Restaurant description

Right on the corner of Leicester Square, Bella Italia Cranbourn Street offers the chance to dine in comfort whilst watching the activity going on in the square.

Set halfway between Piccadilly Circus and Covent Garden, this central London Italian restaurant is a popular choice with sightseers, theatregoers and those hoping to catch a glimpse of a celebrity attending a premiere at the Leicester Square cinemas. If warm enough you can sit on the pavement, otherwise there are 2 floors inside for informal dining.

The Bella Italia menu offers a range of pasta dishes, risotto, salads and of course pizza. A good range of antipasti and desserts complete the experience. Set menus are also available and provide excellent value for money. To drink, there are Italian beers and wines, as well as spirits and soft drinks. To end your meal Italian-style, the Cranbourn Street Bella Italia also offers a selection of coffees including espresso and cappuccino.

    We had the set three course menu. The dishes were plentiful and tasty and really good value for money. The chocolate orange brownie was particularly yummy! Service was good.

    The restaurant is very cramped with too little space for comfort between tables. Service was also rather slow, so that although we'd booked for an hour and a half before our show was due to start, there was only time for one course.

    Waiters were very helpful and friendly. The food was OK, some pizzas were a bit burnt at the edges but his could have been because we were a table of 8, and they tried to deliver it all at once.

    the food was very good, I had the Salmon Limone, and reasonable price. For a restaurant in Leicester square (or anywhere else) very easy to get a reservation in the last minute. Was not too busy (in comparison with other restaurants around) but the service took forever!! Just to give an idea, 30minutes just to pay the bill. If you are not in a rush, I recommend!

    Food was lovely and waiters were very friendly. Service was slow for us upstairs as the restaurant was full with not enough staff to assist.

    Brilliant service and tasty food for a pre theatre meal. Could not find fault with anything and of course the position of the restaurant is great for getting to a variety of theatres

    Bella Italia is really a nice restaurant, I enjoyed it.. The food was nice.. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that me and friend had to wait so long before the food came.. We waited for half an hour.. Apart from that I would definetely recommend everyone to go there..
