We have been at Bella Napoli with friends and kids. The kids have been well entertained with pizza making, face painting and drawing. The food is good. Unfortunately no gluten free pasta or pizza available. We will surely go again.

The pizzas are the real deal. Make a reservation! If you're lucky you will get a free prosecco and lemon cello!

It was so funny to find an Italian restaurant in the core of Shanghai able to cook a better pizza than in most of restaurant in Italy. I love this restaurant because you can breathe the Italian smell being seat in one of their tables. In addition you can find a good selection of Italian wines and beers. Good place... More

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.

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

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
