Amazing pizza!

Small place so very intimate. The chef/owner is very friendly and is happy to walk you through the various dishes on the menu. I've been to this place a couple of times and the pizza in particular is delicious.

Have visited many times now. Marcello the pizza chef and Alice the waitress are super friendly and always come and chat when it's not busy. The pizza dough and sauce is always amazing and Marcello is a trained pastry chef so the desserts are great. I would like to see more wines by the glass as you can only get... More

Tried Bella Naples after cinema on Saturday night. Run by a lovely couple who made us feel very welcome. Homely atmosphere, simple decor. Wonderful blazing pizza oven - felt very cosy on a cold night. Good menu of pizza/pasta staples - not fancy, but very good. Ravioli di pesto was certainly hand-prepared and fresh, and absolutely delicious. Decent glass of... More

We have eaten in many more expensive restaurants but always come back to this charming little bistro which is often missed as it is not on the main drag in South Woodford. A real gem opposite the cinema and although the outlook isn't the most attractive it is well worth a visit. Last night I had the seafood spaghetti -... More

Visited after the cinema. Small establishment with strange music playing. Sat by the pizza station. A busy Friday night was obviously not the norm as inexperienced staff nervously fluttered around and eventually bought us a menu but did not ask us if we would like a drink or maybe some Garlic bread while we waited. After nearly 15 minutes we... More

I was in London visiting a friend and I went with my mum and my aunt to have dinner in Bella Naples. We shared some dishes from the menu: pasta, pizza (It was made in wood oven) and salad. All of them were delicious, I cannot choose just one. The food, service and atmosphere were just perfect. The local is... More

For some reason we have not eaten out at local restaurants for some time. We were going to the cinema last Sunday and decided to try out the restaurant We went on speck and arrived early which was fortunate because the restaurant rapidly filled up.

This is a small family Italian restaurante and pizzeria in the High Road, South Woodford. The seating area is bijou - and diners will find themselves relatively close to each other when full ( as it is Thursday - weekend) - but the buzz of conversation is pleasant. Bella Naples have a prominent wood-fired oven and delicious authentic italian pizza's... More

We have been several times to Bella Naples with young children. We order the children's food quickly, which they are happy to accommodate, the dough balls from the wood oven are always a hit. The children's pizza come in a funny shape, once we had bunny rabbit ears, once shape of a fish, which also go down well. We (adults)... More

Called in on spec midweek evening. Friend's Parmigiana starter was ok, my mussels were tiny in a slightly odd broth with cherry tomatoes. 2 peperoni pizzas took an absolute age to arrive. The hipster type guy making them had absolute no urgency about him whatsoever - it was not exactly busy - he would last about 5 mins in any... More
