“Hidden pearl in Napoli”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2012

I'm almost hesitating whether I should reveal this little place to other tourists... The place was packed with locals and I kinda liked it that way :) We were recommended this place - by a local.
Very easy to miss, it does not make big publicity outside... once inside it has fun interior.
This is a fish/sea food restaurant with wonderful food at great value. Some dishes are even a bit peculiar, we saw some combinations we have never seen.
Have the antipasti of the house, it is fantastic and very generous!!
Can't wait to go back!

“Excellent dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

Warm atmosphere, excellent local food, few tourists and many locals. We had very good and local fresh fish for antipasto as well as a superb mozzarella. Pasta con granchio (small local crabs) and paccheri with shrimps .Fried spigola (sea bass): very good to eat but also spectacular to see a whole large fish fried. Delicious deserts: torta al pistacchio and apple pie. Very good price-quality ratio. We will certainly go back to try other delicious specialities

“Good quality, original recipies, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2011

The restaurant is located on Napoli famous Mergellina road by the sea, and it's very well decorated. It is warm and it looks more like a "trattoria" than a formal restaurant. Owners are very nice and friendly. They were also happy to provide chairs and toys for families with small kids.

Menu offers some classic fish dishes, but I would say that it is more interesting for the original recepies available. I would recommend the "pasta fresca con peperoncini verdi, cozze, gamberetti e pomodorini" (fresh pasta with sweet green peppers, mussels, shrimps and cherry tomatoes). Antipasti della casa and home made desserts were delicious. The list of wines is not huge, but properly equipped with various italian wines of excellent quality.

Service is provided by the owners plus a waitress. As the restaurant is not too big this is more than enough for a relaxed dinner. But do not expect that they come pour your glass of wine.

And the bill in the end is fair, I would even say a little low taking into consideration quality of food and location.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2011

It is in a wonderful location between Posillipo and Mergellina: "The First".
A small room nicely decorated with bright colors and cheerful and full of endless sea of inspiration items;
the operator, Lucio, who treats you nice as if you knew for years, suggests you with passion and skill choices in a very rich and intriguing menu based on fresh fish and delicious cuisine.
It is definitely a place where you have to eat if you go to Naples.
