My family and I enjoyed the food there. The atmosphere is pleasant and our waitress was friendly. Not a large dining area and we were cramped in our booth. Very busy place.

I love Naples and have frequented them for years. The food is delicious, the menu and wine selection is great, and the service is consistently good. A few of the servers are a bit quirky, but in the best of ways. I would give five stars if they would consider even a modicum of redecorating; nothing has changed past the... More

One of our few gripes about living in the paradise that is East Tennessee is the lack of good ethnic restaurants. In my opinion…lots of luck in finding decent Greek, Polish, Vietnamese or German food in this area. The lack of quality Italian cuisine has been a particular issue for us. We moved here from Chicago where there are many... 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.
