I couldn't eat either the starter or the primo. Both were inedible, and I had to pay the bill and walk away to find another place to eat along Via Medina. A costly mistake but there was no way I could force myself to eat tasteless and very bad food. I took two bites of my starter and it was... More

We arrived about half an hour before the restaurant opened but we went away until they were ready. When we returned about 5 minutes after opening, naturally the restaurant was quiet at the start of service but I was at a total loss to understand how it then took then ages to take our order and then we waited nearly...

After looking around for a place to eat, we came across this place. We decided to try it out, and glad we did. Best meal we had in Naples. The staff was friendly, helpful and spoke enough English and us enough Italian that it was a smooth order. Food came out quickly but was fresh and hot! My husband order... More

We dined here twice, an evening meal and then a lunch - on the second occasion the staff remembered us. On both occasions the food was good and the red wine, although house, was excellent. The staff were friendly, although apart from the manager their English was limited. On both occasions we had the sharing platter speciality which was made... More

Went twice, once for Pizza then for Pasta. Service was brilliant, they remembered us the second night we were there, everyone one spoke English to a degree and was very polite. The food was amazing and I have since found out they have a restaurant in London which I will try to visit.

So disappointing: poor service and food - also not as funny as many other places. The pizza was undercooked and the beer not as cold as it should.

There is just so much wrong with this place. The only redeeming quality is that they serve a decent glass of vino rosso and the pizza is an ok value. It ends there... To start I ordered the parmiggiano melanzane. To my surprise it's served cold. The server offered to heat it for me and the entire plate returns hot,... More

I was surprised to find out that this place is a chain restaurant. It did not feel like one. First it looked empty from street, as eating section is half floor up. Owner/manager greeted upon arrival and asked if I wanted to have English menu, whereto I replied yes. I ended to sit at the table with Italian menu, which... More

The food here is consistently good. It is not the best place to eat in Naples nor the cheapest but depending on how long you are in Naples for I would say it is well worth a visit. Fratelli La Bufala are a chain restaurant so there are a number of these to be found throughout Naples and the surrounding... More
