This was just what we were looking for. Authentic, unpretentious, family cooking! I think that we might have been the only foreigners.

Very well cooked local food, excellent service by well dressed waiters. Also the furniture and table cloths were contributing to the atmosphere. the restaurant is located in a calm section of the square.

We had one enjoyable meal here with excellent service, and so went back another night and the service was terrible (although they did sort things out). But that can happen, so let's review the good night. Pleasant old-fashioned restaurant with small rooms with what looked...like baffles on the walls to reduce the sound. No muzak. Many of the waiters looking as if they had worked there for years. Service a bit too hectic and forgot my side order on the good night. Food good (salmon, octopus) and wine list with plenty of local bottles.More

Was taken here for my birthday dinner tonight on our last night in Naples. The service was really great with super friendly staff. The eggplant parmesan was fantastic and the Ziti Genovese was to die for! This place is well worth the visit!

Ristoranteal53 is an experience I'll never forget. While on my 3 day stay in Naples, my partner and I happened to come across this restaurant near our stay! The seafood options caught our pescararian eyes. I had the salmon steak and my partner had the...spaghetti with muscles the first night! Yes, we came back for a second time because not only was the food tasty but the people were friendly, loud and welcoming! It felt like a family dinner, a real Italian experience! I had a seafood risotto the second time and I have no regrets. Francesco looked after us, he remembered us from the first night and ensured to reserve us a special table for the second night! Ask for Francesco, he will ensure your night is one to remember! Come hungry and you'll leave happy! Great restaurant for a taste of Napoli!!More

Ok so, first thing’s first! Antipasto? Amazing. We’ve had the mussels the first time we came and the second time, we had bruschetta al pomodoro e camerelle fritte (bruschetta and calamari) and it was superb! I hope you catch that we came here twice! The...waiters are friendly and Francesco is the best. He’s sweet, he walks around checking each and every individual table to ensure everything is all and well with each customer. For primo (first meal), we’ve had the spaghetti con cozze (spaghetti with mussels) and risotto… For secondo (second meal), we’ve had the salmone alla griglia (grilled salmon steak). Everything was up to par! The tiramisu is to die for apparently since it’s always finished by time I get here but the chocolate cake (il torta al cioccolato) is delicious as well. I strongly recommend the vino con porcoche - it’s the house wine with sliced peaches. It’s perfectly delectable! Always have a little limoncello as well, it makes everything better. I say this place is family because I managed to run in here during siesta to ask for a little olive oil for personal reasons and Francesco happily obliged. Trust me, this is a place worth visiting. Try everything once, but if it’s nice then try it twice!More

Excellent place to taste the real and tasty Neapolitan cooking, we took calamaretti and pasta di mare. Homemade and delicious. We went two nights of our 3 journey in Naples. We’d like to thanks Francesco for the marvellous and kind service. Lieu incontournable à Naples...sur la animée Place Dante.More

We had a terrible experience. Food was OK (not special at all) , but the service was absolutely horrible. The older waiter was serving our table and he was very pissed off already in the beginning. He was rude when taking order. When I wanted...to see dessert menu later, he said with annoyed face "wait for 5 minutes, relax". I thought he was joking. But no. He never showed up with the menu. I asked another waiter for the bill. Waited for 15 minutes, asked again and the bíll never came. Had to go to cashier to pay . I am really surprised this place gets any good reviews.More

If in Naples you must give Al 53 a go. From the quick service and the amazing staff, to the variety of options making it very inclusive to all. As someone who doesn’t speak much Italian the staff were amazing with the language barrier and...we’re also very chatty, we loved hearing about the local celebrity Maradona and about his time in our home country the uk really making us feel at home! Over all definitely one of the best restaurants in Naples and would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone who stops by Naples.More

On our last night in Naples we happened across this lovely restaurant. All the food we ordered came quickly and to a high standard. Waiting staff were really friendly and helpful despite the language barrier. A waiter in particular interacted a lot with us discussing...the time he spent in the UK making us feel very welcome. Would highly reccomend if in the area!More
