Zeits and Insatiable, thanks for your replies. FYI. Last year, we enjoyed sitting at the bar at Bricktop, had a good meal and a super bartender serving us. Our food at Brio was good - but our service was horrible. They ended up giving us a free round of drinks and dessert (neither of which we asked for, but the gesture was nice.) Our server basically disappeared!

Val, just looked up Alexander's...I don't know how we missed that on our last trip. The menu looks right up our alley. Thanks for the recommendation. And yes, we have Escargot 41 on our list.

Park Shore in Naples

We're staying at a lovely pool home in Park Shore for the second year in a row this April. Last year's dining choices were a bit hit and miss - we didn't do enough research! We really like to walk or ride bikes when possible, but of course, will definitely drive out some nights.

We ate at Bricktop, Brio's, D'Amico, Island Pub, Flacco's, Mangrove Cafe, and The Dock last year. While visiting my folks in Naples in past years, we've eaten at Ridgway, Tommy Bahama, Yabba Island Grill, Mangrove Cafe (I heard there was a terrible fire there...), Campiello's and others.

We'd like to go to the Turtle Club one night, maybe for apps and drinks (do you need a reservation to eat at the bar?). Also, thinking of trying Escargot 41 for some fine French dining (or would we be better off at Bleu Provence or Bamboo Cafe?) My husband does not like Indian food, so I am guessing the Bha Bha would not be his cup of tea - although I would love to try it.

Any other thoughts for that neighborhood? Although I shopped in Venetian Village last year, we didn't eat there - but I see there are several restaurants. A friend mentioned Cibao Grill on Neapolitan Way, has anyone tried it?

We really like to keep things casual and fun on vacation, nothing too formal. Esp. if we are on bikes or foot!

Thanks in advance for your help...
