Actually we ate in the bar area which was perfectly fine. We had left another venue where we had reservations as it was too noisy. Even the bar section here had far better ambiance. We had a lovely large corner table. The menu is the...More

Cafe Napoli's a good venue with a good vibe and plenty of space. The food is pretty decent, and the portions are impressively large. Service was great. Valet parking is available, but there's plenty of street parking as well.

Service, food and decor are always excellent. Pricey but high quality. Cool high tech valet parking to boot on your phone!

Cafe Napoli has a clubby atmosphere that makes the customer feel comfortable and ready for a fine meal. I ordered the Caesar salad and the vodka penne. The salad was the right portion and the dressing covered the greens without drenching them. The sauce for...More

When Tony Pietoso opened the original Cafe Napoli in the '80s, it quickly became a success. So Successful, in fact, that it moved to a bigger location at 7754 Forsyth Blvd. The restaurant continued to flourish with its generous portions of regional Italian specialties. Cafe Napoli has recently undergone a facelift and has added Bar Napoli next door. The swank cocktail lounge has soft lighting and a separate wine room that can accommodate 30 diners. The kitchen is headed by chef Jeff Davis, who has been with the restaurant for several years. Fortunato Pietoso, Tony's brother, has also returned to the kitchen. Tony makes rounds chatting with customers, many of whom appear to be on a first-name basis with him. The sons Ande and Kye split their time between the Bar and Cafe, as they are being groomed to take over the family business. Cafe Napoli is a must visit when in the St. Louis area. Some guests include Tony Bennett, Gloria Estefen, Joe Torre and Arnold Palmer to name a few.
