“Hilarious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2015

We met a lovely young woman on the train from Rome, who had studied in Naples. She recommended that we try da Nennella, so we did on our first night. We got there at 7.30 and although half the tables tables were already full we were seated quickly. We ordered the set price 12 euros menu of pasta, salad, grilled salmon and my husband had crumbed veal. The food was average but the experience of singing, shouting, rumba dancing waiters was crazy fun. Go for the experience.

“A must-try in Naples!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2015 via mobile

A must-try in Naples! A really unique experience. Be prepared to live a genuine, fast, filling and funny experience in the heart of Spanish district. Queue is quick and the service quicker. Food extremely fast delivered and truly genuine in an environment where chaos is king! The place is a very hood value for money but you must be generous with tips ("Mazzetta" or "Mancia" in Italian).

“Great food, tiny price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2015

Every Neapolitan I mentioned it to knew it and every one of them said I would eat well. Amazingly, for 12 euro I ate supremely well! The restaurant is noisy, crowded and chaotic, but it's worth the pain. I only wish I could go back another 15 times so I could sample more widely.
I ate a pasta dish they are known for which is several varieties of pasta served with potato and provala cheese. I wasn't sure if it was soup or pasta but it was so good, who cares? Alici fritte is the tiny fresh anchovy lightly floured and fried. It's a true treasure you don't find away from the Mediterranean zone. Escarole cooked with olives and capers was delicious. Water and wine are included in the menu. Fruit is brought in a bowl as big as a tub for your selection. Coffee is served outside where you line up to pay.
In a city filled with food choices, this is a great choice. Like the old fashioned trattoria one price brings it all. You can't negotiate for a single course, you just eat what you want at the price of 12 euro for four or 15 euro for five courses. Go on. You'll be glad you did.

“If you dont visit this place, you haven't lived”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2015 via mobile

Words cannot describe what you will experience by visiting this trattoria. The food is out of this world, you wont eat better than this anywhere in Italy. The food is so fresh and authentic.
The wine is unbelievable and when you drink their Limoncello, you feel a lemon explosion in your mouth!
The staff sings shouts and is loud because this is Naples and if you dont like the unquestionably unique buzz of this restaurant then it means you are dead.
Don't bother with any other places in Naples, this is the place!

“Noisy but good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2015

This restaurant is recommended in guidebooks - and also by locals. It's very popular. When we got there about 8:30, it was already quite busy, we got a table inside – too chilly outside, even though it was enclosed with plastic and had a heater. The menu’s one price and the wine comes in labelless bottles. The waiters are noisy, shouting at each other, and there are a lot of them. The clientele’s noisy too, and, when they play music, that’s loud. Definitely not the place for a quiet, romantic dinner. The food was simple, good and cheap. When we left, the street was packed with people waiting to get in.
