Opened in 2008, Sea Salt earned national acclaim via Esquire magazine’s annual “best latest restaurants” list in 2009, penned by esteemed food and travel creator John Mariani, whose column now runs in Forbes.

Sea Salt, a Naples restaurant on Third Street South, is celebrating 15 years in business.

Mariani told the Day by day News, “Before Sea Salt arrived on the scene, Naples’ restaurants ranged from run of the mill to downright dull, with a slew of national chains. The Aiellis not only brought a freshness of favor and private hospitality but additionally a number of the most authentic Italian food, especially seafood, within the U.S.”

The Aiellis explained their “unbelievable journey,” feeling blessed to proceed following their passion despite several hurricanes and economic challenges, including the pandemic.

“It is tough to explain the sensation of achievement we experience when seeing team members thrive and grow with us, when patrons keep coming back to share our love for food, once we witness our impact on local causes. All those moments have made the past 15 years very special to us,” Ingrid Aielli said.
