My wife and I frequent Cafe Napoli on occasion and since we were in the area, we stopped in for a quick bite. We both ordered their white pizza. The crust was crisp and tasty and the toppings were just right. needless to say, we will return.

Cafe Napoli has been one of my favorite Italian restaurant since it opened up over 30 years ago. I rave about every dish they serve. Their only staple I do not like is their red sauce. The sauce has a tin taste to it. For that reason i give Cafe Napoli 4 stars instead of the 5 stars they deserve... More

2 couples visited last night. The 2 ladies had Gluten free cheese ravioli, which were excellent. Side salad ordered was a meal in itself. I had filled pizza slice, which was very good, and a huge Antipasto salad, which 1/2 went home. Baked Ziti with sausage and meatballs was a big hit with my brother in law. Definitely a return...

Went to Café Napoli last night with friends as it is one of their favorite places. We went with them once before and were not anxious to go back so we were pleasantly surprised with our meals. Not only were the dishes excellent but I had leftovers for lunch today and I will finish them for lunch tomorrow. The Arribattico.... More

As always, the portions in this place are LARGE. We always go there with the expectation that we will have lunch and do or at least a Nother meat out of the leftovers. Although they have a great salad and pizza by the slice, we always go there for the genuine Italian cuisine!

I did not realize how long it had been since we last went to Cafe Napoli until I saw my review here from 2011. Nothing has changed since our last visit, great food, enormous portions, great prices. I recently had dinner at an Italian restaurant in Dover, dinner for two was almost as much as I paid here for dinner... More

Went to Cafe Napoli on Kirkwood Hwy with my wife and son. Tucked away in a shopping center, it looks like a very small and unassuming on the outside. Don't let this influence you. Inside it's huge, with large dining areas to the left and behind the main entrance area where the cooking is done. We sat in this front... More

i come from a Southern Italian family (Naples). To me, Cafe Napoli is the closest to my family's authentic Italian food. Have never ordered or tasted anything there that I did not like. White pizza, linguini w clams, calamari and antipasti salad are the best!

We go here at least once a year with a social group of ours. They have a nice side room for parties, which accommodates our group rather well. It is a little out of the way for us for us to visit on a regular basis, but the food is worth the drive every now and then. The portion sizes... More
