Again we were not disappointed. Meal was superb and waiter excellent (who always remembers to order a bottle of Amarone for us). Would highly recommend
We did not have lunch but we ordered 2 x pizzas and starter between 6.....this was fine with restaurant. Very hot this weekend and we did not feel any cooler in the restaurant!
Easy to use. Booking was quick and efficient for making the reservation. Will certainly use this service in the future. Can highly recommend, much easier than phoning to reserve!
Great service, great food, outstanding value . Just the place for a cheap n cheerful lunch especially as the set lunch is served on a Saturday till 2.30pm
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!!
Friendly cosy restaurant excellant value for money we were able to book a table when the festival was on which was great as not a lot of places accept bookings at that time of year then it's a nightmare getting in for a meal anyplace so well done Bar Napoli for that
I went with my daughter for an 18th birthday lunch. We really enjoyed our experience, the food was delicious and the service was very friendly and welcoming. I would recommend Bar Napoli to anyone that enjoys italian food.
Warm welcome, friendly staff. Service was good with staff attentive without being overpowering. The food was well presented and delicious, with no delays. Although busy the restaurant was not noisy. Bar Napoli will be on the list of places to dine when returning to Edinburgh!
Been coming to Bar Napoli for years, Restaurant always has a great atmosphere and the service is great, its like being one of the family. Food is great especially the mussels, ribs and the veal.
I have been going for years and recently the lunch menu has changed and also the price has gone up. service was slow for lunch which is unheard of and not the usual standard. I did complain as the starters took 45 min but I was told new tills were in place and this was the issue, no money off and no free drink etc. I will return and hope things have went back to normal as this is a great Italian in the centre of Edinburgh.
Amazing food and attentive waiters. Authentic and rustic Italian setting! Pizza was to die for and the pasta was the same. Very reasonably priced for quality and being in the centre of town! Will be back again! The noise was loud but we didn't struggle to hear each other! It added to the atmosphere I felt.
As always, wonderful atmosphere and beautiful food and very good service. Whenever we are in town Bar Napoli is a must visit for us - always good.
The staff at Bar Napoli make every customer feel like a long awaited, much wanted guest. The food is fantastic, too! We will definitely be back.
This is our 2nd visit to Bar Napoli - The food was fab - service, welcoming - great experience. Worth a visit but I recommend pre booking as it gets busy.
Excellent food and service, staff were friendly and attentive and great value fir money considering we were city centre. We stayed in Elder York Guest House so the restaurant was about 5 mins walk and also walking to The Playhouse. Would definitely return if I go back to Edinburgh.
Lovely atmosphere, service and food. Huge portions of lovely Italian food. The waiters were friendly and helpful. We went during Festival time so it was very busy but that didnt deter from the service. We have been before and would definitely go again when we visit Edinburgh.
Excellent lunch. Good lunch menu with many options for starters and mains. Good sized portions and freshly cooked. Service was excellent and a good atmosphere and very busy. The price was amazing for a 3-course lunch. Returning today and next week and will highly recommend to others.
A bargain at £6.75 for a 3 course lunch with loads of choices on their special lunch menu. The house red wine was very good as well. It is over 20 years since I was last in this restaurant. I will not leave it as long until my next visit. Overall, a very pleasant lunch experience.
The lunch menu on offer was excellent value for money and the food was lovely and hot and lovely staff. The house wine - what a bargain . Would certainly recommend it to friends and family. In fact I have booked a table for next month.
We really enjoyed Bar Napoli. We had great service and delicious food. The atmosphere was lively and friendly. Will definitely visit again when in Edinburgh
The atmosphere, the food and the service is second to none but the value for money is exceptional. It's an absolute must in Edinburgh. It's central location too is great and it is overall one of the consistently good restaurants around.
I was very pleased with the restaurant. We had to wait a few minutes for our table but once seated the service was really good. We did not wait long for our drinks or for our food. When the food arrived it was amazing and very tasty.
2nd visit here. So much choice on the menu and food was faultless. Total for 2 mains, 2 drinks each and a garlic bread was less than £40, great value for the standard of the food. Would definitely recommend!
