My family and I, all adults, table for 6, enjoyed everything! The music is so nice. You are able to have conversations among one another. The staff is very kind. You are not rushed for anything, from placing your order, to eating your meal, to finishing your conversation. Service had a smile from beginning to end from all staff members. The offering of warm bread and olive oil with its great mixed ingredients was impressive. The food was so delicious! This is not only my say so on the delicious flavor but also of my 5 family members who thoroughly enjoyed their servings of food. The price is just right! We did not order dessert only because my brother baked my birthday cake. Napoli is truly here to adhere, serve and please its valued customers, every time! I highly recommend.

Sropoed in as restaurant was close to hotel. We shared a veggie pizza with meatballs - excellent pizza. The best past was the service - very attentive and made us feel welcome.

Was looking for something close to the house on a rainy Saturday night. Was hopeful that this would be a new local find. The disappointment started pretty quick, service was lackluster. The salad had standing water in the bottom of the bowl and the pasta was overcooked and watery tasting. Not a good overall experience. I am not a snob when it comes to ambiance, but the overall experience was not one that would take me back again. I probably should have ordered the pizza, it did look very good.

I had driven by Napoli so many times and when in a quandary to try something new, opted to give it a try. We had the Veal Parmigiana and Capellini Papa Zack, both of which were excellent. The staff was friendly and efficient and the prices were in line with the food quality. We were not aware that it was a "bring your own bottle" restaurant, but will definitely bring that along with us on our next visit. 🍴

The complimentary bread was very fresh. The garlic dipping sauce was very good.

I had the veal parmesan and fettuccine alfredo. The veal was very tender. Both had the right amount of spices. I love garlic and it seemed to have just the right amount. I thought it was so good that I ate the leftovers for lunch the next day. I'm not a leftover kind of person normally.

The cannolli was very good too.

The only reason that I didn't give it five stars was because service was a little slow when the place wasn't even full. There was a large table that came in several minutes after us and received their order before we received ours. We were only two people.

We will certainly be back. I just wish we lived closer so I could go more often!

Awesome food. The bread is divine. Fantastic waiter, we declined dinner salads and he offered to bag our salads for lunch the following day. And the cannoli... Yum!

My Dad broke his hip and is staying in the rehabilitation hospital right down the road from Napoli. This was our first visit to Napoli and we were pleasantly surprised. My Dad is wheelchair-bound so I was concerned about a long wait for his Father's Day dinner. Thankfully, we were seated immediately for our reservation....service & food were wonderful. My Mom & Dad live in Pasadena and will definitely be returning to Napoli.

I procrastinated for valentines day, and found a time at Napoli. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised. Food was great, service was superb and the prices reasonable. Not normally in Pasadena, but if we are here again, we will definitely come back.

It was our first time here. Husband and I went here for a pre-anniversary dinner. The staff and manager accommodated us, even through the massive Christmas parties that were going on. We had an enjoyable dinner, and liquor/wine were great. The staff was very attentive. Definitely will go back once Christmas is over.

So many places love to blast music and seem to have absolutely no noise dampening. This creates a bar-like party atmosphere which is not conducive to good conversation with the people you are dining with. I have never had that problem here at Napoli's. It is a very relaxed atmosphere with good service and great food.

I had to modify my reservation to 30 minutes later, which was not a problem for this restaurant. When we arrived, my table for 8 was reserved and ready to go.

This is my go-to restaurant for local italian.

The bread and olive dip served prior to the meal is fantastic. My manicotti was very tasty but pretty average. Skip dessert, not worth the expense.

Other than having to wait 20 minutes for our "reserved" table we thought it was a nice place. Wouldn't consider it for another romantic dinner spot though. More of a neighborhood Italian eatery for friends and family. Bar area upstairs was an awkward space but pleasant enough to wait for a table. The blender at the bar was so loud everyone would stop talking while it was running, and it ran for a good while.

It was Valentine's night, we did have a reservation which enabled us to sit promptly. Our waitress was very nice and accommodating. Our meal was fine; not the best Italian I've ever had.
But the kicker was when we had finished our meal, we were visiting/talking and the owner comes over and basically asks us to leave because there's a family who's waiting outside in the cold for a table. That's not our fault. He should have handled his approach a bit more diplomatic. My husband was peeved, to say the least. I guess because we had eaten and were not ordering dessert/coffee and had paid the bill that it was time to leave.
Bad business decision :(

Drinks were TERRIBLE! Ordered a Pina Colada (My FAVORITE drink) and drank maybe 4 sips... Waiter did not ask if he could fix or replace for me. Food was bland, this was supposed to be a date night for my husband and I. Now I know to go to Houston if I want great food. Do not waste your money here!!!

This was our first time at Napoli and we found it via OpenTable. The reviews were great and it lived up to them. Our table was ready when we got there and the owner/mgr Eli even came through and spoke to each table. The food was great and at a great price. As we left he happened to be out front he asked us how we enjoyed the food and offered up some suggestions for next time. We will definitely be going back.
