I visited Naples for the first time with a group of friends. I was intrigued by the calamari steak since I had never heard of that before. It was delicious! The sauce on the linguini was spicy, and that's exactly what I wanted. Our waitress...More

We enjoy going to Naples, it's very traditional Italian with red and white checkered table cloth, tasty bread and herbed butter. I've gotten several different dishes, but Pasta Supremo is my favorite.
