Restaurant Summary by Allan Borgen:

From the outside, Napoli Italian Restaurant in Loma Linda off Redlands Blvd. looks kind of uninspiring, you know those typical restaurants located in a small shopping center that blends in with the other non-descript stores however, once you enter this lovely restaurant, you are greeted by the wonderful aromas of food that emanate from the kitchen as well as classical Italian music and two beautifully appointed dining rooms.

This classy restaurant offers the best of Italian cuisine at very reasonable prices.  Each dish is masterfully prepared and plated while the sauces are exquisite.

I started my dinner off with popular Calamari Fritti $8.50 and the exciting Antipasto Napoli $8.50. Fried Calamari can be found on many restaurant menus, but the ones served here are excellent. The breading was extremely crispy and the meat was very tender. A side of Marinara sauce comes with this dish. The Antipasto Napoli was a wonderful surprise, a huge plate of warm mushrooms, eggplant, bell peppers, onions, olives, garlic, tomatoes and artichoke hearts sautéed in a delicious Italian herb seasoned olive oil. This dish could easily feed 3-4 and was loaded with flavors.

Next came the main courses, the Linguini Pescatore $21.95, Gnocchi in a Gorgonzola Cream Sauce $14.95, and the Pollo Marsala. If you enjoy seafood and pasta, you have to try the Linguini Pescatore. This dish features an ocean full of shrimp, calamari, scallops, clams, mussels, and salmon sautéed in olive oil, garlic and either a marinara sauce or a white wine sauce. I choose the marinara sauce which was light and was the perfect match for the wonderful seafood. Another favorite of mine was the Gnocchi which are small light pillows of potato enjoying tossed in a creamy rich and delicious Gorgonzola cheese sauce. The Gnocchi’s were light and airy and the sauce was, so good, that I wanted to put my entire face into the plate and lick all of the sauce up. I absolutely love this sauce! The last dish of this flight of dishes was the Chicken Marsala, boneless chicken breasts sautéed in butter and Marsala wine with lots of mushrooms with a side of fresh vegetables and pasta. The chicken was moist and tender and the wine sauce was mildly sweet and delicious.

The last two dishes of the evening was the popular Filetto al Funghi $25.95, a nice juicy Filet Mignon sautéed in a luscious brandy laced brown sauce with lots of tasty Shitake mushrooms along with a side of veggies and pasta, and the unique Ravioli di Portobello $15.95, large raviolis stuffed with a delicious Portobello and sun-dried tomatoes tossed in a fantastic rich feta cheese cream sauce.
In addition to a nice wine list, their desserts are very good led by the homemade Tiramisu and Canoli’s. They also have a fairly large banquet room for that special party or meeting and can assist you with all of your catering needs. The servers are professional and friendly and the entire dining experience is relaxing.

In closing, Napoli often gets overlooked when looking for local dining options but it is without a doubt, one of the best restaurants in our area.

    We want to thank you, for the chance to try NAPOLI Italian restaurant in Loma Linda
    When we walked in Friday night we were pleased with interior of the restaurant as the area around was industrial. We were seated and very surprised at how quiet and peaceful it was, NO noise from the kitchen which was nice after a long day at work.

    Out waitress was very polite and helpful with ordering. I told her I love eggplant parmesan, she explained the special tonight was stuffed eggplant with a red cream sauce. It was great and the portion was very generous. My husband had the fettuccini with scallops and shrimp. He was impress with the texture of the noodles and the seafood was tender and very fresh. It came with great garlic bread and a delicious salad with a tasty blue cheese dressing .
    We will be going back

    Thanks again Allen for a great referral.

  2. I would like to thank you for the opportunity to try out this place. I have heard great things about it and was so happy to finally get to try it out.

    I took my husband and my 16 year old son with me.

    We went on a Saturday afternoon. I ordered the pepperoni pizza, which he thought was great. I loved how light the crust was and the sauce had flavor.

    I ordered the baked lasagna which was wonderful! Best lasagna I have had in a long time. I got a salad with mine and was a bit bummed out by the blue cheese dressing. I expected to have chunks of blue cheese in it and mine tasted more like mayo.

    My husband had the baked ravioli and the only thing he wished it had more of was the ravioli… Other than that he said it was very tasty. My husband had soup and really enjoyed it.

    I would like to thank you once again, for the chance to finally eat here.

    Our waitress was very friendly and made sure to check on us often and didn’t do it when we had a mouth full of food. Which I appreciated because it is hard to answer when you are eating your food.

    My husband and I will be going back again!

    Thank you!!

  3. Thank you for the chance to experience Napoli Italian Restaurant. My friend and I went last night to try this restaurant for the first time and it truly was a pleasant experience. The Aviance inside was exquisite. Our server Anna went way above and beyond to make our visit informed and delightful. The menu was very well prepared unexplanatory on the meal choices. We decided on a Italian ham and pineapple pizza. We paired that with a dinner salad. Both of our choices were made with fresh and flavorful ingredients. We also decided to have dessert which we were pleasantly surprised with a hands on dessert tray to make our choice. We decided upon a white chocolate heart with a raspberry filling drizzled with raspberry sauce. I must say the desert was very very impressive. Overall my experience here was Beyond a great experience. I would recommend this place at any time for a wonderful dining experience. Five stars of my book. Thank you again for the chance of this opportunity.
