We have ordered sandwhiches, salads, soup and pasta dishes. All have been very good. Their desserts are delicious. We... read more

Met some friends at Napolitano's tonight and had another great meal. This place never disappoints. Friendly staff, great atmosphere, and the best outdoor seating in Gainesville.

This restaurant is a real treat! Away from the college crowd (just across I-75). The food was spectacular. Make sure you go there hungry! The portions are huge. Save room for a chocolate cannoli. Very reasonable. Don't worry when you see the full parking lot... there is a lot of room inside.

I have been here with my friends for dinner on a couple of occasions. Nice atmosphere for family and friends. Loud but still enjoyable. Good food. Will go back.

Delicious italina food- pizza, pasta, desserts. Every itme is prepared fresh and hot. I love their Grab & Go pasta meals. Feeds 6-8 hungry adults easily. Fun entertainment nights and it is a place I feel comfortable taking my family to eat.

If you have kids of different ages, you know how hard it can be to find activities, restaurants, movies, and other things that will satisfy them both (or more).
