Expert review of Poseidone

This is an easy dining option on the Lungomare.

Attached to the Parteno B&B upstairs, this is easy dining, so if you're with kids (very young to teenage) it's a well-located no-brainer. The long menu is clearly designed to appeal to tourists as well as locals, and there are a few things that might have you wrinkling your brow - hamburgers and chicken nuggets, for instance - but, if you choose well, you'll be rewarded. 

Food and drink: 

Stick with the obviously fresh stuff: pasta, fish, pizza, and you won't go far wrong. The 31 pizza toppings (and that doesn't include the fried pizza) should be enough to satisfy even the fussiest little eater and, at these prices, it scarcely matters if you don't get it quite right first time. Wines are sourced from all over Italy with three whites and seven reds from Campania. 

Ambience: 

It's fun and friendly with outside tables for when the weather is fine.  

Service: 

The staff here are affable but professional. 

Location: 

It's a rather chi-chi address, being along the same strip as all of Naples' grandest hotels - the Via Partenope that faces the Bay.

Price advice: 

It's wonderfully well-priced: two people can eat three courses with wine for around 50 euros. Those who are just coming in for a drink could do worse than order 375ml of falanghina, tufa di greco or fiano for 10 euros.
