We go to the Napoli each time we visit Panama. We go to the one in Obarrio, not the one in the picture. The one in the picture is actually the original but in an older part of town. We have a favorite waiter who always remembers us, even the wine we drink! They are closed on Mondays so don't... More

Thin and great flavor. The cheese is excellent mozzarella cheese, pizza well done, and just the right amount of sauce. Many different varieties. The people are very nice and it is a family environment. The best in the Republic of Panama. My rating for food is only based on the pepperoni pizza.

I went here with some friends the food was really terrible it arrived cold and was poorly cooked. The food is called Italian but its more like something you´d get fed in a factory canteen.

The worst food and sangria in all Panama City. The menus were plastic and cheap yet they expect you to pay top dollar for their horrible food. The sangria was so watered down it was not even funny but they ask you to pay 20 plus dollars. The staff was so disinterested until it was bill time and he wanted... More

There are two Napolis in Panama City and this critic goes for the one in Obarrio. It is just great. If you are looking for good italian food, good price and the fastest service in Panama City, Napoli Obarrio is the place for you!

I am an Italian food and pizza lover. As a past member of the Sons and Daughters of Itay social club, I know what good Italian is. Everyone talks about how good Napoli is, and it is not bad. I have not yet found great Italian food in Panama - and maybe that is why people this Napoli si so... More

This Italian eatery is an icon. The dining room has not changed in over 40 years and the wait staff has been around for just as long. The pizzas are from an old wood burning oven that is well seasoned and provides fantastic pizzas. The other dishes are also quite good but the pizzas are teh stars.
