Offering pavement dining just around the corner from Leicester Square, Bella Italia Irving Street is a bustling Italian restaurant in the heart of London.
With such a major tourist attraction just around the corner (and Trafalgar Square and its museums only a short walk away), this Bella Italia has a cosmopolitan feel to it.
However, the food is distinctly Italian with pizzas and pasta featuring heavily. To start there is a range of antipasti including tomatoes and mozzarella and the ever popular bruschetta. And to finish you'll find it hard to choose between the chocolate mousse, banoffee Italian-style, lemon tart and more. Children are not forgotten either, with their own menu and free kids' pack.
In a London area where restaurants can be rather expensive, the Irving Street Bella Italia offers amazing value for money for its excellent location.

Was good. They seemed a bit stretched as it was two waiters at the time but they did well. The food was good and so was the environment.

Excellent customer service. Booked online - arrived 10 mins early and table was available for us. We sat inside and table was clean. Food was good although my daughter's pizza was a little cold - but waiter immediately took it back and heated it for us. Cost for 3 of us £75 - with a starter/main and one drink each (Stella cidre with ice was lush in the warm weather). No ramp for entrance (for wheelchair but only one step into the restaurant which my daughter could manage). Toilet was not accessible (a spiral staircase). Location excellent - a couple of minutes walk to Her Majesty's Theatre. Comfortable and pleasant experience - would definitely visit again.

Good menu choices.Service was slow,staff on duty did work hard though. There were six of us dining but desserts came out one at a time. Ice cream was more like sorbet.

The resturant and staff were all fine but I was disppointed that 2 of the veggie options online are not veggie on the actual menu. I thought it was unique to one resturant but clearly its not. The online menu should reflect the actuall menu. Because of this we didn't bother with starters.

Been here loads of times. The meal this time went as good as before. Will go back as staff r friendly and polite even when rushed of their feet. Chef must have had an off day but no worries.
