We booked this restaurant last night arrived on time the service was quick but the owner was very brusque and unfriendly.All the other diners were Italian and we were the only English they were all treated in a friendly way whereas we were rushed through our courses. I ordered octopus which was inedible the whole octopus head and all stewed... More

Stumbled upon this little gem of a restaurant whilst trying to find a place open late on Christmas Eve. Proper traditional Italian restaurant with lovely staff. There was only the set menu but what great food, good wine and plenty of it. Highly recommend.

This is a good solid local restaurant, tucked away in a small side street off of via Chiaia and therefore easy to miss although it does seem to attract a number of loyal regulars. Typical of many restaurants in the San Ferdinando district it offers excellent home-cooked favourites at very affordable prices. Well worth checking out.

The restaurant is located in a side street leading down to one of the maon shopping streets. Although it's not a through-road, thee's plenty of 2 wheeled traffic so it's not exactly tranquil. The food was fresh and homemade - super octopus anti-pasti, somewhat oily spaghetti vongole, very good vegetable soup, good lasagne and fresh prawn and squid frittura. Friendly... More

We ate dinner here because it was close to and recommended by Apart hotel Plebescito. We ordered a variety of dishes to share, everyone was delicious. Tried lots of vegetables, meatballs, pasta, pasta fagioli. Even liked the house wine. Very nice place to remember our last night in Italy.

Went here on a sunday night. all the outdoor tables were taken at around 7.45 but we easily got a table indoors. Ordering slowly was not a problem. We shared the pasta putenesca was excellent. We then ordered polpetti, malanzane and roast potatoes. Again all fresh tasting and just the right quantity. With house wine and water the bill came... More

My husband and I have been there twice enjoying the amazing food and house wine. We tried parmigianno zucchini, pasta fagioli, gnocchi, and some other amazing food! We preferred to eat inside but the only downside was the AC wasn't working. Other than that, it was an exquisite experience.
