First time and did not disappoint. Service was great from Dawson. After reviewing the menu with us he suggested a great off the menu chicken dish for me which which was great. Look forward to trying something different on my next visit !

I had to attend a business meeting at Cafe Napoli and I must admit, researching the menu prior to going, I was expecting the usual crappy mid-western take on Italian food. But I was happily surprised when the dinner was far beyond my expectations. This...More

Been there 3 times with friends, we would be there more if we lived in Clayton instead of NY. Best consistent Italian food you will eat with outstanding service. But you do pay for the pleasure, but you don't walk out upset!

This place is a couple of minutes walk from the Clayton Plaza Inn, where I was staying. They have a nice indoor space, but it was a balmy night, and I ate outside under a large tree on their patio. I had to move to...More

It is not good enough for a restaurant to just have delicious food anymore. There has to be great service for a restaurant to stand out from the pack these days. Café Napoli's food did not disappoint, but for the prices I paid, I expected...More

I am always disappointed when a writer describes in detail a special dish for that evening without giving the price. As was the case at Cafe Napoli the specials are often the most expensive items on the menu. My entree was from the regular menu,...More

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.
