“Great pizza in Naperville”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

There's now two wood oven pizza places, and this one takes the prize. The other one is simply Neo's ugly step-sister. Great pizza, and the other dishes were very good. Wine selection is top notch, and the atmosphere mirrors some great places in Chicago. Worth a trip. I would highly recommend the food here.

“Good food/wine, lounge-like ambiance”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

The atmosphere at Neo is dimly lit, and looks like a lounge you might find in a River North (Chicago) restaurant/lounge/bar. If you like that style, you will love Neo. The food and drink is pretty reasonably priced, as two people can easily split a pizza. We bought a bottle of wine to share, which was their cheapest selection, though it was very good. Great wine prices. I wasn't overly wild about some selections we made on our charcuterie platter, but that just means we will have to go back and try some more. We were there on a Saturday night until about 10:30, and there was not very many people in there, and there was surely not a lot of bar action going on. So if you are looking for the Naperville bar scene, you probably won't find it inside Neo. The service is good, not outstanding, but surely acceptable. I will go back to Neo when I get a chance.

“Reminded us of Chicago dining”
Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

Went with another couple on a Sunday night. Atmosphere reminded me of eating in Chicago, small dining room with a high ceiling and dark lighting. The pizza guys were fun to watch as they flipped the dough in the air. Another table had several kids that were also enjoying the informal entertainment. The mozzarella appetizer was amazing! We would go back just for that and the good pizza was just a bonus. Parking was annoying and we ended up parking in the top lot instead of the ground floor but worth the trip. We will go back when in the mood for expensive pizza.

“Pizzaria Neo - next to Barnes & Noble”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

The Pizzeria Neo in downtown Naperville is a touch of "city club" in the burbs. I'll admit they play a bit too much of "lounge music" in the background, but the food is excellent and the staff is very friendly. We've been there a few times, mostly for dinner or tapas-style eating at the bar.....actually, there are two bar/eating stations...One is out front inthe lounge, the other faces the main kitchen.

Make sure you check out their individual styles of meats and cheeses. You order those ala carte. When Neo first opened, the staff helped us select some very good cheeses that way. The restaurant guests cover families, couples, and a bit of the martini crowd.....

They do have a small outdoor patio, but it looks out onto Chicago Ave, so nothing exciting there.

“A fun, upscale pizza place”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We did not eat at Neo, we came for drinks. But we will definitely come back for dinner. The bar scene was a lot of fun. The bartenders are very friendly and accommodating. Kristina was our bartender. She made the experience a great one. The wine was very good, and not expensive, like some bars. We will definitely return.
