Italian
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.

Private Dining

Bellaria offers private dining rooms for small groups 4-10 people, or larger private parties for up to 55 people (seated). The basememt area consists of 2 private alcove areas and a VIP table for 4 situated in the far corner. The exposed brick walls and low lamp lighing make an inviting atmosphere.

A cute restaurant with a lovely basement dining area although the lighting could be a bit brighter as it was difficult to read the menu. Staff were very friendly but the service was a bit slow. The food was pretty average. Be that as it may, it had charm and on balance I would recommend it;

MMMMM....I don't like leaving unenthusiastic reviews esp when I've previously given this place 5 stars but our last visit was very disappointing. Since my last visit they have really restricted the items that you can select for the 50% off. Previously the 50% off was pretty generous although it excluded some items like steaks. The selection now is pretty poor and you are really only left with pasta choices. The service was also pretty poor. Our waitress was nice when you could catch her eye but the problem was that we couldn't and spend long periods just trying to get someones attention.
Their 50% offer used to pretty generous but they should have reduced it to 35% or less if it was nonviable and kept up the standards and the choice.

Unlimited Prosecco!

Came back to Bellaria again. Love the pre-theatre menu with unlimited prosecco. A great welcome from the lovely manager and his staff and fabulous service as usual. I had garlic bread, baby squid, Salmon and Tiramasu. It was my birthday so I had a really good time. The set menu is great but it would be lovely to see it changed from time to time. Apart from that the best Italian food in London!

Great food presented and served well. Our choice of wine was unavailable so our waitress offered us a more expensive bottle for the same price, this was great. Would definitely recommend.

Went for the prosecco and three courses deal for a friend's birthday. Food was just okay, though the squid and gnocchi were good. However, the staff were very accommodating and friendly, made sure our glasses were always topped off and sweetly brought limoncello shots for the table with the cake. We had a very good afternoon.

An absolute delicious meal. My partner chose the rib eye steak special which was cooked to perfection. I had very tasty linguine with clams. The meals were very good value. Very authentic food.
The owner very friendly and customer satisfaction. He took time to chat to us which was nice and added to the evening. The restaurant was nice and cosy. Excellent attention to detail in the food

On arriving at the restaurant we were slightly disappointed from seeing the pictures. We shared a cheese dish to start which was quite greasy. For main we had crab spaghetti which was good, and venison ravioli which was really disappointing - the pasta was so thick and chewy around the edges.

The sharing platters are amazing, great selection of cheese and meats. The wines we tried were all great and we were given a bit of info about each of them.

It’s quite informal and after giving you a bit of info on the wine completely leave you to it until you’re ready for the next one, service felt a bit slow but I think they were waiting for a signal that you wanted the next one rather than bothering people or speeding you through which was nice.

Sadly the restaurant have a few too many conditions that make the 50% off the menu offer worthwhile. It’s also not clear which main/starter is available to qualify for the offer ie that the two must be taken together from the a la carte or set menu or whatever. The garlic bread was absolutely drenched in butter- really greasy. The Sardinian small pasta with sausage, tomato and pecorino cheese was nothing to write home about - quite bland in fact. The sausage meat was scant and like bits of mince. When we questioned the incorrect bill, the waiter adjusted in grumpily. Probably best to go elsewhere as there are plenty of others in the area.

Went to Bellaria for my birthday with a group of 16 friends. It was great and I'd definitely recommend it - the food was delicious, the service great, the atmosphere fun, and we had the opentable deal of 50% off all starters and mains which made the meal very good value.

We flew in and out of London on our 2 week travels. The last day of our first time there we ate there and it was amazing. The food, the service, the ambiance, everything! After 5 countries, we had one night back in London before our long trek home and we went here. This was one of our favorite, home like feels with great food!

We took the offer of a starter and main course with 50% off. When we got there we were given the menu and ordered from it. When presented with the bill it was full menu with no discount. I checked and they said yes you have a discount due !! I knew this. They then didn’t discount all the food but rather certain dishes saying their signature dishes are not included. When I read the small print they are correct. However it’s v v v misleading. Also one of the mains didn’t turn up. I felt really misled and hate having a debate about a bill in a busy restaurant. All in a bad night out. Never again

I came back to this lovely family run restaurant after 2 years. The manager recognised me and we had a nice table by the window. We booked the pre-theatre meal with unlimited Prosecco. The wine was free flowing and the glasses continually topped up. I had Bruschetta ‘classic style’ with tomatoes, garlic and red onion and mozzarella for starters. Then Salmon, salad and french fries for main course and Tiramasu for dessert. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding again! I can't wait until my next meal there! Thank you again Bellaria!

The staff were very welcoming and couldn’t do enough for you. The fish sharing pot was yummy..The pasta I had for my main course was just enough and the tiramisu was out of this world..! Really enjoyable experience.

The restaurant was very accommodating as we had a member of the party on a very restricted diet and this was accommodated successfully. The person running front of house had a good sense of humour and was attentive without being obtrusive - he helped make a very good evening. The service was a little slow at times hence the 3 stars.
