After a long day of travel, we spotted this restaurant on a fairly busy corner. We enjoyed the food: tortellini with bolognese sauce and ricciole with spinach. W e were just a bit too tired for a slower paced dining experience. It does provide a wonderful spot to eat, people watch and good food, just don't go there if you... More

Great food, excellently prepared. Very large restaurant with lots of space for large parties. Good service from an experienced, knowledgeable waiter. Close to the city centre and one of the smaller canals.

Arrived late in Haarlem, staying at a guest house virtually across the street from Napoli. From the time you walk in you sense that this is a well run restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. All staff spoke good English and very obliging. My son and I both had pasta dishes, both very good. I ordered a side salad with my... More

I love to visit this restaurant as they have the best Italian food I have ever experienced. While in Haarlem we eat here often & may I recommend the pasta Parmesana, which is paste cooked in a Parmesan wheel at your table, it's my favourite. The food & drinks are very well priced.

I recently visited Haarlem again after 40 years to see family, and took them for a meal to this restaurant and although it has still the same owners the food quality and service was not the same. Firstly the wait staff are abrupt and rude at some instances especially if your a tourist, secondly one of the meals served was... More

We ate here on our last night in Haarlem, the hotel said it was average and overrated, forget it, it was fantastic. The staff could not do enough to make us feel welcome. The food was excellent. All in all a great night out. Would certainly go again. Try the pasta sauce, it comes in a whole parmesan flamed and... More

Like the review below says, there is a lot of theatre here. Lots of preparing things at tables, dramatic flourishes of herbs, quick flashes of flames, great steaming pots of pasta and shell fish rolled to tables on dinner trolleys and served up there and then for the guests. It's a fun place! The food is not bad as well,... More

As others have commented, this is not your typical Italian restaurant. A little bit theater and a little bit good food. The service to other tables was as entertaining as our own food. It is definitely a good show. The food was variable; I had a pizza (excellent) my spouse had eggplant and a salad (stunningly) mediocre. Some of the... More

We had a delicious late lunch at Napoli. My husband and I split a salad and calzone and it was more than we could eat. The owner was delightful and spent time visiting with us. I highly recommend you make Napoli a place to dine while visiting Haarlem.
