We went here for dinner and returned the next night because the food and service were excellent. I would recommend the Pasta with Shrimp and Scallops in a hearty red sauce. The ambiance of the restaurant is warm and friendly and we appreciated the attentive and enthusiastic service of our waiter Christopher. Save room for a heavenly dessert "Baba" a... More

I've been eating out in Madison for 7 years and enjoyed many a meal, but I can't say that I've really been "wow-ed" by a dining experience. That has changed with our dinner last weekend at Naples 15. This restaurant has been on my "to try" list and now will be on me "let's go again" list! First of all,... More

My husband and I went to Naples 15 specifically to have pizza and we were not disappointed. We both enjoyed it and found it to be reasonably priced. Our waitress Anne was very accommodating and brought us samples of wine by the glass to try. We sat outside on their small patio which is located on a quiet residential neighbourgood... More

From the authentic Neopolitan pizza oven to the wonderful pasta dishes....it was fantastic. I lived in Naples for three years from 1997-2000 and Napoli 15 brought me back home. You must give this restaurant a try.

At Naples 15 the costumers are given the opportunity to fully embrace the warmth and the richness of Neapolitan’s culture to its fullest. First of the Chef (Salvatore) is a passionate Italian man who’s kindness and talent are simply astonishing. Furthermore the waiters and waitresses seemed extremely competent and made sure that my friend and I had an enjoyable dinner.... More

This was our first time to go to this restaurant. I would like to classify this because anyone can have a bad day. When we entered Naples 15, we were struck by the charming interior and the very welcoming attitude of the male host and the man behind the bar. I believe they are Italian, to give the restaurant a...

I visited Italy 2 years ago and going to Naples 15 was like stepping back into an authentic Italian restaurant as far as atmosphere and food. My friend and I each ordered a pizza to share, one fried pizza and the other a smoked mozzarella pizza and they were both perfect. Our server and the chef were both outstanding. The... More

Naples 15 is the real deal when it comes to Italian food. They have a great pizza oven and their pizza is the best in town. Salvatore showed us how he makes the pizza dough with imported Italian flour. The atmosphere is fun and Salvatore and his family are very gracious owners.

This is our first time at Naples 15 and we will be back! The food was outstanding. It was as beautiful as it was delicious. As others have said, some of the entrees are rather pricey, but we found 2 delicious seafood choices in the $20 range. The service was good, friendly but not hovering. Compared to other downtown dining,... More

I find it hard to believe that some of the reviewers went to the same restaurant I did. Our experience was not positive at all. Our server gave us a list of specials without giving prices. When I asked, I learned that the items were $39.95 and $49.95. Most entrees were $30 or more. My husband and I ordered green... More
