About

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 50% discount was very misleading. When we ordered starters and mains we asked about quantities which we were sharing so consequently when the bill came we had been charged for 4 starters not 2 as expected. This was for a fish stew but had only a couple of prawns and mussels and for the cost extortionate. Same thing happened with mains. Spoilt a birthday evening with the family but the staff were pleasant and the ambience good. Disappointed really. Very expensive night out for us

Went as a group for New Years Eve, despite the lkmitsd NYE menu the food was great, service was first class and even the disco/party didn't disrupt the ambiance of this fab place. Won't hesitate to go back for another nice, intimate dinner. Thanks.

We had Christmas lunch here. A nice prix fixe menu was offered. Everything was very good, and the ambiance was festive. We felt that the price was a little high but the owners/workers were extremely attentive, and they did everything they could to make it a very nice dining experience. The extra dining in the basement was nice...cozy.

Met for a Christmas catch up with a very good friend. Obviously the restaurant was busy particularly with Christmas group lunch bookings, but we had a table in a private alcove which although at first seemed like a bad choice in actual fact it was great for us. We were worried we might be forgotten but service was good once we got over an initial delay with menus. Food was good quality, and wine was good and at a reasonable price. We were given coffees on the house and a free limoncello which was a nice touch. Will visit again.

The food was too pricey for what they offered. The chicken was not cooked well and the dessert tasted like pudding bought from Tesco.

We found this restaurant on ‘opentable’. Glad we found it as we had great food and fab service. The only bad points we weren’t offered regular water just bottled water. Also our cheese board two of the cheese selection was rock hard. You couldn’t cut it or bite it but overall we had great night.

Second time here and it was as cosy and friendly as I remember. You don't feel rushed and the setting is warm and inviting. The food is also fantastic. Special thanks to Fernando who was a good sport chatting to us and was always there when we needed anything without being overbearing.

Definitely the best part about the restaurant was the food - which is the most important thing! Nice Italian pasta and reasonably priced Italian wine meant this was a nice place for a Friday meal. The place was busy and so the service was a little haphazard, though always polite and friendly - but not the place if you're in a rush. The downstairs area which is billed as a romantic vault was more like a vault - we were sitting in quite a thoroughfare, and there was clearly a desire to pack in as many tables as possible, slightly undermining the atmosphere. However, if a good value Italian meal is the aim then I would recommend.

First up we really enjoyed our evening. The service was excellent and the food very good.
BUT....two things that were a little irritating.
1. What is the point of asking if we are celebrating a special occasion, in this case our 19th wedding anniversary, when there is no acknowledgement at all from the restaurant. Then rather don’t ask if we are celebrating anything when booking
2. I had specifically requested that we would get a table in the cellar as it is the real attraction of this restaurant. When we arrived they said that they were full downstairs and our table was only available upstairs.

None of the above ruined what was a good meal but they didn’t make the evening as special as it should have been.

We had a really nice evening in Bellaria restaurant on the set menu option with free-flowing prosecco. The staff were lovely, no fuss was made when we arrive a little late and our glasses were topped up throughout our time in the restaurant. There are only 3 or 4 options per course but we all had no problem choosing a dish and all enjoyed our meals.
Thank you to everyone at the restaurant

Service was excellent, food was delicious, and the atmosphere was quite comfortable. The entire dining experience was exceptional, it gets 5 stars for me. Our server’s name was Jessica and she was very helpful with ordering food and even answering questions about the nearby area for us. If I had family coming to London, I’d recommend this place.

Possibly our favourite place to eat in London. The staff members were very attentive and friendly, nothing forced. We asked for recommendations on some of the food options and they were very helpful. Most importantly, considering we had starters, mains, dessert and drinks as well, the price was fantatic. Can't recommend this place enough.

So many good things to say about Bellaria. Our waiter, he was so kind, patient, and gave us good advice, and lemoncello to end our wonderful dinner, The chef makes wonderful pasta,. We had the tagliatelle bolognese . Our secondo was the risotto with black truffles. Could not have been better. And also a wonderful tiramisu to end our perfect dinner.
