when there is no acknowledgement at all from the restaurant. Then rather don’t ask if we are celebrating anything when booking
2. I had specifically requested that we would get a table in the cellar as it is the real attraction of this restaurant. When we arrived they said that they were full downstairs and our table was only available upstairs.

None of the above ruined what was a good meal but they didn’t make the evening as special as it should have been.

We had a really nice evening in Bellaria restaurant on the set menu option with free-flowing prosecco. The staff were lovely, no fuss was made when we arrive a little late and our glasses were topped up throughout our time in the restaurant. There are only 3 or 4 options per course but we all had no problem choosing a dish and all enjoyed our meals.
Thank you to everyone at the restaurant

Service was excellent, food was delicious, and the atmosphere was quite comfortable. The entire dining experience was exceptional, it gets 5 stars for me. Our server’s name was Jessica and she was very helpful with ordering food and even answering questions about the nearby area for us. If I had family coming to London, I’d recommend this place.

Possibly our favourite place to eat in London. The staff members were very attentive and friendly, nothing forced. We asked for recommendations on some of the food options and they were very helpful. Most importantly, considering we had starters, mains, dessert and drinks as well, the price was fantatic. Can't recommend this place enough.

So many good things to say about Bellaria. Our waiter, he was so kind, patient, and gave us good advice, and lemoncello to end our wonderful dinner, The chef makes wonderful pasta,. We had the tagliatelle bolognese . Our secondo was the risotto with black truffles. Could not have been better. And also a wonderful tiramisu to end our perfect dinner.

A cute restaurant with a lovely basement dining area although the lighting could be a bit brighter as it was difficult to read the menu. Staff were very friendly but the service was a bit slow. The food was pretty average. Be that as it may, it had charm and on balance I would recommend it;

MMMMM....I don't like leaving unenthusiastic reviews esp when I've previously given this place 5 stars but our last visit was very disappointing. Since my last visit they have really restricted the items that you can select for the 50% off. Previously the 50% off was pretty generous although it excluded some items like steaks. The selection now is pretty poor and you are really only left with pasta choices. The service was also pretty poor. Our waitress was nice when you could catch her eye but the problem was that we couldn't and spend long periods just trying to get someones attention.
Their 50% offer used to pretty generous but they should have reduced it to 35% or less if it was nonviable and kept up the standards and the choice.

Unlimited Prosecco!

Came back to Bellaria again. Love the pre-theatre menu with unlimited prosecco. A great welcome from the lovely manager and his staff and fabulous service as usual. I had garlic bread, baby squid, Salmon and Tiramasu. It was my birthday so I had a really good time. The set menu is great but it would be lovely to see it changed from time to time. Apart from that the best Italian food in London!

Went for the prosecco and three courses deal for a friend's birthday. Food was just okay, though the squid and gnocchi were good. However, the staff were very accommodating and friendly, made sure our glasses were always topped off and sweetly brought limoncello shots for the table with the cake. We had a very good afternoon.

An absolute delicious meal. My partner chose the rib eye steak special which was cooked to perfection. I had very tasty linguine with clams. The meals were very good value. Very authentic food.
The owner very friendly and customer satisfaction. He took time to chat to us which was nice and added to the evening. The restaurant was nice and cosy. Excellent attention to detail in the food

On arriving at the restaurant we were slightly disappointed from seeing the pictures. We shared a cheese dish to start which was quite greasy. For main we had crab spaghetti which was good, and venison ravioli which was really disappointing - the pasta was so thick and chewy around the edges.

The sharing platters are amazing, great selection of cheese and meats. The wines we tried were all great and we were given a bit of info about each of them.

It’s quite informal and after giving you a bit of info on the wine completely leave you to it until you’re ready for the next one, service felt a bit slow but I think they were waiting for a signal that you wanted the next one rather than bothering people or speeding you through which was nice.

Sadly the restaurant have a few too many conditions that make the 50% off the menu offer worthwhile. It’s also not clear which main/starter is available to qualify for the offer ie that the two must be taken together from the a la carte or set menu or whatever. The garlic bread was absolutely drenched in butter- really greasy. The Sardinian small pasta with sausage, tomato and pecorino cheese was nothing to write home about - quite bland in fact. The sausage meat was scant and like bits of mince. When we questioned the incorrect bill, the waiter adjusted in grumpily. Probably best to go elsewhere as there are plenty of others in the area.

Went to Bellaria for my birthday with a group of 16 friends. It was great and I'd definitely recommend it - the food was delicious, the service great, the atmosphere fun, and we had the opentable deal of 50% off all starters and mains which made the meal very good value.

We flew in and out of London on our 2 week travels. The last day of our first time there we ate there and it was amazing. The food, the service, the ambiance, everything! After 5 countries, we had one night back in London before our long trek home and we went here. This was one of our favorite, home like feels with great food!
