The restaurant scene in Naples is quite diverse, from flip-flops-right-on-the-beach casual to fine dining with your toes in the sand. What’s unique about Naples is that many of the eateries are locally owned, and 40 of those owners have organized to create Naples Originals. The group fosters the independent restaurant community with events, deals and more. And many area restaurants stick to the local-is-better ethos and feature locally sourced ingredients, as well as fresh seafood from the Gulf of Mexico.
Several of the most popular spots to eat in Naples are found in The Village on Venetian Bay, where all of the restaurants overlook the tranquil bay, and in downtown Naples along Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South.
