At Bellenie’s Osteria on Hayes’ Bourne Way, a touch of Italian dining is brought to Greater Bromley, with tapas-style dishes served up in an elegant setting alongside a long list of fine wines and cheeses specially imported from Italy. London may have no shortage of Italian eateries, but hidden away in Bromley, Bellenie’s Osteria is a diamond in the rough with their exquisite takes on Italian classics – we recommend booking a table here in advance.
After devoting her time spent in Italy to learning everything there is to know about regional Italian cuisine, the chef now aims to share her passion for Italian food back home in London by serving up authentic dishes at Bellenie’s Osteria in the Hayes neighbourhood of Bromley. At this sophisticated restaurant on Bourne Way the menu is changed seasonally to incorporate seasonal produce, but you will find some of the most popular dishes on the menu all year long. Options include coppa wraps, fennel-cured pork slices wrapped around rocket and sunblush tomatoes, and a selection of charcuterie meats like sopressata, a spicy salami with chili flakes, and a range of flatbread pizzas.
With the idea of choosing two or three plates each and then sharing them at the table amongst friends, you can take advantage of the massive array of appeasing options available. Of course, no true Italian dining experience would be complete without a bottle of great wine and you will find an extensive menu of red, white and rose wines sourced from Italy. Attracting a crowd from all over London, making a reservation at this popular Bromley restaurant is wise.
Please note: group bookings of 20 or more people please contact the restaurant.
If you love seafood then Wednesday is a must ! Along with a warm and friendly service a very enjoyable evening was had by all. (P.S. Do linger for an after dinner chat and cocktail at the welcoming bar !!)
Fantastic food, service and atmosphere! From arrival and cocktails at the bar, to being shown to the table and served recommended and lovely food how could it not be lovely! Will be back soon!
Their true menu is better than the one online. It's a small restaurant so would definitely book in advance. The food is delicious and service is good. Will be going back.
What a delightful little place. Although not so little as they have a room downstairs. The food was refreshingly different and the owner was delightful.
Wow great food lovely wine. Super friendly staff which made it into a great evening for us. The Pea and mint ravioli was delicious, The spicy sausage cooked in red wine was a real winner and the lamb fillet on a bed of rocket with garlic mayo was superb!
Tried hard and what we had was lovely, but we're out of stock for a lot of things and only had one choice of dessert. Booking also didn't get to them so they were surprised to see us. I guess from the empty room that happens a lot.
Excellent food and service. Hayley is the chef and clearly knows her stuff. Everything cooked on the premises and is delicious. Small choice of dishes but that's a positive.
A great night out, delicious food and wine, very friendly and attentive staff. Will tell our friends about Bellenie's and we are looking forward to eating there again.
Fantastic local Italian restaurant with amazing food. Small but really interesting and varied menu which had something for everybody. I highly recommend it and will be returning soon.
The food was very good but I was a bit disappointed with the basement seating area. It was quite dark and the stairway was very narrow. Quite quirky but not for me.
