Brasserie de l'Hotel de Ville

Reviewed By Heiko H - Hanau, Germany

Fantastic french style restaurant/brasserie. downstairs like a typical french brasserie and upstairs first class restaurant. I was invited by a customer who seems to be there very often. So the service was very personal and perfect.
The food was excellent and special to mention the beef cafe de Paris-style.
Also the wine card is exceptinal, Hardly never seen so much different wines (mainly from France) at such a good value !!

La Ferme des Brandt

Reviewed By jackievet - London, United Kingdom

A delightful traditional restaurant. The atmosphere is lovely same as the service. The food is absolutely good. They serve traditional Swiss food beautifully presented. The venison with pepper sauce is highly recommended. Try it with a Swiss specialty the spezli. Wide range of dessert, the creme brûlée and maroon vermicelli is very nice. I highly recommend the place.

PIZZERIA FRIGGITORIA NAPOLI

Reviewed By Brad C - Amarillo, Texas

We could not go to Naples and try pizza where it originated. Our guide, Stefano took us to this neighborhood restaurant. It was definitely not a normal tourist stop. I believe it was filled with mostly locals and we were the only tourists there. We each tried a different pizza. I tried the fried pizza. I will admit I had never heard of it, but it was so light and tasty. I was able to eat the entire pizza. The staff was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. When we arrived it was almost full, but a group moved to another table so that our group (5) could sit together. I am not sure that would have happened as easily in the states. We definitely recommend this if you want a true Napoli experience.

La Parenthese

Reviewed By Bambooly

Kind of gastronomic restaurant, it's a really cute little place. Staff is really friendly and as expected for such place, menu are restricted to 5-6 entree and few starters.
Plates are really nicely arranged, colorful and elaborated with a lot of passion and you expect a explosion of taste in the mouth. The "mise en bouche" was great but I was strongly disappointed with the scallops, which were over-cooked and almost "chewy"... Therefore I can't rank this place higher than average even if it will have been considered as "good" in a brasserie-like restaurant...

Brasserie de la Fontaine

Reviewed By ReiseKurre - Oslo, Norway

Why are the Brasserie la Fontaine not on Tripadvisor before now? We were looking for a place to eat and a little by coincident we ended up at this for us local bar and restaurant. What a nice surprise. Conclusion first: great local food. The food tasted really homemade. It was fresh and very tasty. The portions were also of a decent size. Great value for money. Very friendly staff. Try out Brasserie la Fontaine!
This is a sports bar and restaurant. They have a spacious outdoor Seating. Centrally located downtown. The first impression when we went in was a little "barish". They had tables for indoor serving and bar desk and relaxing areas. The place itself gave an impression of being "slightly worn out", but this was not an obstacle for good service and great food.
The staff was busy with quite a lot of guests, so it took alittle time before we got our food. Anyhow, it was well worth waiting. The menu had a good selection of both international and local dishes. We tested out some of the more local ones. The staff was so friendly and "genuine". They were very helpful and we felt very welcome and taken well care of.
So bottom line, do not judge the quality of the food of the first impression of a place (meaning that it did not give us the "white-tablecloth-restaurant" feeling when we stepped in). If we are ever in the vicinity again we will for sure have our meal here!

This is a nice place with great atmosphere and where people are really friendly and you are welcome.
Sounds like a super restaurant when you look at the menu and discover that they have limited dishes, which is usually a very good sign. However food is ok... nothing special that make you to come back.... you get what you expect, not better, to worst.... that's it.
