One of the best kept secrets in Naples! A wonderful little cafe with music, wine and food in a great area of Naples. We went on several occasions and each time we found great singers and jazz musicians downstairs while upstairs, Diego the owner, was entertaining the patrons! A must see place in Naples for nightlife!!

Great place, great music and great culture. The best mojito in Europe and other good drinks. Conferences, book presentations, trios, quartets, Most pleasant in mild weather, when you can seat outside, but nice also in winter. Lovely posters everyday. Gay-friendly.

This place is a true gem and almost unknown to the tourist crowd; I am almost afraid to share it with anyone, so please keep it a secret! Everything here is done with great care and attention to detail. Very cool restaurant, bar and club. The staff is very nice and definitely customer service oriented. Nice large outdoor patio area...
