Charmingly unique, Bellaria Restaurant and Wine Bar in Fitzrovia is a must for those tired of the same typical Italian dining experience.
From street level Bellaria looks like a simple Italian restaurant with a welcoming atmosphere. The best seats in the house are by the wide windows where you can sit and watch the world go by.
However, a few steps below and guests are transported to a whole other world. Bellaria’s basement is straight out of a fairytale – its bare stone walls, with their arches, nooks and crannies complemented by chandeliers, mirrors, and low lighting, enhance the atmospheric ambience. It is the ideal setting for romance and a real surprise to everyone who discovers it.
Sophisticated and contemporary, our menu makes good use of authentic Italian ingredients to produce elegant and creative dishes ranging from pastas and risottos to steaks and fish. To complement our delicious food we have created a long list of excellent wines.

Fantastic restaurant. Lovely romantic dining area downstairs. The service was the right balance of attentiveness without being overbearing. They even gave us a Grappa at the end for free! Good selection of wines and we found a really nice crisp and dry bottle (forget the name) with a little assistance.

Friendly, helpful service. Unsophisticated Italian food, mostly tasty but some dishes (including the signature pasta) disappointing.

Excellent, well cooked food, fresh ingredients and a very friendly welcome. Highly recommended. I’ve been as a large group with family and a smaller group with friends and the experience was just as good both times.

What can I say? Astonishing could give an idea. Cosy and warm ambient, the service is so nice and friendly, just perfec! The wine selection is so broad, we went for an amazing, rich and bodied Chianti. Win! The food is absolutely fantastic. The beef Carpaccio is so tasty and juicy, the seabream absolutely yummy. Anything else? The complimentary limoncello at the end is the perfect finish for a proper class Italian cuisine experience in central London ! Thanks guys! 5 stars experience! ;)

Seems very good value with the Open Table offer. Good service and excellent food. However restaurant adds excessive charges that are not on menu e.g.£3 for bread; £3 for a few olives which makes the value of the offer much less appealing. However a nice restaurant that seems always busy, which is a good sign.

Lovely restaurant, we ate in the 1st floor dining room. It got busy by 1pm on the Sunday we were there, you can see it was popular with family groups. The food and wine we spot on, we both had a seafood pasta and there was no complaints...I would be happy to return.

This restaurant is perfect if you are looking for a nice relaxed dining experience, which is not pretentious but instead focused on great service and great food. The meal was incredibly tasty- simple but authentic. The service was brilliant, with the manager being very generous, attentive and easy going

I have been to this restaurant several times, and I keep wanting to go back.
I have lived in Italy and would definitely say that this restaurant is authentic, and a taste of northern Italy in London. It's not particularly cheap compared to some other restaurants, but definitely affordable, and totally worth it. The dishes are fresh, well-presented, and they taste absolutely lovely. The decor is quite smart but relaxed, the atmosphere's great, the staff are friendly and the wine list is very nice too - definitely a place to go to to enjoy good food and drink in nice surroundings!

Had a lovely meal here with friends. The food was delicious (though the starters quite pricey), the service was excellent and the wine really good. We had 50% off food which made the meal much more reasonable. The only slight downside was the roadworks going on outside, which were extremely loud when the door was opened! That said I'll definitely go here again if the deal is available in future!

Pre theatre dinner. Wonderful taste of Italy where we holiday every year. This is a great restaurant for wonderful authentic Italian food. I have been going to Italy for 22 years now. Until recently felt that Italian cuisine never really matched that in Italy. This place proves unequivocally that has now been addressed. Highly recommend Bellaria, fantastic in all respects.

We had a great time in Bellaria restautant! We went for dinner for two on Friday night and we found the food and the service outstanding!
Food was good quality and served with a smile. Starters were amazing, and I definitely recommend the meat board to share: a nice selection of meats and cheese, well presented and huge!
The lamb shank and the rissotto were good too.
Service was first class. Really friendly Italian staff, we felt we were in Italy...."BELISSIMO!" :)
We would definitely return.

There are a few good restaurants around Great Titchfield street. Bellaria is one of them. Run exclusively by Italians, or so it seems. The food is very tasty, well prepared and seved. The wine list is extensive and the selection is really nice

Expected more based on the reviews. Starter of prawns was nice and so was my husbands main of Plaice. My pasta starter was not enjoyable- bland and oily. It was a shame. However they took this off the bill. Good choice of wine. Good location
