Many, many times I've been told that chain restaurants cannot be anywhere near as good as stand alones. This restaurant demolishes that idea. It ticks all the right boxes: good service (even for a large party), a thoughtful menu that uses unexpected ingredients in artful and pleasing ways, well-chosen wines, and a energetic atmosphere.

A particular aspect I enjoyed was the way classic dishes like a chicken taco or a reuben sandwich were pulled apart and re-imagined using atypical ingredients. In the case of the later an asian-style slaw is substituted for saurkraut and the sliced meat with a cut of fish. Or the way tropical foods like yuca and plantain find themselves presented in ways that are suited to a North American palate. Very fresh thinking with tasty results and served at a reasonable price, particularly for lunchtime diners.

I wish all chains were this good.

Live music, open views of the kitchen, great cocktails, good food. Need I say more? You'll need to book though it's busy but if you don't a seat at the bar over looking the kitchen is still good.

We had very good service and the food was excellent . We even went back for dinner. Not cheap but you are in Naples. A bit noisy but manageable .

Right there in old naples, the nicest place you will find. Great patio seating, fab food and excellent wines. Live music sets the mood for a fun night in naples. Service is good and the atmosphere is relaxed and posh at the same time. We always come back here when in naples.
