“Not worth a visit”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

Piazza Bellini must be one of the most overrated attractions in Naples. I did not like any of the cafes there enough to want to sit for a drink, the crowds were all over the place just sitting on the floor and on top of everything I did not feel very secure there at night. I can't see why it is being portrayed as the meeting place for hip young people and intellectuals... Did not find anything artistic or inspiring about it whatsoever.

“A Nice Place for a Coffee”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

This pleasant little square is a nice place to sit and watch people if one in in the area. But it is far from being unique in this city of dozens of nearly identical squares.

“Funny in the evening”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

A lot of restaurants and terraces, some with better food, some with funkier people. Not clean (as all the Napoli center), but lively and pleasant.
Many book stores and music stores (instruments etc.) around. Plus a likable hotel: Hotel Piazza Bellini.

“A square dedicated to the opera maestro”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

Piazza Bellini is at the heart of the old town in Naples, close to the famous Music Conservatory of Naples San Pietro a Majella. The square and its monument are dedicated to the Sicilian composer Vincenzo Bellini, who studied at the conservatory in Naples. His operas include the famous and beautiful Norma. Next to the statue at the center there are the rests of the Greek walls of Neapolis, the new city. Overlooking the square the elegant staircase and the main facade of the eighteenth-century Convent of St. Anthony in Port'Alba. Numerous cafes frequented till late by young people, students, intellectuals, and beggars flock to the square

“Cool place for a coffee.”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

I visited the piazza for a coffee. It's right next a music college and there were a couple of students busking. This is a cool place for a coffee to absorb some atmosphere and chill out for a hour.
