A local favoriteThis place is a hidden gem. I am a local and didn't know it existed, as it blends in with the Gulf Shore Blvd. neighborhood. The owner Dominick gives you great attention. His food and wine recommendations were great too. We thought the spinach balls were fine, but preferred the mussels as an appetizer. We shared the truffle mushroom pasta and the lasagna...perfect! We will be back!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNaples getawayVery quaint.ziti excellent. Very unusual food list. Lots of wines to pick from. Very quiet.
Dominic the owner very nice & our waiter Andre was superb.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA Secret GemI had never heard about this restaurant until I received a gift certificate. The service was slow in the beginning, but when we mentioned we were headed to a movie, they moved us right along. The veal was great as was the white truffle pasta. Smaller portions, but was perfect for me because I didn't feel the need to stuff my face for the fear of feeling guilty leaving food behind. I will definitely go back!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dining experience in NaplesWhat a hidden gem. The atmosphere is perfect. The food is incredible. And Dominic the owner and chef comes to your table answering any question with personality and wit. Highly recommend this place to anyone.

The lasagna was also a pleasure. The dishes are semi-traditional, but prepared with care, flair, and flavor.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best meal we had in Naples!!The Best meal we had in Naples!!

Food was outstanding!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and intimate quietDominick and staff excelled at providing a most enjoyable evening for our party of 10. The Italian venue was outstanding from appetizer to desert. The atmosphere is quiet and intimate with a restaurant capacity of 40. Our group of snowbirds meets several times in season and this will be an annual return. Reservations are required well in advance. I was looking for great food in a nice atmosphere with a private quiet setting. The Italian in our group raved about Lasagna and my Sole seafood special was superb. The set up of restaurant tables varies from night to night depending on group sizes. The focus is Italian from food to wine, with very limited beer selection. Pricey but worth it. Remember it is your trip to Italy without the passport.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group of six had a greatOur group of six had a great dining experience. It was my husband's birthday and I could not have picked a better place for his celebration. Everyone in the group will be back!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious. WeThe food was delicious. We had the sole from holland with a crab sauce. It was to die for. The staff was attentive but not intrusive. A small and intimate spot.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIn town for a convention andIn town for a convention and looking for something that only the locals would know. Open Table helped me find this special place, tucked away in a fairly nondescript center, but in a lovely part of town and right on the main road by the beach. Old world greeting and food descriptions and although we ordered many different things at our table of 6, everyone said their food was very tasty, as described and satisfying - a table of clean plates! It was quiet enough (although full) that we could talk to the whole table without raised voices. A lovely dinner!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall we really enjoyedOverall we really enjoyed this restaurant. Food was universally very good to excellent. Spinach balls melted in our mouths. House salad dressing was also very tasty as was the bolognese. Slight demerit for taking three requests to get water before our meals. Wine suggestion was good and owner is very attentive. We would like to return in the future. Nice place inside.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe appetizers were incredible(The appetizers were incredible( spinach balls)! I would stick with the pasta dishes. My fish dish was ok.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy surprise to find deliciousHappy surprise to find delicious inventive food, appreciated by 3 diners with vastly different preferences.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDaveWhat a gem! Recommended by a friend, you would drive by this place and miss it but don't be fooled--it is well worth it!
Small and quaint, immpecble service. The spinach balls were (surprisinly) as good as billed, as were mussels. 2nd course was a homemade pasta mushroom dish with truffle oil--I can't really describe how good this tasted!!! Unbelievable. my only disappoitment was my main course, the wild boar. I would not order it again. The flourless chocolate cake was a fantastic way to finish our dining experience!
We saw a party of 4 turned away because they did not have a reservation. My advice: take time to make a reservation because this place is well worth it. We will be back next time in Naples.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNot sure I want to write howNot sure I want to write how good this place is -- it's a tough reservation now, and it'll become impossible to get into....2/28/2013 12:00:00 AMfirst time and going backLoved this restaurant, we went after reading the many positive reviews. The food was excellent, as was the service. We look forward to dining here again.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
