Italians have created some of history's most timeless combinations, such as pasta and marinara sauce, detailed frescos and church ceilings, or the code to unlock the pope's diary.

Napoli Italian Restaurant summons the spirits of Old Country recipes by stirring up a menu of traditional Italian plates and pairable glasses from rackfuls of fine wines. Toasted bread dance floors hold aloft fresh tomato, garlic, oregano, and fresh basil atop an antipasto of bruschetta ($7.50). Patrons rest their incisors on a boneless bed of pollo marsala ($10.95) to dream of sweet marsala wine and dating the cute bicuspid across the jaw. Chunks of shrimp, calamari, scallops, clams, mussels, and salmon swim laps between strands of pasta in the linguini pescatore's pool of olive oil and light marinara or white sauce ($16.50). Oenophiles flex their matchmaking muscles by pairing varietals with their meal, marrying a full-bodied red to the milk-fed veal of the vitello piccata ($12.50) or setting up a glass of white with the baked chicken breast of the pollo florentina ($12.50).
Virtually every surface of Napoli Italian Restaurant drips with Italian-inspired designs, from the flower arrangements to the dark wine bottles to the melting clock faces bounded with Roman numerals. Slide your knees under one of the cloth-swaddled tables and unfurl the burgundy napkin across your lap while getting lost in the staff’s hypnotic recitation of special recipes and efficient service.
Napoli Italian Restaurant
With Romanesque statues, violin instrumentals, and wafting aromas of authentic dishes, Napoli Italian Restaurant pulls out all the stops to evoke a traditional Italian dining experience. After traversing printed carpets clothed in all the hues of autumn, diners can pass around a lunch plate of bruschetta or utilize the bright-red napkins to guide bulls away from a midday plate of steaming chicken marsala. Dinner unites an international wine list with entrees that include savory veal piccata, a wide array of vegetarian baked dishes, and fettuccine twisted with succulent shrimp and scallops.
The spacious dining room's multiple bay windows cast a golden glow on monthly wine tastings and glimmer with soft moonlight during five-course dinners.
