The menu of this restaurant is pretty big, from Pasta to Seafood. I`ve ordered a Pasta, Carbonara and they served wit a lot of cream, the Pasta overcooked. This restaurant use to be one of the first restaurant of Panama City, 30 years ago, and nice for Family meetings, but the food quality its pretty bad. Its good to take... More

This has always had a truly familiar Italian Panamanian flavor. The place is nice, warm and inviting. Has great service. We had the always delicious clams in garlic with warm pita bread. My cartucho with shrimp olive oil and garlic was fantastic and just delicious!! Comfort food, spaghetti a la bolognese. The fettuccini in cream sauce with seafood was perfect,... More

Amazing that after all these years, every time I go there, it always takes me back to my childhood. This restaurant is like a staple, I believe this one was the first place I tried pasta and pizza while growing up. This place has grown, just like I did too, throughout the years, I've seen so many changes going over... More

First time i wrote about Napoli was in december but i have been here quite some times and i have one conclusion... Napoli is one of my favourite restaurants in Panama. The napoli pizza is the best, have this with a Lemon pie dessert and you have the best combination. Such a winner!

well not what a real italian expect, old fashion sauces, all same tomato base, lousy presentation, grand pa restaurant of the late 50 in Italy. real this is considered a great italian but o boy o boy. is a plain disaster. the service only is ok, but all paper towels etc etc not even worth spending time to discuss.

Pizzeria Napoli was a nice find. We were finally able to enjoy some good pizza in Panama. Ask around and many will confirm a positive experience. Service was a little slow, but the servers were knowledgeable and pleasant. The place was packed and had a steady stream in; surely a good sign of good food. Definitely worth the trip.

We used to go to the original Napoli restaurant off of 4th of July Avenue in the 60's when I was a kid living in the Canal Zone. We went back for vacation and found the new location, about 2 miles from our hotel, and was thrilled to discover that the pizza is EXACTLY the same (delicious/chewy/not too thick or... More

Great tasting pizza. Place is busy, but the staff is able to accommodate well. Delicious. They also have different pasta options that are very good as well.

Really good pizza and cold beer. Whenever I return to Panama, I stop here for lunch. Pizza is good and hot. Served quickly (At least at lunch). Not in the best part of town, but don't let tat stop you, especially in the daylight.

This restaurant is most definitely not located in the most desirable neighborhood in Panama City. However the quality of the food and the prices are outstanding. I have been a customer for over 50 years! My father first brought me here for my birthday meal shortly after Napoli and Enrico opened the restaurant. Since Enrico's passing, his daughter and his...
