A word from Bellaria Restaurant & Wine Bar
Absolutely, charmingly unique, the Bellaria Restaurant and Wine Bar in London’s upmarket Fitzrovia is a must for those tiring of the same old dining experience. From street level, Bellaria is quite simple – a pleasant, attractive Italian restaurant with an inviting atmosphere, bright and simple décor and the best seats of the house in daylight hours are by the wide windows where one can watch the world go by. However, a few steps below and guests are transported to a whole other world. Bellaria’s basement level truly is straight out of an ancient fairytale, its bare stone walls with their arches, nooks and crannies complemented by chandeliers and trickster mirrors, low lighting casting a golden glow. It’s the ideal setting for romance and a real surprise to everyone who discovers it. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Firstly, they do a very good value 50% off food if you order a starter and a main, although their signature dishes aren't included in this. The food is excellent. I had the ricotta crepe for starter which was outstanding, and the cod for main which was good, albeit a touch small. Service is excellent, food is brilliantly presented and the atmosphere is of a relaxed Italian restaurant who are proud of their food. I'll be going back."

  • "I've been here a number of times now and am never disappointed. The food is lovely and, combined with the toptable 50% off deal, you can sample the appetisers and mains (signature dishes are 25% off instead) for an affordable price. The ragu tagliatelli is a personal favourite."

  • "Last minute booking at Bellaria, 8.30pm on Saturday with -50% OpenTable deal. Sat in the basement. The food was very good with generous portions, although slightly overpriced without the 50% discount. Unfortuantely the service was less than friendly. Waiter was easily distracted - cut off from taking our order to bark orders/comments at other staff and didn't crack a smile the entire time we were there, which was a real shame as it would definitely put me off returning despite enjoying the food. Discount wasn't taken off the bill, it was removed without any issue - or even a word from the "happy" waiter! If the waiting staff could cheer up a bit, this could be a lovely place but probably wouldn't return or recommend due to this."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "Very slow service. There were 3 staff running the downstairs section, however only one of them could take orders or use the till, therefore it took a lifetime to order anything. The remaining 2 staff stood behind the bar polishing cutlery and asked us to wait for him to come back when we requested another bottle of wine, despite them both being stood next to it. No wine cooler was provided. All 3 meals were very nice, apart from the crab starter which was full of shell. Will not be returning as found it a very frustrating experience. Felt sorry for the 1 guy who was doing 3 peoples jobs!"

