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.

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.
