About Alexander Bernard

Alexander’s Restaurant is a hidden jewel in the heart of Naples. Chef Alexander Bernard has been serving his distinctive cuisine to Neapolitans and visitors from throughout the world for more than 25 years, and has an avid following. His innovative, farm to table organic dishes reflect his annual California sabbaticals and his traditional European training. The Johnson & Wales graduate is known for menu favorites such phyllo-wrapped fried shrimp, macadamia nut crusted grouper, and seafood risotto with chunks of Maine lobster, scallops and shrimp. Classics such as crispy duck with lingon berries, veal tenderloin and Steak Au Poivre share the page with pasta and vegetarian dishes. Seasonal healthful menus and Chef Alex’s sell-out cooking classes enhance the culinary offerings. The perfect ending to a meal at Alexander’s is a delicious housemade dessert. A European-style dining room and an award-winning, pet-friendly garden patio accommodate diners for lunch and dinner during the Naples season, from September through May.

About Marco Bronzini

At age sixteen Marco Bronzini was introduced to British sculptor John Skeaping, and he went from provincial Beaucaire, his hometown in the South of France, to London, England, the art world center in the mid 1970’s.  He was accepted with a four year scholarship to the Royal Academy of Arts in London in 1975 and within the next few years he would meet people like the Astors and great art collectors like Paul Mellon.
