Have been going for years. True creature of habit to the tort salad or sausage and peppers BUT really love prime rib night. Special to my heart since my baby shower and then my son's high school graduation luncheon held here.....perfect as always!

This restaurant, tucked away but in close proximity to a I-75 interchange, it's a local favorite enjoyed by all ages. Generous serving of Italian dishes as well as fresh seafood and general fare like burgers and variety of salads. The lasagna is not to be missed. Honestly some of the best we've ever had. Although the endless salad and garlic... More

I have eaten here twice and I have loved it both times. The food was exactly the way that I would expect. The second time I went the service wasn't the best which I suspect is because we had a group of ten.

Napolatano's is the place to go if you want a wonderful dinner at a reasonable price, in a friendly atmosphere. The servers and hostess are nice and friendly. The restaurant is big, but divided in a way that gives you a cozy atmosphere. You need to try the manager's specials, they are really worth it. My favorite is the scallops... More

When you want great or even good italian food, I would not recommend this restaurant. The food is average, the service is good. Its like a fast food italian restaurant, but its not.

We are so sorry that you did not like the Sausage and Peppers, this item is usually a very popular entrée for people who want no red sauce, but can be made for you with red sauce, if you want.

Bartender was nice. Locals were OK. Food was good but not mind blowing. For the price you get a good amount of food - you will have leftovers. Drinks were also reasonably priced.

Initially, we just were going to snack and ordered the unbreaded chicken wings and the almond crusted mahi salad. Good fresh well prepared ingredients.
