About
One of two Bella Italias found along Queensway in central London, this particular branch can be found closer to the Westbourne Grove end. Offering an attractive pavement terrace to the front of the restaurant, perfect for al fresco dining and people watching at the same time, Bella Italia is an attractive proposition for a bite to eat Italian style. The menu is full of classic Italian dishes from pizza to pasta and grills to salads. Why not start with a delicious Formaggio Fritto (mozzarella, fontina and parmesan cheese in breadcrumbs, deep fried and served with a sweet red onion jam) and follow with a bowl of Spaghetti Gamberi (spaghetti with prawns, spicy Italian tomato sauce and a skewer of king prawns). The all Italian wine list offers a good selection of reds, whites and rosés and the dessert list ensures things are ended on a high.

Ok, so this was my 1st meal in the UK for several years. Cyprus restaurants don’t do Keto. I was amazed to walk into a pretty standard Italian pizza/pasta chain and be offered spiralised vegetables as well as a decent range of options for the Paleo/Keto/ Low Carb community. The menu was very carefully balanced. There were plenty of high carb traditional Italian options as well. No changes to offend the existing client base. Just enough change to bring in a new clientele as well. Congratulations are due.I had a garlic prawn starter which was excellent. The service was also way better than the average for a chain restaurant.

Myself and my 3 year old visit this restaurant regularly. He has the small children’s menu which is more than enough for him and they give him crayons and paper for colouring which he loves. The staff always make a fuss if my child and are so very attentive. I’ve never had a bad experience here with anything! Like I have said the staff are all so so friendly especially Sujoy, he is so pleasant and upbeat. We always look forward to our trips to this restaurant and would highly recommend it. Great value for money for great food and great service.

Sujoy, our waiter, was excellent. Very precise with our orders e.g. immediately asking about allergies and dietary preferences. Food was outstanding- left satisfied and not stuffed to the brim due to a generous yet not over-gorging serving. Highly recommend!!!!!!!!

We had breakfast which was average. We asked for extra bread and for two thin slices we were charged 1.90!. We tried dinner which was not worth it. Grilled chicken was dry and the chips were like the ones you have in a fast food restaurant. The pesto was bad. Pasta with boiled-like chicken and badly chopped onion and peppers and watery kind of pasta..quite blunt. The only great thing was the brownie which I highly recommend.

We came in without reservation but the waiter showed us a couple of table where we could sit. He gave us the drink and food menu but we waited 20 min for someone to come back to take the drink order. We ordered food at the same time as we didn't want to wait 20 more min to order it. Starters came to the table 30 min after taking the order, which already makes 40 min since we sat. Main dishes came 20 min after starters! Was very busy at the time so we did not complain because we have worked in hospitality, so we understand, but the quality of the food wasn't as expected either. We asked for the bill straight after we finished our mains. No service charge included but the waiter made sure we knew few times. When we put the cash out on the table, the waiter came to the table demanding to add tips, and if we do we must add 10% of the bill - we obviously did not leave any. As said before we both have worked in hospitality so getting tips is a huge deal, but always you must to give good service and never demand it.

Better than average but not "very good." Meals went to the wrong people, took a long time to come and seemed to be a confusion in the kitchen. Regardless, rating on taste and atmosphere. Atmosphere was great, and taste was around the "better than good" italian food. Had better, but had a lot worse.

We came here on our first night because we were staying nearby and had such a great experience that we came back another two times. The food was fresh and tasty and served really quickly. Our server, Sujoy, was lovely and really friendly and made us feel really welcome. This is what made us come back. He was great when my daughter’s ice cream had a chocolate sauce on it that she didn’t like. He asked a couple of times if she wanted it changed and she said she was ok. He could see she wasn’t enjoying it and gently said it was no problem to get her a fresh dessert, so he did and she really enjoyed it. Would definitely come back again.

I visited this restaurant with my daughter who was celebrating her 11th birthday. The service from the moment we walked in to the moment we left was exceptional. The waitress Roda was delightful and nothing was too much trouble for her, she even put a candle in my daughter's dessert and sang happy birthday to her. Would definitely return. Thank you. The food was delicious.

I travel to Bayswater a few times a year for two or three nights at a time, and Invariably eat here for one evening meal and a breakfast, (breakfast opening not available at the moment). I’ve never yet had a bad experience. Always a warm welcome, the food is always fresh and hot, the staff friendly and attentive. Although I’ve been there only probably 10 or 12 evenings in a couple of years, Sujoy still treats you like a weekly regular.

I visited twice on my visit to London as was very impressed by the friendliness of the staff and how fast the food was delivered. The only con I would say is that they take the drink menu off of you once you’ve ordered your first drink which was slightly strange as I may have wanted to order more throughout my meal. When I requested the drinks menu again on my second visit I was given one but nobody came to ask if I would like another drink until we were about to pay. Overall a good experience.

Went to Bella Italia for the first time. Was greeted and served by Rada and Laura who were two very lovely and friendly ladies. Service was great as well as the food, I was very impressed with the customer service, they made sure to check any dietary requirements which is always very important. Would definitely recommend!

I cannot compliment this particular restaurant enough for their service and food. The food was just beautiful, faultless. As were the drinks. But I wanted to write the review based more on their measures towards COVID. Over the months I've become quite a nervous person around others so I've been a little wary about visiting restaurants, pubs, hotels, etc.. the lady who served us was so polite and kind. How she managed to consistently keep as much of a distance from other whilst serving food and drinks to table is just a talent these hardworking members of staff have had to quickly adapt to. Couldn't of been more comfortable and couldn't of enjoyed the meal anymore than we did! The lady who served the table of 2 by the door on Saturday evening around 8pm is a credit to the team. I wish I got her name as she deserves some recognition.

Terrible service, incorrect orders and arrogant staff. Asked for coke and did not receive, asked for a pizza with sausage and brocoli and only received the brocoli. At the end they deducted 2£ for the wrong pizza, never received the coke and still charged for service… Understand the hours were late but the rude staff made the experience extremely unpleasant. Do not recomend at all.

I would have given it a 0 if I could and should be allowed to. I came in at around half 11 to have coffee and tea outside, the gentleman not in uniform said they are not taking any new customers as they are getting ready for lunch and he was serrving by himself. Refused even only wanting coffee or tea. HOWEVER, as I was waiting, 5 more customers came inside, and were seated inside and were served, even though he CLEARLY stated otherwise. The icing on the cake is that my white girlfriend went in and asked the same thing, and she was served. This is the second time this has happened with this gentleman, I cannot help but feel it is personal and a race thing.

What a painful service experience we had at Bella Italia on Queensway. The place was busy on a Monday evening for dinner. Waiting became the norm at Bella Italia. We waited to be seated, waited for our orders, waited for the meal, waited for the bill, waited to pay. Two hours at this restaurant could have been boiled down to no more than 45 minutes. There was one poor lady doing everything including cleaning tables, and she just could not keep up with taking orders, serving orders, clearing tabs, and cleaning tables. Customers took the brunt of the lack of service by excruciating waits. The food was decent and the value was good. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this restaurant because of the terrible service.
