My family went to the Eurasia Restaurant in Naples and found from our stop at the elaborate Bar and then dinner we had a memorable experience. Tom, the bartender/partner helped us chose delicious drinks at the Bar and was very personable. Then Dinner was exceptional with such fine foods, both Italian and tasty vietnamese choices. We enjoyed the dinner music which added to the plesant atmosphere. We will return to Eurasia for other enjoyable evenings. We would recommend it to others.

I am a frequent at Eurasia Restaurant. From what I've learned the owners are Italian. So how would that make him a North Vietnamese soldier? The food is amazing, and the location is building rapidly. Anyone looking for great food, and great service this is the place

I just read the article from the Marco Eagle. It states that the Owner is indeed Italian. The last names Marchese and Mancini dont sound to Vietnamese to me.

I also know both owners for many years and they are Tom Marchese/Bartender and Ettore Mancini/Chef. They planned this restaurant for a long time. Both Italian. Get your facts straight Vet before you mouth off. By the way, if you are a veteran, thank you for your service but again, get your facts straight before you try to smear a top notch restaurant.

We were vacationing in Naples, Fla. and Eurasia was highly recommended to us by our friends that live in the area. We met one of the owners, Tom Marchese, who served us drinks at the beautiful bar. He made some excellent recommendations. We started with the grilled shrimp and pork and calamari with marina sauce...Wonderful!!! The eggplant parmigiana was magnificent!Kudos to Chef Ettore Mancini,who is partners with Tom Marchese. Everything was so fresh, The presentation was beautiful and the food was outstanding! The wait staff were very friendly and accommodating!
Thanks for a terrific dinner!

Mt facts are straight, Tom manages the restaurant, and Ettore assists him, the actual owner who you never see is a Viet Nameese.Again good fod, but do you care to support those who killed our sons.

Sorry Vet, but your facts are not straight. I think you have a mental problem and should probably consult a psychologist. The owners are Tom Marchese and Ettore Mancini. Tom Tran is just a chef. So before you start running your mouth again, go talk to someone and take your hatred out with them. Tom Tran is from South Vietnam, isn't that the side we fought for?

Your havent got a clue do you, Tom( not his real name) Tran is North VietNameese, ths side we traded shots with, the side that took 53 thousand American lives. He is infact the owner, the other two claim to be, but arent. Eat there, support those that cost American youth so much. Go visit a VA hospital you dispicable scum bag

Like I said Vet. You have a mental problem and have no clue about Eurasia Restaurant. I do eat there and know everyone very well. You are making up false facts about the restaurant. Tom Marchese and Ettore Mancini are the owners and have been planning on opening a restaurant for several years. So please stop writing false facts about them. They have worked very hard to build this restaurant and do not need mental people spreading false facts about them.......You are the despicable scum bag. I know a lot of people who fought in Vietnam and support anyone who puts their life on the line for the rest of us. You need to be put in a mental institution, you are not a stable person......Plus you need to learn how to spell.

I know for a fact, Vet, that Tom Marchese and Ettore Mancini are the owners. Tom Marchese works the bar. Ettore Mancini is a chef. Tom Tran is not an owner. Tom Tran is a chef. These are simple sentences. I hope you understand them. Before you go around making up false accusations (lies) about people and places, get your facts straight! Thank you. And by the way, I hear the food at Eurasia is just superb! Can't wait to visit!

I fought in Viet Nam myself with the 5th Special Forces, check Collier County records, the zip is the owner, his money got the place running, and you sir, are the scum bag.

Anybody that wants to eat in this restaurant should go eat there and check it out for themselves.

Anybody who wants to spread lies and tries to defame the restaurant owners should get a life.

I have a life, I guess you dont care about the lifes taken by Viet Cong. Believe what you will, ask Tom, (not his real name of course) where his money came from. He is not South VietNameese.
