The bustling café society vibe of London’s Balham High Road is the perfect setting for relaxed Italian restaurant Ciullõsteria. Friendly and laid back, the Ciullõsteria is inspired by the sun-infused food and chilled out nature of Southern Italy. The Calcagno family, owners of Ciullõsteria, has more than twenty years of experience in the Italian restaurant business, experience that is applied in every last aspect of the Osteria’s running – from the simple, comfortable and unpretentious design of the dining room to the always efficient yet unfailingly friendly service from staff who welcome guests as if they were old friends. But of course at Ciullõsteria it’s really the food that is the main focus. All traditional and completely authentic, Ciullõsteria provides home style Italian cookery ranging from hand made pasta to fresh, crisp twelve inch pizzas, all served with quality wines from the country’s best and most well known vineyards.

    It’s a long time since I was last at Ciullosteria so it was fabulous to discover it was as good as I remembered. Wonderful food, service and atmosphere! Also, my guest’s complex dietary requirements were met with kindness and delicious alternatives to the main menu choices - thank you to all the staff!

    We came back to Cuillosteria after many years and the food and quality of service is just the same as it was back then when we lived nearby. The dishes are classic Italian and presented well, full of flavour and well portioned. The service was attentive and familial. We will definitely return.
