“Always a friendly welcome ;-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We have been to this little gem of a place many times, and just love the atmosphere, and keep going back. Yes it can be quite cramped, but that adds to it's unique charm. Be prepared to stay a while as all the food is freshly prepared, and piping hot. Not sure if it's still a BYO, but it was last time we went? I too mentioned I was booking it for my birthday, and when we arrived they had decorated the table with confetti and a banner, and put a candle in the middle of my dessert!!!! Last time we went on Valentines night, they had 2 sittings an early and a late. We went for the early but still had plenty of time to enjoy our meal and not feel rushed.

The world's tiniest Italian restaurant, it's like sitting in someone's front room, with a view to their kitchen. Love it. We have never had a bad meal here, and it's great value too.

Busy at weekends and Valentines, but just as good during the week when it's quieter.

For those using public transport, there is a bus stop right out side, so very convenient too.

“A great little restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We went to Bella Napoli to celibrate family birthdays and had a very nice time.
I have had meals in italy and can tell you that the food hear is superior and served with love and kindness.
Service is nice and slow, just the right pace for a relaxing evening, who wants to rush when chatting and enjoying good food ?
Book in plenty of time !!

“Intimate and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This is the restaurant that changed my husbands mind about Italian food. We had tried any Italians in Sheffield and he always felt like the food was second rate to something I could rustle up at home. But on coming here he then realised he had only been to mediocre Italians and this one superb. You can hear your food cooking and know that it has all been made fresh. We last visited for my Mum's 60th and the staff decorated our table with banners and confetti without us requesting it. This was really thoughtful and made this big occasion really special for her.