  • "Couldn't fault the service or quality of food at Bellaria. We were on a 'special offer' deal at the restaurant and were given a 5 star experience. Thank you."
    dined on 07/08/2014
  • "Really like the food and ambience here. Eating on the street outside the restaurant at lunch time is always fun and lots of celeb watching from the BBC as well as just a nice bustling, but not over-busy, part of the west end. Service always prompt and with a smile. Good for business lunches in the week. Loses one star for me because of odd, and not quite up to scratch, loos."
    dined on 07/08/2014
  • "Great food lovely staff and wonderful ambience. Will definitely be back again - good value for the quality of food especially with the 50% of starters and mains deal."
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "Via open table, got a great discount on the food, which effectually paid for our bottle of wine. Was in London for a short amount of time, the restaurant was very close to our Hotel. Liked it that much, dinned there again the 2nd night, and will propably go back on our return trip via London."
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "booked via open table special for a quiet dinner with my two adult daughters. Service was great. The 50% food offer was good from the a la carte menu. Between 3 of us we shared our starters and mains. The combined opinion was "4 out of 6" dishes were remarkably good. The other "2" were OK. House wine was palatable (or above). We dined upstairs by a window which was great given the summer evening light. With the offer we dined for £40 per person including a pre dinner drink and 2 bottles of house wine. With the food combo and the friendly service it was great value."
    dined on 21/07/2014
  • "My family and I had a most enjoyable evening'.The food was 'echt' Italian -beautifully cooked and presented . The staff were very attentive and relaxed without being intrusive ."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • " Food and service were very good. Without the 50% opentable discount for starters and main, it may have become too pricey. However, credit for the big portions and lovely food."
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "Strawberry Prosecco always starts things off well and this was no exception. It was, perhaps, disappointing that the atmospheric cellar was closed but it gets too hot in the summer. So we ate outside on Great Titchfield Street. The Maitre D' was most attentive finding the best combination of dying sun and shelter from the mild breeze. My Salmon in mint jelly was almost perfect (I would have liked a little more mint in the jelly) and the sweet red onion set it off beautifully. Following this with Medaillons of Lamb was (though I say it myself) inspired. Perfectly cooked meat with garlic spinach was delicious. All washed down with a bottle of Trebbiano, for my two companions' choice of meal, a very enjoyable evening was had by all."
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "Excellent service this time around - made to feel special in spite of being on the 50% deal. Zucchini very salty but all other food very tasty."
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "We had good food and great service at an excellent price. Everyone enjoyed the evening and said what a "great find" Bellaria was."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "Nice Italian that's very conveniently located. With the 50% food discount the bill was around £50 for two courses with wine for two - decent price given the quality of the food and presentation."
    dined on 06/07/2014
  • "Good food in good quantities, very well presented in a very pleasant ambience inside and out. Excellent efficient service - we were greeted on arrival despite a last minute booking on Saturday night. Nice location on street corner in Fitzrovia, not too busy or noisy. We had the 50% offer for starters & mains which made the menu prices good value."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "Brilliant as per usual! Absolutely delicious, service is amazing. Will be going back again and will recommend it to everyone I know."
    dined on 03/07/2014
  • "Good value with 50% off otherwise might be a little pricey. Wine list on more expensive side too."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "really chilled atmosphere for such a nice restaurant, food was amazing"
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "We booked the 50% off offer on Open Table and that was great - without it I feel the place would be too expensive for what it is. The service was great - very friendly. The food was lovely and the wine flowed - a nice place and would defintely go back. Do book with the offer though."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "not that we needed that, it was a girl´s evening, but if you are looking for the brick alcoves, phone ahead and ask. I had pasta as a starter - yum - and a chicken main, very good, one friend liked her fish but one friend thought her liver was overcooked. Service was good, We would return."
    dined on 09/06/2014
  • "So many restaurants in London but definitely made the right choice! Great location, friendly staff, beautiful food. With the 50% off deal we got a great dinner for 2 with drinks for £54. Would greatly recommend!"
    dined on 08/06/2014
  • "Was taking visiting family shopping along Oxford Street, expected most places to be expensive or poor quality considering its such a touristy area. Found Bellaria on open table as they were offering a 50% off food if you had a starter and a main. Was really nicely surprised, the food was very good and the waiters/waitresses were great, friendly and attentive."
    dined on 08/06/2014
  • "Great choice of meals, good value for money, outstanding service, easy to get to."
    dined on 03/06/2014
  • "Good food, attentive service in a great atmosphere, we call enjoyed the evening"
    dined on 27/05/2014
  • "We were very happy with the meal overall and the staff were friendly. With the opentable discount, it was worth the visit, but I would not want to pay full price. I felt they were taking the Mickey with the price of the coffee though. Also, it was a shame that the downstairs area was closed, as that was actually why we picked the restaurant."
    dined on 18/05/2014
  • "I've been there at least 5 times and it's always great to be back. All our friends who we took there, mostly Italians, always complimented our great choice. Ask for a table downstairs to boost the ambience or outside on a sunny afternoon. "
    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "I had been to Bellaria once before and had a great meal. But sadly it was not to be again. The food was poorly cooked, poorly presented, tasted so awful we had to send it all back and our new meals were not much better. Very poor value for money, even with 50% deal! Inedible. The only saving grace for them is that their waiters were super attentive and very apologetic. We were not the only customers to complain. Very big shame."
    dined on 16/05/2014
  • "Met some family for a special dinner. Weren't disappointed. Food was very good. Service was top notch. Wine choice was good and well priced. Everyone enjoyed their food even the hardened vegetarian. Will certainly return for more!"
    dined on 15/05/2014
  • "i had dinner at Bellaria with two friends. it is a nice, buzzy and pleasant place. staff are kind and helpful. nice place for a mid wk catch up dinner."
    dined on 15/05/2014
  • "One of the waiters was abrupt to the point of being rude, got our drinks order wrong, and we were then wrongly billed. I think his English may have been lacking, but that's no excuse for service without a smile. The beer and white wine were not properly chilled. Other than that, the upstairs is a pleasant, airy affair, the ambiance was good and the food was nice."
    dined on 15/05/2014
  • "Nice venue! Seated downstairs in the strangest corner ever, very dark, hidden and backed onto the back of seats of another table so really tight fit! Considering my guest was visibly pregnant and other tables available you would have thought a better table would have been offered as we moved ourselves twice! The starters took an hour to come with no apology except 50mins later saying "aubergine takes longer to cook"? This was not acceptable for us so instead ordered baskets of bread to ease our hunger. Food is nice. but basic you may need sides to beef it up again. Staff extremely Italian, sometimes difficult to understand but it's a great tough to bring the authenticity the West End. "
