The food is delicious (the Tuscan soup is great for cold weather!) and very reasonably priced. Wait staff is very attentive and helpful. They have a nice wine selection that goes well with the menu. Highly recommend!

We ate at Napolese a week prior and had a great experience but this time, not so much. I believe it was because it was so busy and under staffed. The pizza was good but cold and 2 others in our party ordered entrees that took an incredible long time. The noise level was so loud we couldn’t carry on a conversation. We will go back but not on a Friday or Saturday.

My wife and I enjoyed Napolese very much. We both got the margarita pizza, which was fantastic. I got the cheesecake for dessert, and it did not disappoint. It was one of the best I have ever eaten! We will definitely go back next time we’re in Indy.

We’d seen Mike G.’s recommendation so decided to try this place. He was spot on, as usual. We shared focaccia and it was brilliant. Soft and textural with a delicious crunch on the outside. They give complimentary olives and they were so good together. I had a cup of Tuscan soup and I’d have eaten a gallon. At first, I thought it was a bit bland and then the flavors hit the back of my palate. Heaven. My husband had a meat laden pizza and I had margherita with egg, Rachel style (that’s with arugula). The meat was insane and I believe from Smoking Goose, which makes sense. The crust is proper crust and reminds me of NY or Rome. I never thought I’d find this in Indianapolis and I’m so happy. The prices are reasonable for the quality, ambience and service. We’re definitely headed back.

The service was friendly and attentive. Our food was delicious. We had the meatball appetizer, a pizza with Brussel Sprouts and fennel and the other was the basic margherita pie. We shared cheesecake for dessert which came with an apple, pistachio caramel sauce that was really sweet.

I took my 3 grandchildren for dinner before theater. They enjoyed the "upscale" experience, and we all loved the food, especially the beet salad and meatball appetizer. The server was very helpful and accommodating to the children. I would definitely recommend, and will return for an "adult" experience.

Met friends for Saturday dinner. Was not very crowded. New seasonal menu had some attractive new items, including the Fennel and Fowl pizza which we ordered. It was great! Service, food, and ambience all were excellent.

The quality of the food and service remains excellent even after months of dealing with the pandemic. We chose to sit outside on a perfect Friday evening. The only issue was that bees were attracted to the food. Not the restaurant's fault, of course. Fortunately, they were not too aggressive and we managed.

Almost all good. Pizzas were excellent! Toppings were plentiful and high quality, good crust, etc. Service was solid. The Napolese Old Fashioned was the only disappointment (a bit watery due to lots of crushed ice).

The pizza was delicious-it was just the right mix of cheese, tomato sauce and toppings. The salads are all good but we would recommend the chop salad.

Just a mother/daughter night out and Napolese is one of our favorite spots especially outside. Food is consistently good! The Haymakers Corner is a go-to pie. Love the double chopped salad but tried the Caesar. So fresh and light! Service is always so good.

The restaurant was blow your head off loud. A family came with small children and unfortunately they allowed them to run around the restaurant. We were hoping for quiet evening and we got headaches instead. Won’t be back.

We always enjoy the ambience at this little neighborhood gem. I had to give an overall rating of 4 due to the poor quality of the gluten free crust. All of the other pizzerias in town have continued to evolve their GF offerings as the ingredients and recipes improve. It’s simply subpar. Go check out your competitors! Secondly, I asked our waiter what meat options were available for my pizza other than pork-based. The answer...gee, now that I think about it, none? Best wishes!
