Naples is a foodie’s dream, with endless options for dining out and enjoying the ambiance of the Gulf. If you love Italian, Barbatella is a must. Located on the bustling Third Ave, Barbatella serves up traditional Italian cuisine and brick-oven pizza that is to die for. You also cannot leave without having the mint-chocolate-chip gelato! For beach lovers, head over to the Turtle Club at Vanderbilt Beach for alfresco dining in the sand. The restaurant’s Famous Oysters “Turtlefeller” are killer, and proceeds from its signature drink, the “Turtle-tini,” go to the Conservancy of Southwest Florida’s sea turtle research efforts, so enjoy a cocktail or two, for the sea turtles! For lunch, Pinchers Crab Shack in Tin City is fab – the crab-and-cheese dip, while completely sinful, was amazing!
