Tucked in a cozy little building in Bearden for almost 30 years, Naples is too comfortable to count as fine dining and too good to count as just a local Italian restaurant. The food’s traditional but inventive; you could stick to spaghetti and meatballs or go for one of their surprising daily raviolis or seafood specials. The atmosphere’s just right, too—casual enough, but the impeccable service and old-world charm make it perfectly acceptable for special occasions, too. And with only a handful of selections topping the $20 mark, you won’t regret any of it when the check comes.
