Not sure how everyone got these nice looking meals on this page, but our pizzas were just ok, minimal cheese and 3 small pieces of basil. The meatball app was good and filling, but just run of the mill Italian.

Handy spot just north of the bustle of Covent Garden. Good menu variety. We enjoyed the carbonara pizza and the pasta dishes.

I had good vegetarian pizza at Bella Italia, my kids had ham pizza which they didn't care for. Guess that the Italian style ham didn't quite suit their taste buds. My veggie pizza, on the other hand, was good, had a nice crust and good...More

What an awful visit. I had to ask for a table upon entering, the meet and greet guy literally could not have cared less but he let me know he couldn't take my order (he was also wearing an unironed shirt, noticeably so) . Eventually...More

Description
Boasting an enviable location in the very centre of Leicester Square, surrounded by some of the capital's biggest cinemas, Bella Italia is a haven for visitors to the area who are looking for an affordable yet good quality meal. With Piccadilly Circus, Soho and Covent Garden at its fingertips, this popular Italian restaurant is always buzzing with hungry sightseers and shoppers. The menu is full of tasty, traditional Italian dishes such as the baked chicken breast topped with mozzarella cheese and smoky bacon and tomato sauce or the classic antipasti selection with smoked Italian ham, salami, bruschetta, mozzarella and olives. Tiramisu is a must try for dessert, light sponge soaked in coffee and Marsala wine layered with mascarpone and zabaglione cream and dusted with cocoa powder.
