Osteria Da Carmela
Situated next door to the Bellini Theatre, and opposite the Academy of Fine Arts, this tavern enjoys a convenient location in one of the most historically and architecturally important parts of the city. Founded in 1967, on the site of a Second World War air-raid shelter, it has come under family management, which gives it a very pleasant atmosphere.
We visited Osteria da Carmela because we read about in in Fodor's Italy 2009. It's on a tiny sidestreet, so many people probably pass it by. The restaurant is very small--it seats about 30 people--but the food is excellent and the service was outstanding. When our waiter found out we spoke English, he went through the trouble of finding us the restaurant's English menu, in which the dishes and their descriptions were painstakingly (and competently) translated into English. Though we came a bit late (the stores and some restaurants in Naples often close between 2 and 4), the staff didn't seem to mind that we stayed and enjoyed our meal. We spent under 60 euro for antipasto, two main courses, house wine, coffee, tea, and two desserts. It was a wonderful experience, and we hope to get back to Osteria da Carmela before we leave.
