How right the 1st writer is!! When we went there several years ago, it was fabulous. We went back there again about 2 years ago & it wasn't very good. We found out from other diners near us that it had been sold, which the waiatress confirmed. I tried it again recently & they actually made a worse pizza than Pizza Hut if that's possible! NEVER AGAIN!!
This once was a wonderful place. I don't know what happened - I think the original owners sold it. We used to eat here 3 or 4 times a week. Then one day we ran into the waitress from hell. Goaded beyond redemption by a really nasty attitude (noted by another reviewer), we walked out and did not go back for a long time. When we finally did the place had lost it. The horrible waitress was still there, upgraded to some kind of greeter (perhaps she is one of the new owners - God help us all.) A really special aspect of this place used to be the sauce. This time the sauce had a distinct catsup taste. Somebody had cut a lot of corners. The rest of the food was the same. Goodby first class ingredents; hello shortcuts. Saves a lot of money but sure affects taste. Naples really deserves one star. I gave it two because they still have the best house wine around. Best advice. If you go get a salad and a glass of wine. Its the best they have. Get your Italian food somewhere else. Too bad - It was once so good.

It doesn't seem to matter when I go, the place is always hopping. It's definetely well run, the employees are happy and friendly. One of my favorites is the Penne Pesce Pollo. The pizza is always great, the crust is just perfect. I highly recommend it to anyone who asks.

Wonderful food, the stuffed mushrooms are a great start, the Greek Salad is the best we have ever had, and everything on the menu is delicious! The service is excellent, the atmosphere is pleasant, the owner/chef Mark stops by tables to make sure everything is just right! Portions are generous, and prices are a bargain! What a great place! We eat there often, and think it is the best restaurant in the Leesburg area.

This is a wonderful restaurant! We had heard so much about Naples and just had to see for ourselves. They sure do live up to their reputation!!
The food is FRESH AND DELICIOUS!! The ambiance is enhanced by the wonderful aroma of homemade Italian cooking that fills the air! The service is prompt and courteous even when there is a crowd! (Like there was the night we went! Good sign!!)
The Veal Piccata is VERY Tasty!!
The portions are generous, the quality is up there with the best and the menu prices will not cause you to regret your decision to dine out! Naples just might be Central Florida's best kept secret!!

Once we discovered it, this treasure quickly became a weekly event for us. Truly gourmet Italian in a lovely fresco-walled Italian countryside setting.
Stuffed mushrooms or tortellini drizzled with cranberries and honey are a great way to begin. Charming proprieter and chef Mark will stop by your table and is excellent with wine recommendations
The chickens piccata and marsala are divine, as is the much-requested Penne Pesce Pollo. Full menu of savory dishes, but save room for their over-the-top homemade desserts like Tiramisu and Reeses PB Cheesecake!!
