“Cheap and Poor Quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

Went yesterday and had the seafood Risotto which was dry and the Calamari was Rubbery.

It is reasonably priced and the service was quick but the quality was not good. Disappointed

“You get what you pay for...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

I stayed in Edinburgh for many years & remember when the Italian restaurants 'going down to Queen Street' from Princes Street offeredgraet value for money. Small intimate friendly, with good food at good prices. I have been away a few years & tried Napoli..
A mistake, cheap set lunch menu - yes- but poor service, the plates plonked down on the table with no communication from the waiters. Dessert was supposed to be apple crumble- the waiter brought ice cream with a red sauce- 'We asked for apple crumble..' 'None left you can have this ice cream' & the waiter left. I'm not going back.

“Terrible experience.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

Terrible service. I had to wait a long time for my drink, which didn't come with the glass I had asked for, then had to wait even longer for the glass - about half an hour in total.

The waiters came across as snobbish and disinterested.

Below average food - I ordered a chicken pasta dish and it contained what looked like pre-diced frozen chicken. Two members of my party had steak and we're also dissappointed.

“Italian meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

We were recommended this restaurant by a local but it did not quite live up to expectations. It was cramped and noisy. The food was average and the service haphazard. We didn't quite get what we ordered!
