Fodor's Review

Under the same ownership as the Ristorante Museo Caruso, this budget alternative to its famous brother has no cover or service charges, but offers the same wine list (about 1,700 labels) plus a bountiful choice of hearty Italian dishes. In a tiny alley between piazzas Tasso and St. Antonino, its main salon is decorated with modern paintings of an erupting Vesuvius, but for a more romantic setting, the smaller room on the opposite side of the road has a tiny balcony overlooking the tortuous road to the harbor. There is also outside seating. Try the strozzapreti (priest-chokers) pasta with scampi and cherry tomatoes or the fabulous rice cake on zucchini sauce.
