Recommended by Hotel Il Convento having had previous bad experience down at the port. Great value for money. A family run Italian restaurant. Service was very attentive but could be improved. I eat a lot faster than my mother ( so I keep being told) so once I was finished they cleared away my plate while my mother was still... More

You are unlikely to just wander past, but this place is worth finding. Only just off "via toledo" they specialise in seafood and a little local language will be useful. We liked it the first time so we booked again the next day as it can get very busy. Superb food, very friendly, incredible value.

Went here as the place was recommended by the hotel. Our welcome and general service was poor. I ordered fresh fish which was delightful, my boyfriend first asked for sausage and mushroom pasta and was told it was out of season??? He then tried pasta and peas, that was also out of season??? He eventually asked what they did have... More

This place serves excellent food and had a good atmosphere. Instead of some crowded yelling places near. We where really treated here. And you won't believe your bill.

We were keen to find a fish restaurant in Naples on a Sunday night, but wanted to stay away from the pricier haunts down on the sea front. This was the perfect solution. A very genuine family-run restaurant with a clientèle of locals and tourists. Very relaxed. Great food, lovely fresh fish and vegetables, fantastic pasta and Neapolitan dishes. Would... More

Me and my whole family went to A Pignata to celebrate my mum birthday. Anna, one of the owners and the waiters are simply delightful and always willing to help. The food is just magnificent and exquisite. This is the right place to truly experience the real Neapolitan cuisine. As a Neapolitan man I honestly can't tell you what dish... More

My boyfriend and I went there after shopping in Toledo. We did not book but we were accomodated without any problem. It was a family-run type place with a mix of locals and tourists. Once we were seated we saw a small queue forming outside so I guess this place had a good reputation. One down side was the limited... More

This trattoria was recommended to me by my host in Naples so I decided to check it out. It was very busy by the time I arrived. Fortunately they had a table available. Being a trattoria there are no printed menus which means you are in for a (pleasant) surprise when the food is served. The entree was mussels in... More

We have read about it here and tried on our visit to Napoli. The food is great and not expensive. For a big plate of mussels only 5,5€! Pasta and all other things we ordered were mouthwatering and!!! They gave us a 7 euro discount (of 32,5€ check) for nothing and a complimentary dessert :)) so we enjoyed it definitely

A nonpareil of selection, freshness, quality, and taste, we think that one might be challenged to find a better choice for a very fine meal in Napoli. Choices of fine starters (marinated fresh anchovies, octopus, many more...) and a wide variety of 1st and 2nd piatti of fish- or meat-based recipes, side-dishes, desserts, etc. required us to return there several...
