Best Service in Town.

If you are looking to eat traditional Italian cuisine, Napoli can offer you a variety of plates on the menu and off the menu. Pizzas, pasta and meats are fine. Save some space up for dessert. A few are made by the owner. If it is busy can be very noisy, but the service is quick for a in and... read more

I had many years without visiting this Italian Restaurant, so I had great memories and when I got there a few months ago the food was as good as always. The staff, I think because I'm not a "frequent customer", didn't treat me so well. They let me and my Mom wait almost an hour just because we get there... More

Food, service and attention is excellent. You must get there not long after opening otherwise the waiting time might be an issue.

One of the best italian restaurants i know. The pizzas are out of this world (specially the shrimp pizza), the fish fresh, pasta perfectly made. Service is extremely fast eventhough restaurant is always full. Would really recommend.

One of my favorites in Panama for over 35 years. i prefer the Obarrio location. Always great service!!! Enjoyed an impromptu dinner with 20 family members. Pizza was excellent compared to other restaurants in Panama. Even for one who has greatly enjoyed pizza in Italy, it was solid. Seated quickly and service was tremendous. When additional family members arrived late,... More

There are two Napoli's in town. The one I am reviewing here is the original located 2 blocks south of "Calle J", and a block east of Avenida de los Martires (Formerly know as "4th of July Avenue" which used to delineate the former Canal Zone from Panama City. Napolis has remained popular since I first dined there in 1975.... More

This is our favorite family restaurant in Panama City. We go several times a month. We have our favorite waiters, and one in particular is splendid. He knows all of our favorites, and starts us off with our cappuccinos and appetizers (ceviche or clams, and pizza) with only a confirmation from us. The food is Italian, and very good. The... More

There is a big mess with Restaurante or Pizzeria Napoli. Probably there are two venues, led by the same owner in Panama City.. We visited The Napoli located at Calle 57 Este /https://www.facebook.com/Napolipanama /. It was very crowdy in the night and two big rooms were occupied mainly by local families with kids. The food, some pastas, chicken and calamari,... More

Pizzeria Napoli is an old establishment which has been around for several decades (the original is still across the Instituto Nacional in the old downtown section). Well known for its pizzas which are quite good. Thin crust and quite tasty, however, main dishes as the shrimp in tomato sauce serve with pasta was a bit mediocre. The tomato sauce reminded... More
