Napoleone’s is a traditional and longtime pizza parlor in downtown National City. Service is the best on the South Bay pizza scene—everyone is well trained and friendly. It is also one of the cleanest (front & back of the house) eating establishments you could wish...for.
I have only ordered pizza; both to-go and dine in, so sorry for my narrow focus. This is a traditional medium thick crust with generous cheese-on-top (over most toppings) pizza.
Each component is high quality. The crust is pleasing when fresh, and much more rare, is enjoyable even when reheated in the microwave (yes I know better). The sauce is full bodied and rich. And, as noted, the cheese is generous and excellent. Both the pepperoni and sausage were high quality, but the amount is just slightly less than expected. Still, very satisfying and hard to leave in the refrigerator. I find myself standing at the refrigerator door, contemplating another slice.
A final positive attribute, it is just around the corner from Niederfrank’s ice cream! Pizza with a super premium ice cream chaser is an unbeatable combination.More
