“Great on every level”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Ok we've only been here once four of us met my cousin & wife who lives in Naples there. He picked the cafe. And it was one of the best meals and thee best deals we had in town. First sitting at 5 pm have deal that was unbeatable anywhere but especially in Naples. A free bottle of wine for each couple. Good but not great wine. 5 of the 6 of us upgraded our meals. We had coffee shared desert. The bill $ 59 per couple including 20% tip The sea bass was the best I ever had reserve early. Unbeatable

“Consistently Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Dined outside on a quieter weekday evening bringing out of town guests to a place I can count on for good food & good service. Inside can have a vibrant level of noise & for bringing my grandmother, outside was a bit more quiet & serene. Be aware that on beautiful night, in season the sidewalk foot traffic can be heavy, so consider that when choosing to dine al fresco. Our experience outside on a cooler weeknight was lovely. The menu is extensive & varied and the service good. Always can count on the lemon sole as a great dish & our kids like the comfort food favorites; pot roast & mac & cheese. The sea bass here is the best, wine list good and specials a good value. Our food arrived hot always. We return on almost every visit to Naples.

“Great Food & Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

This is my go-to place when I visit Naples. I had the Duet and it was outstanding. I ate with 5 other people and everyone raved. The Grilled shrimp looked fantastic.
Although they were busy the server never missed a beat.
I highly recommend this place.

“Downright good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

This is probably Naples' best spot. Its location is great and the food awesome and reasonably priced. I had duck here and the portion was huge. Usually you just get a breast or confit but not both! Service was good and their key lime is the real thing.

“Good attempt at being on Paris's left bank”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Even the food is typical of the not-bad bistors you'll find in Paris or Nice; and that says a lot. Good menu. Go when you are looking for loud. It has that. And be prepared to hear more from the table next door than from those at your own. But you can't beat the fun.
