You Review food: Kenneth Siefers

What is your favorite restaurant?

Campiello’s, on Third. The atmosphere is really nice, it is my hang-out spot in Naples. Sometimes I go there just for a drink. Sometimes they have live music, which I enjoy. All the bartenders know my name now! The Olde English Pub is good, too. It’s out of the way, so it’s mostly permanent residents that eat there. They have a great English menu.

What is your favorite lunch spot?

My number one favorite is 5th Avenue Coffee Shop, I’m always here with a half sandwich and soup, just relaxing. The paninis are great. My second favorite would be Sunburst Café on Pine Ridge. They have great soup, and I like that they serve breakfast all day. I occasionally go to Starbucks for their mocha frappuccino, but I think it is too expensive for what you get. Their food isn’t very good, either; it isn’t fresh, like at Sunburst.

What qualities do you look for in a good restaurant?

Most people, especially older people like me, want to eat early, want to get a quick bite of good food and then go home and watch television. They focus on the food, not the atmosphere. Not me. I like the atmosphere, the experience. P.F. Chang’s is good for that. The Chinese food is good, but that isn’t what’s most important. They have a great atmosphere. If the food takes a little longer to prepare in a restaurant, I don’t mind. I just like to sit, sip wine and have good conversation. Sometimes it can take two to three hours, but that’s what I like about it.
