My husband & I wandered in on a week night and ended up having a fabulous meal. Everything was top notch, and our waiter, Christopher, was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. He helped us pick a bottle of wine that went well with our food. We started with pears with cheese, expected a cold dish but... More

Our first time to Naples 15, I was there with my Daughter and Son-in-Law to celebrate her birthday. We were so impressed with everything about this restaurant..........the atmosphere is wonderful (I would highly recommend this as a romantic date location!), our server, Hallah, was very attentive and helpful, the wine list and menu were so authentic. We all enjoyed our... More

My husband and I have just arrived home from one of the best meals we have enjoyed in the Madison area, ever. I had already read excellent reviews in the Madison Magazine about this restaurant many months ago. We live in Janesville, so driving up to Madison is not always so convenient. We met our son and his family (they... More

I have been here twice. Once for a date night with my wife, and then with our daughter and parents. The food is exceptional - simple, fresh ingredients, and extraordinarily delicious . The service is equally exceptional. The chef makes a point to come out and mingle with the guests. The wait-staff is friendly, prompt, and responsive. The atmosphere is... More

Best authentic Neapolitan cuisine in Madison As a culinary graduate and chef who was raised and worked in Italy for many years, I have eaten in many Italian restaurants both in the United States and in Italy. I can honestly say that Naples 15 is among the very best Neapolitan cuisine that I have ever eaten. I have been to... More

I have been eating at Naples 15 from the day it opened its doors. Sal, the chef-owner, has continued to deliver nothing but the best authentic Italian food in Madison. I hope nobody gives any credibility to the review on Tripadvisor titled, "Worst food in Madison". Nothing can be farther from the truth. When Naples 15 has 81% approval rate... More

We went to Naples 15 for a special occasion based on the good reviews on Tripadvisor and other sites. I can only assume that most of these were planted by the restaurant. Almost all the photos are provided "by management," too. The food was the worst we have had in Madison: totally overpriced, tasteless and greasy. Ziti al Re di... More

I lived for some seven years in Italy and consider myself a bit of a connoisseur in Italian food. This was one of the most authentic experiences I've had with Italian restaurants here in the States. Naples 15 was a slice of Italy (Naples!) right here in little Madison. It even compares with the best of Italian restaurants in New... More

I dined at Naples 15 last weekend with my mom and friend. It was fabulous! I rarely order pizza when I go out, but something led me to believe I had to order it here and I am SO glad I did. The arugula and parmesan pizza was honestly one of the best pizzas I've ever had. I shared that... More

For at least the 4th time my coworkers and I did a holiday dinner party at Naples 15. The chef and owner Sal, is always accommodating and makes it a great experience. The food is always excellent and different from the other Italian you will find in Madison-Sal uses traditional family recipes from Italy. The service is excellent as well!... More
