Long waiting

It took more than 15 minutes before we even got a menu. The staff was excited and happy but especially towards themselfs and not interested in selling. If you have some (a lot actually ) patience they serve nice cocktails and snacks.

We came to Vanilla Cafe two nights in a row whilst in Naples and loved it. It is right along the front with a lovely view of the bay - beautiful! Its a lively bar, with a good selection of drinks and cocktails, however cocktails were probably a little on the expensive side - between 7.50 and 10 euros. The... More

On arrival in Napoli, late afternoon, I decided to walk along the boulevard after the hours of sitting in an airplane and taxi. Back and forth there were many restaurants and bars and this one looked nice. Quite a lot of seats outside on this sunny day were available. I sat down and waited. Tried to get attention from the...

This place is more expensive than cafe's all over Naples because it has an awesome view of the bay and a nice lounge setting. That's it. Everything else is pretty ordinary. So, If you are happy to pay a bit more for atmosphere then you will enjoy it, which we did. Outside on a nice warm day. Just go in... More

We came here for drinks on a Sunday night and were overly surprised to find the whole promenade (it's right on the coast) extremely busy - not like a British Sunday night at all! It's a very modern bar so not great if you want a quiet drink (that was not us on that particular night) but great if you... More

Tourist trap, poor service, inflated prices, bad food. Only positive aspect is the view which was blocked by a delivery lorry (to Vanilla Cafe) while we were seated.
