Thumbs up Chef Napoli

We heard a lot about the new resturant "Chef Napoli" and decided to try it for lunch today. Although the wait/service was painful the wait was worth it. Their sauce is as good as any you would get in New York City and the food was cooked perfectly. We definitely would go back.

Went there last weekend with a large party . . . had reservations and we got in after a short wait . . . drinks and bread came quickly but the wait for a stingy salad seemed like forever. Wait staff was good, no happy hour, drink prices are a high as any place around, no draft beer, food was very good. Not as good as Federal Hill in Providence but as good as any place around the Villages. I'll go back but not in a great hurry to do so!

Exclamation Agree

Do agree that the salad with the meal was seriously poor given all the other offerings. We waited about an hour for service and the waiter kept saying it was coming and we continued to wait. Net: Food was excellent, salad really lacking and service needs lot of help.

We went there last night with a party of eight which is the least number you can have if you would like to make a reservation. The salad portion was small but they were very generous with the fresh bread before the meal came. Meal portions were more than enough one couple split their meal a few of us had take home boxes. Food and service was excellent.

Meal was excellent but they should ditch the salad if they don't change it and offer something more appealing. Great to have a real chef in the area to show these short order cooks the way.

Hands down, it was the best Italian food we've had anywhere, and we've eaten at plenty of them. Down side, if you want to look at it that way, is it takes longer to get your choices since everything is made in the kitchen as the order is turned in. No problem for us. We ordered an appetizer and made some good friends as we waited. The inside has three large rooms with nice décor, wonderful service with well-attired servers, and on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, they have a strolling guitarist/vocalist who was very good and amicable, visiting each table and singing their requests, or serenading them with a choice of his own. We ordered the Bruschetta, which was very good. My husband ordered the Manicotti, which he said was the best he had ever had, and I had the Chef Napoli Trio, which was Gnocchi in their delicious, homemade tomato sauce, Eggplant Rolatini, and Chicken Parmigianino. It was also brought to our table piping hot, and was excellent. They have only been open for two months, but the place was packed when we went on the night of Black Friday. They offer a full bar, and are located in the Wildwood Business Center, on North Highway 30l. Highly recommended!
