About the restaurant
Café Napoli is a family owned restaurant, established in 1989 by Tony and Kathy Pietoso. Quickly becoming a success, they moved the small basement restaurant to a larger location at the corner of Forsyth and Bemiston in the heart of Clayton. In 2003, sons Ande and Kye expanded their family restaurant by adding Bar Napoli, a swank cocktail lounge. A few years later, Napoli Reserve was added onto Bar Napoli allowing for private event space and an additional bar and lounge for the weekends. After years of a flourishing business, Kathy and Tony decided to take their ventures West to Town and Country where they opened their second location, Napoli2, managed by Ande. Kye has taken the reigns from his father and is now the front man for the 8,000 square foot establishment in Clayton. Café Napoli and Bar Napoli have recently undergone a face lift inside and out. Inside the kitchen, Executive Chef from Napoli2 Jon Berger was recently added to the team, bringing fresh ideas and innovation to the regional Italian specialties.

One of our favorite restaurants in Clayton. Excellent food and service. Even have a parking valet starting at 6pm. I had the eggplant Parmesan appetizer and it was excellent. Lightly breaded so the true flavor of the dish came through. Appetizer was veal piccata and was also excellent. Light and flavorful. A delightful dinner.

The wait staff was very well versed on the menu and explained everything fully. The steak was incredible. Fork tender and oh, so delicious. The prices are a bit high, but the food was cooked to perfection, so you get what you pay for. You will not be disappointed. The dessert we chose was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant for any celebratory occasion or if you just want to treat yourself.

I had dinner on my birthday. A Monday 5pm reservation. The restaurant was not busy at all. There was one small group of about 7 in the bar for Happy Hour. A little loud, but they left shortly after our arrival. The hostess asked me my age which shocked me because well, that's a bit personal. To be fair she appeared pretty young and most likely doesn't know this is a bit off putting. Onto the food. SPECTACULAR!! We moved to a booth in the bar to get the Happy Hour prices for apps and drinks. Shrimp cocktail. Great. Red blend, and House margarita-reasonable prices and very good. The meal was hands down FANTASTIC!! Halibut for me and the lobster fried rice (not much lobster to be found-but tasty) and Brussel Sprouts. They gave me a free birthday dessert which was Hazelnut something topped with salted caramel. ALL of it was great. The service was good. Again, this was Monday, and it was less than 25 dinners in the entire place. Excellent all the way around. My first time going and will absolutely return. 5 stars for all of it.
