An easy reccomend to anyone interest in great food
our first visit to this restaurant. that’s exactly what we are missing in central London. really excellent and simple food, like in Italy. relaxed atmosphere. incredibly correct prices (even wine .....). we will be going back as long as we live in London !! thank you Chef!
Fantastic food, lovely service and all for a reasonable price. Would highly recommend!
As always, a friendly welcome, excellent food and quite superb Italian wines that you just don't see anywhere else. Great value too
Dont normally leave reviews but this place deserves it. Came mid week for a low key anniversary dinner and cannot fault it. Perfect ambience, attentive service, and delicious food. All in all a wonderful experience and will be back again !
Love this place so much. Our local Italian and even if it wasn't local, I'd make sure it was anyway. The food, the people it's perfect!
Such delicious food and wine! Thank you for a wonderful evening
Amazing as usual, outstanding food and great service.
Our dinner group experienced racism from the staff.
The food was decent, but sadly their treatment towards us ruined the experience.
Great food, service and they were great with our kids as we went for an early dinner with our daughters, one of whom was celebrating her birthday. Staff couldn’t have been any better
We have been before and keep coming back, lovely atmosphere, good food, good service and well priced what more could you want.
Delicious, authentic and great value Italian food. The menu is plentiful, varied and my only negative was that there were no marked vegan options on the menu - which would have been helpful!
What an amazing gem of a place. The food was amazing, as well as the atmosphere and ambiance. My wife had a salad with steak, the best tender steak we’ve tasted from a restaurant in a while. The pasta did not disappoint either! Flavourful!! Good house wines, red and white, great homey Italian feel. Amazing dessert as well. It was quite busy for a Tuesday night. All round, a wonderful date night and perfect choice in destination.
Lovely meal and friendly service. Wine available by the glass at very reasonable price. Sardines for starter were excellent.
Centrally located this restaurant serves authentic North Italian food. Good portions and delicious.
Excellent service and a good wine list
Service and food good, very big portions bu able to take a doggy bag. Very helpful waitresses. Will definitedly return.
Authentic Italian food , with large portions. The staff are very friendly and recognised us even though this was only our second visit. Obviously a lot of Italian food comes with cheese, but as someone who is allergic to it I would have liked more non-cheese options. The premises are small, so the tables are very close together, which makes it very noisy. Not, perhaps, the place for an intimate meal. It is quite expensive - expect to pay £50 a head if you have a bottle of wine with your meal. Nonetheless, the food is very good and the staff ensure a friendly ambiance, so I would definitely go again.
A relaxed but delightful meal in what is clearly a popular restaurant with well presented and really good food. Two of our group really enjoyed the calves liver and I enjoyed sea bass very much - both meat and fish served with a generous portion of lovely vegetables and we enjoyed an excellent bottle of Merlot wine and plenty of fresh water. Staff were welcoming and attentive without being obtrusive, making our evening very enjoyable indeed.
This is the third time we've been. As usual the food and service was excellent. I made an error with the OpenTable booking in that I booked for 2 when I meant 3. They still made an effort to seat us even though the restaurant was fully booked.
Such a lovely evening. Great food and great people.
Very friendly, authentic Italian restaurant. Portions large, food tasty - homemade tiramisu out of this world. Service is not included, so beware.
Love this place and it never disappoints. The food was delicious with very generous portions. It really was good value for money. The only gripe is that we would have preferred a different table. We didn’t raise this with the restaurant, so there is little room for complaint. We will return again very soon.
Some of the beat Italian I have ever eaten, really friendly staff and wonderful ambiance.
Vraiment formidable. Un réel italien, rare!.
Service efficace, attentif, mais détendu.
Un patron discret mais très présent, totalement dédié à sa cuisine authentique. Bonheur chez lui!
Amazing service and food! Have been before and would go again without a doubt. Unfortunately, there was a big party with about 10 kids and 6 adults with all of the kids down one end of the table, which we were unfortunate enough to be sat right next to. They were very loud and kept bumping into my chair (which was uncomfortable as I’m 8 months pregnant) but that wasn’t really the restaurants fault - I imagined they struggled too. Once the party left, about half way through our meal, the atmosphere was perfect!
Always excellent food & service and a good atmosphere
Usual excellent food served in a friendly and efficient manner
My husband and I have been going to Ciullõsteria for many years. Delicious food and wine...their pizzas are divine. Friendly and attentive staff. Lucky to have this place in our neighbourhood.
Had an absolutely fantastic New Year's Eve dinner and drinks at Ciullõsteria. The food, the staff, the drinks and the music was fantastic. Could not have asked for a better way to ring in the new year!
Have been going there for years and never had a complaint yet,
Our first time at this restaurant and we really enjoyed the ambiance and service. When I asked to be moved due to feeling a draft, this wasn't an inconvenience. Nothing was too much. The food was delicious and plentiful; we enjoyed starters, mains and a dessert each. However, we couldn't finish our mains and asked for it to be packed for us to takeaway. The wine, Merlot 2009 made me shiver from the taste, a perfect accompaniment to our meal. The only disappointment is that we'd not found this lovely restaurant sooner. We'll definitely make more visits in 2020 and beyond.
Good food, friendly and unfussy service, just like a local place in Italy. Simple, good food, fairly priced including the wine list. Good cocktails. Welcomed 2 year old and an autistic child with empathy and kindness.
Some of the most authentic Italian cuisine I have eaten in the UK. Simply delicious. Quick service and friendly atmosphere/staff – it ticks all the boxes.
I always really enjoy the food here. Three of us enjoyed everything of six dishes and the lamb dish was both generous and succulent.
The place has a great atmosphere but when full the type and tone of the music needs to be adjusted to aid conversation ...
Another wonderful experience at this exceptional restaurant
I love this restaurant. The food is always very good and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.
Still my favourite in Balham! Accommodate gluten free really well, food is always lush, wine is decent and the team there are the best!
Delicious food and lovely staff. My friend found her dish contained chillies which do not agree with her and the dish was replaced quickly with no fuss.
Amazing food and Staff are awesome!
An absolute favourite in Balham. All the food is freshly prepared and high quality. No skimping on portions either. Highly recommended.
