The title says it all. I grew up in Gainesville and live in Tampa but this is by far the best pizza place I have ever been to anywhere. I've had a few of their other dishes but the pizza is the best, steak is really good. Nappy's is the first place that I have to eat when I come home.

We held a surprise birthday dinner at Napolatono's. The staff helped us pull off the surprise. We ended up having more in our group than we anticipated. They went out of their way to accommodate us. The staff was helpful and helped to make the celebration special. The service was excellent, especially for our large group. The food was plentiful and delicious. I really appreciate them allowing us to use one of their party rooms. Everyone had a great time and those who ate there for the first time said that they would definitely return. I highly recommend Napolatano's. It was the perfect party atmosphere. Many thanks to Ginger and her staff!!!

I was staying at a nearby hotel with my mother and she wanted to have steak for dinner and was told by the front desk person at the hotel that this place did have steak....okay...not what I would have ordered but since that is what the lady wanted that is what the lady would have. I walked over to the place to order takeout. I loved the feel of the place. The food looked wonderful that I saw coming by. It smelled great and the staff up front taking orders and dealing with people coming in for take out were superb. They had a lot of patience with me since they knew I was having a tough time ordering a steak. My Mom really enjoyed the steak...it was okay...the salad was okay and the garlic bread was very good. There was tons of food. I would have loved to have had some real Italian food. They had a big selection of foods on the menu. It was very busy and it was only a Tuesday but the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. There is also two dining areas inside...one that is bar like with TV's and the other more romantic and quiet.
