Great food and ambience. Excellent for birthday parties for kids. Good service with indoor and outdoor seating. There is a play area too for kids. Food is authentic Italian. Definitely worth a visit

Bella Napoli is our go-to place for consistently good italian food. All choices we had so far were great, the pizza is legendary, and the service is pretty fast, especially for the takeaway. Big plus is the garden with a playground, one of the best on the peninsula.

Visited this establishment last night. Interesting menu with a large selection of pizzas. Unfortunately, they dont do crispy pizzas. The waiting time for the main course ....lemon chicken and cannelloni took more than 30 minutes....a long wait. Good portions, both dishes were subtly flavored and well presented.

We enjoyed two meals at Bella Napoli within the space of 3 days following a recommendation from a friend who lives near by. It is a great place to enjoy some lovely Italian inspired food, reminds me of Pizza Express in the UK. Alongside the great atmosphere, there is a kids play area close to the eating area where the...

Pretty good food. In my opinion mains and pastas are much better than their pizzas. Can be noisy with families and kids. Service is slow but is a coomon problem in Tz.

Vegetarians and omnivores alike will delight in Bella Napoli's attempt to bring authentic Italian food to Dar es Salaam, a place where quality ingredients -- particularly good cheese -- are scare. Bella Napoli makes the best mozzarella in Dar es Salaam, and combines it with bright red ripe tomatoes in the caprese salad starter, a must-have dish at the restaurant.... More
