Description: When Tony Pietoso opened the original Cafe Napoli in the '80s, it quickly became a success. So Successful, in fact, that it moved to a bigger location at 7754 Forsyth Blvd. The restaurant continued to flourish with its generous portions of regional Italian specialties. Cafe Napoli has recently undergone a facelift and has added Bar Napoli next door. The swank cocktail lounge has soft lighting and a separate wine room that can accommodate 30 diners. The kitchen is headed by chef Jeff Davis, who has been with the restaurant for several years. Fortunato Pietoso, Tony's brother, has also returned to the kitchen. Tony makes rounds chatting with customers, many of whom appear to be on a first-name basis with him. The sons Ande and Kye split their time between the Bar and Cafe, as they are being groomed to take over the family business. Cafe Napoli is a must visit when in the St. Louis area. Some guests include Tony Bennett, Gloria Estefen, Joe Torre and Arnold Palmer to name a few.

Busy restaurant with even busier bar area. Both have same menu. Italian based average per person will be $20 - $30 without drinks but worth every penny. Nice atmosphere in both bar and restaurant.

The food, the service, the ambience -- yes, they have it cornered. We were there for a party. The server was excellent and very patient. This was not the best Italian food I have had but certainly very close to it. One of the best places for an evening out.

Walked a block from our hotel in Clayton to enjoy a cocktail and appetizers. This is a very nice restaurant to sit outside on beautiful patio and see and be seen. Service was great..Cocktails were very good.

We came for dinner and chose to eat outside. I had a steak and pasta dish which was really good. A bit on the pricey side, but was an enjoyable dinner.
