A fellow American recommended La Sacrestia shortly after I moved to Napoli. Over 2 years later, Valentine's Day with a date finally gave me a chance to visit. I learned I should be careful listening to recommendations about Neapolitan restaurants from fellow Americans.
The food would be average for a tired Italian-American place living on a faded reputation. But this is Naples, where you can have a legendary meal for half the price! Dinner was 90 euro for 2 people, with no wine! (My date does not drink). The service was very friendly, but the dishes reached for brilliance and always fell short: the gnocchi con pesce spada was "ok", the "ricotta-zucchine mousse" was reused in two different antipasti, and the orata in cartoccio was flat: like high-quality canned tuna in a burrito wrapper. The semifreddo dessert (important on Valentine's Day!) can be beaten by most any Neapolitan gelateria. You could sum up by commenting about the absolutely stunning view of the bay of Naples from this location, which you see as you walk up to the restaurant -- and which cannot be seen from any table! Build some windows in the wall so diners can see the view, and THEN you can charge this kind of money for average food! (I think they may have a summer terrazzo, so you can try visiting then for a view...but you won't see me!)
