Four of us went there for dinner about two weeks ago and were very disappointed. We had been ther twice before and really enjoyed our time there. But this last time it was different. We all receved very small portions and our server seemed totally...uninterested and dismissive when I mentioned this to her. She said that she would mention this to the chef and that was it. At a minimum she should have asked a manger to come speak with us about the issue. Her attitude should have been much better. They were not crowded when this happended, so it was not like she was too busy. All of us wlll probably not return; too many other really good restaurants in Naples.More

With every visit I'm more and more impressed. I cannot get enough of this amazing place! I've been sitting at the bar more often and absolutely love Troy, Athens, Kory, and Greg! ALWAYS making mine and my friends' visit so fantastic! I will continue to...be a regular for this and feel these gentlemen are assets!

Had a wonderful experience for my second visit to this location! My friend and I started our night at 615pm and were welcome to stay the whole shift. We felt awful staying the time frame we did, but Tally made us feel welcome the entire...time. We had EXCELLENT service, delicious food, and a great experience. We'll be back to see Tally, because she made us feel welcome and want to returnMore

We had an outstanding evening her at The Cave. The decor and atmosphere make you feel transformed to a wine cave in Tuscany. It is a fun unique setting with fabulous wine, and a great selection of appetizers and dinner entrees.

Excellent food and wine but VERY noisy! Would definitely recommend but if you have people in your party with hearing difficulties, conversation will be a strain.

The food is outstanding. The chef is from Baleen in La Playa Hotel. Service is great. Both indoor or outdoor dining. Inside is supposed to be like a wine cave reminiscent of Napa Valley. There is also an active bar very close to the dining...so it is very busy and very noisy. Outside is very pleasant with no noise. They have a huge wine list. However if you bring a bottle that they don’t have there is a $25 corkage fee. We brought a bottle of 2010 Bond Pluribus vineyard which they did not have. It’s a great experience and would encourage a visit there. Also, there is a slightly younger crowd inside.More

Small place connected to a wine shop. Cocktails excellent, and hand-made by friendly, knowledgeable bartenders. We have been here for appetizers and drinks several times. Not many tables, but some comfortable couches. Atmosphere great. Food good. Worth a trip to check it out ! Will...be back for dinner in the future.More

The atmosphere and ambiance in this restaurant is tremendous and it makes for a beautiful evening. Upon arrival we were promptly seated. The menú, like many Naples Restaurants is expensive and I thought the portions were small. I had the Wild Mushroom & Truffle Pappardelle...which was excellent. All in all it was a very enjoyable evening and worth a visit!More

The atmosphere was quaint and cozy. The staff was super friendly. The menu had options for a light or full meal. Try the Pinot wine flight, so good.

Been in twice now. First time was tapas and drinks, second was for dinner. Outstanding each time. The service is excellent. Attentive staff, entertaining bar tenders. Food is so unique and delicious. Loved the oysters, best I’ve had outside of Maine. Best snapper I’ve ever...had. The wine selection is top notch. The dessert was excellent. Such a great experience. My new favorite for special occasions. Definitely recommend trying The Cave if you haven’t yet.More

we dined outside here a few days ago and then visited again last night for an after dinner drink right before closing. The food was very good but i was a bit disappointed in the rather small number of entries on the menu. One of...our friends mentioned that you needed to like mushrooms if you eat here because they use mushrooms in many of their dishes Bartenders and wait staff very friendly and competent. Their wine and drink prices are a bit high.. and some of their pours could be much more generous. My wife ordered a Cosmo that was served in the smallest martini glass I've ever seen. We may go back for a late night dessert and after dinner drink simply to enjoy watching the bartenders...More

Ate dinner at the Cave. Delicious Bibb Salad, wine flights, flatbread and cheese plate. The big miss? My husband’s Shortrib Cappeletti. Inedible, stringy, chewy short rib in an otherwise lovely presentation. Our server, Courtney, offered a dessert on the house, but the kitchen needs to...be more vigilant when serving subpar meats. Acoustics made it tough to chat with our guests. Probably won’t return.More

Stopped in here for happy hour. First time in the place. The bartender who served me was wearing a mask appropriately. Another wore it under his nose. However! Another bartender had no mask on at all. Nothing! Not even halfway on. This is not good....He seemed very smug. Two waitresses wearing mask appropriately. Two did not. One had NO mask at all and the other had it under her chin. Nope. No thanks. Will not return. Not a safe environment.More

The entire experience with Zack was excellent from beginning to end!!! We arrived for our Anniversary dinner, to find the menus had a personal message for us on our special day and the rest of dinner did not disappoint. We had the Charcuterie and Cheese...platter, a mixed order of olives and the Bibb salad(my wife is still raving about the green Goddess dressing).They all complemented the wine very well. Then we ordered the Black Grouper and the Short Rib. Both were outstanding...heck, I even liked the fish my wife ordered and I NEVER like fish!!! The short ribs were so tender, they just fell apart. Very tasty!!! For dessert, Zack brought us a complimentary anniversary dessert, which was a Poached pear, with mini cheese cakes and vanilla ice cream...YUMMY!!! SEE YOU NEXT TIME!!! BTW...The ambiance at The Cave is great,love the entire theme and look!!!More
