We passed this restaurant a couple of days before our visit. We thought the outlook across the bay was so good that we reserved a window table for Friday's lunch. Nice atmosphere, well appointed, but the food did not quite meet expectations.

I came here in a big group. The owner chose the appetizers for us, which were good and tasty. However, if you your unlucky to select the same ingredient as a main, it was exactly the same dish as the appetizer... Which no one was expecting... The fish portions were very very small and came only with a small side... More

We enjoyed the atmosphere. But if you want a classic yet cozy evening with loved ones, this is a good place. Live piano music, good food - really fresh baby squid and well prepared. Wine list is impressive. Sometimes it is also fun to observe the table next to you who was fanatic looking into the wine list....

This place gave us a special evening on our last night in Naples. I had beautifully cooked Bream followed by panacotta. Our bread basket contained home made breads, presumably made on the premises. The waiters were so friendly and welcoming and I loved their old fashioned manners and kindness. And the view is special too.

We had a romantic and enjoyable evening at the cantinella. It's a cute location with sea view. There are some tables located directly in front of big (open) windows which gives the impression of sitting outside even though there is no terrace. When making a reservation, I suggest asking for one of those tables. The service was very fast and... More

Came in alone on a business trip. Food is incredible and service was attentive but not overbearing. I got the pumpkin risotto and sea bass. They were both amazing! I received a smaller portion of risotto when I asked how big because I wanted the sea bass too. They brought it however didn't inform me it would be the same... More

We had been reading TA and other sources. La Cantinella seemed to fit the bill. The menu looked great. We liked the idea of a Michelin rated place. We were staying nearby so it was a gentle walk. What lovely food. A simple salad came to life. The bean soup, even on a hot day, was superb. A green spaghetti,... More

We stayed nearby and had dinner one evening. The restaurant is old school in style, kind of an odd mix of "italian country". It's comfortable inside, and the staff is friendly. If you are lucky, you might have a view of Vesuvius out the window. The food was excellent, fresh everything. The fish was some of the best we had.... More

Recommended in Michelin so expectations were high. I thought it was highly overrated. The servants were working on their routine. Not friendly at all. Compared to a Trattoria we visites last night this was more than twice as expensive And not nearly as nice. The tirasimu was frozen inside. A definitite no go for us.
