Great food, ginormous portions

We ate here based on trip advisor recommendations. Decor is amusing and food is authentic. Servers were super friendly! Portions are huge, however, and I suggest sharing. Also the wine list is below par and could be spiffed up. It's got a casual feel, so I get the sense the wine concept is foreign... read more

We loved the decor and the atmosphere of this place. The food was good. Service was a tad slow, but we were in no rush so didn't mind at all. The staff were super friendly and helpful.

Food is served in generous proportions. Shrimp primavera was tasty, salad was average with uninspired greens. Bar menu lacks any draft beers and wine offering was limited and since we are in California disappointingly mediocre. Checking out is a cattle call where you are herded into a line and you have to tell if you want to tip and the... More

We were passing thru and didn't want to spend to much time at lunch, but wanted more then a fast food restaurant would offer. DiNapoli's fit the bill. My wife and I had 2 different salads and they were both great. So even if you pass on what looked like great Italian food, that salads are very good. If we... More

Delicious. Huge portions of hot authentic food. Restaurant is clean. Staff is friendly. The house moscato is out of this world. Love the firehouse theme. If you're from out of town bring your community firehall badge to add to the wall. Stromboli is the size of a small turkey and the veal parmesan is fantastic. Tell them you're staying at... More

After a day on the road we needed some really good food. The motel desk recommended this restaurant. The food was good and the service was excellent.

Dropped by for lunch, not my first visit. We choose DiNapoli's because it’s usually very good. Great Italian food. Today I made the mistake of ordering a pastrami sandwich. It wasn’t bad, but not what I was expecting. First off, pastrami sandwich is all about the pastrami. The meat on the sandwich wasn’t bad, it was cut thin, which is... More

I was pleasantly surprised to dine in this restaurant which effectively fused a firehouse-inspired décor with a broad array of tasty, well-prepared traditional Italian dishes. I ordered the Seafood Pasta offering, and thoroughly enjoyed the manner in which its generous amounts of seafood were served over a bed of fettuccini and blended with a delicious, slightly spicy red sauce.
