We've had consistently good meals in Naples (with just one exception), and Osterial della Mattonella was distinctive for its homey feel. It's on an out of the way street that you're not likely to run across by accident. It's very small -- eight tables at most -- and nicely decorated, but not fancy. My wife and I each had a... More

A small friendly family run restaurant with excellent food and good inexpensive local wine available. Popular with locals and welcoming to tourists.

If we could go back to just one place we ate at in Naples this would be the one. Up a hill and on a backstreet but you have to find it - and yes the door is locked from the inside so you have to attract someones attention to be let in. Inside the is a cosy dining room... More

I dined two occasions: dinner and lunch within a week. The same menu was used for both lunch and dinner. The portions were rather smaller for a typical osteria. When I went back for lunch, I noticed there was a set of salt and pepper shaker on the table, in which wasn't when dined for dinner. A traditional pasta alla... More

Incredible place of an outstanding typical Neapolitan beauty !!!!! Does it comes out from a film???? The decorations is old dated, maybe from the '40 ???? Wonderful ! And the food goes, obviously, together: exceptional very local, very typical, very Neapolitan cuisine !!!!!! A must: the baccala alla carrettiera, polpette in sugo, ragu', genovese...... mmmmhhhhhhh, yesssss !!!!!!!!

We really like the atmosphere of the restaurant and also enjoyed the food especially the sausages were really good. It is not spectacular but of for the price. And it is Napoli after all

Knock on the door to be let in. The environment was authentic, with a vibrant energy from each table filled with local family's and groups of friends. The food was unremarkable, but we only ordered meatballs, lentil soup, and mixed vegetables. The service was fine.

Satisfying Neapolitan food, but we’re not sure why the “welcoming atmosphere” or the “lady who works the front of the house” get such raves from other TripAdvisor reviewers– we felt abandoned for most of our meal. I guess we went on an off-night.
