Having wandered around aimlessly in Soho with a group of 8, trying to find a place that would let us in, just for some drinks, we ended up at Bar Italia. The music is usually decent, however crowd can be mixed. Generally not a bad place though, as 'entry fee' can be negotiated with the bouncer and he ended up... More

Stopped here for a restorative coffee after a boozy lunch - amazing macchiato, (so good to have proper coffee tasting coffee and not the fruity over thought syrupy 'coffee' that seems to be 'on trend' at the moment) gorgeous custard tarts and fantastic service! Beautifully authentic, very unpretentious - even had Italian MTV on in the background! Can't wait for... More

Original Italian coffee shop in Soho, London. Refreshing alternative to chains. 70s decor. Pricey but recommended.

One of the oldest (if not the oldest) coffee bars in Soho. Opened 1949 I believe and still run by the same family. Superb coffee, amazing interior. I only wish it was on the other side of the street to catch the sun on a Sunday morning. But I can live with that. Long live Bar Italia!

Stopped here for a tea before a show at the Phoenix Theatre. Not bad prices for London. Tea was very good and service was very quick.

It is a great stop for coffee lovers. You can taste the real coffee and have a nice snack in this authentic Italian bar in Soho. Small and not very big but always crowded with people from all nationalities. Also you can hear waiters shouting out loud between them asking if there is enough stock or if the delivery has... More

Bar Italia in Soho is a place visited mostly by italian people, who love to gather there especially during the italian footbal matches which are always broadcasted live! The coffee is good, overall a very simple place but guaranteed you'll love it!

As we sat sipping our lattes outside Bar Italia we asked ourselves, why is anyone at Cafe Nero opposite? The coffee here is very good. You can sit outside or in the classic looking inside, either way, this is the place to go in Soho for good coffee. £3 will get you a latte and it is well worth the... More
