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.

Overall experience was good.
The environment was cozy, the food nice and tasty ( panacota mango was his favourite) but weren’t very impressed with the drinks.
Staff were lovely and welcoming.

The food was fantastic and for the prices we were paying I could not complain too much. I think the fish dishes were maybe overpriced however the taste of them was brilliant. Wine choice was good with 98% being Italian as you would expect. The portion sizes were great and the staff were so friendly and attentive. We sat outside which provided a good ambience as the whole area was busy, but will definitely try downstairs inside when it opens back up as it looks superb

Hands down, the best restaurant in London. This is my first time even writing a review on Open Table - it’s absolutely my favourite place in London and along with the food, the staff are amazing. So friendly and helpful. I cannot recommend this place enough. The garlic and mozzarella bread has changed my life for the better.

The staff were lovely... food was not great, biggest disappointment was the fact we looked at this place online and it looked like a lovely resturant, we got dressed up to go there and when we turned up was seated in what I can of describe as a cafe like place, later after paying over 100 for just 2 steaks and a bottle of wine we found that the cafe was at the top and resturant at the bottom. This was a huge disappointment to our night as by the time we saw this we had already eaten our meal!!! Staff were lovely but everything else not so great

The food, the ambience (art, background music, wine bottles all over the walls), the service, the attention to detail ... I cannot emphasise enough how much of a great restaurant Bellaria is.
My experience started with a warm welcome, and we were offered samples of wine before making a selection - I forgot to ask for the old man's name, he really knows his wines.
Constantly vigilant as to the customer's needs (I.e. glass needs a refill, new cutlery, any other requests)
Cheers for accommodating my request for a table by the window - it did not disappoint. I'd recommend this for a date, it is quite the romantic spot 💯

In short, great restaurant! Decently sized portions for gourmet food, and the price you'd expect for everything I have mentioned here.
Thanks for the great experience! 💯

The restaurant did not ask us to use the track and trace service, which I believe is mandatory now. Also one of those waiting at the table took off the masks to speak to us a few times. It is not safe at this point.

Bellaria is always a winner. The calamari is super fresh and crispy and the pasta was delicious.

They are dog friendly if we sit outside as well.

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.
