Great Local

Always go there to eat as i work just opposite. Always so tasty and food is fresh. My favorite is the chicken pasta with the carrots and courgette. So delicious. Also a great alternative grabbing a pizza takeaway on the way home from work.

Went last night with a large group, while you expect there to be some delay it was ridiculous. We waited 50 minutes for starters, then another hour for the main course. Nearly all the people on my table left at least half of the food which was bland and tasteless with zero presentation. Not one staff member smiled or enquired... More

I can't believe this restaurant has been on my doorstep all this time. Food, hospitality and ambience was great. Large portions and extensive menu. Will definitely be a returning!

Came here a few weeks ago with my boyfriend after seeing the good reviews on here and was not disappointed. Staff are very friendly, portion sizes are massive and the food was a delight. On top of that we had a complimentary drink on the house. Would recommend to anyone

Arriving at Ciao Bella somewhat late in the day on Thursday evening, after a long evening engagement, my family and I expected, as with other establishments we had tried, to be shown the door. Nothing of the sort greeted us. Instead, we were welcomed with a friendly smile and shown a table without compucture. From then, the service in Ciao... More

Just left here and couldn't have been rushed anymore. For a group booking that included a huge service charge the attitude of the staff was terrible and rude! The food took ages to come out even though there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. Overall I can promise that I will never come here again. Food was uninspired and taste... More

Went here with a couple of friends on a Saturday evening and it was very busy and very noisy. I love most Italian food and was looking forward to ordering a lasagne. When served it was a stodgy cube sitting in a sauce filled dish with a most peculiar flavour that I can only describe as burnt bacon. When I... More

I have been guilty of walking past this restaurant since it's opening without considering a visit. I decided to give it a try and have now been back twice since. Lovely family run restaurant, fresh food cooked to order and friendly staff. Give this a try before automatically heading for one of the many chain restaurants in Romford. They also... More
