The traditional marsalas, picattas, parmigianas. Started with some calamari. It was goid but not fresh. You could tell it was frozen. I had sea scallops in a lemon wine sauce... More

Following a friend's recommendation we had dinner at this local upscale Italian restaurant just outside Knoxville. The atmosphere, welcome, service and food were outstanding, with a great choice of specials and classic dishes. The deep fried aubergine starter and Goddess seafood salad were particularly delicious and the portions generous. A real find!

Naples restaurant was recommended by hotel staff. visited on a busy Friday night. We were seated in the back room, which must be used for banquets,etc. this room could not be called romantic. The food was good and unusual. Minestrone soup was more like a thick chili. Perhaps, this is how it is made in Naples. Husband enjoyed it very... More

This is a classic Italian restaurant, in the heart of the popular Bearden District of Knoxville, that has been around since 1936. I first went there ( when known as Alberti's) in 1966 on a date as a high school junior at nearby West High School and have returned over and over again for more than 50 years. This is... More

We were seated at the exact time of our reservation on a busy Friday night. Service was top notch. The meal was amazing and very reasonably priced for such huge portions. Will make this a regular stop for family events.

Naples has been serving great Italian food at this same Bearden area for many years. Red and white checkered table cloths and all your favorites. Always very clean, prompt and pleasant service and ample portions at a reasonable price.

I admit, I'm spoiled when it comes to Italian fare. I've experienced my friends and family's first-generation Italian grandmother's cooking and baking. In the mid-Atlantic region I have enjoyed many Italian-American meals at restaurants and in private homes. I was excited to eat at Naples, hoping that it would be "real" Italian food. The names were right, the atmosphere was... More

Bustling and classic little Italian joint. Great service from Rory , as well as the rest of the staff and food was really good. I had the special frutti di mare and it was very nice. Definitely recommend stopping in.

The Veal Piccata sauce was as dark as a brown gravy and very over powering. No lemon taste at all. The Sea Bass was not eatable. The Snap Peas were as mushy as mashed potatoes. We asked our server not to contact management due to the quality of the meal was so bad that even if they comped our meal... More
