Service, atmosphere, value, food all keep me coming back. Well done. This is a real Italian vibe and offers well priced options at lunch and dinner

The location is easier than other Bella Napoli and room more modern, but less characteristic. The menu' offers all the choice of Italian pasta/rice (good both pasta carbonara and rice with seafood), pizzas and main course. I suggest to order immediately the "focaccia" and the "bruschetta" to start quickly waiting the courses.

Bella Napoli is a classic in Shanghai. It has been opened for many years. The food is good, the service is efficient and the atmosphere is really nice. Lunch sets are very good value

Always a good sign when you see a large group of Italians waiting outside of an Italian Restaurant in a city outside of Italy! The pizza was as good as any we've had in Italy...thin crust with proper cheese prepared in proper Napoli wood burning oven. You can tell 'they care'. Waitress - a lovely English speaking Italian/Mexican young lady... More

The ambient is perfect to provide Italian taste: chequered tablecloth, pictures from Naples. Pizza is good, but a little bit to thick; good also the various kinds of pasta

Place is busy. Food is overrated. Last visit was very confusing. Food quality went down, pizza (2 of them) just average with very soggy crust. Cold cut platter has nothing special including locally made charcuterie not authentic Italian. Servers are so confused to bring wrong food to your table so you have to recall your own order. A year back... More

Like many foreigners resident in China our business and frequent night time calls with our peers all over he world, I have no time for my personal things. It is normal for me to use Saturday for the family routine. Since I had a slot of two hours between two appointments, I decided to reward myself with a REAL Italian... More

After overdosing on dumplings in the early part of our trip to Shanghai, my wife and I considered all options for dinner one night and came across Bella Napoli just off West Nanjing Rd. What a fantastic experience! We had to wait about ten minutes for a table and for our trouble they gave us each a free glass of... More

Went here for dinner on our last night in Shanghai and I must say that I am really glad we did. We tried one other well known Italian restaurant during our time in Shanghai, but Bella Napoli is certainly the better of the two. The pizzas are made using a real wood fired oven that is positioned in the heart... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
