Less than a minute later Chievo came close to extending their advantage through Alberto Paloschi, who clipped the crossbar with a firm header.
Lorenzo Insigne and Juan Camilo Zuniga aimed strikes from long range just wide as Napoli struggled to find a response.
Chievo made the visitors pay just before the break as Cyril Thereau controlled a lofted through-ball before beating Morgan De Sanctis from close range.

Goran Pandev and Pablo Armero were thrown on after 60 minutes but Napoli were unable to find a way back into the match.
