Bar Italia Restaurant Review:

One of Soho's good institutions which will probably be there after every other style of restaurant-bar-café has been tried and long gone, Bar Italia attracts a motley crew of customers who come to gaze at the huge video screen (particularly lively if Italy is playing football) in the back room or to get an outside table. People-watching is one of the draws, being seen here is another, a third is the coffee and the fresh juices. Large toasted sandwiches, pizzas and bagels keep the night-owls and clubbers going.
