Dining options: Late Night, Reservations
Description: Once you come in to this traditional trattoria style bungalow, you will be absorbed by the smell of corkwood. The decoration is simple but pleasant, giving out a feeling of the Mediterranean. Just like the decoration, the dishes are mostly prepared in traditional and authentic Italian home cooking style with a strong Napolitano influence. The pleasantry of dining would start right from the aperitifs. Not only Campari and sparkling wines, but also some different kinds of spritz are on its menu. Though there are not too many soup options on the menu, the myriad of antipasti are more than just brilliant. A featured specialty of the appetizer is the Antipasto Misto, a plateful of prosciutto di Parma, salami, and some other Italian cold cuts. Besides these more traditional Italian treats, there also some maritime entries such as caviar, fresh huitres (imported oysters) , salmon slices and tuna , some of which are added onto the menu by the requests of local Chinese customers. Most liked by its customers are the pasta entries, all made with semolina flour and extra virgin olive oil; however, the chef himself would prefer the Angus beef (all imported from Australia). Stefano, who has worked in the food service industry for 27 years, recently added grill to its offerings. Unlike many other classy Italian restaurants, Napoli serves big and crunchy broiled steaks ( Fiorentina 800 grams ) that carry with them a very authentic Italian taste. As suggested by Stefano, the restaurant’s featured wine Aglianico would go best with the steaks, as it’s made with grapes grown in the lava-drenched soil near the formidable Volcano of Vesuvius. Also worth a bite is the Italian style pizzas rich in mozzarella, the seafood risotto and last but not least the special tiramisu. If you do want to make a return to Sorrento, Napoli Wine Bar and Restaurant will definitely be the best choice. Come for a sip of fine wine and indulge yourself in the Italian hospitality and all that Stefano and his staff have to offer. And please make sure you have planned a visit to the new branch of Napoli to be opened in April.

Food was ok but not amzing and quite expensive.
No atmosphere, the service is good as there is one lady staff speaking English, but if you ask something to others they don't understand.

I was surprised by the staff attitude. The boss and his son just took a table before the end of the service and ate in front of everybody.

I visited this restaurant after a long work day on a Friday and it was a magical place to unwind. The owner and chef were wonderful people and the wait staff took care of us very well. The food was fantastic. We had a very large and very long meal and I enjoyed the wide variety we were able to sample from.

I high recommend checking this place out. It's worth a look if you are living or visiting Qingdao.

I live in Beijing but I'm in Qingdao for one week with a colleague of mine.
Really I was not thinking to find in Qingdao such a good Italian restaurant.
Very good choice of dishes and large selection of wines, more than 50 very selected Italian wines.
We ate three wonderful kinds of pasta and a big T-bone with grilled vegetables and we drank a great Chianti Riserva.
Also good service and friendly and professional staff.
Maybe some touching up to the look would be useful , but the manager told me that it will be done soon.
Anyhow our final opinion is very good.
See you soon !!!

Food was great and a lot of it, went for the set menu and was not disappointed

Beers were expensive and though we were tucked away around a corner it was still very cold in the restaurant.

Good attentive service and free sambuca at the end of the meal.
