Anytime we happen to be around Leicester Square we always pick this place. It has become a bit of a mantra. The food is always quick, tastes great and the staff is super friendly and happy to help. Would be coming back soon again.

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.
