We went to this restaurant before going to a concert at the nearby university and were greeted very warmly by the hostess and then waitress. I chose a seafood dish with Mediterranean veggies and instead of pasta, chose risotto instead . Loved it. My husband chose chicken parm. The sauce had too much oregano which he hates. So for that...

thanks for coming to Napolatanos on your most recent trip to Gainesville. I am sorry that your husband didn't like our homemade sauce, everyone has such different tastes when it comes to sauce (gravy) I remember growing up in an Italian neighbor and there were always arguments on who had the BEST sauce (gravy) some garlicky, some sweet, spicy and...

We were travelling through Gainesville with our dog, so rather than leave him in the hotel room by himself, we called ahead and ordered, then went to pick up our dinner. It was ready when we arrived and the staff were very friendly. The restaurant is a bit out of the way -- drive to the end of the drive... More

I like to listen to the live music on the patio. I only wish there were drink specials on Sunday. Maybe a ladies night or something like that. The service is excellent, I always ask for my favorite server, Desiree!

The most surprising thing about Napolitano's is the number of people who give it a high rating. It is a typical small-town Southern red-gravy Italian. Heavy and over-done food which suggests it was held on a steam-table too long. This is not bad food, it is just not good food. I don't think Gainesville knows much about Italian food. I... More

Is the food bad? No, but at the same time, it isn't exceptional. Over the years, I have had food from here, and year after year, the word that sticks out in my mind to describe it is "overrated." People say it's better than it is, but the reality is that the food is average, the prices are average, and... More
