You must somehow eat their garlic knots. They are to die for delicious! They also have great cream of crab soup. What's not to like about this place?

We have been going to Bella Napoli since shortly after they opened in a then-new strip shopping center. Our first visit was without great expectations. We were surprised to find this gem in such an unlikely location.

Despite the increase in national chain restaurants in the area, we continued to go here for real, old school Italian foods. The carbonara, bolognese and tortellini are staples for us. They never miss on quality, flavor or quantity. As other reviews mentioned, the servings are ample and we almost always have food left to take home.

We've moved from the area but when visiting, this is our go-to restaurant for Italian food.

My wife and I found this place by accident since it sits in the back corner of a strip mall. We first thought it was a small italian sub shop but after entering was suprised it was a full scale italian restaurant. We had warm bread with spicy olive oil,salads, cream of crab which I would recommend trying since it was one of the best I have ever tasted. We also had the pecan crusted tilapia which melted in your mouth and the chicken alfredo which was also very good. The staff made you feel like family here and were willing to go the extra mile to make your visit special. Go hungry as you will leave stuffed. Glad we found this place as we will definitely visit again. Will save room for desert next time we visit.

Everything about this restaurant is great. The service and food is upscale and the prices are extremely reasonable. The pizza and cream of crab soup are the best I have ever had. You can't go wrong with this resteraunt.
