This Naples restaurant named among most romantic in the U.S.
Just in time for Valentine's Day, a Naples restaurant has been named among the most romantic in the country.
Truluck's on Fourth Avenue South in downtown Naples made Tripadvisor's list of 100 most romantic restaurants in America for 2020.
It's one of 13 locations for the chain, which has two other Florida restaurants: in Fort Lauderdale and Miami.
The Naples restaurant opened in 2004 and serves a menu of locally sourced seafood, including seasonal Florida stone crabs, pre-cracked for convenience. It's ranked No. 23 out of 656 restaurants in Naples, according to Tripadvisor.
Two other Truluck's locations also made the list, one in Austin, Texas, and the other in La Jolla, California.
The Naples restaurant has 184 pages of TripAdvisor reviews, dating back to 2006. Many online reviewers remarked it was a high-end spot for special occasions.
"Had a wonderful anniversary meal here and will be back. The entire team was fabulous," J0hnPM10 from Boston, wrote in January.
"A very special celebration, enjoyed by all!" InternationalSuz from Naples wrote in December.
"Beautiful ambiance and enticing menu. Nice wine selection as well. Make this a destination for your next trip," Sammyfoodcritic wrote in December.
Naples Daily News and Fort Myers News-Press food critic Jean Le Boeuf visited Truluck's in 2007 and said pretty much the same thing.

"Throughout the night, our server was genuinely helpful and eager to please. The moment a plate was finished, there was someone there to clear it from the table. And the flow of food and wine was impeccable. Fresh seafood, succulent steaks and stellar service — for a special occasion, Truluck's is worth the drive and the money," Le Boeuf wrote.
The critic also gave it four out of four stars in food, atmosphere and service.
Truluck's is at 698 Fourth Ave. S., Naples. Hours are 5 to 10 p.m. daily. For reservations, call 239-530-3131 or visit trulucks.com/reserve.
