Great pizza, great salads, great gelato. There are two areas, the main area is casual but upscale while the wine bar is more romantic. The servers are really nice and helpful. Easily the best pizza place in Indy

The food is great, but the service is really bad. I ate at the Keystone at the Crossing location, with wife and daughter. Our 30 minute wait was actually 50 minutes, and when we were finaly being seated we walked past a bunch of empty tables, which we could have been seated at earlier. We hoped that the worst was now over, but they had run out of the ingredients of two of their salads (Beets and Beans) as well gluten free base. The waiter actually joked that they had run out of the tomato sauce base they used earlier!! We wont be going back..

Took my wife to Napolese while we were in town because I've enjoyed the other Patachou restaurants. Food was impressively solid. Environment was cozy yet modern. The ONLY reason that I give this restaurant a good rating is because our service was HORRIBLE. Our server, after finding out we weren't drinking wine, clearly favored other tables and took forever to get us our check. Not the worst service I've ever had, but pretty close.

Best pizza in Indy, the way pizza is supposed to be made. Thin crust, very few fresh toppings, and cooked in an extremely hot oven.

Ate at the Keystone location. This place could have been amazing. The flavors are all there. But their chefs don't understand the cooking process and how certain foods affect others. Menu- I'm not sure why they charge you an arm and a leg to create your own pizza. I mean each topping was $3-4. So you could spend over $20 on your own 3 topping pizza while the their set menu creations were in the $14 range. I really don't get that. Almost insulting to customers, as they did not allow substitutions for toppings on their set menu. First off their chopped salad was delicious and the portion was plentiful. Perfect for sharing between 2-4 people. I seen some other tables order the salad that came with quinoa and I think most people were a bit miffed that they paid $10 for a pile of quinoa. I mean it was a mountain of the stuff with some veggies mixed in. On to the pizza. We did not try any of their crazy topping creations. None of them seemed very appetizing for a pizza. We got the Hamakers. Came with some pepperoni, bacon, sausage, and mushrooms. Flavors were really good. However the execution was terrible. Soggy pizza crust that fell apart in your hands. Toppings and cheese not evenly distributed amoung the six slices. If your selling Artisan pizza then care and craftsmanship should be at the forefront of your food. Its needs to come out looking perfect. I'm not sure who's idea it was to put whole mushrooms on a pizza. They hold too much water and thus release that water in the cooking process. Hence the soggy crust in the middle. Also their pepperoni slices while delicious were too large or thick. Which resulted in a greasy concoction in the middle of the pizza. Which also contributed to a soggy crust. Its the finer details that can sink a good pizza. They serve thin crust pizzas, so too much moisture ruins a good thing. They need to re-think some of their practices. Unfortunately this wont' happen as they have no shortage of customers.

Dear Martha Hoover, Napolese has always been a favorite place where my daughter and I enjoy a great meal, we live in Meridian Kessler and have been customers for years. My daughter, who now lives in NYC, was home for Thanksgiving for the first time in 2 years and the first thing she ask for was a Napolese salad. We decided to order carry out, not a good idea, the pizza was burnt and the salad had a HUGE moth in it, which my daughter almost ate! When I called Napolese about the moth, the response was, no lie, "Those little critters can get in there from time to time"! Really Martha???

One of the best pizza restaurants in the area! Try the homemade gelato if you get a chance.
