New restaurant 8 of 10 for #51 on my 101 list! Having my parents in town was the perfect time to try something new (and we did multiple!). I had heard of this little Italian place in Edgehill Village from one friend and my dad loves pizza more than anything. So on Cinco De Mayo (yes, blasphemy), while everyone else waited for hours for margaritas and nachos, my parents and I wandered into the hidden alley of Edgehill Village to find Bella Napoli.
The atmosphere was pretty great, especially for an authentic Italian pizzeria. Tables line the alley and luckily it was the perfect night for us to sit outside. My mom and I split the Melenzane con Ricotta – baked stuffed eggplant. Delicious and very cheesy. Then we shared a Sorrentino pizza with mozzarella, mushrooms, pancetta, and parmigiano. It was good, very fresh ingredients, but I think I liked my dad’s Calzone even better.
If you’re looking for some new, fresh Italian this is definitely the place to go!
