This was our third time here since this restaurant is located adjacent to B&B Piazza Dante. Nunzia and her family run the cozy operation with Nunzia cooking and supervising. The food is fabulously authentic and although there are culinary staples day in and day out (alici fritte, Neapolitan sausage, etc), Nunzia determines where the menu will head each day. Our spaghetti vongole was superbly al dente and loaded with the tasty morsels.

Unfortunately, the three of us accepted what we thought were meal-included appetizers (which were themselves stunningly delicious). We found out upon receiving our moderate bill that we were charged for the appetizers AND a bottle of wine which we neither ordered nor even hit our table. With only about 5 tables of the ground-level dining space and maybe 6 customers in all (including us) in the place this oversight could have been nothing less than intentional. Further, the waiter (Nunzia's son or son-in-law) did not return with our change.

So instead of creating a scene, we just left, chalked it up to chance, promised to never return, and to write the true events on TripAdvisor with this caveat: even Neapolitan born and bred Mrs. InsiemeSempre can be bamboozled now and then in her city. Beware then, if you do go here, get the English menu and ask questions about what is and what is not included and at what price.

Walked around Naples and then realised we wanted a late lunch/early dinner, unfortunately a lot of restaurant kitchens close at 16:00 and we were struggling to find anywhere willing to cook us a meal. On the off chance we went up a tiny side road and discovered this tiny restaurant, who were willing to cook us a meal. We ordered our drinks and food, the restaurant appears to be very much a family affair with grand daughter asleep in the buggy while Mum, Dad, grandparents and great grandparents were visible in and out of the place. The veal escalopes and sausage were freshly prepared with a side of potatoes, we also ordered some mixed vegetables (courgette, spinach, aubergine) the chef/owner came and asked whether we would like to try a desert that was a speciality devised by his father (great grandad), it was a creamy chocolate confection similar to tiramisu minus the coffee and was very yummy. To finish we were presented with a complementary small hot glass of strong coffee, a perfect end to a very tasty meal.

We found this place by accident! In our way to see "The Other Naples" we passed Piazza Dante Aleghieri, and were actually just looking for a quick lunch. After all, we had just climbed up and down the 414 steps to the castle!

So we saw this little alley, and some chairs and tables on a street without cars and Scooters! And then we got served! We just wanted a quick salad, but the menu was so traditional we selected two times spaghetti aglio olio and one pomodoro! Then we got served some unexpected antipasti - fantastic! And instead of a cold mezzo rose, we got a cold red - fantastic!!!

Thank Frank W
