Location and contact

Glasgow���s pizza connoisseurs know that the best place in town to come for a knock-out Italian feast is Bella Napoli ��� an iconic Glasgow institution on the Kilmarnock Road. With countless awards to his name, head chef Domenico Crollo took Bella Napoli over from his father in 2005, and the art of Italian cookery is in his blood. Flying to Italy to source the best flour, mozzarella and Italian wines, Crollo has created pizza perfection at Bella Napoli, and this vibrant restaurant is a must for any serious lover of great Italian food. Spread out over three levels, this welcoming venue serves everything from espressos and sandwiches to pasta, risotto, burgers, steaks and outstanding homemade

One of our favourite restaurants although we still prefer the old decor and layout to the new glitzy and very modern interior. Food is amazing - pizza to die for and pasta is sublime!

yes thats the only change. they decided after 17yrs for a wee change in name and decor to move with the times and too many restaurants in glasgow that start with the name bella.. staff are the same and chef is the same :-)

Response from Genny68 | Property representative |
The name change is due to several other restaurants using the word Bella in their name. Too much confusion! Nothing else has changed .
