Always have a great meal at Naples 45. Service is excellent and the food is very good. Large portions and they move quick without rushing you. It’s always very busy and it’s a large restaurant so it can get a little noisy but not so loud you can’t have conversation. Perfect for a casual dinner or a nice occasion. Outdoor dining in the nice weather is the best, but the ambiance inside is warm and inviting in the colder months as well.

Good food but poor acoustics, it’s noisy. Pizza and salads are good for a group lunch or dinner.

Soups and salads very tasty. Table service perfectly fine. Hostess did not connect my companion and I when we arrived separately and only by chance did I see him seated elsewhere half an hour after we each arrived. Biggest problem was the noise level. This place seriously needs and could well afford sh investment in some acoustic improvement to the ceiling.

Acoustics are really bad due to the building design. The food is good enough - nothing special but better than most places. Prices are reasonable. Location is uber convenient for commuters who want to meet with Manhattan based folk.

I will say, it was fast. I went in for a 1 PM lunch reservation by myself and I was out before 1:30, after having soup and a pasta. The soup was fair. I ordered linguine with manila clams for $24 and it came out very quickly. It was so hot, that I can only imagine that it was precooked and then reheated in a microwave, or perhaps its components were. The taste was fair. I certainly didn't feel like it was worth $24 but nor would I have sent it back. The waiter asked me if I wanted bread with my pasta...an odd time to ask. Overall, meh. I am not inclined to rush back, though the pizzas that other ordered looked good and if I were in the neighborhood and wanted to split a pizza with someone, I might give it another chance.

I enjoyed a delicious salad and pizza for lunch. The service was fast and efficient. Naples 45 is the perfect spot for a quick business meal if you're around Grand Central.

I had personal pizza which was delicious and the crust was thin and crispy.
Overall, it was a great experience with food, service, and the ambiance.

Thanks

Very good and attentive service, food is good enough.
But the noise level is ridiculously high. It is difficult to have a conversation there.

The food was good but the noise level made it hard to hear a business conversation and it was pretty expensive for what was ordered.

Conveniently located for my spouse and I, Naples 45 is easy to get to via public transportation in midtown Manhattan. There is indoor and outdoor seating with a bar in both settings as well as full service restaurant serving pizza and mostly Italian dishes. We both ordered salads and beer; my beer was flat and her salad lacked the chicken mine had. The service was excellent. Don’t worry, we would return!

I would recommend Naples 45 with a strong caveat -- the noise level is outrageous and no one can hear anything. The night we were there there were a lot of people in the bar area and not so many at tables. Those of us at the tables could not hear each other and I was with 2 millenials. They couldn't hear each other. I will not go back there during the height of lunch or dinner hours due to this very annoying and uncomfortable noise level. Couldn't you put glass enclosure around the bar so the noise doesn't deafen everyone else? The food and service were good. But that noise level is losing you customers.

Noisy place, but good value for money and food. Not a place for official business lunches but good value for informal business lunches / meetings

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

I'm sorry I have to say quality of food is average here. Prosciutto was low quality and when you order Parmigiano in a restaurant that is supposed to be Italian or italian inspired you expect the real one not the new jersey fake version. The manager was intelligent and offered to remove the cost. But still overall you can do better as menu is expensive for what it offers.

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.

Perfect place for dinner outdoors when meeting someone who needs to take the train home from Grand Central; classic food and great service.
