One of the oldest and most typical pizzerias in Naples the family-owned L'Antica Pizzeria da Michele has been churning out delicious pizza since 1870. The pies here are traditional Neapolitan style: a high-contour, fluffy crust lightly topped with simple, fresh ingredients. With marble tables and wooden chairs, the restaurant looks rather plain, but its warm, fun atmosphere will immediately make you feel welcome — and allow you to focus on the most important thing: pizza!
La Notizia is a modern pizzeria, visually distinguishable by the funny chairs that decorate its walls. The Neapolitan-style pizza here is light and very, very, very tasty, but there is much more to La Notizia than its pizzas. The menu is extensive, and all — even the fried menu items — are delicious.
Since 1901, Starita a Materdei has served delicious dishes, great wine, and, of course, Neapolitan-style pizza! This is some of the best pizza you can find, and the options are many: Think choices like zucchini flowers and zucchini, radicchio and gorgonzola, or walnut pizza.
The most famous cafe in Naples is Gambrinus — a charming, local, finely decorated feast for the eyes as well as the palate. Large, crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling, and the walls are adorned with paintings and brass lamps. If you come to Gambrinus, though, it's not is not just to sit under chandeliers, but to enjoy one of the best cups of coffee in Naples.
Naples cuisine is famous not only for pizza and fried food, but also for fantastic, delicious pastries such as sfogliatella (cake filled with cream or cottage cheese), baba (sponge cake dipped in rum), and pastiera (a very sweet cake made with wheat and ricotta cheese). If you like pastries, you can't miss the Antico Forno delle Sfogliatelle Calde Fratelli Attanasio, where you'll have a chance to try one of the best-made sfogliatelle in Naples.
If you are not hungry enough for a big meal, or you want to take a mid-afternoon break, Friggitoria Vomero is your choice! This restaurant offers a huge variety of fried foods for all tastes, appetites, and budgets. Here, you can try salt cod croquettes, Neapolitan sandwiches, and fried pizzas. In the restaurant you'll eat standing and using a bag of paper in place of a plate but the inconvenience will be rewarded by the delicious taste of what you will eat!
