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
A go to local Italian. Good value and welcoming. Highly recommended.
Have taken all my friends and family here. The food is always good, price is reasonable, service is really friendly, ambience is great, can't ask for anything more! Probably my fav italian restaurant in London!
This restaurant was very good value . The food was good . It was not haute cuisine but it was nice ingredients cooked plainly and well . I had liver and sage which wasn't char grilled but was delicious and filling . It came with an assortment of vegetables : broccoli , carrots , beans and roast potatoes ( well it was Sunday lunch ) and these were just al dente . I was not overfaced by the main dish but I was when I finished the pudding _ meringue , ice cream and a couple of strawberries . Finished with coffee and complimentary Limoncello . Service was good and attentive and an all round OK experience . I'd go there again certainly .
Ciullio's has been a long standing restaurant of choice for very good Italian cooking. As always the food was top notch with service to match. Looking forward to the next visit.
An outstanding family run Italian restaurant with wonderful cuisine. The ambiance is great and there is an impressive wine list. This is a favourite restaurant of mine (and I’m well experienced dining at Italian restaurants) . I don’t see how this place could be faulted.
We had a table for four on a quiet Sunday luchtime with only a few other tables occupied so we enjoyed personal and attentive service from the charming waitresses. The food was exceptional. My lobster tagliolini (with home made fresh egg pasta) was full-flavoured and very well seasoned. The pizza Napolitana (with extra chilli) , roast chicken and penne arrabiata ordered by my companions were all judged to be very good indeed. Four very clean plates remained after we finished eating our main courses! Starters - especially the parma ham-wrapped tiger prawns - and desserts - wonderful semi-freddo - were also of a really high standard and there is a good value wine list. Eating here is often a bustling and typically Italian experience so it was a nice change to eat when the restaurant was quiet. Highly recommend the experience.
This is our family go to place in Balham. The food is delicious, especially the pasta, and lovely ambience and very friendly staff!!
Lovely restaurant in Balham. Service personal and attentive. Starters were excellent. Portions very generous. A little disappointed with the pasta dishes. Did not taste truly authentically Italian however overall a great experience. Really good value for money. The pizzas looked superb and will be my choice on the next visit
Best hidden secret in Balham. Wonderful food always and fantastic service/ ambience.
