I cannot write a real Review because this program will censure me. I Believe the location and the view are fantastic, but the food experience and the service could be improved a great deal.

We stayed to Napoli for one day and when we asked at the hotel for a nice restaurant to have dinner we were recommended la fenistella. After looking at TripAdvisor I saw it had good critics so we decided to give it a try. The restaurant had a nice terrace overlooking the sea, the service was OK, but when the time came to taste the "fisherman's spaghetti" and the octopus salad I felt as if I was eating in a typical restaurant for tourists (although many locals were eating there). Anyway, I was hoping to have a nice dinner in one of these famous Napoli cuisine restaurants but unfortunately this was not the case at La Fenistella...don't try it, you will be disappointed (unless you are Looking only for the sea view). I wonder how this restaurant has got good critics so far.

gentile Dimitris x,
la sua recensione ci lascia molto sorpresi, il nostro locale punta da sempre sulla qualità delle materie prime, ed è anche per questo motivo che ci siamo nel tempo guadagnati tante critiche positive .....
Probabilmente arrivando dalla Grecia immaginava di trovare una cucina diversa viste le sue richieste ( lasagna; bolognese) ; ci creda non abbiamo nulla di turistico.
La invitiamo a ritornare per farla ricredere sulla qualita della nostra struttura.
grazie

We went to 'A Fenestella on the recommendation of someone who knows the area well. The website makes the restaurant appear very inviting. If you were to come just for the view, this would be a great place to come during daylight hours. Unfortunately, it was dark when we arrived.

As we entered the restaurant, we noticed there was no one else there. Not a good sign! During the two hours we were at 'A Fenestella, not a single soul came in to eat. The place smelled like my Grandmother's house, and that's not exactly indicative of a vibrant, happening kind of place.

The food was equally unimpressive. We tried many dishes (our group was pretty large) and I wouldn't order any of them again. I can't help but wonder if the food was bad because it had been waiting for several days in the kitchen. No customers, no food gets served. Because no one else was in the restaurant, we expected good service from the four waiters who were hanging around. Unfortunately, they were too busy leaning against the wall to refill water and wine glasses, or to do much else, for that matter.

Don't bother with this place!
