Tucked away on Mount Vernon Avenue in Del Ray is Bella Napoli, an authentic Italian eatery that will satisfy any craving for classic comfort food created with love. Pizza, pasta, seafood and more are complemented by delectable appetizers (la caprese, calamari) and tempting desserts (tiramisu, cheesecake) you can enjoy in the casual dining room or outside on the patio.
This is our go to place for family dinner a few times a month. The service is always good and the food excellent. I do wish the portions were slightly larger. Leftovers aren't happening. I like that the specials are usually a little mix of different things - like some lobster Ravioli on the side. The pizza is also one of the closest I've found to NY pizza in the area. -Kyle K.
Great service, a little gem hidden in plain sight. The Chicken parm is delicious and the gnocchi with meat sauce is as well. The tiramisu is also good, overall good prices. -Jose V.
We (2 couples) have visited twice and enjoyed our meals. We've tried an assortment of appetizers (e.g. fried calamari, steamed mussels, stuffed mushrooms, garlic bread w/ and w/o cheese) and entrees/specials (e.g. Cannelloni, Manicotti w/sausage, Lobster Ravioli, Eggplant Parm, Chicken Marsala) and have not been disappointed with any. The house bread (free) is served hot and crusty and is ready for dipping in EVOO/Balsamic. Salads are fresh. Cannolis are filled when ordered. The wine list is adequate ($25-30 btl) and there is a reasonable ($12) charge to bring your own. Want to try the pizza next because it always looks so good when we see it. Nice Del Ray neighborhood place with outdoor seating when weather permits. -TC S.
