Extremely loud and unable to talk to my guest. This was peak lunch. As the crowd left it became more bearable. Totally not a place to take clients

My experience at Naples 45 varies depending on time of day. I would say that the lunch hour is pretty frenetic with a lot of business people descending on this establishment. The servers seem to be harried. The food is “meh” and one can hardly hear the person sitting across. Dinner always seems to be better overall. I ordered the misto salad with shrimp...nothing special. The dressing that came with it was heavy/creamy even if the description said red wine vinaigrette which in any other context would be a more liquid consistency. The server was too rushed to get another dressing so offered the balsamic vinegar. My dining companion had the fish and it looked like a chicken cutlet. The convenience of this location is its greatest asset during lunch but I think I’ll make the effort to find another establishment during this busy hour since food and service quality does suffer.

Service was a little slow despite it not being a busy night. Calamari is excellent and the scialatelli with pesto and shrimp was delicious.

As always Naples 45 does not disappoint. I ordered the Chicken Caesar Salad and it was delicious. My colleagues ordered Pizza and the other the Pasta Special. The food is just great for lunch. The place is quite noisy but that sat us near the kitchen and that made it better. Overall a great place to have a business lunch and after work drinks.

This place had great food and was kid friendly with good menus for kids. It has a lot of tables. It was decent value for NYC, which is expensive everywhere. Brennen, our server, was great. He was very helpful, and went out of his way to recommend other kid friendly things to do in the city. Overall, this was a good experience.

Inside the restaurant is so noisy, you have to yell to be heard, so we asked to be seated outside in the shade. The hostess was not very accommodating or friendly and kept showing us tables in the sun. I cannot sit in the sun...so we waiting about 1/2 hour to be a table in the shade.
The waitress was really outstanding. She was the saving grace of this lunch. She was absolutely lovely.
And the pizza was great as was the Caesar salad. The desert was the cream on top. In short - good food - great service and good food. But sit outside whenever you can if you would like to have a conversation and don't like high volume noise.

This restaurant had simple but delicious food at a pretty high price. They also had an attractive but very uncomfortable setting. The restaurant was open, extremely loud, not at all cozy. The plates provided for shared pizza were about the size of a 4x6 notecard. Shared salad was served with 5 inch appetizer plates and uncut lettuce. Nearly Impossible to eat without making a mess, a bit embarrassing to older patrons or those with neuropathy. I would get doordash or takeout if possible to enjoy their tasty food the next time.

My hubby & I arrived at 5:15pm on a Wed. The outdoor area was packed, but inside was not crowded (we ate inside). Hostess greeted us with a smile & seated us immediately. Our server, Edwin, was very attentive & friendly. He took our drink order & brought us a basket of bread & olive oil. We ordered family salad & individual margherita pizzas (one with mushrooms & eggplant, the other with fennel sausage. Food was excellent. Restaurant & restrooms were very clean. We will be back! Note: If you are a fan of Via Napoli in Epcot, you will love this restaurant (both are part of the Patina Group), and the menu & food are almost identical.

As always, a great place to eat with great foos and friendly staff. The only issue is the noise level especially lunch and dinner time.. it's a huge place and the dynamic of the interior is what causes the noise level to be higher than most places.

Slow service in a very loud environment. The food was good but slow service negated an enjoyable lunch. Also, not a good place to hold a business lunch do to very loud background noise.

Luckily, I had reserved an outdoor table. Inside, the noise level was impossibly loud, so three friends meeting for lunch would never have been able to hear each other!
Food and service were very good and we had a nice, leisurely lunch.
