Opened in 2007, this is 1 of 2 Napoli’s locations in Hoboken (the other on Washington St.) founded by Frank Volpe, whose family established the legendary Lombardi’s Pizzeria in Manhattan all the way back in 1906! This pie is a cross between NY style & Hoboken football pizza; a thick, heavy & doughy 18-inch super soft pie, despite a beautifully blackened & charred undercarriage. The texture of the dough is remarkably similar to a wood-fired Neapolitan pizza, uber soft with zero crisp to go along with a chewy & crunchless crust. Definitely not undercooked, the flop is minimal & the slices are fairly firm & tasty, just ultra soft. Melted magnificently, the mozzarella is mostly creamy & flavorful with a marvelous consistency. The taste of the cheese compliments the dough & sauce tremendously. Super sweet, terrifically tangy & bursting with tomato flavor, the sauce absolutely dazzles. Despite a slightly chunkier blend, it’s not overly hearty but the volume is significant, adding substantial weight to the pie. The best attribute of this pizza, the sauce shines brightly; however, I could see it being too saccharine for some. In a battle of taste vs texture, the dough, sauce & cheese are all delightfully delicious; but the mega soft & chewy texture of the dough & crust holds this pie back. You might like a softer pizza; and if you do, you’ll love this pie. A crispier & crunchier pizza would be an automatic 8+ with these outstanding ingredients. A 7.6 is a more than fair rating with plenty of potential to score higher if the crisp can be adjusted.

Best specialty slices in Hoboken. The plain slices are above average but the specialty slices at Napolis are as good as it gets!

Recently moved to Hoboken from Chicago. I tried Basile's first, but I was not impressed. Napoli’s Brick Oven Pizza though… WOW. Pictured is the Margarita with half Pep. The San Marzano sauce puts it over the edge!

Burnt on top but soft on the bottom - is the Covid rush to blame? Not the best classic pie on the Hoboken streets. Pizza 5.5/10 but those garlic knots 9.5/10.

Back in Hoboken at Napoli Neapolitan style brick oven. Pretty impressed. The crust was very good no flop and a nice char the bottom with that Neapolitan style dough. The sauce had a really good flavor to it but I would’ve liked a little more on my slice. She’s also had a really good flavor but was cooked a little too long. But a great all around slice. It was greasy as hell though. Staff and the store was awesome though so that’s always a big plus. 7.5 that’s the score

Sauce is amazing, dough looks crunchier than it actually is, little chewy/thick but not terrible. Finished all three slices regardless.

Other than the excess grease, this is a great pizza. Maybe the best crust in Hoboken. Nice and charred, no flop. Sauce and cheese are just a bit plain and could use a bump in flavor.

While not the best overall pizza in Hoboken, it’s the best vodka pizza in Hoboken. Uptown Napoli’s is better though
