We planned a private gathering for about 20 people using one of their private party rooms. Working with Ginger, the owner of Napolitano's was a pleasure as she gave us all of the options that would suit our group, menus, appetizers, etc. We also had the added feature of a large screen TV in the room to entertain us with...

The food is always delicious. This time I tried the Prime Rib... not my favorite, but hanging out at the bar with fellow Gators watching the end of the Kentucky vs. South Carolina b-ball game was priceless!

Mike the bartender is hands down the best "mixologist". I have been coming here for 24 years and it feels like home. The owners Dean and Ginger have seen me transform over the years from a kid, to working as their hostess....graduating college and having children of my own. There is always something different going on...trivia night, music on the... More

I grew up on Nappy's. We just recently had a party there and it was very nice. They offered a "shorter/quick order menu" that was great for our party. We requested a private room which was great. We had 2 serves that were very helpful and on point! they made sure we had enough salad to go around and our... More

I had dinner at Napolatano's last week with a large group. I was pleasantly surprised at the good service considering how large how group was. However, I was disappointed in the food. I ordered eggplant parmesan and I look think I could make it better in my own kitchen.

Nappy's has a strange smell inside telling me that this place is tired and warn out and in need of a real deep restoration. The food is nothing special, just ok. They need to do lots of work to bring new customers in. The whole place is very dated. It is Italian and American menu.

We stayed in Gainesville on our way to visit family near Bradenton. I found this place using a phone app. It is not fancy and does draw families. In fact one table nearby had 2 small boys running laps around the room. Our waiter could sense our concern and told us that the family was leaving. They did and the... More

Been going to Nappys for 20 plus years and never get disappointed. The food is outstanding and our dinner last night was no exception. Calzone was stuffed with toppings, chicken parm cooked just right. One of the best Gainesville has to offer.
