The food here is ok depending on what you order. Pasta is overcooked. Sauce is bland. Portions are huge. Service is good. A local place no doubt. Prices are fair based on portion size. But heres better in town and close by.

When you just want to go out casual and enjoy great Italian food this is the place to go. It is less expensive to eat at Via Napoli than it is to eat at home! We have been enjoying the food there since they opened many years ago. Try the 2 for $29 specials as a starter during the week.... More

Stopped here for dinner last week by myself for dinner. The place was busy and was greeted nicely and sat near front door. This is a byob restaurant but went without, order the raviolis and had a salad. Device and food was excellent. I would recommend for couples and do byob.

This was a good basic Italian restaurant. I would have rated it higher if they had some more interesting dinners and specials. The pasta and veal/chicken dishes were good and large portions. BYOB was a plus. Place is crowded and a decent value for basic food. Their sauce was ok, canned?. A bit noisy. Our service was good. Manicotti seemed... More

My girlfriend and i dined there last night. The food and service were excellent and the portions large. We had mozzarella caprese with red peppers for an appetizer and were served 8 pieces of mozzarella and tomato. We both had veal parm and the veal was very tasty. For dessert we had cheesecake and carrot cake. Both were very good.... More

Went to this restaurant on a whim after our friends invited us. They go here often and seem to really enjoy Via Napoli. As first time visitors my husband and I were not impressed. First of all, they brought out everyone's dinner except mine and proceeded to state that there was a mess up on the order and my food... More

We've been coming here for a long time- great place for 2-3 couples to get together on a Friday night to catch up and get ready for the weekend. There's good specials and the mussels are tasty (don't order hot unless you like your mouth on fire). if they have a Broccoli Robe & sausage special, order it- always good.... More

Great casual restaurant with very good food at a great price. Serving size is large so plan on taking half home. Best part is that it is BYOB. Try the shrimp parm it is very good
