Description: The location of the Shaftesbury Avenue Bella Italia restaurant couldn't be better, with the Palace Theatre just a walk away on one side and the Gielgud Theatre just moments away to the other side. Nestled right in the heart of Soho, along one of the West End's most prominent streets, Bella Italia offers well priced good quality Italian dining. Starters include the a sharing antipasti board with cured meats from Italy followed by mains such as the slow cooked lamb shank or a crispy piza with a ripiena crust of real mozzarella and garlic butter. Don't forget the great value set menu either, great for pre-theatre diners.

Had a very ice pre-theatre meal. High standards, good food and a very good waitress. Even tried a new calzone pizza

This was a great find right next door to our hotel. The food was so good we visited two days in a row. The meatball panini was fab. The girl serving us was so friendly that she made the meal even more fun.

This is a nice Quite Restaurant despite being on Shaftesbury Lane. The food was very good and the service superbly great. this was a pre theatre show for us and we choose it because it was not far from the theatre and it was close to the tube station, each only a 3 minuet walk from each other.

We dined here after a show in Soho. The staff were actaully Italian. They made us feel very comfortable and we openly conversed in Italian. Appetizers delivered in short order, and dinner to follow. Wow. Everything was fresh and beautiful to look at. The highest praise I can give any chef is that you can taste all of the ingredients in the dish. This was true of our starters and mains. My wife and I were continuously sampling of each others plates. In an area blanketed with eateries this is a very good choice for italian.

On Wednesday 4th June at 5.30 we arrived at this restaurant before going to the theatre. There were 8 of us and the waiter was efficient and pleasant-even joked with us. I had the Pollo Milanese and it was delicious. You also could enjoy a tasty meal in a short time. Thank you, Bella Italia.
