I was taken here for a surprise Birthday treat and what a treat! There are four professional opera singers, two men, two women, who burst into song whilst acting as your waiters and waitresses. The food is good, although not great but this is far surpassed by the quality and entertainment from the singers. They sing all your favourite arias... More

The food was no doubt fantastic but very small portions and therefore left feeling hungry. Atmosphere was good with the signing waiters and performances. Very entertaining. Little too loud when performing otherwise lovely. Kind staff Wouldn't say the greatest value for money but enjoyable

The staff in this restaurant varied quite significantly. Some were incredibly sweet, the others quite rough. At the beginning there was some confusion with our order which was not too complicated. The food was good. The rabbit roulade was cold bit yum, the gluten free pasta was normal nice pasta, however the dessert - panna cota - was tasteless, which... More

Having arranged to see a matinee in London last Thursday, I booked a table at Bel Canto. We arrived at 7.30 and were met by lovely, friendly staff. Having ordered some drinks, we had a look at the menu. The menu is lmited to five choices for each course, but having said that, it was still difficult to decide, with... More

We were staying just around the corner and found it by accident but it was a good accident. If you are in the mood for a good Italian then pay it a visit

This was our first visit to Bel Canto. I'd heard about the Opera but nothing prepared me for the performances we had the pleasure of listening to. The fact that you could then talk to the singers and their knowledge of the songs was amazing. Thanks to all who make it such a special event!

All too often a "themed" restaurant has poor food and even poorer service, but not Bel Canto. My companion and I had an excellent evening, almost three hours long of opera and good food. The young singers/servers are so superb, and great actors as well. Pricey, yes, but well worth spending our last evening in London at Bel Canto! Plan... More

We were at the Bel Canto on Saturday to celebrate my birthday and we had the best night that we have had in a very long time. The atmosphere was terrific and everyone interacted with one another and the singing.....oh it was fantastic. When the waiters and waitresses started singing it was so wonderful it was spellbinding to have them... More
