Just Left from Via Napoli end i have to tell you how much me and my Family enjoyed this place :) We are Italians and we know when it comes to Italian food, first impression we got was the brick oven bread that comes straight from the oven to your table, then we started with mozzarella all 5 combination and salumeria witch is the way to start dinner and everyone loved those apps, then i had tilapia limoncello and was out of this world, my wife had a lasagna witch is little different than traditional lasagna but she loved it, and for dessert i had their homemade tiramisu..mmm whoever wants the best tiramisu, Via Napoli is the place to get it, then of course Italians know how to finish dinner..Shot of chilled Limoncello.. i eat lots of places but Via Napoli is my new place!!!

I went last night with a friend I hadn't seen in a long time, and we both had salads and the Salmon with the asparagus and potatoes. The napolitano salad was to die for. Anything with goat cheese, fruit and walnuts is perfect. The salmon was beyond amazing. And the creme brulee was good, I prefer it served completely warm, but it was good nonetheless. The server was not intrusive nor did I feel pressured at all. This is my 4th time dining here since they changed the name of the restaurant, and they're yet to disappoint me. Great job.

My husband and I decided to try somewhere new and the reviews almost made me not want to try this place. Its Tuesday night and there where a good number of people there which should be a testament to their food alone. I felt warm and comfortable on one of the coldest nights of the year. The brick oven was cool to watch as well, if your into that. I enjoyed the decor with the wine walls and strange pictures of Italy people having fun on scooters I guess in Napoli. Our Server was great he was confident and courteous and explained the menu to us as the titles of the sections are in Italian (but had a short description of what it meant in English) It was still nice to have it explained and moved the process of ordering along to get what we are there for, the food! They give you a complimentary air bread and a knife which you don't need just rip a piece tasty chewy and lightly seasoned. We got fancy fried Mozzarella which was tastier than regular because they stuff with prosciutto and greens, the dipping sauce was a red "gravy" good stuff! We were in a pasta mood so we went with the create your own pasta and Eggplant parm. Both were equally delish since we swap for fun. For the build your own we got the spicy sausage with vodka sauce on a fettuccine noodle, the sauce was luscious and wrapped us in a warm blanket of goodness and the spiciness of the sausage really complimented the mild cream sauce, yum! The Eggplant parm was not the best I have ever had but was really fresh and the red sauce was delightful with the addition of fresh basil it really rounded this dish out nicely, I would eat again. For dessert we shared a Tirmasu light textures with strong flavors, the perfect punch to knock us out. We left with fat bellies and smiles on our faces, best part we had a little to take with us for later. I enjoyed our visit to Via napoli and would return to try some of what this cute place has to offer. I'm glad the review didn't keep us away, my husband made the point that most people who write reviews only do so to poo poo things, which means everyone else who eats here likes it, so keep that in mind and try things for yourself. Enjoy!

This is one of those places that should be on Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. Management is making quite a few big mistakes. The atmosphere is dark and the tables are isolated. With no one around it feels like you are not welcomed. The restaurant is showing wear and tear. My booth seat was cut and exposed. The bread was a strange air filled item covered in butter; it was difficult to cut. Entrees were not very flavorful. Although my linguini and clams was full of fresh clam, the taste was mediocre. I would not be surprised if this place closed soon.

Food was not too bad, but it is pricy. Ive had better and worse.

Average at best. The service, barely attentive, was throwing our food at us, we hadn't finished our appetizers and had our table cleared before throwing the soup and salad at us, the same treatment for the entree. The food served was supermarket quality, the asparagus was large and woody. Good food starts with good ingredients, and the management does not seem to understand that concept. There are other Italian restaurants in NE Philly that simply blow this place away with similar price ranges. I will not return. This place will attract the same sheep who wait in line at the Olive Garden.
