IM Tapas Ratings and Reviews
We so enjoyed out meal. We had the mussels, the duck, empanadas and the octopus. Everything was delicious! And also loved the bottle of white wine from Majorca that we ordered. I think it was called Sio. If you enjoy tapas, or a tasting menu then this place is for you! Looking forward to returning.
Isabelle and Mary are great chefs and hosts. Party of 4 ordered 8 different tapas and 1 dessert and left completely full and very satisfied. Each dish was different and very tasty. Server knew dishes and preparation. Server knew the wine list and each wine his recommendations were right on.
Love the Spanish music playing in the background.
We’ll definitely be back!
Once again we were provided with a fabulous dining experience at IM Tapas. The service is always perfectly attentive without rushing us. The octopus is one of the best dishes I have ever had. The salt cod croquettes are unique and delicious. The sea bass served with fried leeks is always fresh and absolutely wonderful. It continues to be one of the best restaurants in Naples.
We frequent this restaurant for its sleek modern interior, very good tapas and entrees. This time we tried the superb lobster bisque, tapas - mussels in a divine tomato broth, shrimp in garlic oil and pork belly entree. They were all so good we may repeat this order the next time we go. Great crusty bread. This restaurant has the best tapas in town, bar none. Nor do they charge if you want a second order of bread ... which is necessary to soak up the divine sauces.
Very good and creative selection of tapas that are well-prepared. Service is good, but the prices are on the high side for tapas. Double check your bill and your credit card statement: the amount IM Tapas charged my credit card was about $15 above what we paid in the restaurant!
One of the best tapas restaurants I've been to (and I've been to a lot of tapas restaurants!). The level of creativity in the food preparation and the menu is outstanding! Every dish is perfectly prepared with just the right balance of the spices and ingredients. And, the service is excellent. Isabel's culinary skills are amazing; she and Mary have a winning recipe for success with I.M. Tapas!
We're in Naples once a year for a family vacation, and on 1 night we go out for a date night sans kids. This is the 2nd time I've chosen IM Tapas and was thoroughly happy. I love tapas, I like sharing and trying different things. There are lots of very good restaurants in Naples, but this rainy Saturday night I wanted a place for excellent food in a nice atmosphere that wasn't a Scene in any way. IM Tapas is off the beaten track and I knew we'd be able to park right outside. Spanish food is a treat, we talk about visiting Spain but for now we had a glass of cava, a carafe of sangria, and a host of yummy nibbles. I love the olives, we had the squash blossoms and empanada specials, both very good. Then we had the stuffed artichoke hearts and finally the mussels steamed in a spicy chorizo and saffron broth. The mussels were my husband's particular favorite, delicious and yes, quite spicy! The artisan bread they serve along with a lovely olive tapenade is excellent, and worth the small additional charge for more bread to soak up the delectable broth (you would never want that to go to waste). We were quite full but being on vacation, and seeing that the night was still young, I wanted to try the rice pudding. We both enjoyed that as well.
We arrived on the early side (maybe not so much by Naples standards!), and since the dinner service was just starting the wonderful smells hadn't yet started to waft from the kitchen. It did, however, smell very clean, which is a super quality in a restaurant as far as I'm concerned. When we arrived there were only a couple of other parties but as the meal progressed more and more tables filled, a couple of them with larger family groups including kids. One of the owners came out from the kitchen for a bit to greet guests. She politely inquired how we were enjoying the meal and as she moved on to other tables it was clear she knew a number of them as regulars. This makes me happy, I hope they continue to do well!
As always, we enjoyed our dinner at IMTapas. We ordered five different tapas, four of which were delicious. We had the beet Napolean, chorizo in cider, gambas al ajillo (shrimps cooked in garlic), the fois gras and the morels. The only thing we didn't like was the morels, as they had very little flavor.
This was absolutely the worst restaurant I've ever been to. STAY AWAY, RUN, and DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!!!
The place is next to a massage parlor with blacked out windows and neon lights and ...well, you get the picture! The host acted as if we had not made reservations which of course we had. Then it took 10 minutes for them to figure out who our server was going to be! Then came the mix up of our order not to mention getting a spoiled bottle of wine easily over 80 degrees swapped for what we had actually ordered which they were out of!!!
Now on the so called Tapas...these people haven't a clue. I lived in Spain and can tell you this couldn't be further from the real thing. Every item was a disaster in form, texture, taste, AND price. At the end, the chef/co-owner (Isabel) came out to our table after hearing of the repeated scewups of our order just to blame it all on her staff!! Completely unprofessional behavior and absent of any decency. I would definitely NOT recommend this sorry excuse for a restaurant.
Great tapas, but our waitress forgot to order the cheese platter which I specifically ordered first as if takes 20 minutes to cut the artisnal cheeses. We had to wait some time for the platter, so double check your order when placing. The cheeses were worth the wait!
We've been to IMTapas countless times over the years and it never disappoints. If you don't see something you like on the menu, ask for Isabel or Mary, and I guarantee that they will make something you'll love. The menu is extensive, so you may not need help. If you haven't been there, don't wait.
De Lo Mas Delicioso!!!
(Loosely translated ... It was the BEST!!!
The food tickled all our senses:. Culinary presentation was charming, creative, carefully designed, a feast for eyes and the tummy.
Personal attention from the Chef and the wait staff was like dining in the home of best friends. Each of the savory Tapas were served in a timely manner, spaced to ensure that we enjoyed each morsel before the next plate was presented. Our gratitude to Isabel's Madre for the awesome empanadas, spinach croquettes and espresso flan.
We will write more next week when we return to sample those items that we could not include tonight (only because we were totally sated with that which we ordered.
This was our first time at I.M. Tapas. We are 3 long time best gal pals recreating our trip to Barcelona last year.
We felt like we were transported back to Barcelona for Tapas, sangria and rioja... but even better!
Thank you Isabel, Mary, Madre and the incredibly attentive staff. We WILL BE BAAACCK

My daughter and I are both primarily vegan and it is very difficult to find any decent vegan or vegetarian options in the Fort Myers or Naples area. We drove all the way down from Fort Myers specifically to try a nice restaurant and hopefully get some decent modifications to fit our dietary restrictions. I have to say that the food here was excellent and the minor modifications that they made did not detract from the quality of the food. My only complaint (if you could even call it that), was that they seemed understaffed. I don't feel that we got the attention that we deserved for the price, but otherwise the service that we did have was very congenial and as attentive as they could be.
This is the best restaurant in Naples. The menu is unique and the food is perfectly prepared. The chefs clearly pursue excellence in the kitchen. The service is attentive and they do not rush you. The only negatives are that the atmosphere is somewhat lacking and it is expensive. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
So disappointed! This was my splurge for Valentines dinner. Had a reservation for 7:30. Wasn't seated till 8:15 then waited 20 min to put an order in and had to ask another server to find ours. We only ordered 3 tapas and we recieved two somewhat timely then the third took another 20-30 min with no food and I finished my wine before the last course. I mentioned to multiple people that I was a bit let down by the evening, hoping to get some apology or reassurance. They simple said well it's Valentine's Day and we're down someone. A glass on wine on the house would've been nice. Will not be joining them again or recommending.
Tapas - style is Great for trying new things! We went on a super-busy night so the service was a little chaotic, but the vibe in the restaurant was fun! We had a reservation, but still ended up being seated for dinner at the bar. Which was fine and ended up being very fun!
