We had a fabulous Monday evening in this classy restaurant which is superbly run by the father and son owners and other very professional waiters . We booked this place after reading the Michelin guide recommendation and reading tripadvisor reviews and were delighted with everything. The food was 1st class , the poached octopus, penne pasta , suckling pig and... More

The restaurant is located slightly aside from popular touristic routes, something like 300 meters away from fortress entrance. There is no outdoor terrace, as the day was not cold that did not really matter. We were lucky to get the table by the window and had a perfect view on the harbor. Everything was positive starting from the interior with... More

We visited Cantinella during a very quiet lunch service, so we had the full attention of the only waiter on duty - more about him later. The restaurant itself is easy to find, located on the seafront and it has a pleasant if eclectic interior. The table we were allocated could not have been better, right next to a large... More

Just had a birthday lunch for my better half - fantastico! Really enjoyed every course of the meal. The complimentary octopus appetiser was lovely, the recommended local Calabrian red wine was delicious, the service was smooth, but not too intrusive and the Soufflé for dessert was just out of this world. I can not understand why their rating is not... More

I had come to Naples to visit a friend who was working one night and I was on my own. Found this gem of a restaurant near my hotel and dined alone. Felt totally at ease eating alone, the waiting staff looked after me and the service was impeccable. Loved my mushroom risotto and prosecco. Totally recommend this restaurant.

Our family of four ordered 1 antipasto, 2 primi, and 2 secondi, a 1/2 bottle of wine, 4 bottles of water, 1 slice of pineapple, and 1 mixed dessert plate to share. Amount: €168, including a €20 cover. It should have been more like €100-110 max. A rip-off. A very good antipasto of millefoglie of sliced meat, and a delicious... More

We passed this restaurant a couple of days before our visit. We thought the outlook across the bay was so good that we reserved a window table for Friday's lunch. Nice atmosphere, well appointed, but the food did not quite meet expectations.

I came here in a big group. The owner chose the appetizers for us, which were good and tasty. However, if you your unlucky to select the same ingredient as a main, it was exactly the same dish as the appetizer... Which no one was expecting... The fish portions were very very small and came only with a small side... More

We enjoyed the atmosphere. But if you want a classic yet cozy evening with loved ones, this is a good place. Live piano music, good food - really fresh baby squid and well prepared. Wine list is impressive. Sometimes it is also fun to observe the table next to you who was fanatic looking into the wine list....
