This was my first time visiting this restaurant and I must say I was impressed. Great service, very tasty food and the room itself was lovely. I will be making a return visit!

Il Cafe di Napoli is a great favourite of ours.Whether for lunch, pre-theatre meal or dinner it always comes up trumps.The impromptu arias performed by a very musically talented pizza chef made our experience on Thurs evening a very enjoyable one.

What a lovely restaurant! Almost a hidden gem as from out the front it looks like a café. However, out the back and down the stairs reveals a gorgeous restaurant with great atmosphere. Food was amazing and it was served very quickly. Also reasonably priced. The one small let down was the service. A bit slow to take our drink and food order (although, once ordered the food came very quickly). We ordered a bottle of wine and the waiters did not top up our glasses when finished! The specials board had a potato and leek soup (which 2 of our party ordered) but they served up minestrone soup. We questioned them because it didn't look like potato and leek soup and we were told that they actually don't have any potato and leek soup left and they now only have minestrone soup and our waiter should have informed us of this....... The food was really good however and I would highly recommend the place. Just don't expect 5 star service. The mussels and pollo e pancetta alla napoletana are amazing! I will be back!

I would return. For quieter, more intimate, seating, ask for a table under the stairs.

Went here for coffee and cake one evening, the cream in the the bun tasted sour, looked like it had been sitting in the sun all day and the bottom of the bun was soggy… Complained to the staff member and I was informed that it was supposed to be like that, absolutely not! Will not be returning!

I had dinner here last night and, while the food was good, the service let this place down. We arrived at about 5:30pm and I was delighted that my friend had secured a table outside (it was the hottest day of the year after all). My delight was short-lived as we were told they don’t serve dinner outside, which was annoying but I’m sure they have their reasons so we went downstairs to the restaurant. The setting is pleasant. It’s somewhat rustic and the open kitchen adds to the charm. We were shown to our table and presented with two large menus. The first thing that struck me was there was no Early Bird or Pre-Theatre option. (Seriously? It's 2014.) There can’t be that many restaurants left that don’t have some type of offer, particularly for mid-week. Having said that, our server wasn’t particularly informative, so perhaps they did have an offer which he neglected to tell us about. In a similar way, he neglected to tell us about the specials of the day which we only noticed on a blackboard after we’d placed our order – very frustrating. We both just went for main courses as the menu, particularly for Italian food, is pretty expensive. We also ordered two glasses of white wine and asked for some tap water. We were aghast when we were served room temperature water. On such a warm day, how could they have no ice for water? Maybe there's a ban on cold drinks as our wine wasn’t chilled, either. The water we could probably excuse, but there’s just no excuse for warm Pinot Grigio. Thankfully, our main courses were pretty good. My Chicken Milanese was a little greasy but had a good flavour and my friend’s pasta dish was really nice. We finished off with a cappuccino each, which I must say was excellent. The total bill for two mains, two glasses of wine and two coffees was €55 which we felt was on the steep side. Overall, I thought the food was good but it’s the lack of attention to detail and the lack of a value offering that really lets this restaurant down.
