“Excellent”

My mom and I went to Napolatanos for dinner, and I must say the food is delicious. We ordered steak and fetuccini pasta as well as the kabab shrimp appetizer. The service is always top notch; we are definitely comong back!

“Catering was awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

We ordered napolatanos catering for a teacher appreciation luncheon for 70-80.people. Ginger helped me decide what to get and how much would work for our budget and tastes! Everyone loved the choices! From vegetarians to meat lovers and everyone in between, there was something for everyone. We would definitely choose napolatanos again!! thanks

“a "goto" restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Napolatano's-a GOTO Italian restaurant very suitable for family dinners and 'date night' outings. They can also accommodate groups in a private setting, either indoors or outdoors. Selected evenings feature bands under the tent on the rear patio. The menu morphs from modern-day "small plates" to HUGE servings of Southern Italian fare. I found the red sauces to be almost exactly the same as my Long Island, NY experiences. This is good, decent belly filling Italian food! All dinners are served with a large, family style salad and some pretty darned good garlic bread. The entrees are LARGE. Most folks will likely wish to take some home. Just recently I enjoyed an entrée of sausage and peppers with a side of pasta. While I ate all of the pasta, the serving of sausage and peppers gave me 2 additional meals at home. A week ago we hosted a party of 41 people at Napolatano's. While the room we chose proved to be a bit small, it was large enough for everyone to sit and enjoy their meals, dance to the music that we provided (2 piece band) and mingle. The staff was wonderful! Had you made out a schedule as to when drinks, salads, entrees and sides were delivered and bussed, the folks who served us would have kept to that schedule and then-some. Prices are reasonable, people are great, parking is abundant.

“Great location for a private gathering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

We planned a private gathering for about 20 people using one of their private party rooms. Working with Ginger, the owner of Napolitano's was a pleasure as she gave us all of the options that would suit our group, menus, appetizers, etc. We also had the added feature of a large screen TV in the room to entertain us with another UF Gator Basketball victory as part of the March Madness bracket playoffs. The whole atmosphere was great, our attendees were well catered according to our plan and all were happy with the outcome. Highly recommended for anyone planning a similar function.
