Very nice bar, excellant service, congenial atmosphere, and just good old fashion fun. Highly recommend the casual cocktail at the bar.

This is the place to go (it is gone now) for a fine dinner with recipes from the family. The father is the chef, the mother is the pastry chef and the two sons are the waiters, greeters and will assist you in your selections. Unfortunately their place has been torn down, and hopefully soon they will announce a new... More

We love this place. Only get down a couple times a year, and it's gone! Does anyone know where they relocated? Service is great and so is the food. Coming down soon and really need to find out if they relocated somewhere. Sure hop so. Bob and Aracely

Had a table full of tapas to try as much as we could first time there. Enjoyed, Waiting to go back. Empanadas were great. Next time out my wife is looking forward to the paella. A little more expensive then the other places offering the early bird specials with liquor but great tapas and homemade pastries. Will visit again soon

Not the best cuisine in town, but great location. More recommended for snacking than proper lunching/dinning.

Cozy little restaurant in the heart of Naples. Very nice wait-staff and the tapas dishes we ordered were perfect to share. Sangria was good. Very enjoyable dinner.

Stopped at this place for tapas and drinks one evening. The waiter was very friendly and provided great service. We had a multiple selection of tapas, drinks, and coffee. The place is well located. The area is lively at night and beautiful. The prices are also fair. Recommended!

I really wanted to like this restaurant as I'm a big tapas fan but I just couldn't. We visited on a weekday evening and the restaurant was half full; despite this our food took ages to arrive and we'd completely finished one tapas dish before another arrived. All five dishes arrived in single file this way. Also, the quality (and... More

This small, family owned restaurant is being forced to move from their Fifth Avenue location in Naples next May. Meanwhile, you can enjoy their quiet ambiance and wonderful food. From a perfect house salad, crisp lettuce, excellent vinaigrette, through a flavorful entree, and on to a freshly prepared pastry, every single mouthful is just right. Unpretentious, warm staff. You will... More
