Found along Irving Street, just off Leicester Square, Bella Italia is a prime destination for well priced Italian dining in the West End. Close to the numerous theatres, shops and sights of Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square, this Irving Street branch is a lively establishment. Tourists tend to make up a large majority of customers at this Bella Italia, all there to enjoy the excellent value menu. You could start with a dish of buffalo mozzarella and tomato with fresh basil and olive oil followed by a delicious baked chicken breast topped with mozzarella and smothered in a smoky bacon and tomato sauce. Bella Italia is always a good choice and this Irving Street branch always a busy one.

Gemütlicher Italiener / Cozy restaurant

***English review below*** Für London günstiger Italiener, gute Lage, einladende Atmosphäre. Essen sehr lecker, große Auswahl, auch Low Fat Pizzas. Along the conditions in London, low priced Italian restaurant. Inviting atmosphere, nice food, a great offer, even low fat pizzas.

Visited here last night for my boyfriends 21st birthday. The restaurant were informed of this when I made the booking but gave us a very cramped table and poor service. Had run out of all draught beer and gave little attention. Food was good though, shame about the shabby restaurant and unfriendly staff.

This used to be so good! It`s so hard to find reasonably priced restaurants in London and a year ago this was a good find. It`s had a "makeover " which has cleared away all the lovely old artifacts and replaced it with meaningless tat. They have also added too many tables so every time you get up, you scrape... More

A fairly good selection for both children and adults alike. We had a booking but people were turning up all of the time and tables were found for them. Due to nice weather some could eat outside.

We use this restaurant often so know it's good food. Must admit nothing changed here the food was delicious. There is a but a big BUT, the service was disgraceful, none of the staff seemed to be organised, the manager pulled a face behind a customers back. Not sure I'd visit this venue again 😒

The food was very nice and reasonably priced. Right in the heart of theatre land. The service was very good, friendly polite staff. I would eat here again.
