“Bella Napoli Review”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

Just been here once for dinner, when I stayed in Dar. The food was pretty good, up to the standards I was expecting and good services. The ambiance was good, too many people a little noisy but it was good. The service was quite good as well, good on time and very fresh. It was a good experience all together

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

Ambiance, great food and good service ... what more can you ask for? In addition to a very large menu, Bella Napoli has a daily special which is always good. Appetizers, first and second courses: pasta, meat and fish are the staples and they do all of these very well. The wine list is short, but there is probably something there for you.

Services is just fine.

Prices for the meals and the wine are very good BUT be sure to bring cash -- they don't take credit cards. (A bit of a surprise if you're not told about this beforehand.)

This is my second time at Bella Napoli -- this restaurant was recommended by a friend who said that she's never had a bad meal here (and claims this to be her favourite restaurant) -- and this is quickly becoming a favourite for me.

“Average food, nice ambiance”
Reviewed 31 March 2013 via mobile

Bella Napoli's remains average. A simple basic tradional pasta dish has an odd can taste. Spaghetti is served without a spoon. Grana padano is sold as parmegiano.

Thank you for your feedback,
We can assure you all of our sauces are made from fresh local tomatoes, we never use or even buy canned tomatoes. Perhaps next time you could try one of our other sauces if you would like something with more complexity. We do use both Grana and Parmesan in our restaurant which we buy from an Italian produce importer.

Although spaghetti is not served with a spoon in Italy the waiters have been trained to offer a spoon when serving spaghetti, therefore we are sorry this did not happen and staff have been informed.
We are constantly training to try improve our service
Thank you

“Quality Italian”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

Very nice place for quality Italian food. Great wine list. The seating is fine both inside and outside. Less busy than Zuane and they have different dishes, so it's a good Zuane alternative (for example for a romantic meal a deux)... I remember an excellent crab pasta for example.
