“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

This is the first tapas restaurant I've been to in SWFL and it did not disappoint. We started with the stuffed squash blossoms, which were perfectly crisp, stuffed with goat cheese and herbs and simply delicious. We also had the white anchovies with garlic (the sweetness of the sauteed garlic, the tartness of the lemon and saltiness of the sardines worked perfectly together), spicy octopus (the most tender octopus I've ever had), Wild mushroom confit (the mushrooms were great, but there was nothing particularly outstanding about the dish), and the cod croquettes (we had these last and they were outstanding).
As we were perusing the wine list, the waiter asked if he could be of help and actually brought over wines for us to taste and see which one we'd like. He proceeded to offer us the option of sharing a glass of wine and perhaps trying a different wine for our second glass, which worked out perfectly (the shared pour was also generous in each glass). The waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and did a great job recommending items off the menu.
The dimly lit restaurant, with its fully set, white tablecloth draped tables is perfect for a romantic dinner date. I would not recommend it to children, unless they are of a very adventurous palate variety. It's a great place for a girl's night out or even for business dinners.
The one thing I would single out as a negative is that the restaurant is (unnecessarily) expensive. Most dishes are in the $14-$20+ range and a dinner for two with a couple of glasses of wine will easily cross the $100 threshold.

“Spain arrives in Naples”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Here is an off the beaten track restaurant that is filled with ambiance, great tapas and great wines...not an early crowd place...check it out after 7:30 for sure...Mary and Isabel are both gracious and fun owners...you'll enjoy yourself for sure...

“Quite simply the BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is, quite simply, the best food in Naples. Real chef mastery magic going on here. Best artisinal cheese platter ever. Squash blossoms, shrimp ajiolo, blood sausage, artichokes, lamb, scallops...I have tried nearly everything and it is indeed outstanding. Excellent attentive service as well. Not in a "trendy" pretentious location, but for me, that's a PLUS. If there is a down side, it's that truly exceptional food often comes with a rare price tag - be sure to bring your VISA card, 'cause your gonna need it!! But I promise, it will be worth it.
