Romantic Dinner in Naples and Lounge Suggestions...

Hi -- I'm arriving into Naples on a Friday night. We are staying Positano, but would like to go out for dinner and drinks afterwards in Naples before heading to Positano.. It's my girlfriend's birthday, so looking for some really, really good food (beautiful setting would be nice) and a good hang afterwards. Please let me know any suggestions.

  1. How do you plan on getting to Positano after clubbing? Public transportation is going to be scarce to non-existent, taxis will run you a fortune -- and while I am a lover of Napoli and a defender of it, I wouldn't attempt to hail a taxi in Napoli late at night and negotiate a fee to get to Positano. Usually, the only safe bets for car transfers from Napoli to the Amalfi coast are ones pre-arranged through reputable providers -- and that's hard to do if you're out clubbing.

    If you are looking for a beautiful setting, go straight to Positano and you no doubt can get some recommendations for a good restaurant and a lovely place for an after dinner drink -- athough it will come at a price and it probably won't have the urban youthful vibe of Napoli.

    But logistically, what you're thinking of doing is next to impossible unless you pre-arrange a very expensive car to pick you up at the end of your clubbing

      Car is arranged. 50 Euro per hour. Very reasonable.

        any suggestions for nightlife and dinner. (Ive read some previous posts, but looking for more suggestions)

      2. No doubti, go to the restaurant of Parker's Hotel at Corso Vittorio Emanuele; one of the best restaurant in Naples, at the seventh floor of the hotel with a very delightful view of the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius.
        It will be an unforgettable experience full of emotions.
        Not cheap, anyway.
