Based on the reviews here decided to give this place a try on our recent trip to Naples. As we walked in we were greeted by a warm waiter who sat us immediately. Decor is not spectacular but cute and cozy. Our order was taken quickly and we were drinking and eating within minutes. Waiter offered us some excellent wine pairings with our meal. We began with some bruschetta which was absolutely delicious and very fresh. The flat bread brough to our table was a bit stale but paired very well with the olive oil and balsamic. I had an excellent pasta with clam sauce, light and full of flavor. Pasta itself was fresh and al dente. Wife ordered lobster ravioli with a cream sauce that was also excellent. We both finished our meals with an espresso which was delicious. We got there a bit early (about 5pm or so) but noticed that the place was quite full shortly before we left with almost no seating (7pm or so). There is no hostess so it was kind of a free for all in terms of who got the next table. Additionally, the placed did seem a bit unorganized with their service. The manager was there doing his best to keep things organized. Not make or break issues but would probably be an issue during busy Friday or Saturday nights.

Napolis was great. This may be better.
If you've been to NYC or North Boston, and had a slice you HAD to fold, with a great crust and enough cheese, without too much seasoning, you probably loved it. Napoli's is close to this. This is a great NYC pizza, served by the slice, that will fill you up, but you'll just want one more. The best pizza I've ever had south of Philly or NYC. May be better than many of those. Do NOT include the awful, Papa John variations from the Times Square area.

From the exterior you might miss or avoid it but thanks to Trip advisor and the reviews from customers we found it and gave it a go! The interior is not over the top indeed functional but hey, where they score is the quality of service, the friendliness and genuinely welcoming service, and above all the quality of the fresh food. We followed the special starter of Burrata one portion more than enough for two - an excellent plate of beautiful Palma ham, tomatoes, soft peppers, avocado and mozzarella cheese on a crisp burette served with slices of garlic bread - delicious. linguine with fresh clams fantastic and Penne alla leo - we'll cooked totally fresh and was the waiter's recommendation - excellent. One pistachio ice - excellent. Great value at $104 for two plus tip. Wine accounted for $42 - as with most US restaurants wine mark up is excessive but hey on holiday in Naples, Florida - what do you expect in the land of the clearly well to do? Strongly recommend.

We just visited Naples, we read Tripadvisor for a restaurant and hotel selection in the area. We went to Cosmos because of the good Tripadvisor rating. We had a great meal, the pizza is excellent the ambiance...very noisy like any busy Italian restaurant in Italy. The owner is a great host, thanks to Gianluca to do his best to please everyone!

This hidden little gem was a fantastic find!!! Wanting a relaxing night out without paying big Naples dollars for great food I was skeptical at finding anything. Because of Trip Advisor we landed at this place and were blown away by the quality, authenticity and value of the food. I shall be recommending and returning ASAP!!
