Considered by dining critics to be the Dining Capital of Southwest Florida, Naples excels at creative, fine fare but also sticks to its fishing community roots with colorful fish houses and friendly family restaurants.
Some of the top restaurants in Naples have Fifth Avenue South addresses. Downtown’s sidewalk café society extends also to nearby Third Street South.
Fine but casual downtown restaurants serve Mediterranean, Irish, French, Italian, Caribbean, American, Asian, and fusion fare along with a festive atmosphere.
Other places to eat of note reside in the city’s name resorts and along U.S. Highway 41, a.k.a. Tamiami Trail. Taste everything from fine aged steaks to Persian bistro dishes.
In waterfront restaurants along the Gordon River, drink in the view while stabbing into fresh-from-the-hook seafood. Hop aboard the convenient water shuttle to make the rounds.
