Close to the Italian consulate, it is running by the owner that is able to make the BEST PIZZA in Asia. This for sure as I am an asian traveller...
Nice garden for the summertime, is always full and crowdy as the real italian style restaurant.
All the dishes are excelent, nice vine, and home made limoncello are avaiilable.
Better made tge reservation.

A very quaint setting. We were greated on a busy night and without reservation with champagne. We enjoyed the eggplant appetizer, pizza and pasta. On a subsequent return we also tried the polenta. The "outside" patio is warm and glass enclosed with open sky above. The main dining room is wondefully decorated.

After having spent summer in Italy, we were missing some Italian comfort food! Bella Napoli was the cure. We went to the charming, tucked away Changle Lu restaurant. It was warm, buzzing and friendly. The Italian owner was working and running the floor.
We ordered the arancini to share and it was perfect. Crisp, perfectly cooked rice, amazing. Of course we had the pizza, very authentic, good quality ingredients and nice and crisp, thin bases. The platter of cured meats were fresh and came with buffalo mozzarella and chunks of Parmesan. Delicious.
This place is casual, homely, professionally run. Has a decent wine list, authentic food and even a great menu for the kids. Great for a casual dinner and the food is well cooked and service very efficient.

One point. There is a lovely outdoor dining area too, but too cold in Winter. Our waitress told us it was so busy inside as its now too cold for customers to sit outside.
Why don't Shanghai restaurants use outdoor heaters in Winter like the rest of the world??

First of all I'm from Italy. Ordered through delivery a few times and had been there once.
Food is good, not great, just good. Service is avarage.
Would absolutely not have fortune in Italy, yet is a fair place to find a little bite of home tastes.
Will go there again to try out more.
Prices are a bit high, spent 180cny for 1 pizza, 1 wine glass, 1 ice cream (little one).
Unfortunately I couldn't find any Italian inside.
A bit disappointed.

its sandwich between old lane houses, tiny sign outside changle rd, tells you, you are in the right place, walk an ally full of laundry, bikes, mopets to find a little piece of Italy, home made pasta, pizza, (excellent crust), when you seat in their patio, you can be anywhere... Italy, Spain, always full, full, need to do reservations... try their wine... I leave across the street..so this restaurant is affecting my waistline... ha,ha
