“Try it, and you'll definitely come back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I have been to many pubs in Naples and I can definitely state that this is the best one. There's care for everything in Morrigan, from the choice of food and drinks to the interior and exterior decoration. Far away from the standard franchisee Irish pubs, this one has got personality and it is one of the few English speaking pubs in Naples. It is a place to meet with friends and/or to have an excellent meal. Most valuable, there are not many places in Naples where you can sit at the bar and enjoy a quiet beer. If it's not busy enough and you have to chance to have a chat with the owner, you'll discover the great passion and effort he puts into his job, that has not faded after nearly ten years of experience. If you try it once, you'll definitely come back!

“A carefully put together pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

Nothing is left to chance at Morrigan. From the kraken, mermaids and dragons that populate the walls of the (small) ambient, to the choice of beers (all hand-picked breweries ranging from Orkneys to Belgium and from the Lake District to France). Guinness is on the menu of course, how could it not have been?
Everything is carefully chosen, that's the strongest and first impression I've had stepping into the Morrigan.

The beers are great, not as many to choice from as in other pubs of Naples but there's something for every taste. The usual burgers are aplenty and, again, carefully named (Asgard, Troll, Baldur etc.). Not that irish, I agree, but from celtic to norse mythology is a very short step for the average neapolitan. Lots of variety here, more than in others pubs. Aubergines, mushrooms and different kinds of cheese aren't uncommon in the menu. I'm afraid the quality of bread isn't on par with the quality of these other ingredients. Which is a shame considered how many different burgers there are and how much attention has been paid to make each one unique (not just some meat + some cheese + bread).

I didn't had the chance to taste their specialities because they weren't available, unfortunately. The Guinness stew sounded intriguing.
Potatoes and desserts are great too. The former are well cooked while the latter are few but each worth trying (the chocolate cheesecake is delicious, and I've never been a fan of cheesecakes).
Service is, finally, not too pressing: enough time to finish what you're eating without feeling like you aren't wanted anymore. Clearly, this on a slow day, on a saturday I bet service will be much more rushed.

Last word about music: great and appropriate. No dance, pop or soothing songs, which are out of context in a pub like this, but only rock.
Nothing is left to chance at Morrigan indeed.
