Fodor's Expert Review Ristorante Bellini
Set on a proud perch on the corner of the chicly bohemian Piazza Bellini for more than 70 years, this spot is worth visiting just to observe the waiters, who all seem to have just stepped off the stage of a Neapolitan comedy. But if the neighborhood remains scruffy, this staple Neapolitan restaurant proudly retains its old-world feel. Good bets here include a fine (if rather small) pizza, and classic fish dishes such as linguine al cartoccio (baked in paper) or all'astice (a type of small lobster). Go up the narrow stairs to get to the spacious upper rooms, or squeeze in at one of the outside tables in summer.
