Checked into our hotel-the Renaissance. The person at the desk recommended the restaurant. It was an easy walk. When we got there we found a charming place. We were a little leary upon entering because at that point (7:30 PM), we were the only diners, but we know that Europeans eat later. Well, Antonio came and greeted us and what came next was one of the most pleasurable experiences we have encountered while traveling in Italy. Antonio's food was delicious. Within minutes of our arrival the restaurant was packed. Antonio speaks 7 languages so it was quite the united nations. We enjoyed Antonio and the food so much that we reserved for our 2nd night. Although, Antonio did not know us from a hole in the wall, he cooked a meal that my husband requested-especially for him. Antonio had no way of knowing if we would indeed return but this is the kind of person he is. On our 2nd night, a tourist from St Petersburg, Russia (another repeat diner from past year) presented him with a book of poetry which Antonio proudly displayed. These 2 nights dining in his restaurant were certainly one of the main highlights of our trip. We now have a new friend in Naples-Antonio!!! Bravo!!!
