Ordered 4 starters the calamari was stone cold and wife could not eat it not the best by some way. Had the beetroot and goats cheese starter more pickled beetroot... More

Been here several times and always been happy but last night was awful. 6 of us went to celebrate my sons birthday. Unfortunately they have changed their menu so instead of having whitebait as a starter which I always have here, I had to have mixed sea fish. A massive fried sardine was served up on my plate with no... More

This evening we fancied a changed and tried Bella Napoli as I've heard such good recommendations. I tried sole fish tonight. I hate fish. But this was unreal. Absolutely beautiful. Another friend had swordfish. Well... Ive never tried anything more delicious. The fish just melted in your mouth. All the staff were so friendly, laughing with customer's and laughing with... More

We have visited Bella Napoli several times sinc my last review and each time has been a pleasurable experience. The staff are attentive but not pushy and we have never been rushed. The food is excellent and plenty of it. They have recently changed their menu but it is still good

A proper Italian amongst the Marina's long list of chain restaurants and absolutely worth the visit. I generally prefer family-run places where they almost always will accommodate 'off the menu' requests and the authenticity of the food more often than not exceeds that of the chain restaurants. Bella Napoli did not disappoint. Given the ever changing and increasingly competitive restaurant... More

One thing you can guarantee with Italian restaurants is the welcome and friendly service, but the opposite was true here. We were shown to the table, and although it was not busy we waited over ten minutes before we were even offered a drink. Although the food when it came was pleasant enough, the service was offhand almost to the... More

We visited this Restaurant again for a lovely evening out, even though it was very busy Francesco accommodated us. He is a lovely, professional and caring Head Waiter. If you want the extra service, I would always ask for him to serve you. He know the border of professionalism and being accommodating and friendly towards clients. 10 stars for Francesco,

We popped in on the spur of the moment for a late lunch. The atmosphere is very Italian. The waiters make it Italian with their beautiful language. Quick, efficient friendly service. The food was tasty and well presented.The restaurant has an extensive menu, prices are medium to expensive and was busy which is always a good sign. Still think there... More

This restaurant has been here and run by the same family for years. Still great selection of pizzas, pastas and specials available. There was a group on 10 as well as many other tables, service was fast and efficient. It was good to see many people avoiding the 'chains' that are in the Marina. We had Capra Carrozza and tomato...
