La Bella Napoli Italian Restaurant is tucked out of the way on Shoal Line Boulevard right where the road makes a couple sharp turns. It is slightly north of the Weeki Wachee River.
The dining room is darkened to provide an intimate setting. The decor is old world Italian with Italian music softly playing. The food is excellent. They carry the usual Italian favorites of pizza and pasta. They also have more unique fare.
The meal starts out with bread and a mixture of olive oil and spices followed by a side salad (depending on what you ordered). Their lunch portions are on the larger side and quite good. We tried the cheese ravioli and the manicotti. The manicotti was covered with generous amounts of melted mozzarella and the ravioli was cooked until it was tender.
It is recommended that you make reservations. They only have about a dozen tables. The wait can be significant without a reservation.
The restaurant originally opened at Kass Circle in 1991. They sold that restaurant and opened a new restaurant at the present location in Hernando Beach in 2010.
