Description: Nel verde del borgo di Santa Croce, tra i Camaldoli e Chiaiano, c'è il posto ideale per vivere una coinvolgente esperienza enogastronomica al riparo dal brusio della città. Siete da Tavernetta Colauri. Il ristorante gestito dal 2007 dai due cugini Rosario e Salvatore dove, oltre ai piatti della tradizione partenopea, rivisitati negli accostamenti e nelle presentazioni, potrete gustare vini pregiati e assaporare specialità di carni, nazionali e internazionali, servite su pietre ollari e pietre di sale rosa dell’Himalaya. I mattoni in tufo, le travi a vista, gli antichi attrezzi contadini affissi alle pareti, le botti in legno e le luci calde vi avvolgeranno in una ricercata e intima atmosfera adatta ad accogliere coppie, famiglie e amici. Qui tutto è scelto con cura, a partire dalle materie prime, spesso a km zero e appartenenti ai presidi Slow Food (prodotti rari ed eccellenti), con cui lo chef Rosario Morra prepara ogni giorno piatti raffinati e prelibati.

Ok. After finding myself in Naples for an extra night in a poor hotel, I decided to go for a walk. The road I chose wasn’t great but at the end was this hidden jewel. At first there was a large metal gate and a somewhat intimidating guy but with his poor understanding of English and my incomprehensible Italian, I realised that I’d found the place. The rustic interior is welcoming, just watch the glass floor to the cellar. There wasn’t an English menu at first but they soon printed one off an really went out of their way for me. I started with the starter taster. It’s a popular choice at 11€. It should come with a warning about the amount of food! It was tasty and very filling. My main was lamb, steak, rib and sausage. The grilled veg was a little underwhelming but the meat was superb. There was just too much to finish. The food is priced for anyone to afford. If you want Wagu steak they have it. With my beer and water it came to 38€ and I quite willingly let a tip. If you want real food, surrounded by the real people of Naples, EAT HERE. The staff are top as well.

Bellisimo!

Our landlady suggested to eat at this restaurant in the ‘zona ospidalieri’ of Napels. The name suggests a little place but it’s not; it’s a very nice, big, cozy place with a big parking lot. You just give your keys to one of the kind valets and they take care of the rest. So far so good, then, you are warmly welcomed by the owner Salvatore, who kindly and patiently takes time to explain the menu and shows you around through his excellent wine cellar. The food is an experience and so is the wine! One must be a meat lover; the variety of meats went beyond my imagination. Excellent choice of starters, and desserts and dessert wines you can only dream of. Good service and your car awaits you when you go home. A (hidden) gem in Napels.

Ero già stata precedentemente in questo ristorante e la qualità non delude mai. La cena a Tavernetta Colauri diventa una vera e propria esperienza gastronomica infatti il sommelier Gaetano ci ha anche mostrato il caveau dove conservano i vini e tengono le varie degustazioni. Il cibo è altamente di qualità e le carni si distinguono per le particolari tecniche di cottura infatti servono carni su pietra ollare oppure cotte su una lastra di sale rosa. I prezzi sono rapportati all'alta qualità dei cibi,
Insomma, uno dei migliori ristoranti a Napoli.

I already was in this restaurant and I discovered that quality is always amazing. This restaurant is not located in the city center, but in a hidden place in north area of Naples, this makes the atmosphere even more more interesting. The sommelier Gaetano showed us also the ground floor where they have little caveau with many types of amazing wine and they sometimes have some ham-tasting or cheese-tasting. We were eating really tasty and high quality food, especially meat, cooked in a particular way on hot salt stone on our table. I highly recommend Tavernetta Colauri to who wants to try some typical napolitan food and the beast meat.
