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

As a "finale" to our five days in London, our family(four kids aged 17-23) spent the evening at Bel Canto. We enjoyed the intermittent arias sung by wonderfully professional opera singers punctuating the delicious dinner. For the price, I would have preferred slightly more generous portions(we are big eaters) and for the sake of the kids, a very brief introduction... More

This was recommended to us by our daughter and we were very pleased that we went. The entertainment was great with frequent operatic renditions from the waiters / waitresses. I am not an opera goer but have to say that I though the quality of the singing was excellent. There was also a chance for some audience participation. The food... More

Not knowing what to expect it came as a surprise that the waiters and waitresses were the entertainment. They served the meals and drinks and in between sang fantastically , pieces from operas. What wonderful singers the two men and two ladies were accompanied by an accomplished pianist. The menu was varied and very acceptable, resulting in a spectacular evening.
