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.

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

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
