Napoli’s Italian Restaurant March 1, 2008

I kept hearing about this wonderful little Italian restaurant called Napoli’s.  It was close to my house so I decided to take an out-of-town friend there for lunch.  At only $6.95 for the lunch special, which included a salad, I thought it would be a nice outing.

To begin with, we had the homemade bread on the table.  Oh my goodness, it was very good.  (A warning:  Don’t eat too much.  It is very tempting but use restraint.)  Next, our salads arrived.  They were small, all lettuce and one slice of a tomato.  This is not how I typically like my salads, but it was a lunch special so I am not going to complain.

I ordered the manicotti and my friend ordered the Chicken Marsala.  The manicotti was better than my mother’s which is a huge compliment.  I have never particularly liked any manicotti that wasn’t my mother’s.  It did not have too much garlic which is my typical complaint of most Italian food restaurants.  I would wager to guess that the manicotti noodles were made on-site.  My friend said the Chicken Marsala was very good as well, and the whole thing cost less than $20.  You can’t beat that for great sit-down Italian food.

The service was extremely quick and efficient with Italian waiters on the side.  The atmosphere isn’t anything to write home about, but is clean and has character.

With the great price, service, and location I will definitely be back.
