Naples for the weekend down from Tampa.

We are doing Baleen on Saturday night for dinner...I have been trying to contact as well as having AMEX contact Tulia with no answer for the last 2 days? Does anyone know if they closed?

So if Tulia is not open for Friday night, I am looking for another spot. There will be a group of 6 of us. Is Campiello's just as good? I hold Italian to high standards.

Visting Tampa from NYC. Recommendation please (researched)!

Edison's is good, they are now serving liquor and good and interesting cocktails.

For Italian, I am a Café Paradiso (on South Macdill) fan.

And the obvious Tampa staple is Bern's Steakhouse which is not on your list, but definitely worth a visit.

Ok thanks for the info...been to Grille 22 a few times and its good, but for some reason I'm not a huge fan.

We are all between 30-40.

Sorelina looks fantatatic and they have some very good things posted on the, but we have a few Newbies to Boston and I think the North End is a spot I deinitely want to show them.
