Bella Maria was one of my first loves after relocating to Naples. I have never had a bad meal here. I particularly adore the quiche, home made in the kitchen! And I always quench my thirst on the fantastic sangria. :) Enjoy!

While walking down 5th Avenue looking for lunch, I noticed the menu board on the street and decided to give this place a try. Since I love Pot Roast and never had a Pot Roast Sandwich, I decided to give it a try. It was excellent and is served on a Ciabatta with tomato and avocado. I spiced it up... More

Bella Maria has a killer pot roast sandwich that is not to be missed. I am not sure a pot roast sandwich has anything to do with Spain but it’s very good. The proprietor, Carlos, is rude and condescending to customers. The atmosphere of the restaurant is pathetic. One of the tables in the dining room serves as the restaurant's... More

First of all, not sure if Carlos is the same person that one other review reviled. Hubby and I decided to lunch at a restaurant almost across the street on 5th, but the sandwich board out side this little restaurant stopped us in our tracks with a lunch special that included a Cuban Sandwich . After seeing the movie "Chef"... More

My husband and I were curious about a restaurant boasting about great lunch specials and tapas, so we stopped in. We ordered a pitcher of Sangria and the Choclo dish, and Crab Meat Quiche. I was sadly disappointed with mine.. the crab meat quiche was a truly boring dish. I was more interested in my husband's dish, because that was... More

My wife and I tried this little restaurant out a few weeks ago, and found it to be a great experience. The service was great and the food was very good. We shared four small plates and were pleased with each course. The flavors were tremendous. This is a charming spot right on 5th Avenue South, in downtown Naples. We... More

AVOID AT ALL COST. Host dropped menus on table and left. Did not greet.Finally comes out and asks what we'd like "Two lemonades and we already know what we'd like to eat." he rudely smirked and said "First I bring you the drinks and then we continue." I replied "It's just that I only have an hour or so, we... More

My Mom and I stopped into Bella Maria during a shopping trip on 5th Avenue S in Naples. The place advertised Tapas - one of our favorites. The service was friendly and warm. I don't know what happened with the recent reviewers - as our experience was in no way consistent with their complaints. I ordered the lasagna which was... More
