      There is a very recent thread on Naples that had some great recommendations.

          Again, I have been a concierge in Naples as well as Sanibel. If you would like to email me and tell my your tastes and budget, I can match a restaurant to your needs. pancakeone@yahoo.com

              campiello's is wonderful. they also own d'amico's and they used to be quite good for low key italian but they have deteriorated in the past six months. went to steamer's which was recommended by someone here and it was terrible...what a ripoff. seafood and shrimp salad sandwich was surimi and the worse salad shrimp imaginable. the other item, swordfish sandwich was just as poor. they sell a lot of onion rings which i guess is why people go there....the old timer next to us was just eating those and nothing else.

              grouper and chips is wonderful and don't overlook getting it blackened instead of fried. fries are good there as well.

              went up to ft. myers to the 'famous' indian Palace and didn't think it was worth the trip.. so/so.

                Just found a new, AWESOME, place in Bonita Beach (on Bonita Beach Rd.) called Wylds Cafe - it was fabulous. Nice quant quiet ambience, excellent service - very creative dishes.
                Can't wait to try more dishes, all of ours (including salads were above and beyond).

                  Lexpatti, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I've been touting this place for awhile. I particularly love their calamari and the Kurobuta pork chops. That's all I buy now at the butcher. I did a side by side with a regular pork chop and it's dramatically better. Wyld's is also wine friendly, letting you bring as many bottles of wine as you'd like. However, I don't like to be a pig about it and will order something off their list, whether it's a glass if there with Ms.Rev, or a bottle if dining with another couple.

                    Do you mean that Wyld's Cafe will let diners bring in their own bottle of wine for dinner? I love that idea! Is that a common practice in Florida? What is the corkage fee (or service fee)?

                      Wyld's has a very liberal corkage policy. They may or may not charge $10 a bottle. I always give the server a taste, which often results in no corkage. Many restaurants allow byob, and I've found the average corkage to be $15. Call ahead. I feel proper etiquette is to order something off their wine list and certainly don't bring a bottle that the restaurant offers.

                  Randy's Fish House has the best fried belly clams in town.
                  It's a drive to the East Trail but just had Mexican at a dive called Tapatio's--fabulous and cheap.
                  Dolly's is great for breakfast--on Bonita Beach Road. Also, First Watch is terrific for breakfast and Larry's Lunch Box for sandwiches. Noodles Saigon is wonderful, especially their summer rolls, beef with tomatoes (sounds boring but the name does NOT do it justice) and their real vietnamese iced coffee.

                      I recommend Trilogy. We had a good meal a few months ago.
