When I head this ‘predictably’ it’s not a criticism. It’s a compliment. Unfortunately I’ve never been to an Italian restaurant in Italy but I have been lucky enough to eat at Italian restaurants in several other countries. The standard is nearly always good, and more...than often the same dishes are served, making it easy to have a (predictably) good dining experience. Bella Napoli is the first Italian restaurant I have eaten at in the Philippines. I like the venue - up a busy, narrow street, and then up a flight of stairs lined with photographs of famous Italians - a hall of fame, and finally into the dining area. There is an air conditioned part and a part which is open to the street below. Both nights I ate there I sat in the open area for the atmosphere. The first night - I had a pizza. It was a good size. Not too big, not too small. ‘Just the right side’ of moist. Not overcooked, not undercooked. I ate it slowly, took my time. Afterwards I walked back to my hotel in the warm tropical night, a contented dough boy sporting a mozzarella grin. The second night - I chose bruschetta as a first course. Then I opted for seafood spaghetti as a main course. I made this choice because I like the dish and because I was beside the sea. Again, I’ve had classic dishes like these many times in many Italian bistros and have rarely been disappointed. This time was no different. The Bruschetta was the familiar pleasure I sought and I ate it a little greedily, every crumb. Now, the main course of seafood spaghetti - I’m going to stick my neck out and say it was even better than the versions I’ve had in other Italians. The spaghetti was a good texture and had mussels, clams, squid and shrimps in a tomato sauce. Life felt good. The thing that really struck me about it though was the shrimps. They were mainly de-shelled. But there were a few tiny whole ones. A lovely touch. It added a slight crunch and a little burst of extra flavour, and (if you don’t like shellfish don’t read these next words) the best part was the heads. Oh yes. Regrettably there was no third night ..More

This restaurant is a hidden gem and has the best pizza in Sabang Beach. The restaurant is located on the second floor, where you can sit and people watch while enjoying your delicious pizza or any of their other menu items.

We recommend this authentic Italian restaurant to every Italian food lover. Me and my can't come to Sabang without a visit there. The owner and crew are very friendly and also good for a small talk. Everyone works with joy and passion. I work also...in an Italian restaurant in Germany and I can say the Pastas, Pizzas and everything else is absolutely fresh and tasty. No Ding Dong food (Microwave). The location in the first floor awesome and lovely decorated. Also you have a huge selection of Italians finest wines which round up every romantic dinner. Come to "Bella Napoli" and feel the true spirit of Italian cuisine.More

We stayed in Sabang for 4 days... and went to Bella Napoli 3 times on those 4 days, I think that says enough. We tried the Calzone, Hawaiian, Chicken and Del Capitano pizzas and my wife also had pasta. All equally delicious! For drinks I...suggest the Aperol Spritz, Gin Tonic or Mango shake. We always sat outside on the balcony, where you have a nice view over the small street and the girls bar on the opposite site. Some people might find that too noisy, I liked it as some sort of entertainment... better than tv!More

I would class myself as an Italian food connoisseur having eaten Italian cuisine across the world. Massi the owner is an amazing host and nothing is to much to ask of him. We ate the Penne Panna & Salsicia and Americana pizza on our first...visit then the Carpaccio Di Manzo & Penne All’ Arrabbiata on our second visit. All of the food was excellent with a special mention to the Arrabbiata, I have eaten this dish over 100 times and this has got to be one of the best I’ve ever eaten. Great level of spice which you do not find many places along with a real authentic Italian tomato sauce. If you love Italian food DO NOT visit Sabang without trying Bella Napoli. Look forward to coming back soon.More

Well.. When you pay something close to 10 bucks per dish, you'd expect it to be good. Frozen gnocchi + tomato sauce from a supermarket + microwave, that's what you get here. That's actually worse than poor.

Surely you are American and cannot see the difference between home made gnocchi and home made ragù and Frozen ones and Tim gravy.... Before judging is better to know what are you eating.... Enjoy McDonald's

I am glad to see that quality resists with time. After four years from my first visit food is still great, good choice of wines(not easy in the Philippines) and a friendly atmsphere. I couldn't find a sort of pasta that I didnt lik, and...I tried like 5-6 types. Carpaccio like in the good places of Europe, delicious pizza, and a real caprese(when bufala is available-also difficult to find in that part of the world). One can see that the owners try hard to keep a part of Italy alive. Must go to Bella Napoli if you're around.More
