Excellent fish and seafood restaurant. Nice wide choice of white wines with great taste. Very nice and pleasant service. Really enjoyed our dinner there.

Staff inattentive. Do not order the langoustine pasta. Just shells to give it flavour (and grit). Fish, ok. “Meat”, ok and salad was fine. Did not justify the price, we came here as everywhere else was busy and this was empty, big mistake. I’d always...told my family it was impossible to have a bad meal in Italy, you live and learn.More

Excellent restaurant with good service, amazing produce and simple but delightful dishes. It’s situated on a cozy classical Italian alleyway. Mostly italian families here. You should book a table in advance and you must try the tomato bruschetta. Sounds like a simple dish but this...one was perfect. We both had pasta and red wine, both really good. Maybe Italian wines can be as good or even better than the french? 😂More

Nice location in Chiaia, on a side street closed to car traffic and away from the heat and bustle of old town. The restaurant was well staffed and the service was prompt and attentive. The seafood was the freshest; the Cozze alla brace appetizer was...delicious - best muscles we ever had. The fritto del golfo main course was very abundant, a nice selection of seafood perfectly prepared. The grilled octopus was tasty but slightly over cooked. Good wIne selection as well. Highly recommended for a seafood dinner.More

The food and service were both exceptional! We enjoyed it all. You can’t go wrong with what you order here, my husband and I both got separate dishes and they were both so good! Be sure to try the homemade limonchello😋

Restaurant is situated in a nice and quiet street with a nice atmosphere. The restaurant is clean and nice to be in. We had a nice table and the level of English was good enough. The trouble started with the wine, I ordered the Pallagrello...Cunto. When the waiter poured me the wine he didn’t show me the label and I had to specifically ask. It wasn’t the Pallagrello Cunto, but the Pallagrello Settimo. It can happen that the wine slightly changes, but say so and don’t act so sneaky. He said it was basicly the same and as I on hollidays always try new wines, i didn’t had the knowledge and decided to accept te wine and avoid ruining the atmosphere. (Google showed that the Cunto is €15,- online and the Settimo €7,-). The wine was nice enough, but i felt a little bit uneasy. We shared a very nice pasta, could have had some more seafood, but was very nice. My partner had the fish of the day with was priced per KG with some grilled vegetables on the side and I had the steak. The fish was very nice and the steak tasted very good. The side of vegetables was very small, see the picture (half of it eaten, no more...). The fish weighed according to the bill 500gram, which I find hard to believe, but I didn’t weigh it, so see the picture to judge for yourself (a small bite is eaten). So we decided not to have a desert or coffee. At the end we paid €82, which is about €15 more than we paid for comparable meals. But the main difference was, we were both still hungry. My steak was sliced, so I didn’t pay attention of it was a complete steak, it can and it might not be. In total we had a pleasent evening (had deserts elsewhere) and the food was good. But i feel very uneasy about the whole experience. I am convinced we paid to much for to little. Walking out hungry is also rare in italy, haven’t had that before. So an uneasy and unsatisfied feeling remains. So be carefull, there are way nicer restaurants for non-italian-speakers.More

I’d booked a table online and when I arrived I was shown to a table inside and then was told that outside was “full” when I requested to change. However the staff then quickly accommodated me. Really beautiful restaurant in a lovely side street. In...my opinion, exactly the kind of dinner setting you’d want in Naples. I had the Tatara (Tatare) and the crab linguine. The tatara was to die for. The wine was amazing.... the crab linguine was good, but be warned, messy. Would recommend.More

You couldn’t find any pasta better than this one around Italy! Very recommended, trust me! The portion is big and it tastes really delicious. It’s worth the money which I only paid €12 for parppadelle al pesto plus €2 for the tax. Mi piace tanto....È molto buonissimo!More
