This place was packed when we showed up without a reservation. They got us on right away but I would suggest booking in advance. The wine, pasta and appetizers were amazing. Would highly recommend.

It is so amazing restaurant. It is in my favorite area(former French Concession) and very near to Italy Consulate SH.The outside garden is wonderful. The pizza is so yummy because it is typical Italia style(very thin bottom). The pizza is like what I enjoyed in Italia. The Mozzarella Cheese is so gorgeours and very very Napoli-type. The wine is high... More

When I enter Bella Napoli and sit down at my table, be it in one of the main sections or in the "winter garden", I feel relaxed. This is a cosy, nice, unpretentious place serving good, solid italian fare. No complaints about the service either and price/value ratio is very satisfactory as well.

A very good place to find italian food in Shanghai if you get tired on local food. Its kind of a little italy with atmospere which you will find in a normal pizza all around the world. Its a chinese crew with an italian (did not ask but asume based on the dialect) chef. They are doing a good work,... More

We have been there several times. We like the ambiance, we feel like if we were in italia. It's a convivial place with a terrace. The food is pretty good and the wine affordable. The boss is an itilian guy and have 3 restaurants in Shanghai, biz should be good :) Try it, you will not be disappointed!

I personally think that this restaurant is a bit overrated and it is still working with the fame it had in the past years. When I started living in Shanghai 6 years ago, this was my favourite place. The atmosphere is cozy, the staff is nice and you feel to be in an Italian trattoria, this has never changed and... More

Famous Backyard Italian for all foreigners and lots of Germans - reasonable priced and nice events like Pizza baking classes for kids on lunchtime weekends. While food is general Ok - like the Ravioli most and the soups - the pizzas are too often underbaked and made in a rush - but they take it back without any complain and... More

A restaurant hidden in a narrow street but I had a guide to show me. Really good pizzas but this evening success was the pasta. Just loved it. A good place.

The best is to start with focaccia (arrives in 3') waiting to order, the choice of pasta and pizza is always wide and good and the main courses of fish are tasty. Desserts are tipically Italians (little bit "heavy" the Sicilian or Napoletan ...): preferred the apple cake with ice cream.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
