  • La Ballerina: Super Restaurant in a great location

    by ccboreham Written Jul 3, 2012

    This is the best Italian restaurant I have been to a long while. Forget Zizzi's or Pizza Express- if you're anywhere near Covent Garden, La Ballerina is a must! The food was delicious and reasonably priced and the staff were all extremely helpful. It is understandably busy at the weekend due to its location near the Opera House, but this would not put me off returning for another great meal.

    Favorite Dish: The sea bass was lovely- very fresh and cooked to perfection. The mushrooms and prawns made a great accompaniment.

  • La Ballerina: La Ballerina Bellissimo

    by ryanwillis Written Jul 3, 2012

    I can only say that this is a truly awesome restaurant. Having been here a few times - I can say that the food is great, the service is excellent and the value is top draw! I'm not going to go on and on - but I dont often write reviews on restaurants! The thing that really impressed me was that I was offered my drink immediately on my arrival and the staff were always to hand when my wife I had nearly finished our current drinks! I hate waiting for a drink or having to ask! I would recommend La Ballerina to anyone who is in the area - well done and thanks! :)

    Favorite Dish: It has to be the steak - it was cooked to perfection (both times!!), there was zero fat on my cut, it was sizzling as it arrived and the portion was large (like me!).

    La Ballerina: Standard Italian but useful place

    by ChrsStrl Written Jul 26, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A standard Italian restaurant this is handy for the Opera House (Covent Garden) - or Bow Street nick if you have other priorities! - it is reasonable and a little less hectic than the general tourist run.

    Favorite Dish: Nothing special
