Had a lovely dinner at Cafe Napoli. Shared the beef carpaccio. Paper thin and velvety. Also shared an arugula salad. Nice. The restaurant has really lightened up their offerings. In the past, salads have been overdressed. This was perfectly dressed. I had sea scallops with...More

The only way you know this place is supposed to be nice is because it is priced that way. This is not the restaurant it was 20 years ago that delivered excellence all of the time. The servers act like it is your privilege to...More

This place tries to be a high end business dinner place but food is average. The sea food platter was kind of small and most of the oysters had broken shells. The deep fried ravioli were dry and uninspired. The seafood pasta had two over...More

Try caprese salad with giant slices on fresh mozzarella cheese on tomatoes and nice basil pesto dressing. The ravioli was excellent and the prawn appetizers looked very big. I enjoyed the flourless chocolate cake. This was an event which was held in a private room....More

Quite friendly restaurant with great food and excellent service! The Saltimbocca is really good! A must restaurant to visit when in Saint Louis!

I've tried Cafe Napoli a couple of times and thought the food is average on both trips. The service is great, though - very attentive and knowledgeable.

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.
