Top 4 Italian Restaurants In Romford According To Our Team


Ciao Bella

Ciao Bella is a lovely little casual restaurant serving Italian cuisine. It’s a casual cosy place with excellent service and delicious food – and we love going there for lunch or dinner with friends or family. We are certain you will love Ciao Bella just as much as we do which is why we highly recommend you visit!

We highly recommend you start off with a Pate Della Casa (homemade chicken liver pate with bacon), Dough Balls (served with garlic butter), Bruschetta, or Brie Fritto (deep-fried brie with cranberry sauce)!

Our favourite main dishes include their Spaghetti e Polpette with homemade tomato sauce, garlic, basil, homemade meatballs, their Penne al Salmone (pasta with smoked salmon, cream), their Linguine alla Pescatore (with clams, mussels, seafood, garlic, wine, homemade tomato sauce)!

For dessert, we highly recommend their Bombolini (Italian doughnuts with cinnamon and sugar, served with chocolate sauce) and the Tartufo Bianco!

The next place on our list is an Italian coffee shop, however, they have pizza and pasta on their menu and we really enjoy their food so we couldn’t miss on featuring them on our list. They have even won the “Most Authentic Pasta Restaurant in East London” award! The interior is stylish, the service is excellent, and they also make their own pasta which is why it’s so delicious.

We love their Crema di Funghi Pasta (Mushrooms, Garlic, Onion, Cream Sauce), the Basil Pesto with Grana Padano Cheese, the Bolognese Spaghetti, and the Gamberoni Pasta with King Prawns, Chilli, Saffron, Herbs , White Wine Cream Sauce!

They also offer delicious pizza and homemade desserts that we highly recommend you try. We love their Panna Cotta and Tiramisu!

Frankie & Benny’s

Next on our list, we have an Italian-American themed chain restaurant with locations all over the UK, however, we will focus on the one in Romford. It’s a very popular place and you have probably already dined there, however, if this is the first time you are hearing about Frankie & Benny’s then definitely book a table!

Their menu consists of Italian and American comfort foods including burgers, hot dogs, pizza, and pasta.

We usually start off with their Mozzarella Sticks then move on to their delicious pasta dishes. Our favourites are the Arrabbiata Pasta (with tomato sauce, garlic, basil and mozzarella), the Chicken Carbonara, and their Frankie’s Classic Meatballs (pork and beef meatballs, tomato and Bolognese sauce, mozzarella, fresh basil)!
