We came to London for 5 days and came in to this restaurant twice. The food is amazing and so is the staff! Highly recommend it! If you ask me what to get, I’d say the calamari as a starter, calzone, and tiramisu!

As other posters have said the service here is so slow. Our waiter avoided making eye contact for about 15 mins. Eventually I called an older lady (possibly the owner) who took our order. Looking around the other diners who were in when we arrived...More

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Description
Bella Italia boasts a prime location along Old Brompton Road in the heart of London's upmarket South Kensington. Found just down the road from South Kensington tube station, Bella Italia offers affordable Italian dining in rustic bistro style surroundings. Decked out in the signature Bella Italia style and colours, this South Kensington branch is a well loved destination for those who don't want to make too much of a dent in their wallet. Tuck into classic Italian pizzas such as the Speck e Rucola (smoked Italian ham and rocket with smoked mozzarella) or delicious pasta dishes like the mushroom risotto with torn chicken breast. Desserts such as the tiramisu or the mascarpone cheesecake certainly end things on a high.
