This was our first time there after hearing wonderful things and seeing the reviews from other patrons. The food and drinks were delicious and the ambience was amazing. This was a special treat for me and my husband as we knew the affordability wasn’t necessarily realistic for us, but we will be back soon!

South Kansas City
About the restaurant
Under the guidance of his Italian-native mother, and heavily influenced by his travels throughout Italy, Jake Imperiale opened Bella Napoli in 2001 to meet Kansas City's need for authentic Italian food, wine and market goods. Jake hand selects each product for Bella's deli and market and every item is imported from Italy. Wander across the room and you'll be immersed in an atmosphere as authentically Italian as it gets. An integral element of Bella Napoli, the pizzeria offers a variety of traditional Italian dishes.

At Bella Napoli, the ambiance of a true Italian ristorante, classic Italian recipes, warm friendly service and a renowned wine list culminate in an Italian dining experience you're sure to fall in love with.
