“Yummy in the tummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

What a wonderful place to spend an evening celebrating our son's 35th birthday! We had never been here before and because it was his selection we honored his request. Although the restaurant isn't spacious, that just added to the ambiance of the room. I felt like I was in a small Italian restaurant thousands of miles away. Family photos, as well as photos of Italy, adorned the walls. The owner of the restaurant came over to our table and greeted all of us with open arms. Right when entering the restaurant you felt that your presence was welcomed and appreciated. When she found out the occasion we were celebrating, out came a delicious Bruschetta appetizer!
All of us were pleased with our meals. The service was excellent. Not only offering to refill our delicious Italian bread basket, but also sending us home with the left-overs! At the end of our meal the staff presented our son with a slice of orange Tirimuso cake + 4 forks and a serenade of "Happy Birthday"!
The restaurant was affordable with a wide range of choices. The parking was sufficient for the size of the restaurant. All in all, a wonderful, memorable evening. We'll be back!

“Best hospitality in the valley.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We love the food and family atmosphere at Villa Napoli. Josephine and Ciro make certain you are comfortable and well taken care of. It's our favorite place to eat.

“Amore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

It took friends from New Zealand to tell us about this lovely Italian treasure in our own backyard. Owners Josephine and Ciro Accardo pour out their hearts into the food that is prepared there and the service that patrons receive. Originally from Napoli, Italy, Ciro and Josephine have recreated the quaintness and loving hospitality of their beautiful village and the cuisine and tucked it into the heart of Turlock. Last night we had a beautiful bottle of 40 year old Taylor Port and our dearest friends with us. We decided that Villa Napoli was the restaurant with the perfect food and ambiance to open up this lovely bottle of port.

If you have something special to celebrate, or you want to experience amore in Italy without having to fly to Europe, stop by Villa Napoli and introduce yourself to Josphine and Ciro. Amore abounds at Villa Napoli.

“OH MY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We were vacationing and decided to spend the night in Turlock, California. TripAdvisor guided us to Villa Napoli Restaurant here.
The previous reviews are incredibly accurate as to the hospitality. It seemed as though everyone knew everyone and all received a welcoming hug and a departing hug as well. It was so warm and wonderful to be part of this great dining experience. We were barely able to get away because as we were leaving, the owner/cook met us and shook our hands and wanted to visit.
The restaurant was very busy and the friendly atmosphere was contagious. We had a delightful young lady wait on us (sorry I did not get her name) she was fantastic and kept checking with us to make sure everything was good. She went out of her way to make sure my wife’s special dietary needs were met. She was a big part of our wonderful visit.
The food was excellent; my wife had a minestrone soup that was cooked in a chicken broth base rather than the traditional tomato base that we are accustomed to. The soup was excellent.
I had an order of sausage lasagna, probably the best lasagna I have ever eaten, and it was simply incredible.
Needless to say, we highly recommend this restaurant and rest assured that if we are ever in this area again we will make a point of stopping here to eat.

“Delicious Food + Gracious Service = Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This little place looks like it has been there forever, but it turns out its only been there 3 1/2 years. Warm gracious service with hugs all around coming and going. Food was outstanding, perfect pasta. We will certainly be back.
