Very disappointing. Nothing about this restaurant goes above cafeteria food. Nothing is "home made". I don't think they make anything at the restaurant. The pasta isn't even made in- house. The sauce???? This is not, an Italian restaurant. This is a Italian Cafeteria.

I am so sorry that you were disappointed with Napolatanos food. I know from growing up in NY that many people have different tastes, some like their sauce (gravy) garlicky, some spicy or some semi sweet, we make our huge pot of semi sweet sauce daily, so I am sorry you did not like it. We do have several dishes... More

Grouper was 3 days old, vegetables were tasteless, even the kids' pizza was worse than frozen pizza at 1/4 the price. I'm embarrassed to have brought my husband here for his birthday and mad about spending money here. Would not recommend at all.

Napolatano's, a Gainesville fixture for decades, is well worth a visit.

Whether seated in the dining room, the bar or the expansive outdoor patio Napolatano's is sure to please. Napolatano's hosts a trivia night on... More

Every time I go to Nappy's, I order off the chef's specials menu and I'm never disappointed. Each dish has had a wonderful blending of flavors whether from fresh herbs or balsamic reduction. It's one of my favorite Gainesville restaurants. Nice and courteous wait staff as well.
