Attentive staff, good food.
Attentive staff, good food.
One thing to note; very pricey.
Granted in a prime spot on 5th ave, but is a $5 charge for swapping out polenta for risotto on a veal entree already priced at $34 really warranted?

The meals and service were above expectation and showed an imaginative approach with ingredients. Vergina is a relative bargain in Naples for above the norm dining.

3 of the 4 of us had a great meal. my wife's chicken was way too spicy....even I could not eat it. She sent it back and the new meal came back fine. The servers fawned all over her so she didn't feel too bad sending it back.

Enjoyable evening with son, wife, baby and our 22 year old daughter. Food was good and service was quick enough that the baby was OK. We felt comfortable with the baby.

Wonderful dining experience...
We had a fantastic meal here on a busy Friday night. The food was excellent, service was fast and friendly, wine list and cocktails were top notch! I highly recommend Vergina in Naples.

Excellent place to have a
Excellent place to have a dinner at the heart of downtown Naples . Great food and very good service. My husband had the branzino and I had the lamb ragu and we shared the octopus starter . For sure we will be back a few more times before we have to go back north.

Great atmoshere and food. We dined here after reading other reviews and we couldn't be more pleased with the choice. We have eaten in many fine restaurants and are tough critics; this is one of the best meals we have had. Everything we had from appetizers to dessert was made to perfection, and the staff is extremely knowledgeable & attentive. Although it was a busy weekend night, they were still able to deliver our courses in a timely manner. One can tell that the people here are passionate about food.

Seafood salad was generous
Seafood salad was generous and outstanding. Steak was excellent. Veal scallopini was a bit disappointing - too much brown sauce. Server was attentive but not intrusive. Lots of children dining the evening our group was there, making the atmosphere a bit boisterous. Overall, this was a good experience and we'll be back.

What a Difference..
Ive Been to Verginas in the past, It was ok. I was told about the managment changes and the arrival of a new Chef. Wow, what a difference. Excellent dishes, very tasty. The manager was friendly and professional.I highly recommend anyone to give Verginas a try...

Thanks Chef Marco for perf. 1stDate
Went on a first date and requested a romantic table. When I approached the host and said who I was, I was told they reserved 2 of their "most romantic tables"; one being outside, the other inside. we opted for outside and were escorted to a table seated farther from the others, near the walkway on Fifth Avenue (in downtown Naples). Their geographic location is one of the best. We ordered a bottle of white and enjoyed the ambience while discussing philosophies on life. Dinner was incredible! (I suggest anything with their TRUFFLES). 8 o'clock seating w/ a midnight exit. It couldn't have gone any better! Will definitely start going here once/month (@ minimum)! Live music & huge crowd dancing were noticed upon exit inside.
4/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was our11th. Anniversary. We were seated promptly at a nice front row out side table. We had a bit of a problem communicating with our server. Had to ask on two occasions for bread and ice.

How wonderful to find Chef
How wonderful to find Chef Marco, I have missed His cooking. I fiirst met Him on Sanibel, Only to find out that Naples took Him from us.
He is a "GEM", His food is clean and very fresh. I love His homemade "Lobster Ravioli" to die for!!!!!
Naples is very lucky to have Him.

Had a lovely dinner on a Sunday night. We have dined there before, and I can say that it is consistently wonderful! We were pleasantly surprised by some new menu additions and I jumped at the opportunity to try some of them. We started with the bruschettone and Shrimp Cocktail. Both were fresh and tasty, but the Shrimp really stood out! The lamb ribs were phenomenal; succulent, flavourful, fall off the bone good. My husband's Cornish Hen was equally unbelievably delicious. Keep up the good work Vergina! We'll return soon...
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my fifth trip to Vergina and the fourth meal. I've tried a different dish every time and I have never been disappointed. Not only is the food delicious, the wait staff is top notch. Very professional yet friendly and accommodating. I suggest this spot to everyone I know visiting Naples. I also have to mention the entertainment at the bar. The singer was fabulous! He just made you want to get up and dance. Vergina is definitely my "go to" stop in Naples.
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every time we visit Naples, Vergina is a must stop. Food, service and ambience is perfect. Thank you for not disappointing us.
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Will be back
We went to Vergina's on the dinner'-theater special with Naples Players. We didn't know what to expect with a special menu but what we got was great. I started with a brussel sprout appetizer they had on the online menu - they didn't have it on the menu anymore but they said they could make it for me. They were great. For dinner I had the lingune pescatore and my husband had the bolognese, both were very tasty. Dessert I got the creme brulee and my husband got the key lime pie, I have to say I favored the key lime pie of the two. Overall, an excellent dinner, with excellent service for a very reasonable price.

Great food worth delayed service
Our entrees were great! Service was delayed due to the rush right before a play at the theater. We sat inside, but our booth was right by the door to the patio which is left open so it was hot and humid (July in Naples). We had salmon and linguini pescatore for dinner AWESOME and creme brûlée for dessert. My creme brûlée was very runny..mom's was great. Espresso came after dessert was gone.
Overall it was a good experience. Location is awesome and I would recommend Vergina to everyone.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
relaxing and fun
We had a blast at Vergena. It is directly across from Sugden Theatre on 5th. Food was awesome and service was tops.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food at Vergina was beyond my expectations. My party ordered 3 appetizers which we shared and every one was excellent. We each had a different pasta entrée and it was difficult to say which was the best. The pasta was properly cooked al dente and the sauces on the Maloreddus and Paccheri were exceptional.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is always a great experience
It is always a great experience at this restaurant. I would recommend to anyone.....
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been in before, and Vergina has become our favorite spot in Naples. Whether it's a delicious and quick lunch, a special dinner, or just late night drinks and music, Vergina never disappoints. Ahi tuna was seared to perfection with a yummy pistachio crust and buffalo cheese cream sauce. Grilled calamari was super fresh, tender and perfectly seasoned. We even received a complimentary lemoncello, what great attention to their guests!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service; quality Italian
We enjoyed a lovely lunch here, sharing several appetizers, soup and salad. All were beautifully presented with excellent quality ingredients. Attentive, friendly service. We'd certainly go back for dinner.
8/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
We've dined at Vergina for lunch several times and found the food and service to be average. This is our 1st dinner and based upon this experience, we'd definitely return. The dinner party had a broad variety from the extensive menu and all dishes received excellent reviews. Service was attentive without being overpowering and we chose to dine outside.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another excellent dining experience
As we expected our meal was excellent and the service by Angela G. Also excellent, even after we decided to order the early dining special, which was not the reason for electing to dine there. We will definitely return.

