“Historic Cafe in Naples”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

I went to this cafe because of its history. It is located on a busy corner close to streets with lots of shops. It is located nearby the Royal Palace is a nice place to take a break.

“Worst sandwich ever!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Lunch, Caprese salad was nearly edible but my wife's sandwich was laughable, just rubbish! No ham, no taste and no concern! Good location though

“Overpriced and poor service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Stopped here for a quick coffee when exploring Naples, the setting next to the Piazza del Plebiscito and Royal Palace is very nice, although the ambiance is somewhat diminished by the busy road at the front.

The pastry my girlfriend had was, according to her, very nice, but the service was terrible, not just because it took too long but because the waiter bordered on being rude. And, having earlier in the day had a very nice lunch in friendly family-run restaurant in the Spanish quarter for a good price, the cost of our two drinks and one pastry was nearly half of that, so very overpriced in my view.

“Beautiful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Not so much a caffe, as an experience. The surroundings are gorgeous & the service immaculate.
Very very busy, well worth it.

“Cocktails on the Piazza Regale”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Like a Parisian café only in Naples. Great for cocktails in style with accompanying sandwiches, etc. and people watching. The drinks are ample, they do know how to build a martini! Great pastry, ice cream as well, if that's what you desire.
