Popped in on saturday evening around 9ish. Small Italian restaurant across the road from the cinema. They were able to seat us straight away. Third time we have eaten here. Food and service good. The owner is lovely and passionate about the food he serves. Prices are really reasonable... read more

We have been here three times and I so want it to be great but I doubt we will visit again. The food is inconsistent and the service isn't great. The pizza is probably the best bet although my husband prefers an Italian thin crispy base and that isn't what you get at Bella Naples. I'm beginning to believe there... More

Could there possibly be a small, family run authentic Italian / Neopolitan restaurant in the middle of South Woodford with excellent food at reasonable prices? My wife and I visit Italian every year and we got married there. Food in Italy is different than Italian food in UK/London. We seek out authentic Italian restaurants in London and only can find...

The food was once again superb and the freshly made bread stood out. The Antipasto between four of us was excellent and the rate Lacryma Christi Wine was superb. The Chef is also a real character and adds to the restaurants charm.

Being half Neapolitan and living in South Woodford, I wanted to love this place but unfortunately it's a massive let down.. I've been almost ten times now, and more often then not, I've left really disappointed. A couple of times they've nailed the pizza and it's been great but on EVERY visit, the service has been poor and VERY slow!... More

Dear customer. I'm sorry that you felt unhappy your last visit. It's nice to know that you are half Neapolitan. after I've lived all my life in Naples, I've learned to appreciate the good food, it's for that reason that I select all my ingredient from the finest Italians manufacturers, and I select as well myself fishes and vegetables in...

We had heard good things about this restaurant, and it looked lovely, but we were very disappointed. Every course took a very long time indeed to arrive, despite the restaurant not being busy. The starter was ok, but the pizzas were overdone around the edges but underdone in the middle. The puddings were excellent however.

What a great find! A tiny little gem of an Italian restaurant in South Woodford run by the amazing Marcello. The pasta is special. I had a tasty spaghetti carbonara - the pasta was perfect al dente with a lighter sauce than you'll get elsewhere. My wife had the pesto ravioli and swears it was the best she's had outside... More

Went here as I'm half Neapolitan. Had high hopes but the pizza isn't traditional. Lovely staff though.

Just been for the first time and can't wait to return. Unfortunately a member of staff didn't turn in so they were rushed off their feet but still served beautiful Italian food which was full of flavour and was well worth waiting for. Very reasonable and great homely atmosphere. Compliments to a nice family restaurant and so much nicer than... More
