Halfway along the Strand, in between Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden is the large Bella Italia Strand, complete with outdoor seating and modern decor inside.

With authentic Italian ingredients sourced from real Italian-family producers, the Bella Italia menu at London is filled with dishes to suit every appetite. Enjoy a delicious pizza, hand-stretched for a thin & crispy base, or one of their many pasta dishes, with fresh pasta produced by the Gaetarelli family near Lake Garda, and lasagne made in-house every day to a traditional Italian family recipe. The menu also features a selection of fresh salads, tasty Italian classics & family favourites from the grill.

Enjoy a complementing glass from Bella Italia's extensive wine list, or celebrate something special with a glass of Prosecco or a signature Italian cocktail, like the classic Aperol Spritz. Kids can also enjoy a tasty Italian feast from the kids menu at Bella Italia restaurant, with a trip to the gelato cart offering the perfect ending to any meal.

At the heart of the Strand, Bella Italia restaurant near Strand is a 3-minute walk from Charing Cross Rail Station.

    Food very good. Service good but a bit slow. The whole place is in need of refurbishment. Chairs in very bad state and we found chewing gum stuck under the table. Decor all very tired.

    Asked for the chicken with salad specifically saying no dressing please and it came with loads of dressing. However the waiter did ask if I wanted it changed but I had already started eating my Meal.

    There is a huge choice of restaurants in theatreland but this is right across the road from the Adelphi and is so convenient both for the theatre and Charing Cross station. Good dining and quick service.

    Nice setting but expect to wait in my opinion too long to get your main meal (an hour), all we had for a starter was a bread basket which took 25 mins to arrive. once food came it was very nice and cannot find fault with it at all.

    Staff were very friendly but based on waiting time I would not go back as it was not overly busy so dread to think how slow the food would be if it was more crowded.

    Bella Italia offer a good menu, with some traditional Italian dishes as well as the usual pasta and pizza offerings. There are some nice desserts available too. It is not "fine dining", but offers good value for money, with very nicely cooked food, and fast service.

    I love going to Bella Italia in the Strand. The staff are always cheerful but also very professional and very knowledgeable about all their dishes. I sometimes dine in the evening with family or sometimes I might pop in in my lunch hour and dine and find it very comfortable for dining alone.

    A busy restaurant with few staff. Food was not as good as previous meals in Bella Italia although the shot puds were great . Location excellent being in the Strand. Definitely book!

  • (((** 25 February 2017 by David Owen from London

    Most of the food was good (lamb shank and polpette), but friend who can be guaranteed to order carbonara when we go Italian was not impressed with the restaurant's version of the dish and two were not impressed with starters. Waiter was accommodating and helpful but an error in the starter order meant main course did not arrive until 75 minutes after we had arrived, although restaurant was not that busy with downstairs area where we were sitting being almost empty. We enjoyed our meet up despite these glitches, but restaurant could have got a four if not for errors (could not find pre-booking details as well as order error) and delay. Price was in line with expectations for area and menu.

    A good location prior to theatre visits. Friendly staff and prompt service. My risotto was excellent.
