John Mainella, an enterprising youth from the countryside near Naples, began making bread in a small shop in downtown Troy. Soon the unique flavor of his special breads began to attract a small but enthusiastic following. Business grew rapidly as cakes and pastries were added to his line of bakery items. Today Bella Napoli products, still produced by John and the Mainella family, have achieved a reputation far and wide for their unforgettable taste. We have two stores; one in Latham, NY and one in Troy, NY.
