Great food. It’s one of the rare gems I’ve discovered. Service can be a tad slow and you can of course get better service elsewhere (even though it wasn’t bad) but the food is simply great.
It’s hard to stand out as an Italian restaurant in my view. But, this one does! Highly recommend it.
PS - the pizzas are also fab.
Ciullosteria really is our favourite Italian restaurant in South West London, and we keep coming back! Food is delicious, atmosphere really cosy, and service impeccable. We will surely come back with friends and family!
Favourite place. Love the food and the staff! Always a treat to eat there.
Living nearby I use Ciullosteria a lot, meals with friends and family. I have never experienced a bad meal or service there. I think the restaurant speaks for itself judging by the full house most nights. Excellent Italian restaurant.
Best secret ever. I love how it’s a family run restaurant (or it feels like that). Beautiful balance of intimate, cosy and classy. Then there’s the food, amazing, to match the service itself. I’ve been going there for about 8 years and I’m 31.
Amazing neighborhood italian. Great service and even better food.
We've been returning customers now for the past 8 years and as always, really amazing food and the place is just wonderful!
Our favourite Italian Balham!! Always a lovely visit! Delicious food and service ☺️
Firm local favourite with great wine list, consistently good menu and specials all topped up with friendly happy service.
The best Italian in the area by a mile. The fish is cooked to perfection and the ingredients of their dishes exceptional.
A perfect place. Great food, friendly staff. Well worth a visit for a casual dinner or a special occasion.
Amazing home cooked Italian food. The staff are very friendly & I love eating here.
OMG! This place is perfect! Homemade pasta and wonderful attention to details. We loved everything we had!
Perfetto! Never fails to deliver great. Gf is Italian and she likens it to home cooked food by Nonna. No better accolade
Superb all round restaurant- staff attentive but not fussing. Food delicious, fantastic choice of food and of course excellent wine. Would highly recommend
This is our favourite local Italian which always offers great quality at a good price. Never been disappointed.
We would recommend that you book a table at this small restaurant as it would be a shame to miss the opportunity to eat here. Excellent menu, great specials.
Went for our daughter's 10th birthday dinner. My family's favourite restaurant. Always fantastic.
Again another fab meal at Ciullosteria, the starters were superb and the home made pasta delicious. The waiting staff are so friendly and attentive! 6th time here and we will be back again.
The food was generally good with care taken in preparation and presentation. Outstanding Spaghetti Vongole we thought and tender lamb cutlets. Friendly service too. One caveat was the long wait for the main course. Pity, because the sense of authenticity in the Osteria with discerning local patrons in a pleasant environment is strong.
Loved the friendly ‘family’ feel, service and good also amazing.
Always go to Ciullosteria when in in South London. The food is always great and service is friendly and cheerful. See you again next time.
Ciullo's never disappoints! Thank you again for delicious food, kind service and a great evening!
Good service and delicious food - would definitely come back again.
Lovely find this family run restaurant. Extensive menu, great food and ambience. Will certainly eat there again.
Main course pasta was good for us both. Starters (calamari and deep fried mozzarella) were too greasy. Wine a bit on the expensive side. Overall good.
Our favourite as always!
Me and my partner come back here again and again. Lovely service, lovely food.
Have been here a couple of times and the food is absolutely fantastic. Fresh ingredients delicately cooked and beautifully served.
Fabulous neighbourhood restaurant with wonderful staff. Great for families.
Amazing place - great food & service - couldn’t ask for any more!
I have been many times to this gem of a restaurant in Balham. Excellent food and service.
Food was great and great service. A lovely family run Italian!
Nice, authentic, family run Italian restaurant. Lovely food at reasonable prices and great service. Will definitely return.
Essere a Londra e non andare da Ciullosteria sarebbe stato un peccato mortale. La pizza e' fantastica con una pasta lievitata, leggera, saporita. I piatti sono sempre curati, generosi nelle porzioni. Io vado matto per le capesante al parmigiano, ma anche il tonno superlativo. Insomma si trovano autentici sapori italiani in una cucina attenta alla qualita' delle materie prime e degli ingredienti. Un posto dove tornero' sicuramente molte altre volte!
We enjoyed our visit to this restaurant and would return often if we lived locally. The menu was exciting and food was very tasty. The service was attentive and the atmosphere very friendly.
Great food and attentive staff for a Saturday date night meal!
This was the second time that I have eaten here and did not disappoint again.
This is a traditional family Italian restaurant and the menu has some old favourites for back in the day.
We went Saturday night and the place was packed, however food and service remained excellent.
Definitely will return sooner rather than later.
Really good local Italian restaurant with a good variety of options.
Always wonderful food and great friendly service where the meals are served promptly
