“Bob & Rita's 40th Anniv Italy Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We stayed a B&B around the corner from here and walked past this place on the other side of the street and never noticed it. it just so happened that on our last night of our trip we were walking on that side of the street and noticed this restaurant. it was 7:30 on a Friday night and they were not open yet so we decided to walk around the neighborhood to see if anything else sparked our interest. We wandered around for the half hour and returned here and was glad that I did. The owner of the restaurant, Giovanni Serritelli, greeted us at the door an apologized that he was still setting the dining room. once we were seated the adventure began. WE started with Spaghetti Carbonnara and Strigoli with sausage in a broccoli pesto. The second course was a baked fish filet with sliced potatoe wrapped in bacon and a grilled steak. Everything was cooked to perfection and the presentation was not overdone. The best part of the evening was finding out that Giovanni wasn't your run of the mill restuarant owner, but a real food historian. He has a real passion about food and its history and is willing to share it with his customers. we were mesmerized for an hour as he explained teh history behind the pastry Baba.

So if you are in the Museo area of Naples at lunch time you should check out this place. you won't be disappointed.
