The beauty of the park and the enthusiasm of its caretakers are sure to make a lasting impression on every visitor.

Japanese Tea Garden
Visitors from around the world travel to the Japanese Tea Garden to admire what is the oldest garden of its kind in the whole country. Find tranquility among the many sculptures and bridges on this five-acre patch of ornate landscaping.

Napoli Pizzeria & Italian Food: Visit a Neighborhood Favorite

September 9, 2014 3:34 pm

Since 1968, Napoli Pizzeria & Italian Food has been serving Italian fare specialties to satisfied Vallejo residents. One Yelp reviewer says Napoli is "hands down the best pizza in town!" Try a Napoli pie and judge for yourself.

You can order a traditional cheese or pepperoni pizza with red sauce, or you can try some of Napoli's specialty toppings. Go for the artichoke hearts and bacon over Alfredo sauce, or opt for the kalamata olives, fresh garlic, and feta cheese for a Greek-style feast. Napoli has a large pasta menu, too, and the noodles are all hand-made on site. Try the ravioli with spinach-infused pasta that is stuffed with lightly herbed ricotta cheese, or dig into the deep-dish house-made lasagna. A variety of other items are available, ranging from chicken parmigiana to spicy buffalo-style wings served with blue cheese dressing.
