Office Holiday Party

We had our office Christmas party at Napolatanos. What an awesome time we had! Not only were they able to accommodate our group (around 60) but also provided a private room, and the food was excellent, the service was superb, and they were able to accommodate a band.

This place is just okay. It kind of reminds me of a low budget banquet hall. The food is hit or miss. Usually a miss. The pizza is gummy and the cheese is greasy. All the chhese fell off the pizza slice before I could get the thin, wet crust in my mouth. It has ugly carpet throughout, and the... More
