We (4 couples) had our best dinner at La Cantine del Sole while spending few days in Naples. Each and every course did taste phantastic, the starter (marinated anchovies), the lamb, the fish of the day and the steak. Excellent wine of the house, both red (aglianico) and white (falanghina) and of course the bottled rose from Mastroberardino. The desserts... More

We went to this restaurant because it was late and we just wanted to go somewhere,. I don't think I've ever gone into a restaurant where someone has given me a flyer before - that's usually a bad sign. However, the Cantina del Sole was a pleasant surprise, a small downstairs room, and more eating space upstairs. It was late,... More

Service was lacking (very slow) and food was sub par. The server spent most of her time in the doorway of the restaraunt chain smoking, and the ventilation drew in the smoke which filled the small eating area.

Never had such a bad experience at a restaurant. Horrible and aggressive people, over cooked food and threatening behaviour. We ordered the mixed grilled fish - which was a sea bass, squid and 6 small prawns. It was €40 which was expensive in comparison to the rest of the menu but we thought it would be good. The fish was... More

We wore looking for a place to have our last dinner in Napoli before we went home and it was a wonderful choice. Don't miss the pasta in lemon, fillet in lemon and Parmesan or the tiramisu- we literally liked the plate!

The restaurant is in the centre of the historic area. Unlike most restaurants which 'specialise' in pizza and little else, this had a much fuller and interesting menu (e.g. see their website). I would guess you would need to book to get a table (we were lucky as we were early for an evening meal). Slightly more expensive than other... More

Dined here a couple of times. Service was excellent and with very polite table staff. Pasta was freshly made and just right. Some of the meat dishes were very tender. All in all, make sure you visit and it beats most of the local pizza restaurants.

This small restaurant in the historical center of Naples was a last minute substitution for us, when our original dinner plans had to change, but we were pleased with the result. The restaurant serves up some fine food, especially pasta dishes. Service was efficient if not especially welcoming. Note that to pay with a credit card one actually has to... More
