Napolatano's food is tasty. However, the service is not great. Last time we visited, they did not put the right toppings on our pizza (we did not complain, though) but they certainly charged for them!

We held our son's and daughter in law's Rehearsal Dinner at Napolatano's on April 17, 2015 and could not ask for a better group of people to work with as well as the food and reserved dining was outstanding.

Napolatano's has one of the best pizza's in this area. I really enjoy sitting at the bar and enjoying a beer with some friends. The staff is always courteous and fun, while the food is always really good! I love this place!

I was back at this place for an office meetting. Again, food was a disaster. A couple years ago I visit with my family and ordered lasagna. I can tell you, frozen lasagna from publix is much better. This time I ordered an antipasto salad and I got a mountain of lettuce with a few slices of provolone, salami and... More

I am sorry that you do not like Napolatanos, usually Lasagna is everyone's favorite here. It is one of our biggest sellers that we make from scratch daily. In preparing our antipasto we use only the best imported meats and cheeses so that is why it is $13.99. Again sorry. Ginger Nappy owner More

We came here for a dinner with my husband's coworkers. I've only heard great things about this place so I was looking forward to coming.

My only complaint about this restauant is that it isn't open for lunch. If you can get past the amazing desserts on display as you walk in, you will barely have room for the huge portions they serve. I love everything I have ever ordered but the pizza is outstanding and a must try. Prices are reasonable for what you... More

Thanks for the BEST PIZZA IN TOWN AWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I agree, for 38 years........and the great thing about Nappys is we will modify the pizza to be thick or thin crust (a new favorite for a lot of people) we also will put the ingredients on top of the cheese or underneath( totally different flavor) and with those combinations and the...

Great food & wonderful service! I had the shrimp & scallop fettuccini and my bf had the ribeye. Both were perfect. Neither of us cared for the risotto, however. Salad & garlic bread before the meal was very very good. You could easily spoil your appetite eating that!

Napolatanos is a must stop for our family when we are in Gainesville. Although Italian is the specialty, the menu is broad and includes great steaks and seafood. Not fancy just good food at a reasonable price. A great place for families to eat. We have never had anything bad at Nappys! Love the pasta, calzones, oysters and seafood, daily... More
