Description: Bella Italia on Wellington Street is found in the heart of Covent Garden, just minutes from The Strand and the London Transport Museum. Ideal for pre-theatre dinners, this Wellington Street branch of the ever popular Bella Italia chain of Italian restaurants is just minutes away from a handful of the capital's major theatres. Enjoy the well priced set menu or choose from the wide and varied a la carte menu. Whichever, you are sure to find some delicious food such as the Spaghetti Gamberi (spaghetti with prawns, Italian tomato sauce and a skewer of king prawns) or the Pollo Cacciatore (baked chicken breast with mozzarella, smoky bacon and tomato sauce and roasted vegetables and new potatoes or salad and fries.

“Thumbs up for Bella Italia!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

After a evening out with friends in London and a walk around Covent Garden, we decided on Italian food for dinner and thought we would try Bella Italia. We received a friendly welcome, were sat a table straightaway and our waitress was nothing but attentive throughout our dinner. The atmosphere felt homely and relaxing with the traditional decor and mood lighting, making the experience very comfortable. The food was served quickly - my Lasagne Al Forno was beautiful and the Lava Cake was to die for! All in all a restaurant that provided a great service, friendly atmosphere and good affordable food that made for a wonderful evening. I would definitely recommend to anybody if you are in the area.

“Friendly but not relaxing”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

We booked in advance fearing huge numbers of pre theatre diners. Upon arrival our reservation could not be found however this was not a problem and we were seated at a central table. This proved a tad wearing as we were constantly adjusting our chairs to allow for arriving diners and passing waiters as the restaurant is a tad bijou. Cannot fault service here, very attentive, however the quality of food varied with overpriced meagre starters and evidence of main courses having been kept warmed in the kitchen. This is an excellent location for theatre land but there are better venues in this chain for a dining experience.

“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Went with a friend whilst on a visit to London. Have always been a fan of Bella Italia but last visit in January and now this one in March were not up to the usual high standard. The staff were overly busy and one of the two meals looked and tasted as though it had been reheated at least twice. Shame as the location is good so will give it one more chance and then switch to another similar restaurant nearby.
