We visited DaFofo on our first night in Naples after wondering around Vomero for a bit. We had a seafood platter to share and it was incredible. Tasted amazing, the presentation was fantastic. We both spoke next to no Italian but the owner was super helpful and obviously very passionate about his food. The price was very reasonable for such great seafood!! If we are ever in Naples again we will be coming back for sure! Would totally recommend this place to anyone who wants great authentic Italian cuisine in a cosy setting.

Excellent restaurant. The best owner of a restaurant we met in many many years. He is so passionate in his work. His mission is to make us enjoy every minute sitting in his restaurant.
The food is excellent and varied. We were in Naples for two days and we eat there for two times a lunch and a dinner. We wished to eat more there but we had to make a space for a pizza in a traditional pizzeria as well.
So we tried there the collection of antipasti , the parmigiana is to die for. The pasta dishes with the sea food and with the Alici (anchovies) are excellent. The grilled pork and chicken juicy and filled with flavors. The potato fries , salads, deserts all are perfect.
Few wine selections which were really professional and made us try new tastes.
The food , service and the place are perfect but the most beautiful thing is the generosity and love of the the restaurant owner to his place and his customers which made the whole thing so memorable.
Next visit to Naples will sure be started with a great time at Da fofo.

We were introduced to the owner of this small gem of a restaurant by our host at Weekend a Napoli, and we loved it so much we ate there three times during our short stay in Naples. The lasagne bursting with rich red tomato sauce, cheeses, sausage and mini meatballs was the first one which approximated my Brooklyn relatives' recipe from long ago. Terrific! We also had creamy risotto with mushrooms, pasta with mixed seafood and an appetizer of grilled eggplant, zucchini, pumpkin and radicchio which I loved--a far cry from the poor veggies I usually get in the States. The host also suggested we try an Easter specialty, casatiello, a savory pie full of meat and cheese which could also serve as a meal in itself. Crowning this great food fest, the warm welcome we got from the host and his English-speaking waiters made the visits memorable. They squeezed us in for Easter lunch, even though it's almost impossible to get a reservation on this holiday when everything closes early. The gracious host always went out of his way to chat with us, even on a day when they were packed. It's the Italian restaurant I always looked for and never found at home in New York.

Very small cosy restaurant with fantastic food and wine. The host is a real entertainer whose personal touch and pride in the Neopolitan food his restaurant specialises in helped make the evening we spent there a real treat.
