I admit, I'm spoiled when it comes to Italian fare. I've experienced my friends and family's first-generation Italian grandmother's cooking and baking. In the mid-Atlantic region I have enjoyed many Italian-American meals at restaurants and in private homes. I was excited to eat at Naples, hoping that it would be "real" Italian food. The names were right, the atmosphere was... More

Bustling and classic little Italian joint. Great service from Rory , as well as the rest of the staff and food was really good. I had the special frutti di mare and it was very nice. Definitely recommend stopping in.

The Veal Piccata sauce was as dark as a brown gravy and very over powering. No lemon taste at all. The Sea Bass was not eatable. The Snap Peas were as mushy as mashed potatoes. We asked our server not to contact management due to the quality of the meal was so bad that even if they comped our meal... More

Recently ate at Naples Italian Restaurant and was impressed, just as I have been for years and years. Our meal started with a shared Tuscan Wedge Salad and it was delicious. My entree was the baked Cannelloni, which was so satisfying. I could eat it every other day! My wife's Scampi Amaretto was awesome, too. As always, one of the... More

Recently ate here with family, and it couldn't be more "comfort food" oriented, along with a warm "comfort atmosphere," too. The wait staff were friendly and accommodating, the menu is good, pricing is fair, and the food is excellent. They also have a couple of "private booths" with doors or curtains if you want to do a more romantic, special... More

My wife and I enjoyed the atmosphere at this family owned restaurant. The food was delicious, although I should have known better to order "Maryland Crabcakes" in Knoxville. Other than that, no regrets!

We had a large group of about 16 and they accommodated us in a back room so we would have some privacy and be able to talk. Despite that, the staff was attentive and friendly. The bread and garlic butter was quite good. Menu had good variety and some great classic Mediterranean food dishes. Flavor was good but my portion... More

Went there with a large group recently. The service was excellent and the there are plenty of great options on the menu. I ordered the shrimp scampi and it was pretty good. The restaurant has a long history and the ambiance is that of an 'old school' Italian restaurant. Recommended.

Been here 3 different times. I love veal parm and order it at every Italian restaurant I go to. Out of the 3 times I've been here, the veal parm was good once. Ordered a side of gnocchi. What came to the table was 3 small potato pancakes. Disappointed. I only go if family wants to. In the future, I'm... More

I first ate at Naples 40 years ago. I swore I would not go back but recently I had lunch there after 40 years. My opinion is still the same. This restaurant is very ordinary with food that is just ok. Knoxvillian's unfortunately don't know what good Italian food is. They say this place is romantic. I see it as... More
