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.

The staff were super attentive and the service was quick. The pitchers they offer here are a good idea and the pimms one didn’t taste watered down like some other places. The food is also delicious albeit slightly overpriced for the portion size. The area the restaurant is in is so nice and quiet and I would 100% recommend this place

We went there a bit early but they still catered us. Due to restrictions we sat outside the restaurant right beside the road. The service was fantastic. They gave us enough time to decide on our order. We had the calamari and scallop (special of the day) for starters and they were delicious. Same goes with our mains which was linguine crab meat and 28-day aged sirloin. I liked the way my sirloin was cooked, which I asked it to be (medium well). Everything else is fine apart from the space which was a bit tight. We were right beside another table, about an arms length, so you have to walk sideways just to move out. This is understandable though due to current restrictions. Overall, we enjoyed it.

After sitting down earlier than our booking, we were told that we only had 1.5 hours which didn't make sense.

Then I got ordered sea bass and got it served raw, the biggest mistake a restaurant can make surely. The drinks had minimal alcohol in them and I requested for the second round to actually add alcohol (it tasted like pineapple juice)

At the end, my bill came, and no amendment or service was changed to reflect being served raw food. I had to ask for an amendment and the only thing removed was a £9 starter.

Not impressed by the service or serving of raw food and won't be returning

Deciding upon this beautiful restaurant in Fitzrovia was one of my girlfriends finest gifts. Initially we only wanted to have some nice pasta dishes but were taken back by the fish platter that another table were feasting upon. BOY were we not disappointed! This fine array of fishes was truly spectacular. To top it off we both the delicious Tiramisu

Honestly really overpriced it was basic food in a basic area and the homemade tagliatelle says it’s 7 hour slow cooked beef in it which isn’t the case it’s normal minced meat, really poor quality food, the seating is very uncomfortable and the outside heaters work so badly their basically non existent will definitely never return

Great food and very nice and fast service. Compliments for the heaters and blankets, as it is outdoor seating, these are really necessary. We had a very nice time. 😊I would recommend your restaurant.

The staff were all friendly, fun, and kind. The espresso martinis were great as were the starters (we were just snacking not having a big meal).
It was a first date and I was very nervous, but the friendly and helpful without being overbearing waitresses made me feel much better and we had a pleasant time.
It’s just a bit pricey for the portion sizes, I would definitely return if they did a happy hour of some sort. Which their starters and sides they could for sure do some sort of deal to attract the young people.
Quiet area and not too far from the main street at all.

i booked the table at nine under a heat, as soon as we arrived we waited 15 minutes and since they gave a table away from the heat, we suffered from the cold. the fish was not fresh (frozen) after dinner i asked to go to the bathroom and he told me no because they had started cleaning. shameful, we don't treat customers like this .. I will never come back .. I do not recommend it at all

It’s was one of the restaurants available last minute and now I know why. It’s bad. The food and poor abs overpriced. Both pasta and risotto were over cooked. Buratta was good, but they buy it, don’t cook.
Surprisingly enough the day after our visit o was talking to a friend who was referring to a very bad Italian restaurant booked last minute, then we both realized we went to the same one.
The prices are much higher than the food quality

Food was so overpriced - you could honestly get a better meal from Nando’s. The chicken was from a freezer and so were the fries and they dare charge £18 for that.

I’ve walked past this place so many times and can’t believe I’ve never noticed it before! The service was great, super super fast, the food was delicious (speaking as a picky eater) and the portion sizes were really good value. Great ambience, lively atmosphere and decent cocktails. Would love to go back again!

Have visited this restaurant regularly. The food is always good and it is priced reasonably. Was impressed with how they have adapted their open space to cope with the COVID al fresco rules. And the service - as usual - is charming
