“High Quality Myanmar Influenced Italian Cuisine”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Generous portions, inexpensive prices, friendly service and good Italian dishes. Some dishes clearly have a bit of an Asian influence to them, but they're still solid choices. Pizza served is medium crust with a hefty dose of very nice cheese. Extensive menu should have something for everyone, particularly good seafood dishes. Only criticism from me is that many dishes could use a heavier hand when it comes to seasoning. Spicy Pork Sausage starter for instance is basically just sausage - no discernable heat.

Ambiance is "cafe casual". Perhaps too basic for a first date, but a definite go-to place when you want a nice, tasty Italian meal without having to pay the posh prices of some of many of the more upscale Italian/continental restaurants around town.

Nine of us gorged ourselves - even left a few dishes partly uneaten, with 2 bottles of wine and a few other drinks for just over 100K Kyat (a bit over USD100), including service.

NOTE - this review if for the "original" Cafe Napoli on Shwegondaing Rd. There is a new restaurant (believe same ownership) of the same/similar name recently opened about a mile away on Inya Myaing Road. Make sure your driver takes you to the right restaurant (though the other one looks quite nice too - topic for future review)!

“The little local Italian”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Great place to get decent italian with good values. I found that the taste of the food is just as good as some fine dining but the price is amazing.

Becoming one of my first option for western food in Yangon.

“Quite good Italian food”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

It just looks like a casual cafe, but the menu is very extensive, and the food is very good. I've only been there once and had some kind of cheesy mushroom hotpot casserole, which was good; I look forward, however, to trying the pasta and pizza next time. There is usually parking available in front of the restaurant.
