Reviewed April 5, 2014

We passed here during an evening walk and it was so busy we decided to try it the following evening.
Hadn't reserved so waited about 10 minutes in the street, great shared antipasto, one squid and one pasta dish, bottle of house red (3 euro). Great food but rushed by Italian standards and no espresso !
fab if you're in a rush but indigestion if not

“One Of The Best”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

My wife and I found this gem in a Tripadvisor review and decided to check it out. Having a reservation wasn't essential (the locals eat later than the tourists) but was appreciated. We weren't sure what to have, so the owner took over and suggested a number of things. First we were treated to 8-10 small plates of local dishes (grilled peppers, fried zucchini, eggplant), almost all of which were superb. Then we had one of the specials, al dente spaghetti with olive oil, clams and grape tomatoes...excellent. We topped it off with a quarter of a pineapple (not on the menu...we saw someone having it). Probably the best pineapple we've had. Period. With 2 glasses of wine it came to 37.50 Euro. We couldn't believe it. And the locals poured in after 9 p.m., so they know it's the place to go too.

“Loved it so much - ate there twice!”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

We found this restaurant online and it had great reviews, so we thought we'd try it. So glad we did! The food was delicious and we had so much fun there! If you go, plan on making a night of it. The owner of the restaurant is whimsical and entertaining. He'll stop, turn up the music, and proceed to dance with the customers. His son Pasquale had such a nice personality and the waitress Frederica was so sweet and accommodating.

The second night in Italy, we were looking online trying to figure out which great restaurant we were going to go to in Naples for our last night there and decided that everything was so great about this restaurant that we should just eat there again! We were not disappointed. This is a family run restaurant and the food is authentic.

If we were to go back to Naples again, Gobbetto would be our first dining choice!

“Simply Delicious”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Yes, there is a wait because the secrets out! Osteria II Gobbetto is AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS. This place is TOTALLY family owned and has the feel from the moment you step inside. The owner was running around taking orders, talking to guests, dancing and rearranging tables to fit all of the people waiting! He bought my husband and I each a shot of Lemoncello for moving to a different table to accommodate a larger party. The food was absolutely delicious. It had bold, strong and vibrant flavors. I am a picky eater, don't like seafood or meat and there were so many options for me! We ordered 5 meals to try because everything looked so good along with some wine and dessert. There wasn't one thing left on the plates between the two of us. The prices are very reasonable and if you go early enough (right when they open) you won't need to make reservations, even though you will wait for a short time. If you're planning on going later, I do recommend making reservations. Happy eating!