There were six of us, four adults and a fourteen and twelve years old. We were celebrating our daughter's birthday. The food was good and so was the atmosphere. It was very busy considering it was a Monday evening.
Top quality Italian food, great house wine and excellent service. I usually go for the business lunch but was not on offer over the festival period. It's still excellent value for money. If you've not already been go!
Excellent service, friendly staff and great food, the Calzone pizza was excellent - I would highly recommend. The profitereoles were also very tasty. Very busy place, so if you have a larger part well worth bookngin advance
Excellent service and the food was delicious. Lunch menu was very reasonable and I would definitely recommend bar napoli. I would book in future as it does get very busy but I really enjoyed my visit
The food was excellent and well priced and the staff were very friendly. The portions were a very good size and we didn't have to wait long after ordering. House wine was very nice too
Very good food , service and atmosphere. The only thing I noticed not to my liking is the fashion for no carpet or curtains which both absorb sound and give a more pleasant experience.
Excellent service, great, freshly cooked food at an amazing price! Good atmosphere, very busy and can't wait to return. Would recommend the pate to start and pizza for main. Dessert is usually a surprise!
Excellent lunchtime special deal. Only small criticism was that we were going to order a different desert and pay the difference but the waiter placed two fruit and icecream in front of us before we had chance to say anything.
Meal was good we were not offered any water with meal and when I tried to get the waiters attention he seemed to hurry on., there was no eye contact .Ladies toilets had no toilet paper in any of the cubicals again tried to get waiters attention but was ignored.
Absolutely fantastic! Not a single thing to fault, the food is delicious, the staff are very attentive & know the products well & the restaurant was clean and comfortable! Will definitely be back!
This is my second time at bar Napoli and I couldn't fault it in any way staff are all lovely food is beautiful and the prices are great too. Will definitely be back.
Food really good waiter was really friendly plenty space down stairs for larger parties nice to see the food being prepared nice menu and you can buy 1/2 carafe wine very reasonable priced
Busy - and deceptively bigger restaurant than it looks from outside. Busy restaurant - atmospheric and reasonably priced. the up side - the service was very good - the down size - food was pretty average - nothing special.
We had a lovely Time ! Only Small thing was the dessert if the day was a ball of ice cream x That being said the ice cream was lovely ! Excellent service and lovely staff . Great value
Lovely place and great value for money, the lunch menu is worth looking at. The staff are friendly and the place was busy. Our lunch was lovely and will definitely be back.
Really enjoyed the time that we've spent there. Lovely food and really big portions. Could not be better :) we have ordered antipasti and two different pastas. Everything was delicious. Thank you:)
Family of 6 ate from the 3 course lunch menu which had a good selection of choice and food was delicious. House wine fantastic too. All for about £80 great value for money. We will be back soon.
The restaurant provided an excellent three course lunch for a very competitive price. The quality of the food was good, the service was prompt and polite, and the surroundings were pleasant.
Really busy little restaurant, had to wait a bit to get a table but the rugby might have had something to do with the busyness. Staff were friendly, food was delicious, came quickly and was reasonably priced.
The food was Lovely and they had a great selection. Everything was reasonably priced and there was a really nice ambience in the place. The service was good and we are looking forward to our next visit.
the staff were friendly and accommodating. It was my girlfriend's birthday, and despite being very busy they went out their way to bring out the cake/seat us etc. Very good!
Great authentic Italian cuisine. Service was great as well and little time in waiting for your meal. Highly recommend it and the menu provides a great variety of Italian food.
Excellent food and the loveliest food in great price. You can't not fall in love with this place. Great selection of wines and pizzas. I'd especially recommend home baked bread.
Great atmosphere, great food! Had an authentic Mediterranean feel to the place. Service and food were both quick with food out within 15 minutes of ordering. Definitely will be returning!
Cozy Italian restaurant in the heart of town. Lunch menu can't be beaten on price, excellent value for money. Wine of the month deal also great, you won't get better value for money in Edinburgh.
