Good start under new management

We called in as a family group of 4 for dinner as we saw the sign about new management and new menu, not having been here for a few years. A lovely friendly welcome. A simpler menu that before which contained fish, steaks, pasta and pizza and a couple of specials. Within the starters our group had... read more

Went today for lunch after hearing it was under new management, wasn't sure what to expect but I can safely say it was excellent. The wife had stuffed mushrooms to start which were very tasty, I had deep fried squid which was very light. We both had the red pesto pasta with chillies and spring onion and a very nice... More

I think it has changed hands, sadly, since we've been there. Let's hope they keep the level as high as the pre-owners, who were such an absolutely beautiful Itallian couple, who were ever so proud of their food range. We went there for a special treat, and the food was exceptional. Absolutely gorgeous. Very sad they're gone and really hoping... More

Under new management, this place has stepped up its game. Yes the decor is still a little strange but it is clean and presentable and I imagine in time it will change to something as pleasing as the rest of the dining experience. This isn't Abingdon's only Italian restaurant however it is easily the best, for price, quality and overall... More

What a gem! My boyfriend and I ate here and it was just fabulous. There is under new management and they are trying really hard. Its like stepping into a restaurant in the heart of Italy. A wonderful atmosphere with perfect lighting and music. The food was to die for. We had the lasagne and calzone which were both very... More

My boyfriend and I ate at Bella Napoli three or four times a year, and really loved the very authentic and delicious Italian food. We ate at the restaurant last weekend, without realising it was under new ownership (until we'd arrived). Calamari starter was left on the serving hatch for ten minutes before they tried to serve it to me.... More

Absolutely gutted. Was my fav restaurant but not any more. Appreciate the previous owners wanted to retire but new owners have changed menu and I'm sad
