About Us

La Ballerina is an Italian restaurant situated in the very heart of Covent Garden. We are right next door to the Royal Opera House on Bow Street and also only two minutes’ walk from the Covent Garden Underground station.

Our established traditional Italian restaurant will serve you classic dishes prepared in a customary way. Above all we do so at sensible prices leaving you feeling happy and satisfied.

Founded in 1999 La Ballerina has traded on its present style with a reputation for fine cuisine. We continue to draw in our loving customers time and time again. We remain determined to retain our community values and sense of history.

For that reason, La Ballerina staff are always proud to welcome people from across the globe with bidding smiles for all. However, a love of Opera is certainly not compulsory!

With our endearing respect for all Opera lovers we offer special menus; starters before, mains in the interval, and delicious deserts with coffee to follow. Please just ask and your favourite table will be reserved for you at these special times.

We also keenly embrace family outings. Whether it be the Lion King, Mamma Mia! or the War Horse for you, our gentle service and cuisine will relax you throughout.


We serve our Monday to Saturday set La Ballerina Menu which varies in choice each day for £13.95 with a little family fun on Sundays with children’s menus.

We serve our special set La Ballerina Theatre Menu which varies in choice every day for £13.95.
