Napoli was established in 1976 by brothers Emilio and Leo Sposito. They had moved to Ithaca from Fondi Italy to pursue their dreams, and eight years after arriving, they accomplished that dream by opening Napoli's doors to the public. Together they operated Napoli until Leo's retirement in 2003. The following year the restaurant moved to the Gateway Plaza right in downtown Ithaca.
From the beginning their plan was to create an authentic Italian experience that takes customers to Italy through the taste of their food. The atmosphere has the constant aroma of home made dishes made from family recipes. All sauces and dough are prepared fresh daily.
In 2004, when Brian Mosher heard that Emilio was considering retiring and closing the restaurant, he decided to carry on the traditions of Napoli. He purchased the business in November of 2004, and learned the recipes that made Napoli Pizzeria Ithaca's favorite Italian restaurant and pizzeria. To this day, the restaurant maintains high customer volume through word-of-mouth due to the the quality of their food and service.
