Napoli really surprised me with the quality and freshness of the pizza and sandwich ingredients. My wife ordered the small sausage pizza. The crust and sauce were obviously freshly made and were outstanding. I ordered the chicken pesto sub. This seemed to excite our waitress, who professed herself to be a pesto fan, and that she took this job after eating this sandwich here so that she could get more. I am a pesto nut, making my own at home every week, and hate it when restaurants make pesto with a cream base, or fail to put enough garlic or pine nuts that make the sauce basically flavorless. Wow. This sandwich surprised me because I expected the usual packaged shredded mozzarella. Instead, there were several dabs of fresh made mozzarella. The pesto was the real thing: flavorful garlic, olive oil, pine nuts and cheese. The chicken was freshly grilled, not having sat in some bin of salt and oil. We ended up with significant leftovers, and actually ate everything the next day (we often end up with a fridge full of leftovers).
Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Napoli is a real find in small town Maine: a genuinely good pizza and sub shop that uses unusually high quality ingredients. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your review and all the compliments. Yes, we only use fresh topping, sliced meats, roasted our own chicken, and make our own lasagna and meatballs. Other places may cut corners but as you tasted we do not. We are a quality pizzeria and guests that know quality can taste the difference.
