Thanks to the TA reviewers who took the time to review Osteria Il Gobbetto. On a rainy night we followed our GPS (mistake), but finally found this local, family-owned, neighborhood restaurant. And what a find it was. We arrived just after 7... while they don't open till 7:30, Gennaro, the owner, unlocked the door, invited us in and offered us a glass of wine. We were reading the menu but I decided to ask what he recommended. Right Question!! He invited us into the kitchen to meet his wife, Anna and her helpers and they began to open bins of the freshest fish imaginable and explained how they would prepare each. He brought the most delicious antipasta dishes (there were many) we've ever tasted - real Neapolitan cooking! I didn't think we'd be able to eat our dinner, but couldn't leave anything on our plated. The sea bass baked in a crust of salt is one of the most memorable dishes we've ever eaten! The local white wine is outstanding. The restaurant quickly filled up, mostly with locals and many Navy officers in dress uniforms. We were the only tourists. This is truly one of the most authentic, wonderful dining experiences we've ever had. It was worth the long walk in the rain!
