“Good food, terrible service”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

Whilst the food was nice, we were enticed by the offer of a free bottle of wine (which we received) however, the waiter was very rude and pushy in trying to sell us additional food we didn't want. There was a bad atmosphere throughout the meal and we had to put down what we thought the bill would be as they did not bring the bill despite being asked 3 times. Wish we had checked the reviews before dining. But check out Caffetteria Marsal (opposite) for a friendly pre/post dinner drink

“Watch your bill!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We ate there and had some dinner. I recommend other places...

- The view is ok. It looks onto a small marina instead of the port.
- The food is average. Ok pizza... ok pasta... nothing special.
- Service is below average.

But the most important advice if you go here:

- WATCH YOUR BILL for service charges, additional drinks you did not order, etc. We had both on our bill. For example, we had two bottles of the same wine... one was charged at 15 euro and one was charged at 20 euro.

- Tip begging waiters!

“Seems to be in a "traditional Naples place"”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Good service, not so expensive (but neither cheap...), good food.
Borgo Marinaro - Castel dell'Ovo area is nice and now Via Partenope and Via Caracciolo is PEDESTRIAN ONLY area as well.

I suggest to try Ciro for a relaxed dinner...

“Great food & views”
Reviewed June 5, 2012 via mobile

My group of 9 had 2 excellent meals. Service was very attentive because they know I tip well. When you go to this restaurant be friendly, say ciao, talk to the waiters, they are very friendly & enjoy to mingle with the customers. They work for tips like the states so don't be cheap !
All the food is excellent, go with the specials, it's the freshest

“Portside restaurant”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

Not cheap but definitely good, Ciro is no second to La Bersagliera and Zi Teresa. Order seafood, a neopolitan specialty after pizza.
