Took us right back to Napoli

We went to Naples 15 for our anniversary. For 3 years we have been looking for a place that could live up to our expectations after living in Naples Italy for 3 years while in the military. We have been to "authentic" Italian restraunts in Seattle and Chicago which were good, but nothing hit the... read more

Naples 15 embodies the true character of the Neapolitan culture. The food is amazing - fresh ingredients prepared in the traditional style and presents with the utmost warmth and hospitality. It's as if you walked into a trattoria anywhere in the Campania region. We will be returning for more! Salvatore and his staff were delightful & inviting to say the... More

On Valentines Day my husband and I went to Naples 15 to try its special holiday set menu. Despite the fact that the place was quite full and lively we were given a pleasantly situated table. The six-course menu was elegant; the dishes delightful individually and in their development: we started a small sample of its authentic pizza: followed by... More

By far one of the most fun dining experiences! We were seated and shortly after the Chef came over to our table of 8 and shared his excitement for his menu, bringing out fresh fish and explaining the specials as well as some of his favorites dishes! We enjoyed his flare and passion for his restaurant- Nice personal touch! This... More

The most recent review of Naples 15, entitled "miss representation," (either because of bad spelling or a lame sense of humor), alleged that a dish advertised as Sea Bass was actually Tilapia, a much cheaper fish and therefore was overpriced. The writer says he can tell Sea Bass because he has " had his share of Sea Bass and knows... More

Naples 15 does not buy tilapia. They are supplied Mediterranean Sea Bass 400-600 gram scaled and dressed. The fish will yeild a 4-5 oz fillet. Sal buys only fresh seafood ingredients.

I normally do not do reviews but had to on my experience. First the positive, our table of 4 had a great server in Christopher. He did a greater job. Three of the meals were awesome with the Ziti going over the top. The big let down came with one of the specials, advertised as Sea Bass over pasta for... More

My wife and I walked up the hill from our abode tonight to enjoy some wine and pizza at this extraordinary restaurant, only to find out that there was a private party/wine/food/tasting event happening this particular evening. Salvatore Di Scala, Owner & Executive Chef, was whipping up a seven-course wine-pairing meal for some of the country's biggest foodies (including the... More

We tried both the entrees featuring the authentic sauces from the 16th and 18th century (don't ask me what they were called). Those two were a bit more expensive...but worth the price of admission. If you're looking for an authentic experience, good food that's a bit more interesting than what you'd find at Olive Garden...give this one a shot.
