This meat would often be rolled up into a little bundle and contain bits of cheese or be held together by cured meat. A delicious food and a tradition based on community, eating and sharing together was born. And now it's here...
Great food and friendly relaxed service and feel to it all. Will defo be going back.
Great authentic ligurian restaurant. All dishes were divine and well thought out to hit the palate well. Wines are a bit pricey - could do with some good house wines at £15 per bottle.
This place was a last min find and a great place to eat. We would recommend it for any occasion.
Always enjoy a night at Bombetta. It’s nice to see the menus always changing but with some faves still available and such a range of options, especially for a non-meat eater like me.
Amazing food and vibe! Great service!
Very enjoyable evening!
The food is absolutely wonderful and staff are so friendly and helpful. My favourite restaurant. Always a pleasure to go.
Every time I go have the best time with lovely food and great service. I took my partner as I knew he’d also love it, which he did.
Incredible food, thoroughly enjoyed our experience here. My wife is coeliac and the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating to her dietary requirements. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone with a love of Italian food - so simple, delicious and beautifully presented. A real gem!
Fantastic meal thanks. Moist chicken wrapped around oozing cheese and coated in breadcrumbs (a bombetta) followed by an amazing chocolate cake with Cointreau ice cream. We all really enjoyed it.
First time at the restaurant and will be going back for sure. The food was fantastic and service as good as the food. Congratulations to the team at the restaurant. The first meal out since lockdown and boy was it worth the wait!
We went with an open mind and were delighted. Fantastic food and great staff, relaxed atmosphere. It was the first time we had been and enjoyed everything we ordered. We will certainly return.
We always have an amazing meal at Bombetta and last night did not dissapoint! Fab cocktails, great menu suitable for the vegetarians in the group too and always fab service from Jo, Jojo, and the team!
Lovely friendly staff. Relaxed setting and the food was lovely and interesting.
shame I can't give more than 5 stars, best Italian place in London
A bit of a mixed bag to be honest. We have dined here on three previous occasions and have had a bit of a mixed time then too.
We had made a reservation and arrived a little early but they were happy to seat us.
We then waited quite a while for anyone to take a drinks order (and even then only after i called someone over). The drinks then took a bit of making...... my husband's negroni was not even stirred and for some reason my drink came in a plastic glass (which I asked to be changed - sorry but when you're paying £10.50 for a cocktail I think you can at least drink it from a glass.
Food wise some things were under-seasoned (Kolrabi carpaccio) and some over (courgette fritters). The strawberry dessert particularly tasteless. The bombettas fantastic.
Once we got the professional waitress the service improved but we felt (as we previously had done) that there always seems to be a good number of staff and yet they are not very efficient. There were four wait staff and only a maximum of five tables at any one time so it's almost man to man marking.......
So i'd say, go if you are patient and have the bombettas or the pasta, the wine is great but probably don't bother with a cocktail.
Pre-booked table for two, inside.
A welcoming meet and greet, easy menu option (different from the average Italian restaurant), serving dishes from the south of Italy.
Excellent girls waiting on table... and the boys in the kitchen were enjoying preparing the meals. Prompt service, tasty food and a selection good wines.
Although quiet upon arrival at 6.30pm, it soon had a buzz about the place and again, the 'industrial' look, concrete, metal and shabby-style wood, made a pleasant change to the average restaurant look. Spotlessly clean toilets.
Good quality food ...... not cheap ...... but if you want cheap, there's a McDonalds in Leytonstone! First visit, will definitely be going back. 'Hat's off' to the Bombetta !
Beautiful atmosphere to go with the to die for tastes of courgette fries, crispy courgette fries I may add so fresh complementing the fresh and softly cooked sea bass. The chef knows how to awaken the taste buds as the memories of my taste buds are still reminiscing of the the flavours they encountered on the evening of may 21 2021.
This is a great restaurant... if you love original and homemade,genuine regional Italian food.
It was our first choice after lockdown!
Really nice really friendly, Jo made the whole experience very enjoyable.
Always delicious, excellent quality food and friendly staff.
We love coming here- the variety of the dishes are always full of surprises and they are very tasty and authentic. The staff are super friendly and always so welcoming.
Truly excellent food and wine... we left very happy and the staff were brilliant. X
Consistently gorgeous food. Absolutely love this place and can’t wait to go back.
fantastic service, food and wine! we will be back! thank you
Love love love this place! Cannot recommend enough
authentic and delicious. staff was friendly and so enthusiastic about the food offering.
Not your average Italian. Different food, quite rich, no oversized pepper grinders , and a couple of vegan dishes that are well thought out. I’ll cheerfully go back there
As Great as always! Can’t fault food or service... Greta didn’t of house team and love the outdoor seating too...
Beautiful roast dinners and fantastic service, as always
Wonderful experience again at Bombetta for family on a very special occasion. Excellent food and service, their attention to detail and service to their customers was amazing. We will all certainly be back, everyone enjoyed a lovely afternoon, thank you so much for accommodating us.
The staff were super friendly and the food as always was spot on! Would recommend this restaurant to everyone and would go every night of the week if I could!
Definitely try the honey burrata, grilled watermelon and grilled aubergine if you go - melt in your mouth goodness!
The selection of food was explosive with flavours. I tried the watermelon and it was delicious. Food quality is very high. Portions are quite big and a good variety of choice. Service was friendly and they were very accommodating with blankets, heaters and advice on the menu. I’d go again and recommend.
Great food, ambience and overall feel. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable about the food! Be back soon!
Lovely food and wine, very friendly and attentive staff, overall a great experience. Not the cheapest meal but for an occasion it’s a real treat. Would definitely recommend.
Fantastic food and service.
Even with the current restrictions the atmosphere was lovely.
As always great food and service from the team at Bombetta.
Fabulous as always! How these guys manage to keep things going so perfectly whilst being seated outside is just brilliant!
Fantastic service, always with a friendly smile and the food is just incredible!
Ben & Jo have a fantastic team who do such a brilliant job.
Can’t wait to come back again
As always, the food is great. Delicious burrata and the bombetta are a must. The staff are always really friendly and the atmosphere is great. Our favourite local place to eat.
Service was very slow and when ordered main meal the other sides came once we had nearly finished our food , as spoke to waitress and said we was waiting for our side dishes but turned up once we had virtually eaten our food and couldn’t wait for dishes as cos we was seated outside and was cold food was going cold .
Amazing food, delicious wine, lovely venue and very helpful friendly staff
