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

Every time I go to Nappy's, I order off the chef's specials menu and I'm never disappointed. Each dish has had a wonderful blending of flavors whether from fresh herbs or balsamic reduction. It's one of my favorite Gainesville restaurants. Nice and courteous wait staff as well.

Went to eat at Nappys for my son's 19th birthday. You get a birthday meal free. 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...

We are sorry to hear about your son's birthday experience not being very good. Sorry he did not like the Free dinner, Ziti is a long time favorite of many of our customers (including me) but yes it is filled with cheese and less tomato sauce...if there is a next time, I think you might like one of our saucer...

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.
