“Decent Italian Coffee”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Traditional Italian bar in the heart of Soho serving decent Italian coffee (rated by a very hard to please Italian). If you care about your coffee more than the surroundings then it's worth a visit.

“Best Coffee In London”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

We were visiting London for 3 days and literally hunted for good coffee. Many of the coffee shops in London are commercial chains and we really wanted a more local but fab coffee. We stumbled upon Bar Italia on a Saturday morning, took a seat outside, ordered 2 cappuccinos and instantly relaxed into the London scene. It was a nice street to people watch on and a few other cafes to relax in. I never ate here but the food was not a bad price for London. I would certainly come back again. Highly recommended.

“Classic part of Soho”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

I've been here after dates and I"ve been here on a Sunday and love it each time. The staff are friendly and a great buzzy atmosphere. So much is changing in Soho, and this feels like one of the few genuine venues left.

“The best cappuccino, espresso, and overall the best coffee in London!”
Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

It's the place to enjoy authentic Italian coffee in London, where tea culture leaves little room for a good cup of coffee. In bar Italia coffee is as it should be. It's not a fancy posh lux environment, but on a lovely Sunday afternoon sitting out at a table watching the interesting crowd of soho walking past your eyes is a mighty entertaining experience!
