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

We had a rehearsal dinner there and everything was wonderful. The staff was courteous, prompt, and polite. The food was delicious and with generous servings that everyone was satisfied with their meal. Thank you for making my brother's wedding rehearsal dinner memorable and enjoyable with no problems!!! -Donna Thomas

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

We had pizza slices and salad--both were excellent. There was a large group of family/friends in the dining area and the noise was so loud we couldn't have a conversation without yelling at each other.
