“Really good pizza”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

OK. I've eaten pizza in NYC, Atlantic City NJ, Rome, Venice and Naples Italy. Any restaurant can get the right ingredients and put the right recipes together properly. What cannot be controlled is the atmosphere. This is where the crust issue comes in. Atlantic City is often said to be one of the best places on the planet to bake pizza crust. I cannot disagree. Even Italy does not do it better. Naples FL does not have the same humidity, water or barometric pressure that the Jersey Coast or NYC has. Give L'Appetito a break. They work with what they got and do it very well. The sauce and toppings are very fresh, of good quality and well prepared. The mozzarella cheese stretched for over a foot when taking a slice from the pan. I Liked the way they sautéed the onions and mushrooms a bit before baking the pizza. You can't beat Northeastern Coastal pizza, but I for one won't fight the traffic to get it.

“Great Pizza in Florida”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

If you want NY or NJ pizza then you head north - the water and climate will never allow for that same same taste, flavor etc.

Being originally from NY and having lived in FLA for so many years - this a great tasting Florida pizza. The waitresses are sweet and child tollerant / friendly (not common in several local places).

We've ordered several different items ranging from pizza pasta to subs and always good flavor. The prices are very reasonable. If you are looking to have a nice family / friends dinner this is the place to go. You will be pleasently surprised.

“A decent sub”
Reviewed 24 July 2013 via mobile

We ordered two meatball subs and a dozen garlic knots for the four of us. There were four meatballs and cheese in each sub. A typical sub, average, not great, great not bad. The knots were flavorful with minced garlic and a healthy dose of olive oil. A side of Marinara sauce was provided. You can't go wrong eating here.

“I don't understand”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

I don't understand the rave reviews for the pizza at L'Appetito. Apparently these reviewers haven't ever had a GOOD pizza in their life. Being from the Jersey shore and having lived in NY, this pizza can't compare to what I'm used to. Taste was lacking in their crust, which by the way, at the edges wasn't bubbly or crunchy. Not enough cheese and the sausage was minimal. For those of you who want a good pizza in the Naples area, go to Joey D's or Marsala's. I did get dessert and will say that the tiramisu was very good. Go for dessert but run away from this place if you're looking for an authentic NY pizza.

“Best Restaurant in Naples”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

This is the BEST pizza I've ever had. The service is absolutely amazing, they're friendly, and you can get awesome food fast. The garlic knots taste fantastic, and so do the wings. When the owner is there, it's like food heaven on Earth. Everyone should come to this fantastic place, the BEST hidden restaurant in Naples.
