We thoroughly enjoyed a lively and lovely dinner of delicious Italian favorites and one rather new entree. After a fun appetizer of the traditional St Louis favorite, toasted ravioli (delish!), I selected veal Milanese and my husband chose veal saltimbocca. Both veal dishes were very...More

The food was below average and the service was terrible, so I recommended to go somewhere else. People were treated like cattle.

Enjoyed going here as a large group. We were well served and the food was great. Only concern was that so many dishes were made with wine, and when I asked for one to be made without wine, I was told no.

Wonderful meal at this restaurant. Had dinner on a Monday evening. Stopped on a walk from our hotel and without reservations, a table outside was quickly set for us. (7:00 pm) The salad was delightful, which the staff split on to two plates before serving...More

I am not sure what hotel you are staying out to know if they provide any type of shuttle service. If you are staying at a hotel located in the immediate Clayton area you can walk to Cafe Napoli. If you are in a surrounding... More

When Tony Pietoso opened the original Cafe Napoli in the '80s, it quickly became a success. So Successful, in fact, that it moved to a bigger location at 7754 Forsyth Blvd. The restaurant continued to flourish with its generous portions of regional Italian specialties. Cafe Napoli has recently undergone a facelift and has added Bar Napoli next door. The swank cocktail lounge has soft lighting and a separate wine room that can accommodate 30 diners. The kitchen is headed by chef Jeff Davis, who has been with the restaurant for several years. Fortunato Pietoso, Tony's brother, has also returned to the kitchen. Tony makes rounds chatting with customers, many of whom appear to be on a first-name basis with him. The sons Ande and Kye split their time between the Bar and Cafe, as they are being groomed to take over the family business. Cafe Napoli is a must visit when in the St. Louis area. Some guests include Tony Bennett, Gloria Estefen, Joe Torre and Arnold Palmer to name a few.
