Inventive Combinations

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

This was the best meal we had in the last 2 visits to Sanibel. For the most part we found Sanibel restaurants to be overpriced for mediocre food that some think is "wonderful". This place is wonderful! Way better value and taste than the island restaurants. We made reservations the week before for a Tuesday night. There were a few... More

Went there with a couple who were born in Germany hoping they would like the food. The restaurant is in a nice setting with plenty of outdoor seating; not fancy but very nice. The menu had a very good variety but the food was outrageous! The steak tartare was considered the best the German man ever had (beef was not... More
