“Excellent, great value too.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

For an appetizer, we split the meat/cheese tray. Best Prosciutto ever, another type of thinly sliced meat, Itaial salami, very sharp white cheese (softer Romano maybe?), tomatoes and whole slices of mozzerella. Served with toasted bread that wasn't too well done and crumbly
Entrees: Me: Wild Boar with pasta. Her: Spaghetti and seafood.
You'll read reviews saying this is authentic, and it is. Proof is that you'll get your pasta al dente without being asked. That doesn't happen in the US much. More importantly is that the food was great. Service was too.
PS. After reading reviews, we got a simple mushroom pizza to go. It's pretty small, but the crust is perfect NY style. Cheese is regular mozzarella, and sauce is good. Best pizza I've tasted in the Midwest.

“Amazing old-world Italian meal at Bella Napoli”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Bella Napoli has amazing authentic Italian food served in a pleasantly cluttered space with a cozy neighborhood feel. We dined on "half-price bottle of wine Tuesday" and enjoyed an excellent red. My dinner was ricotta ravioli, absolute perfection, accompanied by bread with olive oil. Afterward I enjoyed browsing their extensive collection of retail offerings: deli meats and cheese, pasta, wine, beverages, chocolate and pastries.

“KC's best Italian-style pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

If you've ever had real Italian pizza, this is as close as it gets here in KC. All of their ingredients are imported from Italy--right down to the flour used to make the dough. Try the capricciosa for authentic Italian toppings, a hard one to pass up once you've had it. Their sandwiches are also nice and pasta is awesome, but the pizza…delicious! The word is definitely out on this place but it's worth the wait. Call for specials, Monday's I believe they have pizza deals. So, so, so good. Best Italian pizza we've had outside of Europe.

“I'm definitely in trouble now... YUM!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We have had friends suggest Bella Napoli several times but we always forget. Friday we went for dinner and FELL IN LOVE! Everything was EXACTLY what I wanted... I wanted Italian with a casual atmosphere, a Bellini that wasn't too sweet, pizza that wasn't overdressed and had the most amazing flavors and the evening's special which was a pasta filled with the perfect amount of cheeses and NOT smothered in cream! The walnut puree cream sauce was so perfect we dipped our bread in it at the end so as not to "waste" any! I know this all sounds unbelievable but it was just the perfect evening. Our server was super nice and very helpful! If it wasn't for the table of 8 LOUD overly self important babbling housewives directly behind us the evening would have been the best it was just a little difficult for us to visit (I realize the staff can't ask that they hold it down...but could move tables a little farther apart).

Can't wait to go back!!!!

“Quando a Napoli . . .”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

As others have said, this little place feels quite authentic, right down to the good-natured disorganization and surprising prices : ) Note that there are two areas: a little deli as you come in, and sit-down pizza and pasta on through to the side. The sidewalk tables are handled by the latter area. The food was delicious with high quality ingredients, although, we ended up ordering twice before we felt full. Service was very friendly and attractive. I would definitely go back occasionally when I need a “real Italian” fix.