Tourist alone in Naples
Ate outside so I could people watch. Sunday evening and it was not overly busy. Wait staff attentive.
Spinach salad was fine. For the entrée, I ordered the Ravioli stuffed with Pear and Cheese topped with a walnuts and sage sauce. The server tried to steer me away from it by deeming it too sweet; however, it was very tasty. Nothing on the desert menu appealed to me so I ordered Irish coffee which was awful (they decided to make it Irish by adding something green coloring which turned out to also be mint flavored - yuck).

Good food ...good music
Everything was wonderful for our anniversary celebration ...the food ..the bar and music afterwards...one disappointment ...although while booking my reservation through open table I mentioned it was our anniversary in the notes. No one seemed to know or care...just a little thing....
10/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
It was a wonderful experience--the food the atmosphere, the music, the dancing. The staff was helpful and friendly. It was special when the manager or owner came over and welcomed us, calling us by name. As you know we had made our reservation on line. We will be back and we will be telling all our friends.
10/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
One of our favorites!
We love this restaurant so much we had our daughter's rehearsal dinner here. They have fabulous food and accomodate your every request. They are very busy but worth the wait if you don't make a reservation.
10/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always a treat!
My bride and I dine at Vergina and attend the Sugden theater several times a year, and the restaurant never disappoints! Good food, attentive service, and ideal "people watching" as you sit on fifth avenue ... what more could you want! I would heartily recommend dining at Vergina anytime the opportunity presents itself!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food, especially the Bronzino in Crust of Roasted Tomatoes. Steak was the best we ever had. Nice atmosphere and service was top notch. Prices were in line with the quality, and zone. Definitely will return.
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Wonderful food and great ambience!
The Bruschettone is a must! Fresh tomatoes, capers, kalamata olives and fresh basil perfumed with EVO and served with the most delicious toast make this just a delight to start your meal. Then we had the branzino in crosta . The combination of the branzino with Sicilian olives, leeks and green grapes was just delicious and so flavorful. WOW! My table mates had the salmon and the grouper and all raved about their dishes. Plus sitting outside and people watching was just so much fun. It is right in the center of 5th Avenue, a great location. There is inside seating but sitting outside was a real treat . Our server Michael could not have been nicer. We will be back. See my pictures to judge for yourself what wonderful food Vergina offers.

Exceptional Service - Great Food
We had a perfect early evening dinner at Vergina. The entire staff from the hostess to the waiter to the food runners were very friendly yet professional. The food was very flavorful and nicely presented. The restaurant has a beautiful, upscale decor overlooking the square in front of the Sugden Theater. We had our waiter take a picture of us with all the Christmas lights in the background. Perfect!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
I suggested Vergina to friends who vacation in Naples twice a year, but had never visited the restaurant. I had not visited the restaurant in a year and my husband and I were fond of their happy hour. An incentive to visiting Vergina was a promotion they had sent by email. The waitress was unfamiliar with the promotion, but checked with her manager and it was honored.

we tried the wine & dine menu.It was a good bargain since it included a bottle of wine.My friend had sea food over linguine. The fish included shrimp,mussels & clams.The portion was a good amount.Our husbands had the tilapia .It was served with mash potatoes a green vegetable. For dietary reasons my friends husband substituted extra vegetables for the potatoes.
We enjoyed our meal and would probably return
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love this place!
Every time we make a trip to Naples, we visit Vergina and it never disappoints! The staff reads your requests on the Open Table reservation site, and will do their best to accommodate.

Another Great Dinner at Vergina's
We had a great meal, we loved the seafood salad is the perfect size to share ! The seafood tasted so fresh. We had the tomato encrusted Branzino Crosta and the short ribs and both were outstanding ! I already have another RESV. set up to go back !
This has become one of our favorites on 5th. Ave . I think it is a must !
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful as usual!!!
We were seated quickly at a perfect table outside. Our food was wonderful and our waiter knew exactly what we needed and timed our dinner perfectly. So glad, after living in the area for many years, that it is still as nice as it always been. Great place to people watch and take in the beautiful 5th Avenue Christmas decorations. Thanks to all for making this such a nice evening for us!!

Wonderful customer service!
We live in Naples full time and had guests that wanted delicious Italian food with a great ambiance. We took them to Vergina, as our experience has always been great. When we arrived, we noticed they had just changed their menu and no longer offered the menu items that our guests wanted in particular (chicken parm. & linguini with white clam sauce). Our server overheard our conversation and before we knew it, Vergina's manager came over to the table and told us the chef would be happy to prepare those items for us, even though they were not on the menu. We were delighted that the chef would prepare those items for us, and the meals were very delicious! We all had a wonderful experience.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our service was outstanding, very considerate of our special needs....elderly with walker....a puppy!
I have not had a better meal anywhere, amazing dinner!
We will return, often!
