Lovely Dinner

Everything about this place is excellent. We have visited many times and never been disappointed. If you are lucky enough to catch Gloria there you will be blown away. The paella is our favorite but have tried many dishes and all are good. Probably one of the best places in Fort Myers

Reservations on a Thursday night. The noise level is very high, there was a surprise party happening so we understood it would be loud, but it was very loud. The server read off of her order pad the specials and she could not answer any questions about them. Ordered a bottle of wine from their list that they did not... More

The service, the food, the owner, and the chef are all amazing EVERY time. By far, one of the best menus I have ever tried. You must visit while in Fort Myers. The food and the atmosphere leave you longing for nothing! I love love love the food here!

Must order stuffed plums with prosciutto. Sea bass was cooked to perfection however it was swimming solo with a slice or two of cucumber; needed quinoa or polenta for the delicious sauce. Staff are friendly and atmosphere warm. Avoid the table by lavatory; lights need to be dimmed. This hidden gem is worth finding!

We've been to Cafe Napoli several time and never been disappointed. the food here is an interesting mix of Italian with a Spanish flare. My favorite appetizer is the stuffed plums. Plums stuffed with Gorgonzola cheese, wrapped in bacon and roasted. They are delicious and I order them every time we go. On our last visit I ordered a veal... More

Once inside this cafe, restaurant you'll find it has more atmosphere especially when the solo guitarist plays some background music.. The location belies the experience from inside. Good food, good wine and good service..

The restaurant is not where you would expect the quality that we found. You step into a different place, a different ambiance than the exterior. Sort of "don't judge a book by its cover." It is a nice casual place - very nice, but not elegant. The food was delicious - very tasty, indeed - and very nicely presented. And,... More

The menu, the food, the service and atmosphere are great! But the run down building and shady plaza does not measure up to the quality of the restaurant. Hopefully they are considering to relocate, because it definitely deserves a different location.

In town just for the evening, we looked up this restaurant on Trip Advisor and were so pleased to have found it. The food was very good, the staff was very friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed the place. Gina, our server and bartender, made us feel quite at home. It's in a little strip mall and a surprising find in... More
