Some pizzas was overburned, the waiter dropped a pitcher of water near us but no one came us to ask excuse. No one asked if food was good, the only important thing was bring us the bill

Consistently a good place to meet, eat tasty food, not feel packed tightly, get some natural light, friendly service. A little loud but workable.

Was very quick for lunch - in and out within 45 minutes. Given how long the lines are at peak hours at some fast casual spots in the area, and considering that the food is tasty, it’s a great spot to go to for lunch with coworkers or clients. Would highly recommend!

Naples 45 delivers one of New York's best truly Italian pizzas and does so extremely efficiently and so serves its business lunch crowd very well: I've been coming here off and on since 2002 and it continues to deliver without feeling as old as that date might imply. Naples 45 executes very well.

However, I would be remiss not to note that the pricing is out of control: $83 with tip for two pizzas with few toppings (no meat) and no extras, one green salad to share, and two coffees—no other drinks—is excessive. Will I go again? Yes: there are few sit-down choices that are anywhere near as efficient in this part of Midtown East, and it is very reliable. It is also cheaper than the even more outrageously priced (and co-owned by the Patina Group) Cafe Centro, next door—which has virtually nothing for non-meat eaters.

But, I now feel gouged, and unlike the pizza, that's beginning to leave a nasty taste in my mouth. The place was full. They need no lessons from me in running a business. I used to enjoy an occasional catch-up over a pizza though, and now I will be thinking, is this a $40+ catch-up, or should we just get a coffee or after-work drink?

Stellar meal. Marred a bit by the over the top noise level. Great mushroom pasta and an outstanding salmon. Great service and convenient location.

Extremely convenient to GCT and the subways. Large and able to handle big parties. Food is not unreasonably priced given its mid-town location. The only strike I have is that it is not quiet.

Always have a great meal at Naples 45. Service is excellent and the food is very good. Large portions and they move quick without rushing you. It’s always very busy and it’s a large restaurant so it can get a little noisy but not so loud you can’t have conversation. Perfect for a casual dinner or a nice occasion. Outdoor dining in the nice weather is the best, but the ambiance inside is warm and inviting in the colder months as well.

Soups and salads very tasty. Table service perfectly fine. Hostess did not connect my companion and I when we arrived separately and only by chance did I see him seated elsewhere half an hour after we each arrived. Biggest problem was the noise level. This place seriously needs and could well afford sh investment in some acoustic improvement to the ceiling.

Acoustics are really bad due to the building design. The food is good enough - nothing special but better than most places. Prices are reasonable. Location is uber convenient for commuters who want to meet with Manhattan based folk.

I will say, it was fast. I went in for a 1 PM lunch reservation by myself and I was out before 1:30, after having soup and a pasta. The soup was fair. I ordered linguine with manila clams for $24 and it came out very quickly. It was so hot, that I can only imagine that it was precooked and then reheated in a microwave, or perhaps its components were. The taste was fair. I certainly didn't feel like it was worth $24 but nor would I have sent it back. The waiter asked me if I wanted bread with my pasta...an odd time to ask. Overall, meh. I am not inclined to rush back, though the pizzas that other ordered looked good and if I were in the neighborhood and wanted to split a pizza with someone, I might give it another chance.

I enjoyed a delicious salad and pizza for lunch. The service was fast and efficient. Naples 45 is the perfect spot for a quick business meal if you're around Grand Central.

I had personal pizza which was delicious and the crust was thin and crispy.
Overall, it was a great experience with food, service, and the ambiance.

Thanks

But the noise level is ridiculously high. It is difficult to have a conversation there.

Conveniently located for my spouse and I, Naples 45 is easy to get to via public transportation in midtown Manhattan. There is indoor and outdoor seating with a bar in both settings as well as full service restaurant serving pizza and mostly Italian dishes. We both ordered salads and beer; my beer was flat and her salad lacked the chicken mine had. The service was excellent. Don’t worry, we would return!

I would recommend Naples 45 with a strong caveat -- the noise level is outrageous and no one can hear anything. The night we were there there were a lot of people in the bar area and not so many at tables. Those of us at the tables could not hear each other and I was with 2 millenials. They couldn't hear each other. I will not go back there during the height of lunch or dinner hours due to this very annoying and uncomfortable noise level. Couldn't you put glass enclosure around the bar so the noise doesn't deafen everyone else? The food and service were good. But that noise level is losing you customers.

weather was nice so ate outside, the inside gets very loud at lunchtime. Food and value is great, but can't go for a conversation.
