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.

The concierge at our hotel recommended LaCantinella for our 1 night in Naples. We began the evening with a Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Alle Mura 2008. It was smooth and velvety. The seafood salad was to be on a bed of greens but was not but it was excellent the way it was - warm and tender. My husband and... More

We booked a table early (first night & shattered!) the restaurant had just opened and we were the only diners. Staff were very attentive and this excellent service continued throughout our meal even when the restaurant was full later. Lovely atmosphere and all of the food and drink was delicious! Although the restaurant was full towards the end of our... More

Wow this is the best meal we had in Napoli. They used good quality ingredients in a very fine way, the pasta with anchovies as divine and the octopus was superb. Great service and wine!

I and my 2 friends visited this lovely restaurant earlier this month. We weren't sure what to expect and to be honest, when we walked in we weren't overly impressed by the decor or the ambient piano music. But we all ordered the Angelo set menu which at €65 euros we thought was excellent value, especially if you are a... More

What an evening we enjoyed here. Service was splendid and the food matched up! We were guided by the waiter on wine and an excellent choice he made. More expensive than others available but worth it for ambience, food quality and the view. You wont remember the price only the top evening you had. Will visit again.

Dined here on Oct 8.Asked our hotel for a restaurant close by that served great food and more importantly provided a spacious table instead of those wretched small Trattoria type tables where you can virtually eat off your neighbours plate. Half an hour later we were in La Cantinella. Wonderful table beside open window with view of bay.We ordered the... More

A lovely 4 course meal although the pasta was hugely disappointing . The veal was superb as was the vino- overall well worth a visit!
