A local favourite. Wide and delicious food menu, good wine list, lovely staff, great atmosphere. use for many different occasions and people. Never disappoints!
I cannot recommend Ciuollosteria enough. It is a regular for Sunday lunch for my family. Some of the most delicious, authentic, italian food we have ever tasted. It’s great for kids, large groups or a romantic meal for two. Try it! You will never want to eat anywhere else again!
We were in Balham for a party and didn't know the area or the restaurant; we had booked online. It is a real gem - small and intimate, we were warmly welcomed, with attentive service and spotless table linen. Great music playing but not too loud and a good atmosphere. The food was authentic, home-cooked Italian cuisine - delicious! You definitely need to book at the weekend; excellent - thoroughly recommend it; we will be returning!
Highly recommend. Great food. Great service. Great ambiance. All round win!
Very friendly as always.
Our favourite place. Probably eat here once a month and have never been disappointed. The staff, the food, everything is just wonderful!
Good genuine Italian food and paste made on the premises, I can’t understand why I don’t go here more often. They are helpful, welcoming really nice people and I’ve never had any food I can fault. Wine list is better value for money than many places. Perhaps a bit noisy when full but that is fine if your not looking for intimate chat, unless you want close tables to hear too.
Great service and fantastic food. My mum forgot her scarf and staff went out of their way to return it.
As always, amazing food and service, best Italian in Balham.
We have just moved into Balham, and Ciullõsteria is the first restaurant we went in this neighborhood.
The service was outstanding and we felt very welcome. We went on a Tuesday night and the atmosphere was very peaceful. The food was really nice - I had a Pizza with Burrata - which was really tasty, and my partner had the Sea Bass, which was really good as well.
I highly recommend this lovely family place, which is perfect for a romantic dinner, family meal or friend reunion.
Fairly run of the mill Italian. Somewhat tasteless food (over chilled, prepared too far in advance) and the pizza dough was unchewable. We mentioned this and in fairness they deleted the cost of the pizza from the bill. BUT, this is an Italian restaurant and the pizza should be excellent.
Unfortunately I won't be returning.
Good food and the service was excellent.
A little more attention required to the washrooms which were not attended too for quite some time , as the Paper Towels were falling into the sink getting wet and the bins were overflowing in the ladies
What a local gem! First time here and I loved it, the food was amazing- the bread with goats cheese and red onion was insane (I could have had two!)
Portions are also very generous, safe to say we were very well fed.
All the staff were lovely, attentive and knowledgable. I can't wait to come back already.
Authentic and delicious. Very accommodating and attentive service. Booking is advised.
Excellent service and great Italian food. The staff were exemplary and made our meal all the Moreno enjoyable
Always a pleasure and sure to return. A relaxed yet upmarket local. Becoming regulars and enjoying each visit more and more. Excellent Limoncello!
Spent a lovely Saturday night at Ciullosteria. The food and service were wonderful. Will definitely be going back, and would certainly recommend to anyone else looking for a nice place to dine in Balham (or even worth the trip if you are travelling from elsewhere!)
The starter and main was good, the services were nice too, it was very friendly and cozy place. I've ordered Affogato for dessert but it was a little disappointing. I think the coffee had also a bit of alcohol, which ruined the taste I expected from Affogato. Overall though, it was a good dineout.
excellent food as usual.
Lively place which is fun
One of my favourite restaurants to eat in. Staff are amazing and generous and attentitive. Food is great quality and ingredients and very gernerous portiin sizes. Always have an amazing experience when i go!
A really lovely small traditional Italian making delicious dishes
Lovely food, independent and great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and we are quite particular!! :)
Nice food, good atmosphere and attentive staff
Always an enjoyable meal
Excellent food, and good attentive service. Look forward to next visit
I always enjoy eating here. The staff are really friendly and the food is gorgeous. It’s always my first choice for a celebration meal.
Fantastic restaurant serving deliciously authentic Italian cuisine! The service and value was first class, would definitely recommend!
Great food and a friendly service. Will definitely come back!
If you are looking for a traditional Italian this is a brilliant choice in my opinion. The menu is extensive and the food has the feeling of home cooking which is wonderful. I had the fillet steak with gorgonzola. It was met in the mouth. The staff are also very friendly.
All good. Would go again . Man size dishes, I approve .
this time around went to Ciullosteria for an early dinner with kids.
Not only the staff accommodated all possible requests from kids (and me) but also was fully aware we could not stay too long and service was super quick without compromising quality of the food. My number 1 local Italian by far in Balham
