Alto is a waterside restaurant by Charles Mereday, located in Naples’ luxury Bayfront, on trendy 5th Avenue South. Subtitled "Live, Jazz, Kitchen," Alto recalls a classic supper club of the thirties and forties. Live music will be part of the Alto experience beginning in early March 2014 with musicians of local, national and international recognition performing nightly. No background music and no audio tapes!<br /><br />Though a restaurant and jazz club, cuisine is center stage with Executive Chef Jay Bucklin at the helm of Alto's kitchen.<br /><br />The inspiration for Alto is Philadelphia's landmark Zanzibar Blue, Mereday's first restaurant as executive chef. Zanzibar Blue offered upscale dining and was also a popular jazz club.

There are three ways to enjoy the Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar, one of Naples most beloved waterfront restaurants for locals and visitors alike. The Café, on the sidewalk level, has the wonderful, bustling ambience of a big city neighborhood café. The Café menu offers sandwiches, salads and light entrees through the late afternoon and evening. The Grill, accepting reservations, is upstairs and overlooks the Venetian Bay -- one of Naples best waterfront dining views. The Grill specializes in creative and superbly prepared seafood, meats, and pasta dishes. The Grill menu is also served on the Upper Deck Bar and Covered Patio, an award winning outdoor cocktail and dining spot that overlooks Venetian Bay and provides spectacular hues of the setting sun. Between 2-5 p.m. the Upper Deck Bar offers a lighter, late lunch menu.<br />

Renowned Chef Tim McKee, 2009 James Beard award winner for “Best Chef Midwest”, designed the core menu for Sea Change which focuses on sustainable seafood, highlighting fisheries that use environmentally responsible methods of gathering and farming seafood. The menu also includes a number of items under the heading “Not Fish” as well as late night offerings of small plates and raw bar selections. <br />

"Made a reservation for lunch for a Saturday before a Guthrie matinee. We were very disappointed that the menu was a brunch menu with many breakfast-type foods. We don't go to a seafood place looking for eggs and bacon, omelets with ham, etc. Servers were pleasant, as was ambiance - big windows overlooking Mississippi River."

Artisan Bistro is a modern and inviting dining room dressed in rich dark and light woods with elegant European design elements. Accents of black, off-white, cognac, blues and warm grays echo a classic bistro look and feel. Crafted wood wainscoting throughout the room and soft ambient lighting from above highlight the white-washed, wood floors to further enhance the bistro-like setting. New stitched-leather booth seating lines the dramatic floor to ceiling wall of windows overlooking Avery Street and two high-top u-shaped booths frame the space on either end. Additional cluster seating is intimate and close, allowing for easy conversation and lively exchange. Artisan Bistro features fresh, local seasonal dishes that present artisanal cooking in an approachable way. The restaurant’s bar is lively but casual with specialty cocktails, local microbrews, an extensive wine list and signature brunch Bloody Mary menu.

"Dined for lunch before the ballet matinee. Very good autumn salad - with a generous piece of salmon added, it made a perfect lunch. Extensive children's menu. Kids' meals came with a small strawberry smoothie - a nice touch."

Housed in Historic Naples Mercantile Building, Campiello offers inventive Italian cuisine inspired by a traditional Tuscan country cooking, with an open kitchen and many wood-roasted and rotisserie-grilled specialties. Join us for the "Italian Taste Tour" - a series of month long culinary salutes to Italy's greatest regions.<br />The restaurant features a lavish interior inspired by Michelangelo-designed Villa San Michele in Friesole, Italy-replete with Murano light fixtures, fine leather chairs and banquettes, polished Venetian plaster, and hand painted Florentine murals.

"Great spot for outdoor dining on the main drag in Old Naples. We prefer their lunch menu over the dinner one. Good lunch entrée salads. Pleasant server but didn't check to see if our food was okay and didn't offer beverage refills until after we were finished with our meals."
