Great spot tucked in a nondescript retail strip

We went with two other couples. One of the couples had been there previously and loved it. Not a restuarant you might find on your own. In a small retail strip off 41 next to a massage palor and smoke shop. But it's worth the effort to find! Very interesting Med Italian menu. They had three... read more

While visiting Fort Myers, FL and looking around for the perfect lunch spot we discovered a hidden gem. La Trattoria Cafe Napoli, tucked away on a side street, didn’t look all that promising from the outside, but I am certainly glad we decided to give it a try. Don’t expect the usual Italian fare here. We lived in Italy for... More

Edgy Italian food with a selection of Tapas. Wonderful service. Very nice decor. Hard to find. The restaurant is not on 41 (South Cleveland Ave), but in a strip of businesses running perpendicular to 41. Going north, take a right at Jersey Mikes and continue along the parking lot to the right of Mikes. Because we had never been there... More

Met some friends here for dinner and was delighted to be introduced to this out of the way café. Among five of us we shared appetizers and different entrees. All were exceptional. Fried thinly sliced plantains for a casual starter, entrees of lamb chops that melted in your mouth and chicken and fish creations with perfectly created sauces and exquisitely... More

I guess the name "cafe" instead of "restaurant" describes this place accurately. We had reservations for 5 people, but when we arrived they couldn't find our reservation. The good news is that the food is excellent, with tapas and many unique offerings. However, the restaurant is very bright, with uncomfortable chairs and busy waiters.

This is one of my favorite lunch and Dinner Restaurants in the Area. I had the Madrilena Flat Bead again yesterday for lunch and as always it was divine. The service is always spot on and friendly.

A wonderful dining experience. Local, friendly and comfortable. The food is exceptional, combining many favorites with something new and fresh each night. The Servers are wonderful; professional, yet friendly and engaging. It is like coming home after a really long trip. Not to be missed in Fort Myers.

Small, with a unique menu, often cluttered up with too many diners, consistently excellent. Live music on some days.

Somewhat obscure from the road but oh what food! Everything from the yucca fries, to the bread to to the unique entrees is beyond tasty complimented with a nice wine list.

The menu was diverse with a tapas menu which was great for appetizers and a full menu with Mediterranean flavor. We had a party of 10 so had the opportunity to try several of their tapas. All were delicious especially the eggplant rollatini, the plums wrapped with prociutto, and the empanadas. The veal calabrese was excellent and also the seafood... More
