“Very pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

My father-in-law's birthday, and he chose the venue. While Italian isn't usually our first choice for fine dining, we had a wonderful meal and found the staff to be warm, inviting and personable. Everything we ordered was wonderful, plated beautifully and arrived piping hot from the kitchen. Even on a Sunday night, they attracted a nearly-full house...so I think the word is out that they're doing things right here. Now that we've been once, we all saw items we would gladly return to try on our next visit.

“Surprise, good food, service and close to home”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

We visited Napoli 2 to celebrate my wife's birthday. We had not been here but had talked about it often as it is near our home. I had a chopped ceasar and my wife had a tomato and eggplant salad. The veal dishes that we had were simple and excellent. We ordered a nice half bottle of wine to have with our meal and it was the perfect amount considering we had to drive home. To my wife's delight, they brought a small desert with a candle. It top off a terrific evening. We will certainly be back, soon and often.

For others considering visiting , they have an extensive menu but also had 5 specials the evening we visited all of which looked tempting. We order off the regular menu.

“Gourmet Italian Food, Great Wines and Exceptional Ambience and Service”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

An exceptionally good restaurant ... every time you go there it just keeps getting better! Been there many, many times. http://napoli2.com/index.php

Gourmet Italian food. They are able to adapt almost any item on the menu to your preferences - less or more spicy, vegetarian, vegan, substitute the pasta or the sauce, whatever! They make their own fresh pastas every day. Whether it is a Gnocchi with pesto or Farfalle Arrabiatta, Arancini or Risotto, Chefs John and Nick are just exceptional with any food item they prepare. One of our all-time favorites is their Stack Salad - no one makes it better!

The ambience is stylish, warm, and tasteful. Light colors in the central island keep changing creating a beautiful visual effect. The bar is just a very happening place - within five minutes you will make friends with an absolute stranger and indulge in casual banter or serious conversation. You will see lots of interesting and attractive people.

Excellent selection of wines, cocktails and spirits. Gotta try their Sicilian Sunset cocktail - Grey Goose Le Citron Vodka, Lemoncello and orange juice with a splash of grenadine - and Carmel Apple Tini, if you want to be adventurous.. After dinner ask for RumChata Martini - it's simply amazing! All very reasonably priced.

They have a great outdoor patio as well. During Spring, Summer and Fall seasons, it is a great place to hang out.

Their desserts are bellissimo! A good variety and delicious. But what beats everything else is their exceptional service. Phenomenal attention to detail and a genuine attempt to make you feel at home. If you do not like something or expressed any slight dissatisfaction about anything, within two minutes the restaurant manager and/or owner and the chef will know about it - they have such an unbelievable communication discipline. Ande Pietoso, the owner, is an exceptionally warm and sensitive gentleman who aims to please you and get you in as a customer forever.

Can't say so many good things about any restaurant or that often as you can about Napoli 2. Very highly recommended! Whether it is a romantic dinner for two or a family and friends night out or a business dinner, it's a great place to entertain and be entertained.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We've eaten here 3-4 times and always enjoyed it, but I honestly think it's just getting better and better! The service is excellent and the food is amazing! I had salmon on a bed of sauteed spinach and it was fantastic; my husband had a filet and thought it was one of the best he's ever had! Would definitely recommend a visit here!
