Bistro 821 sandwiched between Chops and other eateries that dot the historic landscape of historic Olde Naples is where East meets West. White tablecloths, candles and beautiful artwork surround you as you dine. This is a hip and happening place. Start out with calamari, baked brie, crab dip or grilled jumbo prawns. Nut and berry, goat cheese, spinach and gorgonzola, market tomato, caesar and house round out your salad options. On the pasta selections try the seafood risotto chocked full of shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels and tomato concasse, basil and pecorino romano cheese.
