We love this spot, however that night everything was VERY salty. Service was amazing, the ambiance was great. They are taking all of the correct precautions for COVID and we felt incredibly safe.

Best pizza in the city, brick oven made with fresh ingredients. Authentic to Italy and naples pizza. Ask for the complimentary olives. We love the Margherita pizza And the Caesar salad. Ask for Miguel he is the best server.

We've been going to Napolese for years, and it's never disappointed. The Wine Bar was a great addition, and there's not better pairing of great pizza and great wines/cocktails anywhere in Indy.

This was our first visit, but it won't be our last. The new wine bar provides a wonderful atmosphere. Our service was outstanding with helpful wine suggestions. The food was great. I highly recommend the vegetarian chop salad, which is ample size for sharing. My husband loved the meatballs and the goat cheese appetizer was fabulous.

We Love this Place, we have been here about 15 times and have always gotten the margarita pizza and caeser salad both top notch hands down the best Italian wood fire brick pizza in Indiana. On this night we got George.. AKA the worst server ever. I ordered another pizza to try new and told him please no mushrooms. So first he only brought us drinks and the free olives. Nothing else... Other people brought us our food.. He didn't feel our drinks or anything.. When our food came out the pizza was burnt and the other one had mushrooms... I had to go find a server to get parmesan cheese.. George did nothing about the pizzas.. He did not remake the pizzas he charged us full price for everything..i spoke to the manager and he will take care of our next visit. Please if your server is George ask for a new server.

A bit of a disappointment considering the quality of other restaurants in the Hoover owned group. The server was rather indifferent, and the service was slow. It took over an hour to be served. The brussels sprout salad was very good but the pizza was on a limp doughy crust. The noise level is pretty high , so don’t plan on having much of a discussion.

I made reservations before a show with my sister and teenage niece, so we needed to stay on schedule. When we arrived (15 min early), the host informed us that our reservation wouldn't work because it only applies to groups where all parties are 21+. I have since confirmed on the reservation website that this was not noted as a limitation, so plan accordingly. We waited in line for a table on the family side to open up. After standing there for 15 minutes after our reservation time, I asked the server in the section if the bar seats in the family section were open seating. The answer was yes! Why wasn't this presented as an option initially when our reservation was cancelled? Finally seated, I shared our time constraint with the server. I'm not certain if he helped make it happen or the kitchen is always that fast, but the food came super fast. He didn't really check back after it arrived, however. My niece was a little disappointed in her pizza; thought the center portion was soggy. Our salads were good. I caught the servers' attention and asked for the bill; we made it to the show ok.

Before we moved to Indy, this was our first dining experience. It didn't disappoint four months later and now that we live here. Because my partner has celiac disease, it's always a trying experience to find great eats. I can't recommend the restaurant enough.

We love Napolese, but please do something about the booths in the back. They sit so low my chin is almost on the top of the table and when you lean back you are very far from the table and the person across from you. Lots of pillows to sit on and lean on would be a great fix!!

Food was amazing! Definitely enjoyed the drinks and the array of pizzas we ordered. However, We had to keep asking our waiter for drinks and had to keep grabbing his attention. Felt like he was serving everyone else around us before our table even though we had a reservation, the fact that we were sat before the other tables around us, and didn’t have that large of a group. Honestly the service really ruined the experience for us. Thought this would have been one of the nicer locations and would have staff that were friendly. The keystone Napolese is probably the best one!

It felt like the server was almost annoyed we were there but ultimately did get our order correct. The food was ok but not even in a top 10 favorite pizza list. Ambiance was beautiful, wine was lovely, price was expected but the food and service could have been better for all the pomp and circumstance.
