    Booked a table for 6 online using my groupon codes for afternoon tea. All confirmation went through perfectly. On arrival in London I called Bella Italia at 10.45 to see if I could change our table to 12.30, to be told they couldn’t access the online server as the manager wasn’t yet in. I then called back at 11.30 and I asked if I could change the table and reminded them that it was for 6 people for afternoon tea. They confirmed that the change was fine. I then called at 12.40 as we had got stuck in traffic I was worried that they wouldn’t hold our table. Again on the phone I reminded them that there were 6 of us and it was for afternoon tea. On arrival we were seated and staff were polite. When it came to ordering I told them again for the third time that it was afternoon tea and they seemed confused, I showed them the voucher and the groupon add from my phone to which a waiter went and spoke to the chef. He returned asking to see what was included, he took a picture of it and went on his way. He apologised for all the confusion and bought out our afternoon tea, explaining that we were the first afternoon tea customers. Once all of the confusion was over and done with we were able to enjoy our afternoon tea which had good presentation, tasted yummy and had a good selection. In the groupon add it said that we had a choice of pizza slices, this wasn’t the option but the pizza that we had was lovely. On leaving there was a problem with paying as it was pre paid for it was saying there was still £18 to pay but was quickly sorted by management.

    Good location, shown to our table quickly. Excellent choice of food, very good service even though the place was busy. Attentive Staff who keep checking if everything was okay or if we needed anything else.

    Enjoyed our meal although I would have preferred ice cream in a dish not a cardboard cup! Waitress was friendly and helpful in spite of pressure of busy restaurant.
