Came to dinner expecting more due to the reviews. Sat outside under a heater which was nice. Good service. Sauce for pasta tasted like it came out of a jar. Asked for medium cooked steak and got a rare. Mussels were good but not the best I've had. Alberto's across the street had much better food!!! Same price. I will... More

Had the early dinner. Great tasty Italian food! I had the salmon and my husband had the wild boar bolonase. Both were excellent. Cab sauv wine very good. Our server, William was super and looked after us very well! Highly recommended for the early dinner. Price was under $40 for a bottle of wine and 2 entrees!

Only open for dinner. Seating inside or on the sidewalk. Excellent service. My wife and I split an appetizer and an order of angel hair pasta. The food was delicious. The ambiance was classy. Extensive wine list, an I'm an enophile. Some wines are available by the glass. I had a glass of a 2012 California red zinfandel. It was... More

We opted to have several small points and cocktails at the bar. Excellent appetizer menu. I you have Peggy as a barmaid, you will have attentive and informative service! We had the mussels, squash ravioli, meatballs, penne with shrimp-all excellent. Also, must note that the gimlets were shaken to perfection! Really, with the thinnest layer of ice crystals.

Some of the best food I have eaten. Very classy place. Wide assortment of wines from Italy and worldwide. Pasta, soups, ravioli, short ribs, wonderful salads, pastas, lasagne, veal, grouper, salmon, chicken limone. Everything just melts in your mouth. Service was excellent. Our server, Amanda E couldn't have been nicer. First time dinning in Naples and we will be back.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere; great food, beautifully presented; attentive wait staff. Not inexpensive, but in line with restaurants in the area. A restaurant we love to bring our visiting guests to. Worth the trip. The food is excellent.
