This is one of my favorite places in Naples. The view is the best for ocean viewing while enjoying a lovely dinner. The purpose of this re-review is to advise of some change ps made under the new ownership. Valet parking is mandatory, and the service has been excellent, prompting a $5.00 or $10.00 tip.

This is one of our favorite romantic restaurants in Naples with excellent food, service, and atmosphere. Having dinner on or near the beach only enhances the whole dining experience here! It's also our favorite "special occasion" restaurant - celebrated a birthday recently with outstanding food and wine and terrific service. Highly recommend. Yes, it's spendy but well worth it!!
