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

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.

We love this place. I love that they have an outside dining option. The food is great and they never rush you to finish your meal. We celebrated our wedding anniversary on Saturday for the second year in a row. I think we will make it an annual tradition.

We were in Nashville doing some college tours w/ our teens & found this gem on Open Table. We really enjoyed our meal & loved the laid back atmosphere.
Music on the patio & lots of energy in this cute, cozy italian spot, definitely give it a try!

Food and service were good but watch out for the paid parking lot across the street. I parked and entered my plate number (and was billed to my credit card) but when retrieving my car had a boot on it. I called and they claimed they did not have by lisc. plate number in their system and even though I showed them a paid parking receipt on my phone from my credit card company I had to pay $68 to have the boot removed!! The parking rate was reasonable but the boot act and cost totally ruined the evening. The machine did not print out a receipt even though I tried it twice but it did bill me. I emailed the parking company but they did not reply. I will never park in the lot again and may not return to Bella Napoli due to what ended up being a terrible experience.

GREAT AUTHENTIC ITALIAN COOKING. Loved the cute courtyard with little tables and white lights. Loved the distressed brick walls. Service was amazing-we had a lot of questions and the waiter went above and beyond to find the answers. Definitely recommend this eatery.

Second time in, this time with a larger group of 8 including 4 kids. They really get the food out fast, which is great with 4 kids in tow. Everything we had was excellent. Nice, reasonably priced wine list and Peroni on draft is a bonus. Very attentive and welcoming service. One of our favorites for casual night out.

The pasta specials are not to be missed! I have never been disappointed! The layers of flavors the chef is able to build in these dishes is a work of art. Tonite was a four cheese ravioli with mushrooms and Italian sausage with a black truffle cream sauce and words cannot describe! The staff are always top notch and the owner comes by to check in each table personally which is a great touch. One of our Nashville favorite! Great for couple perfect girls gatherings as the offer outdoor dining as well as the old world charm of the indoors. This is not a one time restaurant. You will be back :). Again and again and again!

Our family was looking for an easy place to go while on a short visit to Nashville. Our waitress seemed annoyed, maybe at us, maybe at having a busy night, not sure. We enjoyed the pizza however they don’t cater to families so no kid sized anything, or the regular pepperoni pizza. We have elementary aged kids so one was happy with food choices, the other one not. We wouldn’t probably go back due to the service. It was very busy, not social distancing between tables. We felt uncomfortable being crammed into dining area with so many people.

Responded on April 7, 2021

Hello Jodie, sorry for your not so good experience at our place. We do have kids size pasta for our little guests but we don't have pepperoni on our menu since it is not an authentic italian topping. Please let me know the name, if you remember of your waitress, because she should have presented the kids options to you. Our tables are at required distance but when we are busy it sure doesn't look like it. Again sorry for the bad service experience.

Have been here a few times before and LOVED it. The food we did have this time was fantastic. The problem was two-fold. 1. They no longer make the fried dough balls. Those were awesome and a huge disappointment that they were no longer offered. 2. They ran out of ingredients to make bruschetta. An Italian restaurant had no more bread or tomatoes? Add to this they ran out of Bud Light AND Miller Lite and the experience was less than desirable. The only truly great thing was our server. He was superb.

Given all the problems we had, it was terribly disappointing that no manager or owner came over to apologize...especially for a table of 11.

Will we be back? Probably however, it won’t be an automatic as was the case up until yesterday.

Hi, thank you for your review. I apologize for the missing items that night at our restaurant. However the server didn't mention anything about the problems with your table and I take full responsibility about it. I remember having finished the bread that night that we make " in house " and we didn't expect such a huge volume of guests, again not an excuse. I will address all those problems mentioned by you and rest assure we won't run out of items again! Thank you again for letting me know.

We went last minute and had an early dinner or late lunch. We had heard good things and were not disappointed. The food was amazing, good drinks too. Pleasant service from our waitress and the gentleman that sat us. We have friends coming to visit next weekend and immediately decided we’d be happy to go back with them only a week later. Definitely a gem.
