Had 14 people for my daughter’s birthday. Brandon was our server and did a fantastic job! The food was fantastic and everyone in the kitchen tried to help prop up the bday candles in the desserts 😆. It was a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back! Thank you for making everything so wonderful!

The gnocchi and the pizza were both excellent. My friend and I both thought the gnocchi was the best we have tried!

The pizza (Capricciosa) was also very good. The pizza dough alone would make a satisfying meal!

We will definitely return.

Good food. We had the mussels and Cesear salads to start with before dinner. The waitress was so helpful with a white wine choice to pair with our meal. We had Penne and the sauce was delish.

Bella Napoli serves amazing authentic Italian cuisine. It’s the best family style Italian restaurant in Nashville by far and the food is presented at a very reasonable cost. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, The Pizza is also out of this world.!!!!! If you are fortunate enough to meet the manager Angelo he is highly interesting and entertaining to chat to. Viva Bella Napoli!!

To be honest there’s nothing to brag about here. The service was decent the waitress was extremely nice. The calamari was bland under cooked and loaded with salt. This is definitely some sort of frozen calamari that comes out of a box that they drop in oil for two minutes and then just salt the crap out of it and even the sauce that you’re supposed to dip the calamari in had zero flavor so I’m assuming it must’ve came from some sort of canned product. we told the waitress that we didn’t like it she said I’m surprised but never took it off the bill. We ordered two pizzas the Formagi Quattro was very good. My friend and I care for his pizza which had tomatoes and olives some sort of meat on it. The menu is very limited and I think they’re going to need to work on the recipes.

Couldn’t have been treated more poorly by staff. My server was awesome. However, from arrival my family was met with aggravation from staff and long wait times with zero interaction as to why. Upon being seated, I thanked the gentleman hostess. His reply “yeah”. Then quickly brushed by. I mentioned twice I made a reservation through OpenTable, yet I was never checked in. The food was good but I cannot shake the fact I spent good money to walk away feeling completely unwelcome.

I have dined here a while ago and we came back last night. This time- wow. Bad experience. Marinara sauce was extremely watery and flavorless.. clear tomato juice just puddled at the bottom. We asked for bread and the waitress said she’d bring focaccia… she brought out a pizza crust. That’s not focaccia. They have bread on the menu for bruschetta so I’m confused why we got a soggy crust. The pizza was doughy and you couldn’t pick it up without all the ingredients sliding off. Brutal experience. We left and were starving after.

Pasta was completely undercooked, server brought two plates to our table (there was 6 of us) and then went and served another table and then came back for the rest of our food. Wrong drinks were given, no organization when it came to food running, and more. I was disappointed because as we were walking in, a woman told us the food was amazing, but I was served hard pasta after waiting for around 30-45 minutes. Had absolutely no desire to send it back. No one finished their food.

Our favorite go to... best pizzas and Caesar salad! Desserts excellent too but it’s hard to save room for them but worth it if you can. Small but good wine list- fairly priced. Eat outside if possible tables set in charming alley

The kitchen and server forgot our food for over 2 hours and drinks for close to an hour. The tables around us got their food. Tables came and went and we still sat there.

We told the server multiple times and he blamed it on the kitchen then we told the kitchen bc the manager was standing near us then it was another 30 minutes and at that point they were out of what we originally ordered and tried to bring us something different. We just walked out. We go there a lot and I can’t believe how bad that experience was.

Dear Sir/Madam First of all let me apologize for your very bad experience. I remember your table and that awful night. We really messed up and I want to recognize our mistakes. I assure you that was a first. Please let us make it up to you and please come back and have dinner on us with all the great experience you always had at Bella Napoli. Please ask for Angelo and I will take care personally of you guys. Again my deepest apologies.

When reading about this place, and having a local Uber driver recommend it, I was very excited for the pizza. However, I was quickly disappointed when my plain pizza arrived at the table very soggy in the center. I had to request bar napkins to put under the crust to have some hope of salvaging the pie. However, my friend thoroughly enjoyed her meal. The bruschetta was delicious as was the caprese salad. I would possibly go back hoping what happened to my pizza was a fluke but when mentioning the sogginess to the waiter, he didn't even offer to have the kitchen remake it. That's a sign of bad service (and possibly that this is a recurring issue) so, I'd think twice about it.
