    They made a mistake with our reservation so we still had to wait about 20 minutes before we got a table. And then the service wasn’t particularly friendly and never brought some of the things we asked for.

    We dine at Napolese quite regularly, and the food does not disappoint. We sat on the wine bar side, which is dark and intimate. The food did not disappoint; it was excellent. The pizzas were hot and delicious. Our waiter was fine but could have been better throughout the meal. Seemed a bit subpar to regular waiters at this restaurant. Overall, great experience!

    It’s always good. I miss the clubby sofas. It’s the first restaurant we came to visit before we moved to Indy and it was nice to celebrate the new year. The lobster pizza was nice and the Hamaker’s Corner is always good. The meatballs are always delicious. Service great.

    Pizza is authentic Italian and wood fired. Good wine selection and great conversation atmosphere. We snacked and ate and enjoyed our visit in the bar side of the restaurant. It was good night out with friends.

    This was an amazing little spot for date night. Low light, low levels of noise. Service was great. If you enjoy gourmet and unique pizzas without the old school greasy pizzeria feel, this place if for you. Set on a quiet street, outdoor seating available for good weather. A tax pricy but totally worth it.

    The restaurant was not full, but they seemed to be doing a large number of takeout orders. Had a reservation, and arrived on time, but was sent an email that we missed it (had to secure it with a credit card). Our server did not make us feel welcome and was brusque to the point of being rude. Waited 15 minutes to be offered drinks. Waited 30 more minutes to receive the appetizer that required no cooking. Waited another 25 minutes for the entree. Was offered a box for leftovers, and when we asked to order dessert our server acted as if we had asked her to go make it herself! By now the restaurant was over 1/2 empty and they had another 1 1/2 hours til close. Waited another 15 minutes for that, and the espresso was cold.

    We love Napolese! Never disappoints and this night was no different. We had a caprese salad, a Make your Own pizza & a couple of Negronis. Everything was fresh and tasted wonderful. We sat outside & server was attentive & gave great service.

    Gluten free is here to stay! All of the other chain and independently owned pizzerias in town have figured out how to make GREAT gluten free crust. I have tried it several times and it is by far the worst I've had. Even asking for it extra done doesn't help. Limp, overly moist, etc. Puccini's, Seasons 52 (flatbreads), Donato's, and Domino's as examples that have mastered it. Time for Napolese to figure it out, too!

    Service is great! Food is pretty good, too. It was freezing cold, so we got our sweatshirts out of the car, and like most restaurants these days it was really loud. Will definitely go back.

    I loved that they accommodated us for having all ages and still reserved a table for us. We sat by the window and the a/c was so high we were very cold. Food was good. A bit noisy with not many people so I’m not sure how. Difficult to have conversations.
