This is a classic Italian restaurant, in the heart of the popular Bearden District of Knoxville, that has been around since 1936. I first went there ( when known as Alberti's) in 1966 on a date as a high school junior at nearby West High School and have returned over and over again for more than 50 years. This is... More

Watery Salad dressing ! Wife's scallops entre was 5 scallops about size of a Quarter but described on menu as jumbo My "Cubin" lime porkchop was burned to a crisp & instead of the cheap knife provided a hacksaw would have been better Since we went with friends who consider the restaurant as great we did not say anything to...

We were seated at the exact time of our reservation on a busy Friday night. Service was top notch. The meal was amazing and very reasonably priced for such huge portions. Will make this a regular stop for family events.

Naples has been serving great Italian food at this same Bearden area for many years. Red and white checkered table cloths and all your favorites. Always very clean, prompt and pleasant service and ample portions at a reasonable price.

I admit, I'm spoiled when it comes to Italian fare. I've experienced my friends and family's first-generation Italian grandmother's cooking and baking. In the mid-Atlantic region I have enjoyed many Italian-American meals at restaurants and in private homes. I was excited to eat at Naples, hoping that it would be "real" Italian food. The names were right, the atmosphere was... More

Bustling and classic little Italian joint. Great service from Rory , as well as the rest of the staff and food was really good. I had the special frutti di mare and it was very nice. Definitely recommend stopping in.

The Veal Piccata sauce was as dark as a brown gravy and very over powering. No lemon taste at all. The Sea Bass was not eatable. The Snap Peas were as mushy as mashed potatoes. We asked our server not to contact management due to the quality of the meal was so bad that even if they comped our meal... More

Recently ate at Naples Italian Restaurant and was impressed, just as I have been for years and years. Our meal started with a shared Tuscan Wedge Salad and it was delicious. My entree was the baked Cannelloni, which was so satisfying. I could eat it every other day! My wife's Scampi Amaretto was awesome, too. As always, one of the... More

Recently ate here with family, and it couldn't be more "comfort food" oriented, along with a warm "comfort atmosphere," too. The wait staff were friendly and accommodating, the menu is good, pricing is fair, and the food is excellent. They also have a couple of "private booths" with doors or curtains if you want to do a more romantic, special... More

My wife and I enjoyed the atmosphere at this family owned restaurant. The food was delicious, although I should have known better to order "Maryland Crabcakes" in Knoxville. Other than that, no regrets!
