If you are hungry, I don't recommend it! Mixed salad had a shape and taste of an "exploded cabbage". The staff is not friendly. Table tax is 2 euro per person - the menu says only 2.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us, and we walked there for an early dinner. The owner took our order; since the place wasn't busy, he took the time to help us understand what the dishes were on the Italian - only menu. He also served us, along with a couple of tables of folks who were clearly regulars. My... More

We were recommended this place by our hotel. We suggested they didn't recommend it again. We were greeted politely enough by what must have been the Head Honcho and shown to our table upstairs. After he realised we were only going to order a main course his attitude went rapidly downhill. You couldn't say that things were thrown down on... More

We were worried by some of the touris traps but this was not. It has a huge local clientel. The servers spoke some english and the menu had english as well. Service wag good and polite. Wine was cheap! Food was good, not 5 star but simple tasty meals and not the same old red sauce and pasta.

The best thing about this place is the food but it is spoilt by the hopeless manager. His best bit was his greeting when we arrived. That was in French but we are English. He smoked behind the counter, did very little work, leaving the waitress to serve and wash up. The poor girl tried to do everything. He shouted... More

If all you require from a restaurant is good food, impeccably presented, then we would not have hesitated in giving it an excellent rating. The food we had here was very, very good with a modern take on traditional Neapolitan cuisine. However, what diminished the experience for us, was the poisonous atmosphere between the chef, the head waiter and the... More

We ordered a tasting menu and a nice bottle of red wine here. The bill ran about $50. Euros per person, so the range of prices on the Tripadvisor listing is out of date. Nevertheless, we had excellent service and well prepared food. Yes, we would return. There is a second-level room which was cozy.

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we were grateful for the advise. The food here was excellent, with a concentration, of course on seafood. We ordered a whole grilled sea bream for the two of usand our waiter did a very nice job of deboning and serving the beautiful fish at our table. They also offer a good... More

This is absolutely not recommended. They have a menu for 15 Euro which is a rip off. We were sitting next to a couple who did not go for the menu and their portions were exactly the double in comparison to ours. When I pointed out to the waiter, he said: what are you expecting for 15 Euro? What kind... More

We were wandering around Naples when we happened upon this place. We hadn't seen a review but decided to try it anyway. How lucky we were. Naples is known for its food and this place did not disappoint. An added feature was hearing the owner below (we were seated in the upper level) laughing his head off as he was... More
