Christmas Day in Naples

I'm looking for restaurant ideas for Christmas Day in Naples. We have ruled out the Ritz (too expensive at $150/pp). 5 people (family with teenagers), looking for delicious food and an upscale atmosphere, but nothing too modern. Thanks in advance.

    1. Likely many restaurants will be closed. Capital grill may be open. Also you can try other hotel restaurants like La Playa. The food there is generally good and the venue (right on the beach) is very nice,

      1. Tulia is not open Christmas. Try Baleen. You can walk up from the Ritz. It is stunning, and you will be sitting on the gulf. Good is very good. They are on Open Table. It might be late already.

        The Ritz Christmas dinner is totally over the top. $800 for the 5 of you. Baleen will be much less.

        1. Two ideas:

          1) the lobby at the Ritz, tapas style , nice selections and a LOT more reasonable than the buffet.

          2) M Waterfront Grille, consistent, good but not great .

            Have you been to the Ritz since their makeover. It is totally different now. I've not been yet...looking for someone who has been.

              Yes. We've been there. I like the changes, a bit more modern and less formal. The food was as good as ever. Try it.
