Authentic Italian restaurant with great prices for such an expensive area and amazing pizza! The staff are very friendly, that was our first time there and will definitely be going back
As always our meal at Bar Napoli was very good. We were celebrating my 70th birthday, with our daughter and two grandchildren.We all chose different things from the starters and mains from the menu and were very pleased with the quality. The service was prompt and efficient, and staff were friendly. As we left one of the staff said he remembered serving us before, my husband and myself. He has a good memory. We live in Kirkcaldy, Fife but have regularly visited Bar Napoli over the years, and now come with our family for special occasions. The atmosphere is always good and the prices are very competitive !! We will be back.
Everything about Bar Napoli was enjoyable, from the wonderful food and wine, the excellent prompt service and the friendliness of the staff and the really competitive prices. My wife and I so enjoyed our lunch here yesterday (16/11/17) that I am about to book us in again for lunch tomorrow (18/11/17) Thank you Bar Napoli see you tomorrow!
We booked a table for our wedding anniversary for 8.00pm. On arrival we had to wait for a table as our booked table was not ready for us. We both ordered fillet steak stroganoff with papardelle. The "alleged" fillet steak was so tough we could not cut it never mind chew it. We mentioned this to the waiter when he was clearing our table and he could see we had eaten very little. To his credit he immediately said he would not charge for the main courses, only the bottle of wine. He said they would take this up with their suppliers, Campbells, regarding the quality of meat. The overall experience spoiled our anniversary evening and we shall certainly not be returning to Bar Napoli. We live in Inverness and have been twice previoulyl to Bar Napoli when the experience was much better. A long way to go for such a disappointing evening.
As always, Bar Napoli lived up to expectations. Excellent service, wonderful food and a fabulous atmosphere. Background music is exactly that - in the background to allow friends to have a good chat whilst eating. Our trips to Edinburgh wouldn't be complete without a visit to Bar Napoli.
The food in Bar Napoli is always delicious. I was a little bit disappointed with the service this time and the waiter could have been a bit friendlier. We also asked to move tables as we were crushed in the corner seat. The restaurant was empty but we were told all other tables were reserved. We also had a reservation so what was stopping them swapping tables?? They did eventually after a bit of persuasion and being told we had to be out by a certain time. It didn't spoil out meal though as we had great company!!
We have eaten here on several occasions and have never been disappointed. This visit was no exception. Food, service and value for money were excellent. We took friends who were 1st time visitors. They loved it and said they would return. We will be back during December if we can get a reservation. Love Bar Napoli
