I'm gonna be brutal and straight to the point, but I will explain: I would not advise you to go there if you want to have a great time, a memorable experience. Food is good, but this is at least what we can expect from a Michelin-starred restaurant isn't it? View on the port is nice. But service is so... More

We had dinner here, the food was oke, not all to special but just good Italian food. Staff was not very friendly at all. No wine tasting menu with the courses. They tried to push all the courses very quickly true. For a Michellin star restaurant I guess there are better options.

This restaurant grouped all of the english speaking patrons outside in the same section and all the native Italians were seated inside, just an observation.

The multi-course dinner was beautifully presented and filling, though not ultimately spectacular. Service was friendly and helpful. The experience was tainted by a seating misadventure. We stayed in a suite at the Romeo hotel, and the front desk clerk made a reservation for window-front seating at Il Comandante.

A classic example of style over substance, Il Comandante left me feeling a bit hollow, and how it qualified for a Michelin star is beyond me. The food was pretty good, but not worthy of the price tag. It was the more middle-of-the-road dishes that were the best: my eel linguine was excellent, as was my wife's risotto, but the... More

Il Comandante is a gourmet restaurant awarded 1 Michelin Star since 2012.

Il Comandante was the title given to Achille Lauro. And our restaurant was his palace, the historical site of Lauro's naval fleet.

We like to imagine this place as the ship's bridge from where one dominates the bay of Naples, the port, the ships that arrive and depart in a never still landscape, never identical.

Our kitchen evokes the charm of a trip: the great muse is the Mediterranean "mare nostrum", a melting pot of people and cultures tastes and traditions, where our Chef Salvatore Bianco elaborates the ingredients with respect and passion.

Enjoy the experience.
