No longer open to the public for restaurant dining, not for take out or delivery, since early 2019. Catering and special events only.That's a shame, because they were a good, not superb but strongly good, classic American Italian eatery. Really well done for that classic type, very tasty dishes with generous portions. Enjoyed their delivery several times but sadly never had the chance to dine in, but often read great things about them. More...

Nappies is really a great place to go on Sunday evenings, or any day of the week. They have great bands and nice atmosphere. Foods are really delicious. My favorite is their wonderful salad, with Eggplant Parmigiana and all of their desserts are sooooo tasty. More...

Food was delicious, everything from house salad dressing to sausage and pastas. Manager came by several times to ensure everything was going well. Reasonable prices for the portion and quality, well worth every penny. Will definitely recommend to all, and will be stopping here everytime I visit Gainesville. More...

We tried Napolatanos for the first time tonight and it was amazing! Our server, Justin, was personable and knowledgeable; he made some good recommendations. We shared a Greek salad to start, which was flavorful and authentic. Tuesday is half price appetizer night, so we tried the shrimp scampi flat bread, which was so good. My husband had the St Jacob’s Sauté, which was full of seafood and was really good. I had the chicken Marsala and it was fantastic. Everything tasted fresh and homemade. They serve toasted garlic bread to each table, which was yummy. Their dessert selection is expansive. We will be back! More...

Great experience! As Hurricane Michael Evacuees with a large dog, we were happy to find a place with friendly, professional staff, great food, and a pleasant outdoor patio where the Labrador was welcomed while we awaited news of how our house fared in the storm. Though lacking an appetite, I thoroughly enjoyed my scallops and salad while my husband said his burger was one of the best he'd ever had. The manager and our waiter shared our relief when we heard during dinner that we had relatively minor damage from the monster hurricane. We felt as if family shared our news. More...

My favorite restaurant! They have THE best red sauce in town. Their pizza is loaded with topping, and they use my favorite sliced Italian sausage. I had my wedding reception there in 1996, and since then our family and friends have celebrated dozens of holidays, birthdays, weddings and just great times. Oh, I almost forgot, they also have THE best wings in town! breaded or unbreaded they are crisp and juicy. More...

This local Italian establishment has been based in Gainesville for over 40 years. Going in the average age of their patrons was probably 70+ and you can tell that they are loyal customers. The service was good and they seem to have good specials such as half priced appetizers on Tuesday. I ordered the prime rib special and asked the meat to be medium. What I received looked medium rare at best and when I asked the waiter she told me that was what medium was like (take a look and please let me know if you agree with me). Overall the food was flavorful and tasted authentic, the wine reduction of the chicken Marsala really made it something special. Support Local. More...

Hands down the best place on the west side of Gainesville to sit down at the bar and chill with some fellow locals and fantastic staff. The food is pretty good and they don't charge you out the ying-yang like everywhere on Archer Road does. The kind of bar that it is easy to get to know people and the staff are awesome whether they recognize you or not. More...

Just had the opportunity to try the gluten free veggie lasagna which was absolutely delicious. The pasta tasted exactly like regular pasta and if someone hadn't told me, I wouldn't have known. This lasagna was tender and full of several different cheeses and loaded with crispy veggies. Bonus points for having leftovers too. The atmosphere also fun with very friendly servers. Hope to return in the future. More...

Wow now that was an incredibly meal. I had the lasagna. Multiple layers of thick lasagna noodles, ricotta cheese and thick, thick layers of real mozzarella cheese. Each portion is baked in it's own casserole dish. I think I paid $12.99. They even give you a basket of homemade garlic bread slices and pieces so you can use them to clean up your plate They also offer unlimited house salad for $3.99 per person you must try their house dressing, real Italian. Dont get me started about my wife's meal. The servers work together to make your trip wonderful. The place is old world Italian. Your mom would be sooo happy. This is the best review of any restaurant I have done in Gainesville. More...

Loved the minestrone, very traditional with a black pepper and oregano flavor. I had the sausage and peppers, that was so much food it could have fed a family of four. Unfortunately I was alone and had to send a lot of it back on the plate. Service was excellent.... I'll definitely return.2nd SeatingOrdered the spaghetti and meatballs, a litmus test for any Italian restaurant, and it didn't disappoint. Pasta was thinner than most but perfectly al dente. Also served with the proper amount of sauce and large shavings of parmesan.... Loved it. More...

This is my best friend's favorite Italian restaurant. He loves their pizza pie and salad ($3 upcharge for all entrees). This popular place is geared for groups and families and tends to be noisy at times. The fare is generally well prepared, e.g. steaks properly cooked to order, tender and flavorful as well as the full range of Italian favorites. Recommended. More...

If you're in Gainesville and you're looking for an Italian restaurant, well, you found a good one. We knew it would be good when we pulled up and there was a 10 minute wait. The wait was mostly due to the fact that we were a large party and they needed toime to put tables together. The food from appetizer to dessert was fantastic. The prices were fair, dress is casual, and staff was friendly I highly recommend this place. Note: when you pull in to the plaza, that it's located in, it's in the back. More...

