Amazing that after all these years, every time I go there, it always takes me back to my childhood. This restaurant is like a staple, I believe this one was the first place I tried pasta and pizza while growing up. This place has grown, just like I did too, throughout the years, I've seen so many changes going over... More

First time i wrote about Napoli was in december but i have been here quite some times and i have one conclusion... Napoli is one of my favourite restaurants in Panama. The napoli pizza is the best, have this with a Lemon pie dessert and you have the best combination. Such a winner!

well not what a real italian expect, old fashion sauces, all same tomato base, lousy presentation, grand pa restaurant of the late 50 in Italy. real this is considered a great italian but o boy o boy. is a plain disaster. the service only is ok, but all paper towels etc etc not even worth spending time to discuss.

Pizzeria Napoli was a nice find. We were finally able to enjoy some good pizza in Panama. Ask around and many will confirm a positive experience. Service was a little slow, but the servers were knowledgeable and pleasant. The place was packed and had a steady stream in; surely a good sign of good food. Definitely worth the trip.

We used to go to the original Napoli restaurant off of 4th of July Avenue in the 60's when I was a kid living in the Canal Zone. We went back for vacation and found the new location, about 2 miles from our hotel, and was thrilled to discover that the pizza is EXACTLY the same (delicious/chewy/not too thick or... More

Great tasting pizza. Place is busy, but the staff is able to accommodate well. Delicious. They also have different pasta options that are very good as well.

Really good pizza and cold beer. Whenever I return to Panama, I stop here for lunch. Pizza is good and hot. Served quickly (At least at lunch). Not in the best part of town, but don't let tat stop you, especially in the daylight.

This restaurant is most definitely not located in the most desirable neighborhood in Panama City. However the quality of the food and the prices are outstanding. I have been a customer for over 50 years! My father first brought me here for my birthday meal shortly after Napoli and Enrico opened the restaurant. Since Enrico's passing, his daughter and his...

This restaurant is a great family spot. Many locals on Sunday. Food is great, their sangria is worth the try. Could have offered more of the pita bread, but overall, food is great, atmosphere is family friendly and prices are fair. A definite repeat!

Although we didn't order much - two in my group only had coffee- the pizza tasted like the oven needed to be cleaned- kind of a burnt taste or a re-heated one. The cerviche was decent and the chicken Parmagiana was ok. The bread was delicious though. The manager was creepy though - he kept staring at my daughter..
