Bonita Springs lies to the north of Naples proper, and whereas one city virtually blends into the other, its dining scene has become part of the overall robust Naples restaurant picture. Once known for its tomato farming and commercial fishing, Bonita Springs is still all about food. In the past decade or so, its restaurant roll call has grown ever so more sophisticated. Many of its best restaurants line Bonita Beach Road, a thoroughfare that connects Interstate 75 and Highway 41 to the beach.
This list culls from a growing number of eateries the finest of Bonita Springs and neighboring Estero at its northern threshold. It brings you fine dining experiences such as Roy’s Bonita Springs, Angelina’s Ristorante and Wylds Café. It also offers some casual options such as waterfront Coconut Jack’s and Old 41 Restaurant, the latter known for its authentic Philly cuisine.
While you are visiting or living in the Naples area, the quality and quantity of restaurants make traveling the short distance to Bonita Springs worth the trip. Besides what is listed here, you will find a smattering of authentic Mexican taquerias, a casual beach shack eatery and an old Florida style seafood restaurant.
