Thirteen of us went to lunch and enjoyed the service and the foo
The only complaint we have is that it was dirty-looking. Fish tank needed cleaning and the windows also. The outside patio could use a little attention. Bathroom wasn't too clean either.

The food is great...Everything tasted like it was made to order. My chicken marsala was delicious. I ordered a side of angelhair with garlic and olive oil and that was delicious aswell. My wife ordered the chicken saltimboca which she loved. For dessert we had the rum cake and canoli with two espressos. The server was friendly and described the menu and specials in detail. This is a great place to take your friends and family.

The spaghetti and ravioli dinner was horrible - the red sauce/"marinara" tasted like it was heated and poured straight from a Hunt's tomato can. There were no herbs or spices to season it. Pathetic - and how can you screw up SPAGHETTI!! You'd do better making Ragu at your home, I'll put it that way.

The manicotti also tasted pre-made, simply re-heated and served. Wife ordered another platter I can't remember (it was all so forgettable except for the extreme-lack of quality) and it was also pre-made and simply re-heated.

I was really expecting something homemade - something of quality. If I want re-heated Italian food I'll go to the Olive Garden. At least there the quality is a bit better.

If you're looking for Italian food in El Paso - skip Bella Napoli. You'll just be upset at how much you are paying for something you could easily have poured out of a can or jar at your home.

And don't be fooled by the semi-nice website - doesn't mean the food is good.
