A great find - much better than chain restaurants

Wow - what a find. We stumbled on Caio Bella after not wanting to return to Pizza Express after average meal there. CB is head and tails better in every sense - nice waiting staff, top quality, freshly cooked food and authentic. We have been back a few times since, and make it a regular stop... read more

My girlfriend have reserved a table for dinner. We both love italian food and have our favorite dishes. At this italian restaurant we had probably one of our worse italian meal ever. Pasta was overcooked and wine was horrible. Need to improve dramatically.

Reviews don't reflect reality at this restaurant. After reading reviews decided to try. Visited on a weekday at night, it was basically empty apart from our table and another couple that didn't seem to be satisfied as well. I ordered a pizza and my wife ordered pasta. We are from South of Italy so we know how pizza should taste,... More

I go to this restaurant on a regular basis as live in Romford and it's my absolute favourite! A little bit of Italy in the middle of Romford with staff that can not do enough for you and fantastic vegetarian options!! The pastas are incredible, big portions and lovely fresh salads!! It's got lovely Italian music playing and creates a... More

Visited this restaurant upon reading other reviews. Me and my partner visited on a Saturday evening, the restaurant was fairly empty at 8.30pm. We was greeted upon arrival and seated immediately. We ordered food and it arrived within good time. The portions are large and the food very nice. My only concern was the service once the food was delivered,... More

My husband and I often have lunch in Romford and usually opt for Zizzis. We happened upon Ciao Bella and weren't disappointed. My lunch was worthy of top marks but my husband's order wasn't exactly right. His calamari starter was very fresh and delicious but too big. His pizza was ordered without olives but olives came and with spicy chicken... More

As usual, I was accompanied by my beautiful partner Anna. So far, 3 visits this month and we've not been disappointed being seated on arrival. The food is excellent; hot, well presented, and HUGE portions. The menu is very varied with something to suit all palates. A big plus for Ciao Bella is that they cater for Celiacs; an autoimmune...

Really lovely staff, very reasonable prices, and lots of delicious food. Been here several times, and every time I love it, great for friends and family. And romantic. Highly recommend.
