The vibe

Understated sophistication coupled with knowledgeable and unpretentious service.

The décor

The interior is warm and rustic. Perch on bar stools at the wooden bench downstairs, wander upstairs for a table, or sit outside overlooking the street.

The crowd

Gourmands, wine connoisseurs, and city goers in the know.

The food

The menu has a Mediterranean bent and sharing is recommended. The waiter helped us pair antipasti and mains, including stuffed zucchini flowers and seafood linguine, and we ended up with a delicious selection of staples and specials.

The drink

Neapoli knows its wine, and the extensive list of local and international drops reflects that.

The verdict

Delicious nibbles and tipples served in sleek surrounds, and reasonably priced to boot. You’ll want to add Neapoli to your list of CBD regulars.
