“Lunch Surprise, Surprise”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Located on the top of a hill just off of US Hwy 231 in Wetumpka, Alabama, Casa Napoli is a true surprise. I would rate their Italian fair as mediocre prepared by a co-owner that I understand cut most of his teeth at the Olive Garden. Many locals I spoke with in the community seem to have the same view of the Italian entrees. However, Casa Napoli's lunch is the real surprise here. Specializing in "meat and 2 / 3 / 4". For those of you reading this not accustomed to a "Meat and 2". It's simply the diner's choice of meat (chicken/pork/fish/beef) paired with the choice of "2" sides. I believe all lunches feature grouper Forest Gump style, "blackened, panko, etc...". It's a large piece of fish cooked right. Other lunch options regularly include sandwiches or a chicken breast or such with fresh vegetables and cornbread. Drinks are additional but water and iced tea are included with the meal. Meals are only $7.50 including the drink. Lunch is well worth over $10 by today's standards. I'm concerned they won't be open much longer at current rates. There is plenty of seating with booths and tables. Decor is borderline tacky with fake plastic plants and a phony fireplace (Did I mention Olive Garden?) but you can tell they try hard. The atmosphere lately has been akin to an assisted living facility with few patrons under the age of 65. Definitely, go for their lunch and stay home for dinner.

“not so special”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

I have actually tired several times to like this place and could never make it work. It was always a hit or miss situation especially with the service. The food is only average at best. I would only return if there was someone that insisted that I go with him/her.

“Just ok was better at old location”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 via mobile

Used to bring friends and coworkers to old location on the hill. This one lacks the atmosphere and quality of food. Do not make a trip to visit, it just misses the mark. The service staff has even lost it.

“New location, good food!”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

This place has been hit or miss in the past, this was my first visit in it's new location. The interior is much nicer than the old location. I would prefer a few more options on the menu. They finally have a kids menu which is great. Food was well prepared and tasted great. Portions were large and worth the price. Service was good, although they still lack in their wine service. Never have seen a "rabbit" brought to the table to open the wine...at least they didn't break the cork into the bottle like they did on my last visit.. Will definitely be back!
