Wow, that wine was great!

From the outside it looks like a very posh restaurant and does not look very inviting. We walked in in our holiday clothes and had a great evening. Prices are a bit higher than average, but we thought the food was worth it. The service was great, glases of wine were filled wheren required, advise... read more

Naples requires periods of respite and this restaurant soothes as much as it pleases. It is both highly professional but also warm and welcoming. We had an amazingly good meal - the baby octopus dish was amongst the best I have ever eaten. The waiters clearly enjoyed our enjoyment of theri food and presentation and we also had a wonderful...

Our family had a magical evening at this excellent restaurant overlooking the Naples bay. There was a fantastic pianist playing tunes both classic and ageless. Our daughter joined in and played two pieces which were warmly embraced by the patrons. The decor is so interesting - made to resemble a galleon. The food is outstanding. Fresh seafood, fabulous pasta and... More

To start out let me say that service is very hit or miss on Italy as a whole. Not this place! The service here was first class from the moment I walked in the door until I left. Food was outstanding! One of the 2 best meals I had during the 9 days I spent in Italy. Cant say enough... More

I hosted a group of 11 people - both Italians and Americans for "pranzo" on May 15, 2015. The restaurant is lovely; the location along the sea is captivating; the service was most attentive and the food was delectable. My guests have travelled extensively and all agree this is an exceptional place to dine.

It is only a stone's throw from the harbour wall, but years way from the other restaurants along here: this is a restaurant with a really old world Italian feel. The food, from a relatively short menu, is good, and the service is gently-paced rather than slow. We had lunch here and at around £50 for two with no wine,... More

We were there last night. Long story in short: * the decoration is AWFUL. The decorator felt like putting anything on the walls, that he found spare at home. Bamboo walls, mexican hat ?!?!?, weird lamps, etc. * the service is EXTREMELY, I repeat EXTREMELY slow. We had our dinner in almost 3 hours time. * The service is NOT... More

In the search for gluten free in Naples, our hotel recommended this restaurant. On every level, it was superb. Overlooking the bay, window table, exceptionally friendly and helpful, wonderful food including desert, great wine. Our huge thanks to Angelo and John for a great evening, including the restaurant car back to our hotel. All good wishes for much success in... More

We dined here about 4 years ago and it hasn't changed at all - the same staff, the same bamboo decor. Apparently there's a new young chef and perhaps the food was a bit more ambitious than before. Certainly very fresh fish, not cheap, but well cooked. Lovely wine list, helpful manager, attractive atmosphere. If you're looking for a sophisticated... More
