First of all, let me state that I SO wanted to like this place based on other reviews and acquaintance opinions. That being said, I'll cover the highlights before slicing open the wounds. Yes, they know how to make proper double-ought flour crust in a...More

Their Neapolitan style pizza with its special thin crust is delicious. We began with a vegetarian double chopped salad, followed by a Green Margherita (basil) pizza, and finished with a fruit (blueberry) crisp. Everything was top-notch. Neapolitan style pizzas do not have nearly as much...More

With so many chain pizza places, Napolese provides pizza more in the style of that in Italy rather than the original pizza locations of Chicago and New York. The new world restaurant imitating the old world spin on American pizza? Who cares about the logical...More

Yeah, this is one of those kind of "millennial" places that has kale on everything (not really, but it's "that" kind of vibe). That sounds like a put-down but I just mean it's a cool place and everybody who works there is cool. But who...More

A very successful restaurant but TOO LOUD - our group finally surrendered to the noise and ceased all attempts at conversation until after we left - not sure how to address but will not likely return soon - most unfortunate.

This is a favorite restaurant of our family. When our kids come home from out of state, it is the first place they want to visit. The pizza is delicious but don't miss out on the salad (served in a bowl for the table). Nice,...More

Thanks so much for making us your fave! And for the kind words about our pizza, salad and atmosphere. We can't wait to see you again soon.

This is a great spot for lunch. The salads are very good and can be made in half portions during lunch hours (you have to ask though, not lusted on menu). Service is usually friendly but can take a while to get check after meal.

Thank you so much for visiting us for lunch and the great tip about our salads! We apologize for the wait to get your check, we will most definitely address that with our staff so that future visits are flawless. Thanks again for the feedback!
