This is a nice family owned restaurant with the standard fare of a small Italian restaurant. The prices are reasonable and the service was fast and friendly. I would definitely return and visit again.

Quality seems to have slipped from 2 years ago ... tomato sauce lacks authenticity - a little too bright. Veal was over cooked - dry and a bit tough. Polenta appetizer would be better with a rich tomato sauce.

We are not from the area and didn't want to travel far from our hotel. We decided to eat there because it looked interesting. We were not disappointed. We loved the quaint restaurant as soon as we drove up to the door. The food was delicious and we were not rushed to order, but could peruse the menu for just the right meal.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on January 25, 2017

Traveling and staying near the airport, we found this restaurant online. We had their pizza, Greek salad, and Caesar Salad along with a pitcher of beer. All were excellent, along with the service. As a bonus, we sat next to an older couple who said they come to this restaurant at least once a week. So, the locals love it too! We certainly were not disappointed. The only problem we had was with google maps, which kept sending us to the wrong address. Thankfully, while we were trying to find the restaurant, a local, believing we looked lost, asked if we needed help. When we explained our situation, he gave us directions to the restaurant and said that google does this all the time for this place. Be fore warned!

We had a group of 14 and they set us up in the back room. It was very nice that we had it all to ourselves. We will definitely come back here the next time we are in town for a large group event.

The food was good - it's not fancy but a neighborhood restaurant it seems. There were four of us and everyone enjoyed their food.
Two had fish, one had pizza, and another had meet ravioli with meat sauce and loved it.

We have considered DiNapoli a family favorite for many years. Our experience that day started with a very negative greeting from one of the regular female staff there to the extent we were getting ready to abandon our reservation. If it wasnt for the young gentleman who seated us at the bar so we could watch the bktbl playoff game and our pleasant server, Jeremy we truly wouldve walked out. The calamari appetizer which we reularly order wasnt crispy but soggy & bland. Luckily, the Chicken Risotto special I ordered made up for it.
Although we have always enjoyed coming here, this last experience has pushed Di Napoli out of our Top 3 favorite restaurants. I was thoroughly disappointed by our initial "greeting" especially since her approach was extremely loud and condescending.

A pleasant alternative to the fry-heavy menus and bar food at many of the airport hotels. Minnestrone was good and fresh tasting. Spaghetti Bolognese (with a side of grilled vegetables) met my needs well. And a decent house Primitivo. Attentive but not overpowering service. Downtown South San Francisco, easy parking. I'll be back.

All 3 of us had the veal scallopini for lunch. It was good, but nothing special as the meat wasn't quite tender enough. We each had a separate dessert and all of us liked our choices and they were generous portions.

For some reason they told my two companions that arrived first, that there was no reservation under my name, but obviously they found it.

Looks like the most popular item here is the pizza.

The restaurant has not changed. Good food, nice and pleasant waitresses, friendly server.

I ordered different meal rather than the usual, and it was a wonderful change.

Good as always, and thank you.

I needed to get my daughter to the airport. but so glad with the quick service. The veal with mushroom plate my husband ordered was very tasty. I on the other hand order the pepperoni pizza, and pear salad. The pizza had very little sausage, looked more like a cheese pizza and the salad was quite tasteless. Hope next time we have better luck with food. I know when the restaurant was smaller the food was tastier.

They had a great selection for dietary needs. The space was intimate enough for us to converse. The mussels were in a delectable wine sauce - perfect for dipping - yes we did dip.
I had the chicken cannelloni.

We were looking for a simple place for dinner near the airport. It was just about what I expected a local family run Italian restaurant and not very attractive. It did not seem very busy at 8 pm during the middle of the week but the service was slow. From the time we entered to when we got served took about an hour and we only had one course per person. The pasta dishes were OK but it looks like we would have been served quicker had we ordered pizza which would have been just one item and seems to be what they do best.
