Delicious as always. Couldn't recommend this place enough.
Excellent food and good selection of wines. Very pleasant surroundings.
Lovely little restaurant with fantastically fresh Italian food.
This is my favourite restaurant in Balham - delicious, authentic Italian food, amazing service, friendly staff, fun atmosphere and great value. Have been here numerous times and it never disappoints!
The food here is fantastic. It is my second visit and really enjoyed it. The ambience is also great, super cozy. They have an extensive menu with delicious food. The staff is really nice as well. I highly recommend this place!

Food was really good and authentic
Price was just right.
We love it here. My parents were visiting and they love it here too. So fantastic, the food, the staff, everything!
Great local Italian with an excellent variety of dishes, nice wine list and great desserts. Portions are also very generous - you will not leave hungry!
This restaurant is worth its weight in gold- hands down, simply the best Italian restaurant in south London. Service is friendly and food delicious. I come here as often as I can!
We absolutely love eating at this restaurant. The food is always so fresh and plentiful. Service is great and as a whole the restaurant is warm and welcoming
Great food, ambiance a really authentic vibe. Garlic bread is excellent!
Visited the restaurant based on other reviews. Overall not disappointed. The restaurant is smaller than pictures depict but enough space for our party of five people to eat comfortably. The food is very good and the service prompt given it was a Saturday evening and the restaurant was full. The meal cost approximately £35 per person (starter, main course and drinks (non-alcoholic) which I thought was good value for money. I would recommend the baby roast chicken for a main course, very good. Although we did not order any, from what I could see, the pizzas are also very popular choice.
I would definitely visit the restaurant again.
Took family for dinner, all shared starters and had mains. Great menu itself, a lot of enticing food. Wine selection was good to, a lot of variety at good price points. Food was very good, the seafood and homemade pasta are both outstanding.
Service is always nice - the restaurant is quite small but the staff are attentive, funny and accommodating zithout being overbearing. Expect £25 per person for food and a good bottle of wine around 30 Would highly recommend.
I have only discovered Ciullosteria recently (it is easy to pass) but it is a very good Italian restaurant.
On the occasions I have visited it was lively and full and it is wise to book.
The service is good and the food excellent. I fully recommend it.
Had a great midweek dinner here with friends. The atmosphere is buzzing, really friendly and cosy, and the service excellent. We were all delighted with our meals - delicious, authentic Italian food at reasonable prices. Will definitely be going back!
As always an excellent meal
When taking people out , this is always the first place I try to reserve a table
We always have a great night here. The food and service were excellent as always.
I had read all the really good reviews so was looking forward to try this place. Unfortunately it was just ok nothing special. Pasta was very oily not well seasoned and pizza not crispy. The courgette frutti was good. I’ve had better in Chelsea and Fulham and not necessarily more expensive.
We had been looking forward to going to this restaurant for date night for a while. Excellent food which did not disappoint on all accounts. For starters we had scallops, a generous selection of meats and calamari. Steak medallion main course and truffle spaghetti continued to blow us away, not to mention the chocolate fondant and tiramisu to finish. Excellent service too. Thank you for a wonderful evening and we will be back soon!
We had a double date here and everything about this restaurant was great! Food was lovely, service was so great and you can tell this family-run restaurant has loyal customers who keep coming back. Definitely my new fav restaurant in London. Never change!!
Been to this restaurant many times, the food has always been incredible. Very relaxed and unpretentious vibe, great service, reasonable prices. My mother left her mobile phone and when I called the next day the manager had kept hold of it and returned it to me.
Great local restaurant. Friendly staff. Nice décor. Lovely, well presented food with a great choice of desserts.
It's the best local Italian in London. The food is always delicious and the service is exceptional. Fantastic family run feel about the place and lovely ambience too.
Great food lovely staff. Definitely will be back one day
Great food, excellent service, warm atmosphere - good old fashioned fun. We will most definitely be back. Just wish we'd found the place sooner !
Honestly the best Italian restaurant in Balham!
Throughly enjoyed myself here on a Saturday evening. Even though the restaurant is on the smaller side, it never felt cramped. There is a good selection of food and after recently coming back from Gozo, didn't feel out of place from any of the food I experienced there.
We take everyone who visits to Ciullõsteria. My cousin, a foodie, nearly cried with joy after tasting the black truffle pasta, I can't blame her, it's magnificent. As usual, the staff were helpful and friendly and lovely.
This is an amazing restaurant. It has tremendous style and the food is the best Italian we have ever had. We come as often as we can, but if we lived locally we'd be regulars that's for sure. The staff are wonderful, warm, welcoming, friendly and attentive.
Great food, great service overall great experience!
My favourite Italian restaurant in London! Didn’t expect it to be so busy on a Thursday but goes to show how great the food is
