A proper Italian amongst the Marina's long list of chain restaurants and absolutely worth the visit. I generally prefer family-run places where they almost always will accommodate 'off the menu' requests and the authenticity of the food more often than not exceeds that of the chain restaurants. Bella Napoli did not disappoint. Given the ever changing and increasingly competitive restaurant... More

One thing you can guarantee with Italian restaurants is the welcome and friendly service, but the opposite was true here. We were shown to the table, and although it was not busy we waited over ten minutes before we were even offered a drink. Although the food when it came was pleasant enough, the service was offhand almost to the... More

We visited this Restaurant again for a lovely evening out, even though it was very busy Francesco accommodated us. He is a lovely, professional and caring Head Waiter. If you want the extra service, I would always ask for him to serve you. He know the border of professionalism and being accommodating and friendly towards clients. 10 stars for Francesco,

We popped in on the spur of the moment for a late lunch. The atmosphere is very Italian. The waiters make it Italian with their beautiful language. Quick, efficient friendly service. The food was tasty and well presented.The restaurant has an extensive menu, prices are medium to expensive and was busy which is always a good sign. Still think there... More

This restaurant has been here and run by the same family for years. Still great selection of pizzas, pastas and specials available. There was a group on 10 as well as many other tables, service was fast and efficient. It was good to see many people avoiding the 'chains' that are in the Marina. We had Capra Carrozza and tomato...

We visit once a year on 27th December and we are treated like royalty. The folks serving are lovely and the food is always great. Whether you have the sardines or the whitebait to start its fresh and very good. And the specials board is superb. Most people either had the sea bass or the swordfish, both of which were... More

Met friends at Bella Napoli and overall the meals were very disappointing. We also had to wait quite a while for our order to be taken while the two waiters conversed . The two pizzas were okay, the two vegetarian risottos were stodgy and my friends could not finish them. I had chicken escalope Milanese. The chicken was slightly over... More
