The Shaftesbury Avenue branch of Bella Italia is ideally placed for a dinner before or after the show – it’s located within a few minutes’ walk of some of the West End’s most iconic theatres. With its revitalised colourful interior and outside dining space, it provides the perfect opportunity to experience a touch of Italian romance in the midst of bustling London.

Family is central to the Italian way of life, and this is reflected in Bella Italia’s welcome extended to all ages, with children especially catered for. But there is plenty of scope in the extensive menu for an intimate meal for two, with sophisticated dishes like the Abruzzo Agnello Tagliatelle – a slow-cooked lamb in red wine ragu – not to mention the decadent classic desserts. And the antipasto misto board is ideal for romantic sharing.

As you’d expect from an Italian spot, there’s an exceptional list of top-notch wines, many from smaller producers, and all picked by a Master of Wine. It’s all calculated to put you in the perfect mood for soaking up the heady atmosphere of Piccadilly, Soho and Covent Garden – when you can tear yourself away.