We had a ceremony and reception here in July and it was a great experience! Rather than using the normal outdoor venue, we were able to use a small tucked away area of the garden which was perfect for a ceremony. Ginger was great to work with and very responsive and helpful. She did not charge us to use the private rooms or the gardens. Originally, we opted not to have chairs because of the cost, but day of, Ginger was very sweet and let us borrow chairs and 2 huge fans as long as we set it up and took it down ourselves. Which was no problem and the fans helped so much with the bugs and humidity. She also gave us string lights to use for the gazebo which made pictures so much better. They had a few parties scheduled before us, but they were still very flexible and let us come in and set up the gardens hours before our event and were able to move the party before us an hour early so we had even more time to set up the room.We had about 30-35 people at our event and the room they gave us was made for 40-45max. It was a bit crammed with the chairs up against the wall. But it was doable and thankfully everyone there was comfortable with each other so it was totally fine. It was a bit hot even with the fan on, but that was probably due to a mixture of a large amount of people in there along with a really hot July. The food was great and our guests liked the veggie lasagna and the pork loin a lot. Salad dressing was really good as well.Ginger also let us use the patio with no extra fee and that was great for dancing and doing desserts with more room.The only things I would say that could be improved on would be making sure drinks were being refilled. Our servers did give us our toast nicely and set up the food with good timing. And they were very sweet and approachable, but I do wish they refilled drinks because of how hot it was.Overall, our experience was fantastic and I'm very happy with how everything turned out. Our event was a bit last minute, but Ginger worked with us wonderfully and helped cater to all our needs. More...

We just had the most wonderful experience at Napolatanos last nite!! OMG - We had the best service of any restaurant! And Ginger was the best hostess and planner ever!! They let us in early so we could do some personal decorations too!! At Nappy's very detail is taken care of and the service people checked with your needs throughout the evening It was my Mother-in-Law's 90th birthday and they made her feel so cared for. So special. The entire staff shows a genuine concern for your every need. The price for the entire event including an open bar was unbelievably affordable. When I saw our bill I was shocked at the cost. We will do all our special "things" right there. Thank you for such a beautiful evening Nappy's!! More...

Finally, a restaurant in Gainesville with great service and a friendly atmosphere. Living in a college town has given me no expectation of having good service. I am so tired of going places where the service is mediocre at best. The staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our experience. The food was just as satisfying, the blackened chicken breast was very moist and well seasoned. Great family restaurant with a lot of variety. More...

Amazing food! We booked Napolatanos for mine and my fiancé's graduation lunch. The restaurant is closed on Mondays, but they opened the place up for our private party. It was awesome, we had the entire restaurant to ourselves. The person we booked with was very accommodating. We originally booked the party for 2 pm, but our graduation ended earlier than expected and they were able to take us at 1:30. The food, service, and price were great! You couldn't beat it! They made platters of food for us and our guest got their food buffet style. We chose baked ziti and chicken Marsala for our entrees. Both were delicious! The baked ziti was my favorite. The entrees came with salad and a ton of garlic bread! We had so much leftovers...I think we ate Italian for the next 3 days (which is fine with me). Our server was very nice and accommodating, I think his name was Mayner. And the best part was that all this food only cost $15/person. The lunch was the perfect way to spend time with our friends and family after a long and exciting graduation morning. Everyone was very satisfied with the lunch and enjoyed themselves. More...

We used Napolatanos for our graduation party and they went above and beyond to make sure it was an excellent experience all around! Our graduation was on a Monday, which they are normally closed on Monday's but for our graduation party they hosted a private dinner in the restaurant with a buffet style lunch. We were able to choose 1 meat entree plus a pasta, garlic bread, and salad all for only $10.99/person with a minimum of 15 people. This also included tea and soda. Our party was planned for 2pm but our graduation let out early so they were able to push our party up to 1:30 with only an hours notice. The server, Maynard (I may have spelled that wrong), was very professional and friendly and took great care of our family and friends during the party. We had the chicken Marsala and baked ziti and both were excellent. We can't rave about this experience enough. This restaurant is an EXCELLENT choice for large group dinners or parties, they're very accommodating with reservations and private dining spaces unlike other restaurants in Gainesville. Ginger coordinated our party and it was such a pleasure working with her. Thanks Napolatanos! More...

Had my sisters graduation Liner here ( lunch/dinner). The garlic bread they served as their bread offering was awesome and addictive. We kept asking for more and more bread . After the bread coma I had shrimp scampi with a side of spaghetti. It was literally a side of spaghetti  with marinera sauce.I swapped it out for just reg sphagetti because I wanted to eat it with the shrimp scampi as a meal not as a Side. My portions weren't big but everyone else' were pretty big  portions More...

Nappy’s is the best restaurant in Gainesville. Dean and Ginger, the owners, make everyone feel like family and the from scratch sauces can’t be beat. They also have the best chicken wings I’ve ever had. It’s not a successful trip to Gainesville without a stop at our favorite place. Family owned and operated restaurants are a dying breed, but it’s alive and well at Napolatanos. They are the best!! More...

I am going to Vary from my Good, Bad and Ugly format again. Nappys is a cool place and has been a part of gville for a couple decades. It has survived the test of time, Fire, and economic downturn. The reason for that is.... the food is consistently great! The service is good. The beer is cold and the atmosphere is fun. Dean the owner is almost always there and makes it a point to talk to most people. It adds a personal touch. I have been there so many times I can't count. I know I'll be back again soon too. This is a local place for real people. Even if you're a fake person, I'm sure Dean won't mind you stopping by, although he might call you on it. More...
