    Great recommendations

    We just returned from Naples, FL and used the Frommer's Florida 08. We basically used only Ch 10 for the area around Naples and Ch 1 for the 'best of' sections. This book gave great recommendations for dining-Yabba Island Grill and Cheeburger Cheeburger for example. We have 3 boys and at Yabba Island Grill there was something for everyone. Actually everywhere we ate, recommended by the book or not, was great! We also stayed at the Bellasera partly based on the review of this book and were completely pleased with our stay. The only improvement I'd say the book needed is to include restaurant and accommodation indices and a little more complete general index. The book is not too big to carry around.
