The restaurant is a bit hidden on a path at Changle Road, so heads up for the sign. The restaurant is bigger than expected and (on Friday evening) it was crowded and loud. Despite of that, the pizza was very tasty! Seems also like a foreigner's favorite place. If you want to avoid that, you might look for another restaurant.

This place was a great find. The food is amazing and inexpensive and the pizzas are exactly the same as you would find in the best places in Italy. The desserts are to die for. We had a house special cake dessert which was delicious. Unlike another reviewer, we found the service to be excellent. The waiters were attentive and... More

I had dinner with friends for the first time in this restaurant. Food was absolutely great and price reasonable. I totally recommend it. We tried different appetizers, first dishes, pizza, desserts. Everything was over the expectations. The best in Shanghai.

I visited Bela Napoli with a friend for drinks, and hoped to enjoy a meal afterwards. We chose an outside table, which proved to be a big mistake. No staff came to check whether we wanted more drinks, or food. After 20 mins of waiting, we stood up to go inside to get service. The manager made excuses that the... More

I discovered this place during one of my midday rambles taking some air away from meetings, it turned out to be a great find. We booked a table for the evening and I took my Chinese colleagues with me to hopefully show them what Italian food can be like. None of us was disappointed from the beer the decor and... More

This is a great restaurant they can get overlooked. The style is causal which in this town is a real pleasure. The food is always good. Not great and something you right home about but great value for money and I say with all honestly. My only complaint albeit a minor one is their takeaway food which I personally picked... More

This is the best Italian restaurant in Shanghai. No doubts on that. For a moment it gives you the feeling you are definitely in Italy. The food taste like in Italy. They serve very good wine along with the food. Must have is definitely the risotto and the tuna steak.

The venue had a constant stream of diners flowing through the doors but we were given drinks, food order taken then ignored. No bread basket, no follow up on drinks and we had to ask two different servers for our food. When it did arrive, I was given the wrong dish and then the pasta was not al dente! Rather... More

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.
