Description: Perched along Duke Street in the heart of London's West End, Bella Italia...
Perched along Duke Street in the heart of London's West End, Bella Italia Duke Street is a top spot for affordable Italian dining. With a handful of the capital's major theatres close by, pre theatre diners flock to this branch of Bella Italia for a tasty meal before the show. Dishes such as Penne Marco Polo (duck in plum sauce served atop penne pasta) or Pollo Cacciatore (chicken breast topped with mozzarella and smoky bacon and tomato sauce) feature on an extensive menu. Round off with desserts such as Mascarpone Cheesecake served with red berry compote. Bella Italia offers something for all tastes and is very well priced for this part of the capital.

I have to admit our Tesco vouchers were my motivation to visit this restaurant after visiting Madame Tussauds. We pre booked our table on the morning of our visit and were not chastised for arriving about half of an hour late due to our visit to the museum lasting longer. Our waiter had personality, attended to our every need with... More

My daughter wanted to eat at Bella Italia on our last evening in London. We went in before the dinner rush and the place was less than half full. There was no one to greet us and after 5 minutes or so, I sat down at a table. I guess I broke some unknown rule that warranted an extremely rude... More

We arrived early for our booking but were welcomed and sat outside as it was sunny. The restaurant wasn't busy but service was fairly slow which suited us but not good if you are in a hurry to catch a show. We both had a cordial which was very refreshing. The Lasagne al Forno and Gamberoni were both delicious and... More

I had already eaten at this place. This time they have just refurbished the place. It looks lighter and cozy. Congratulations for the new environment.

This place is located near Selfridges department store. I dropped by for a quick lunch and ordered soup of the day which was Zuppa Del Giorno, a white creamy looking soup which was good.

As we walked into the restaurant, we were informed that they had no toilets available to customers, and 'is this ok?' - in retrospect, we should have said no! Unfortunately, the service was very slow (we waited over an hour for our main courses) the food was undercooked in most respects - chewy pasta, hard chips and doughy pizza. We... More

We had a nice lunch here while doing a bit of shopping on Oxford Street. Reasonably priced and our meals were tasty. The staff were friendly enough, my only criticism would be that people who came in long after us received their main courses while we were still waiting for our starter (which was only a garlic pizza bread).

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
