We strive to bring the freshest and highest quality ingredients available to our customers.
We have been serving downtown Columbus since 1992 with dough, bread, sauces and pastas made daily by us on site.
All pizzas are hand tossed by our own pizzaioli.
Our vegetables are roasted and marinated in our own blend of spices and finest olive oils.
Built on the foundation of big family and good food, Café Napolitana, opened its doors
over 20 years ago to the downtown Columbus lunch crowd. Owners and operators Palmo and Deanne Aracri epitomize the Ma and Pa persona
and often times their four children can be found hard at work behind the counter.
Palmo, an Italian immigrant, from Calabria, Italy, grew up with the culinary gene running through his veins. His father owned a small cafeteria in Italy. His older brothers Salvatore and Quentino both owned pizzeria and Italian restaurants in the South before settling in Dayton and Cincinnati, respectively.
Palmo learned the craft from hard work in his brothers’ restaurants, before earning the title of pizzaiolo in 1992, when he and his wife opened their downtown Columbus location. The two have strived to make Café Napolitana a family friendly establishment and a place where one can get a great slice of New York style pie.
