A word from Naples 45 Ristorante e Pizzeria
An authentic Neapolitan pizzeria and Italian restaurant situated in the landmark MetLife Building at Grand Central Station at E.45th Street, Naples 45 offers al fresco dining in the warmer months and tantalizing regional Southern Italian specialties with friendly take-out service and gourmet brick-oven slices to go. Naples 45 was awarded the coveted certification of "La Vera Pizza Napoletana," in recognition of serving authentic Neapolitan pizza made with traditional ingredients, methods, and wood-burning ovens - one of only two such awards in New York City.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The location of the restaurant is perfect for the group that attended from Westchester, Brooklyn and New Jersey. We were quite pleased by the reception and service of the staff. The food we chose was delicious. The occasion for our meeting was to celebrate a birthday. The presentation of the candle on a fabulous slice of cake was perfect."

  • "The thin crust pizza was good, but they need to offer another size. We were two women and a 7 year old. The small pizza would have been too small and the large pizza was way too large and expensive. We wound up taking half home on the train!"

  • "Loved the food - large pizza is huge! Chicken Salad was really good. Too noisy for me. I was there to catch up with old friends and it was hard to hear. Service was outstanding."

  • "We'd turned up for an 8:30pm reservation for a group of 12, of whom 8 were from out of the country, about half an hour late (terrible rain delays) and about 15 minutes before the kitchen closed. The very friendly wait-sfaff helped us place our orders before the kitchen closed, were constantly around to check on us. As this was a family reunion after many years, we ended up chatting late into the night, past closing. The wait staff did not bother us or hover around us to get us out. The dining area is modern, large, well-lit and airy; faces 45th street. The thin-crust margherita, pepperoni, funghi and piccante (spicy chicken) pizzas were very good. The last two are my favourites. The cheese cake (not New York style) was excellent."

  • "This was my second time here. The first time was a late lunch & it was excellent. My second time it was evening & it was still great but a different vibe: louder & more poppin' at the bar. But the food is top notch & I dig the location."

  • "My table outside was ready when I arrived at 6:30 PM and I was seated immediately. It was a great spring evening. The waiter was very attentive and professional about timing the arrival of the food as well as keeping our glasses full. He was also very astute about a difficult personal conversation we were having and made sure we had privacy. He got a big tip and my gratitude. All in all, this was a great experience with both the reservation service and the restaurant."

  • "During my recent visit to Naples 45, I had the soft-shell crab which came highly recommended. I was a bit hesitant, not having had soft-shell crab before. I was absolutely delighted with the dish....it was scrumptious! Thanks Chef Steve....you will be missed!!!!! "

  • "I love everything that Chef Steve cooks....his food is always amazing!!!! I was there at Naples 45 again last night. I had the burrata appetizer, which was soooo good and soooo fresh; plus the lentil with pancetta soup - OMG, you could taste the pancetta; and then the porkchop, which was so moist and wonderfully tasty! Thanks Chef Steve - your food is ALWAYS phenominal!!!!"

  • "It is decorated like a terminal and the noise level is also maximum loud like a terminal. But the food was surprisingly delicious and well prepared. The two pastas that we ordered were perfect to its texture and taste. The branzino fish was also excellent. The service was at its best. It was beyond our expectation. We will go back again regularly."

  • "Great spot if you're looking for a good quick meal before hoping on a train or going to the theater. The pizzas are especially delicious. Because it is big, there always seems to be tables."

  • "I met a friend for dinner at Naples 45 since she's a commuter and uses Grand Central for her train. The place was so noisy that it was difficult to carry on a conversation without shouting at each other. The food is OK - my lasagna wasn't very hot. I might try it again, if only for the convenient location. Price, including tax and tip, was $60 for 1 lasagna, 1 glass of wine, 1 large salad. I would recommend Naples 45, but with a caveat."

  • "Dined at Naples 45 for the Pre-Fixe on Valentines Day. The food took awhile but the service was outstanding. Nice wine and beer list."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We clearly hit Naples 45 on a bad day. Their ovens weren't worked, due to a "fire condition" nearby, so they couldn't serve many of their signature dishes. Still, what was available was good. We'll try again when everything is working."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "Overall, we had a very good experience. Although the pizza oven is not working, two of us ordered a flat tube pasta with a red meat sauce recommended by waiter. It was delicious! The calamari is very tasty and has a nice crunch. My friends and I sat there and chatted for hours--no problem. It was fantastic. Will definitely go back."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Moments from your train, Grand Central commuters may find this spot hard to resist. Yet dinner left much to be desired. Food was okay... calamari and eggplant appetizers were the best thing served. Unfortunately, we hadn't made a dent in them when our entrees were served. It's not like they needed the tables, the place was empty, so I'm not sure why we were rushed. The waitress repeatedly came over to prod us into ordering when I had made it clear that we would let her know when we were ready. I thought the lasagne entree I ordered was of the quality of something I could get in any fast food Italian place. Meh."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "I've dined here several times and it continues to get better. Our server Edwin was gracious and attentive. The lentil soup was good. Order a few Picolli Plates to start... They did not have pizza but their are an abundance of other options."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "The best deal here is happy hour. Complimentary pizza, cheese and cured meats at the bar, when you buy a drink. Otherwise the highly hyped pizza is just that. Hyped. It is good. But far from great. Licensed pizza authenticity certificate from Italy? I guess that does not really make this pizza stand out from the other great pizza made in this city without the certification. WIGB? Yes"

  • "Great experience. While I wish the pizza oven had been running, the service was very swift for all three courses of our meal. The wait staff does hover a bit but only to make sure you have full glasses of your choice drink. We were on our way to a Broadway play and this delightful gem was in a terrific location for our walk."

  • "We ate here during our Christmas trip to NYC. The food was really good - the pizzas and pasta were all excellent. However, the service wasn't great. The welcome was curt, and our waitress, while very attentive, clearly had too many customers to serve. We had to wait far too long for our food. Hopefully we visited on an off night, as it's a nice venue and the food is great."

  • "We had a Boxing day dinner here in 2013. 2 children and 4 adults. The eggplant parmagiana is so good we just kept ordering more. So are the rice balls! This is very authentic Neapolitan cuisine. The pizza was gorgeous! The fish dishes are done perfectly. The pistachio gelato was the best anyone had tasty with a nice follow of the salt which made it seem this was made in-house. I have been here many times in a group and it is really fun and tasty! Highly recommend and the location is great for everyone...right upstairs from Grand Central in the Met Life building facing out to 45th Street. PS There is a simple kids menu too. Staff is very hurried but good and accomodating."

  • "I found this restaurant while searching places near my hotel. Reading the reviews it sounded really good so we decided to give it a shot. I was not disappointed. I had the pizza piccante that came with chicken sausage, diced tomatoes, pepper flakes, provolone, and mozzarella it was literally some of the best pizza I have EVER had. It was spot on to true Italian pizza you would find in Italy. The crust was thin but not crackery, the crust was the right amount soft and crispy and the bottom had the slight char real pizza should have. For dessert I had the torta coarse ak cioccolato Basically chocolate almond cake and I added a scoop of homemade vanilla gelato. It was fantastic. Amazing food won't be disappointed!"
