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

This is a charming wood-pannelled place (with nautical-themed decoration) on the waterfront of Naples, in the Sta Lucia area. Linen napkins, proper tablecloths, prosecco before ordering- it's that sort of place. So, a bit more formal, but unstuffy. Interesting set menus, and there seemed to be several 'catch of the day'. It is possible to be carnivorous here, but the... More

All the five courses were delightful. Great tuscanian prosecco was perfect with all the fish portions (crude and cooked). The pasta was one of the best i have ever eaten.

The restaurant is tastefully decorated and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic. I ordered the seabass which was melt in the mouth delicious. Staff were patient and very helpful leaving the feeling of wanting to return. We visited for dinner at night, the restaurant overlooks the sea front unfortunately we were not able to take... More

Expert staff, both in the dining room and kitchen. Stupendous view. Old world charm, but not stuffy and boring. A very nice experience overall.

La Cantinella is a restaurant with a wonderful view of the sea across the road and beautiful bamboo decor inside that serves delicious local cuisine with personalised service. A perfect place for that leisurely meal - lunch or dinner.

I took my parents and closest friends living in Italy to this elegant restaurant with expectations of good food, ambiance and nice music. What we received was spectacular, the best service and overall dining experience I have received in Italy over the past 3 years. Excellent menu and wine selection. Gracious hosts. Enchanting live entertainment. Quintessential night out in Italy.... More

Live in Italy for 2 years while in the Navy and used to come here 20 year ago. Now well past its prime. There are many other places that do everything better. Go across the street to the Santa Lucia places. The decor is tired, the service abrupt and the food only passable.

La Cantinella was the third restaurant we dined at during our four days in Naples, and the best so far. We visited on the recommendation of friends who had enjoyed a meal there during a recent visit to Naples. Overall, a pleasurable dining experience. The atmosphere was on the formal side, with white table cloths, waiters in suits, live piano,... More
