Get Your Meal to Go at These Top Naples Takeout Restaurants

Most restaurants in the Naples area will prepare your meal to go if you call ahead, but some specialize in take out, even though they have tables for in-restaurant dining. This list hand picks the best options for typical take out cuisines such as Thai, pizza and barbecue, but also includes places to get seafood, German specialties, health food and gourmet dishes to go. Many of the places, such as Black Eyed Pig barbecue, Pepper's Deli & Butcher's German cuisine and Kitchen 845, serving finely crafted Continental cuisine, are a little difficult to find, but worth the effort. Their off the beaten path locations mean they can offer the best food at the most affordable prices. 

On this list, you will find restaurants from which you can order steamed Maine lobster, homemade traditional lasagna, the "best ribs in America," bratwurst and sauerkraut, lump crab cakes with ginger basil aioli, spicy Thai tom kha soup, pulled pork atop smoked Italian sausage, fresh stone crabs, a hummus wrap and wheat grass juice and some of the best key lime pie around. The diversity of take out food in Naples is refreshing, meaning you can get together a beach picnic of the finest quality or spend your evening '"cocooning" with your favorite food.
