We have been to Via Napoli several times now and it definitely doesn't disappoint if you want a touch of Italy on your doorstep. As other reviewers have said, it's noisy, it's brash, always busy. and the tables are too closely spaced. But the food and the enthusiasm of the staff make up for any shortcomings. Service is almost a little too quick, drinks arrive before you have even finished ordering! We have learnt to order our appetisers first and delay ordering our pizza until a bit later as you risk the pizza arriving before you have finished your appetisers otherwise. The pizzas are divine in both taste and texture, the salads are always fresh and tasty and the tiramisu is creamy and delicious. We will be back

Before I went to Via Napoli, I heard so much good review about it. So yes, I had high expectation.

They are good in a way to have a very marketable pizza with customised length. However, I found the pizza taste the same no matter what topping you chose as it's generally too salty.

The service is very italian! They seem to be very 'enthusiastic' to you but then they managed to push you to order and get you out quickly. I did feel pressured to finish up quickly from twice that I've been there.

This is a slice of Naples in Lane Cove and full of Italians working there, Mamma Mia! Food is rustica, authentic, service can be fun, abrupt, but adds to the spirit of the restaurant. Pizzas are top class however not really good for takeaway as these will steam in the box and be soft & mushy base by the time you get home! So if you do takeaway fire up the oven & leave your pizza stone in there and flash the pizza in the oven for 3-5 minutes
A must visit restaurant for lovers of Italian food!

It's brash, it's loud, it's busy, it's Naples, but the food is superb. Am a bit of a Pizza fanatic and this is one of the best I have tasted and I have travelled a lot. But be warned it is not a place to relax, it's a place to EAT!

This is a great little local pizzeria and is *always* busy. Since extending the al fresco area in 2013 the atmosphere outside is great, even in winter. I have eaten here on three times and on every occasion the place has been buzzing, even mid-week. If you love italian food and a lively atmosphere, this is your place.

Note - this restaurant takes reservations, but only on the day from 10am. Turning up without a reservation can otherwise result in a long wait.
