Very nice place

My husband and I tried this restaurant due to its close proximity to our hotel. We also chose it because it was not filled to capacity and therefore not loud. My husband did not have an appetite so we ordered 1 meal to split. The meal was excellent and plentiful. The pork was tender enough... read more

The Mangrove is a Naples staple! Great food served up by "seasoned and friendly" servers. Their 2 for dinner specials include a bottle of wine. The bread is sinful and plentiful. The best place to dine without breaking the budget. Try the snapper and sirloin!!

All the 5th ave trappings. We dined off the special 2 for 49.95 with a cheap bottle of wine We bought a better bottle of wine. You get the cheap bottle to take home. That being said you can order any entree. I had the Veal dish, the flavor was fine but lacked anything special about it. We had a... More

We made reservations to eat here on our first night on the recommendation and raves of a friend. We had a nice meal but did not think it was remarkable. Service was good. The ambiance was somewhat disappointing.

A week in Naples and this was our best meal. The food was great (we had the Veal with Wild Mushroom and Mango Marsala). The deal was fantastic (2 meals, 2 salads and a bottle of wine for $49.99). The wine was a house Cabernet Sauvignon that was very good. The service was good (we did have to wait a... More

Whenever friends or family visit they want to come here. Its a great value with 2 salads, 2 entree's and a bottle of wine for under $50. Any entrée in the menu is included and they are all delicious. One recommendation I have is the Pecan and pistachio encrusted Snapper. Yum!

What draws you into this restaurant is the $49.99 dinner for two. But don't be fooled, you get what you pay for. The salad was just ok, the portion of their "Signature Snapper" was small and the bottle of Chardonnay was downright awful. The wait staff was very prompt and courteous. With so many other restaurants on 5th Avenue, I... More

Had dinner with the family and the waitress seemed to be on drugs. Could not understand what wine we ordered, very slow service, sirloin meat was very bad, pasta overcocked etc. No - the ones who rate this place high have a very poor reference base.
