This was such a surprise from my husband for our anniversary dinner. Our server, Adriano, whom I HIGHLY recommend was amazing!! While I asked a lot of questions about the different wines he explained them all and the different parts of the appetizers as well. He was very thoughtful in asking to take our picture to capture the perfect evening.... More

Perfect place to grab a nice dinner on the beach. We walked from the Ritz. Bit of a walk, but manageable. Food was very good. Pricey, but consistent with the area and location. We ate outside and the atmosphere was just what we were looking for dinner. Great waiter. Good bourbon selection. Don't hesitate.

From the efficient valet parking, to the fabulous service staff to the wonderful food --this was a great experience from start to finish. We were seated on the porch hoping for a sunset but clouds were heavy. Our wait staff was headed by Adriano and he may be the best waiter in Naples. The menu covers seafood, meat, pasta and... More

Not what we expected. Sat outside, great ambiance but not romantic nor cozy seating. Waitress seemed bored and was not attentive. We both got the Chef's special, not worth the price. Taste was ok, fish was cooked perfectly, but dishes came out lukewarm, not hot, like the dishes were already prepared and waiting. I ordered vodka tonic - tasted soapy... More
