Very friendly restaurant near Vesuvio hotel

A lovely 4 course meal although the pasta was hugely disappointing . The veal was superb as was the vino- overall well worth a visit!

What an evening we enjoyed here. Service was splendid and the food matched up! We were guided by the waiter on wine and an excellent choice he made. More expensive than others available but worth it for ambience, food quality and the view. You wont remember the price only the top evening you had. Will visit again.

Dined here on Oct 8.Asked our hotel for a restaurant close by that served great food and more importantly provided a spacious table instead of those wretched small Trattoria type tables where you can virtually eat off your neighbours plate. Half an hour later we were in La Cantinella. Wonderful table beside open window with view of bay.We ordered the... More

Located on the waterfront just past the three grand hotels, this restaurant exudes charm. Lights slightly dimmed, tables arranged and spaced to give diners maximum privacy; this coupled with highly professional yet personal service. The menu is comprehensive (either here or at Da Dora we were give menus in English). The cooking is a bit more refined than Dora; I... More

Using tripadvisor to find this restaurant you have a pretty good idea of what is going to happen. In this case the food itself was excellent, but the service was incredible. From the start they took good care of the two 13 years old girl I brought with me. They made sure they felt like were princesses. On top of... More

Our hotel recommended us this restaurant. We had a big Italian menu with seafood, pasta, fish and dessert which was good. The staff was nice. But the best thing was the music. There was a pianoplayer and a lady singing and playing the saxofon. They were just great and made our first night in Naples so happy and joyful !!... More

Great restaurant top of the line, the only draw back was there was a nail sticking out from a chair we were sitting on

This is in walking distance of the Grand Vesuvius Hotel. You must be buzzed in as the door is kept locked. The food was very good and the staff was attentive. The portions are small so you should consider ordering more than the main plate. The roast suckling pig was delicious.
