If all you require from a restaurant is good food, impeccably presented, then we would not have hesitated in giving it an excellent rating. The food we had here was very, very good with a modern take on traditional Neapolitan cuisine. However, what diminished the experience for us, was the poisonous atmosphere between the chef, the head waiter and the waitress (who served the entire meal with a face that looked as though she had been sucking lemons) The downstairs dining area was small and cramped.
The menu was in English and Italian. The headwaiter spoke quite good English. It is more expensive than other restaurants in the area but this justifiably reflects the higher level of culinary skill.

We ordered a tasting menu and a nice bottle of red wine here. The bill ran about $50. Euros per person, so the range of prices on the Tripadvisor listing is out of date. Nevertheless, we had excellent service and well prepared food. Yes, we would return. There is a second-level room which was cozy.

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we were grateful for the advise. The food here was excellent, with a concentration, of course on seafood. We ordered a whole grilled sea bream for the two of usand our waiter did a very nice job of deboning and serving the beautiful fish at our table.

They also offer a good wine list. Prices are very reasonable.

This is absolutely not recommended. They have a menu for 15 Euro which is a rip off. We were sitting next to a couple who did not go for the menu and their portions were exactly the double in comparison to ours. When I pointed out to the waiter, he said: what are you expecting for 15 Euro? What kind of answer is that????? So please, do not come here. We left our plates on the table and left, without eating. There are many other restaurants in the area that for 15 euro will feed you and satisfy you. Just consider that when I told the owner that I was going to write a bad report on tripadvisor, he said: do not worry, I will personally write 10 good reviews to make sure that your one gets lost. By the way I am Neapolitan.

Ragazzi Italiani, non andate in questo locale. Il menu da 15 euro e' una presa in giro, vi danno porzioni da fame e confrontate con quelle a' la carte, sono esattamente la meta'. Hanno avuto la sfortuna che fossimo seduti accanto ad una coppia che non aveva preso il menu, e che avevano ordinato le stesse pietanze... la differenza era imabarazzante. Nella zona ce ne sono molti altri che con 15 euro vi danno da mangiare sul serio. Quando ho detto al proprietario che avrei scritto una recensione negativa su tripadvisor, lui ha detto che se ne sarebbe scritte 10 da solo, cosi' che questa mia sarebbe andata persa. Sono ridicoli e vi vogliono prendere solo in giro...

We were wandering around Naples when we happened upon this place. We hadn't seen a review but decided to try it anyway. How lucky we were. Naples is known for its food and this place did not disappoint. An added feature was hearing the owner below (we were seated in the upper level) laughing his head off as he was hanging out with some regulars. It really added character!
