I had the pleasure of dining outside on the patio on a Sunday afternoon/ evening. A very talented local band played until 930 pm. Our dinners were delicious, the wait staff hardworking and attentive, the atmosphere very warm, friendly, inviting. There were different small celebrations going on at various tables around us. More ladies dancing than men... hint...hint! We enjoyed... More

My husband and I came to Gainesville for a quick getaway. We used Tripadvisor to search for restaurants near our hotel. Napolatano's was first on the list that came up and now we know why. When we walked in the door we were greeted enthusiastically by several staff. They asked us if we would prefer a quiet space or one... More

I ordered the baked ziti which was very salty due to the large amount of cheese, the noodles were falling apart and ripping into shreds when I tried to pick up with a fork and the only place the sauce was, was on top...

prompt and excellent service with good food and fair prices. I had the grouper fingers which were very good. The coleslaw is creamy which is the way I prefer it.

Ohhh My, Delicious! We stopped into Napolatano’s at the recommendation of the Baymont hotel. I had the Steak Salad, WOW, hands down, the very best steak salad I have ever had. The Angus sirloin was perfection and the salad fresh, crisp and green. At 9 p.m.! My traveling partner had a Rueben Sandwich with very fine homemade dressing and excellent... More

I recently hosted a meeting with 25 people and brought them here for dinner. Ginger was a HUGE help planning with me and the service staff members were excellent! The food was very good and I would certainly recommend this place for groups and for grabbing a dinner on your own. Highly recommend.
