I attending a private whisky dinner that took place in Napolese's Bar 14. This is a small intimate place with limited seating and it's own bar. The menu is a little different than Napolese, everything was perfectly prepared. All the food was served on mix and match fine china pieces served from antique silver trays. It looks like they purchased... More

Yeah, this is one of those kind of "millennial" places that has kale on everything (not really, but it's "that" kind of vibe). That sounds like a put-down but I just mean it's a cool place and everybody who works there is cool. But who cares, the pizza is VERY good! I fancy myself a bit of a sophisticate when... More

A very successful restaurant but TOO LOUD - our group finally surrendered to the noise and ceased all attempts at conversation until after we left - not sure how to address but will not likely return soon - most unfortunate.

This is a favorite restaurant of our family. When our kids come home from out of state, it is the first place they want to visit. The pizza is delicious but don't miss out on the salad (served in a bowl for the table). Nice, low light atmosphere. It is a small place so be prepared for a possible wait.... More

This is a great spot for lunch. The salads are very good and can be made in half portions during lunch hours (you have to ask though, not lusted on menu). Service is usually friendly but can take a while to get check after meal.

Although our five minute for a table of 8 turned into a 25 minute wait, the food was delish. Beautiful salads, great cheesy focaccia, more than ample sized pizzas... There did seem to be ample seating outside but it was a little too chilly for those of us from Southern California!

I stopped last week and had a late night drink with friends. Liked the place then but not now. Today I stopped in and sat at bar by myself.

Thank you for visiting us twice in two weeks! We're sorry to hear that your experience was less enjoyable the second time around, though. Rude service is certainly not up to our standards and we apologize if this was the case. Do you by chance recall your server's name so that we can address asap? More

Napolese is one of my favorite spots to go for dinner. Their menu changes seasonally and they often have unique combinations of pizza toppings which are delicious. I am a vegetarian and there are always plenty of options for me. The SoBro location has a restaurant and wine bar which are side by side but have separate entrances. I highly... More

I never thought there'd be such thing as bad pizza but I found it here. The place is cool I actually really like the setup I wished their pizza was better. They are charging for farm ingredients which is great but Their tomato salsa was so watery and flavorless. The toppings were barely there. I don't think I'll ever go... More
