Congratulations to Salvatore and his team at Naples 15 I totally agree with the choice to be the first restaurant in Madison and the best Neapolitan restaurant of the Monzu which is the oldest school of the the finest Neopolitan cuisine! From the imported pasta...Gerardo di Nola to the wonderful Florentine steak and the fresh wonderful seafood, and the exceptional selection of wines. They have the greatest olive oil called Oilivis. Do not forget this is the only certified pizzeria with Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana which means it’s the only certified Neapolitan pizzeria. And also they have a true Neapolitan expresso call Siag Caffé USA which you can only find at Naples, Italy. Save the trip to Italy, you can find this in Madison, WI!!More

Everything from the service (Grayson) to the wine, food and coffee was excellent! We started with the cheesy potatoes appetizer (that’s not the nane of the dish, it’s actually a French name) and they were awesome. The calamari - OMG - it’s not what you...get everywhere else, they are not breaded - more sautéed/smoked with a slight kick, were excellent. Next course was sea bass with noodles, mussels, clams, garlic and peppers. Outstanding! Then came the wild boar with ziti meatball and it was amazing! Topping it off was an espresso with cream and cocoa. Th entire meal was amazing! Not just one of Madison’s best, but one of THE best Italian restaurants I’ve been to period which includes NYC, Vegas and Rome! I’ll definitely be back!More

Drinks were fresh, creative, and delicious. The appetizer we had was Burrata Cheese with sauce and bread=delicious. They have a very nice menu to suit many eating palates, from seafood, to pasta, to pizza, to vegetarian delicious dishes. Desserts and espresso are divine. I LOVED...the ambience, the food, the music, the professionalism of the staff. We will be back!More

Certainly many positives, and I understand why there is so much excitement about the place, but our experience was a bit disappointing. Pasta and sauces were excellent- but for the prices, which I don't mind paying, I would expect more than 1 medium scallop, 2...small shrimp and a few tiny clams in a $45 seafood pasta dish- and refills on water without asking numerous times (never did come), and perhaps some bread Also, the ambiance is in many ways warm, friendly and inviting, but the tables are so crammed together it is hard to pull out your chair with other diners on top of you- and not everyone understands how to share the extremely tight space Might give it another chance as a coupleMore

Thank you Sal and the rest of the Naples 15 crew for making our New Year's Eve such a memorable one. The service was impeccable the wait staff was very friendly and accommodating throughout the evening. Hands down this was the best Italian cuisine that...I've ever had. The pizza is absolutely amazing (that was our appetizer)! For our entrees, my husband ordered the sea bass with lobster ravioli and I had the lasagna. You really can't go wrong with anything that you order from here. We will definitely be back and will continue to encourage our colleagues , friends and family to swing by.More

As a seasoned traveler and foodie, I have had many different types of neapolitan cuisine all over the world. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Naples 15, run by the very talented Sal, is hands down the best I have ever...had. The atmosphere, clientele, friendly staff, and incredible service makes every visit memorable and unforgettable. If you ever find yourself in Madison, do yourself a favor and stop in. Fun fact: this is Tony Bennett's favorite restaurant. Trust me, I checked on google.More

Stumbled across his place on a random night out and ended up being absolutely delighted with what we found…… Naples 15 has the best Italian food that you could ever ask for authentic fresh, an absolute top-notch quality cuisine. The food was flavorful cooked to...perfection, and couldn’t ask for more amazing selection of wine and reasonable prices for the quality of cuisine that you would expect from a five star restaurants. The best Ragu genovese w candler pasta. In one phrase life life changing.More

This spot was definitely one of the best Italian meals we have had in the last ten years. First off the ambiance is relaxed yet classy, making for a terrific atmosphere. The food is authentic, you can tell it’s delicious food made from quality real...ingredients and not overdone with breading and cheese. Very attentive service from our waiter Roman, who made us feel at home despite it being our first time here. Very highly recommended especially for their Neapolitan specialties like Parmesan Fritta and Neapolitan style pizza. Their home espresso was a perfect way to end the night.More
