La Pescheria, a new Italian seafood restaurant, has opened its doors at 474 5th Avenue South.

La Pescheria, Italian for seafood market, creates the environment of a traditional Italian seafood restaurant where customers can choose from a wide array of fresh fish and catch. Servers and chefs then give recommendations on the best way to cook the selected seafood dish. Every fish is deboned at the table and can be cooked in three ways: grilled, baked and rock salt.

La Pescheria is owned by the same family who opened Molto Trattoria, another Italian favorite on 5th Avenue. Molto serves fresh and authentic Italian cuisine and is located a few doors down at 368 5th Avenue South.

Owner of La Pescheria, Francesca Neri, says the team “decided that Naples would be an ideal location for this new restaurant because of its experienced, international clientele. We are passionate about introducing new tastes and new ways of eating to our customers. La Pescheria gives guests an authentic Italian experience, and we think it will be a great addition to 5th Avenue South.”

La Pescheria is transcending the dining experience by combining a seafood market and restaurant. It’s a completely unique concept to 5th Avenue and the Naples culinary scene at large.

“It’s incredible to see 5th Avenue restauranteurs expand their businesses on the Avenue, especially one as unique as La Pescheria. Their growth demonstrates the viability of their existing businesses and the attractiveness of opening a new concept on 5th Avenue,” says Executive Director of the 5th Avenue South Business Improvement District, Bruce Barone, Jr.
