  • Super awesome food! Great staff and Antonio was super helpful! The pizza and pasta was amazing. And they are conveniently located.

We tried many places in Naples and have come back here a few times. They have great selections and very friendly.
  • Okay, now this place was pretty cool. It is one of Naples' three castles, and one of the two interesting ones, or at least the ones that you can actually go inside and have a wander around. In fact this castle also doubles as not only the city hall but also and art gallery. Another great thing about this place was that it didn't actually cost anything to go insider and have a wander around.
