“Real Italian in Shanghai”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Owner is Italian, and sets a graet menu. Quality and portions are wonderful. If you need your Italian food fix while in Shanghai, this is THE spot. Gets crowded, but still can feel intimate. Don't miss a pizza as an appetizer to share. It's made in true Italian style, not US version! Been

“not the usual bella napoli”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

I‘ve been in the bella napoli in xuhui before and i thought it was the best italian food i‘ve had in a while. However, i went to the new location and i though it was lower than average quality, it was 9 of us so we tasted half the menu. Though, we still did not have 1 good dish.

“Great Pizza in Shanghai”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Finally here you could find a great Pizza to be in Shanghai, personal I don't like so much the naples pizza but after 6 months there, without a really pizza I love it! Service was great, our waitress could speak a good english and was so polite, clap clap!
It's quite expensive, I spent 600 kuai, one pizza, 2 main courses and a bottle of wine, the cheapest one!

“Real Italian pizza better than many in Italy!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Bella Napoli pizza is real pizza Napolitano style, I have had it a couple of times (at both branches) and they didn't disappoint - first time I had 'Consul's Choice' which was with eggplant and second time 'Diavola' which was with spicy sausage. Both were absolutely delicious and the restaurant had a great vibe, it was not pretentious and filled even the biggest stomach. The owners were extremely nice and accommodative with our baby. Our Italian friends loved the pizzas there and we will definitely go there again next time we come to Shanghai!

“Cosy, authentic restaurant”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Tucked away in a side street nestles the wonderful Bella Napoli. From the moment you enter the restaurant you feel a wonderful sense of Italy. Bustling with atmosphere as people arrive it feels like you have been transported to another place. Food was excellent and the service was impeccable. Lovely to see the "hands on" approach by owners and managers. Nothing was too much trouble. Great traditional food and outstanding service. Definitely will be back.
