    The food at Bellota is consistently excellent. Although it is a short menu, there is a lot of variety, and the advice on wines was excellent. Glad to see it busy on Saturday.

    Small cosy restaurant with a fantastic wine selection and the service was outstanding. Pricing is a bit on the high side but would be ok for a special occasion.

    Menu and wine list were full of good choices as always. Servings were generous. Stand out dishes were croquettes with nduja and Gorgonzola and Spanner crab spaghettini.

    Extremely happy with food and service but we were in the courtyard near the toilets and a rather unpleasant sewer smell wafting every now and then.

    Outstanding, we have eaten at Bellota quite a few times, our local and tonight they just nailed it. From the always attentive and knowledgeable service to the best dishes we have had in some time.
