Taverna dell’Arte

13 Jul


1° Rampe di San Giovanni Maggiore

For the genuine
cuisine of Naples
in a warm and
charming atmosphere.

On a small side street near the main
university, this comfortable trattoria is
one of the finest genuine Neapolitan
restaurants in the city. It specialises in
interpretations of typical Campania
dishes, such as cabbage soup, la Genovese
sauce and cod-in-a-saucepan. Before the
second course, you are served a crushed
ice basil drink – sensational! Neapolitan
desserts, such as babas and crunchy
almond cookies called quaresimali,
are taken with homemade liqueurs. The
place is popular with actors and artists,
but remains refreshingly unpretentious.


Il Pizzaiolo del Presidente

13 Jul


Via dei Tribunali 120/121

A place of taste and
vitality, the favourite
of a famous patron.

In July 1994, an American tourist came
to Pizzeria Cacialli, one of the city’s top
pizzerias. His name was Bill Clinton,
President of the United States; he promptly
declared this one of his all-time
favourite places. From then on it became
known as Il Pizzaiolo del Presidente.
The restaurant enjoys a cult following
amongst the locals, a sure sign of its
authentic quality, and greets you with
the kind of aroma, raucousness and
colour that only Naples can bring.

Pizzeria Sorbillo

13 Jul


Via dei Tribunali 32

Pizza was invented
in Naples. This third
generation family
makes the classics.

Gino Sorbillo founded his pizzeria in
1935. The third generation Sorbillo
family now has 21 sons – and they are all
pizzaioli. One of the great exponents of
the classic Naples staple, the restaurant
produces 21 types of pizza, each signed
with the name of the son who created it.
With its marble tables and traditional
wood and copper fittings, and on two levels,
Pizzeria Sorbillo is a favourite meeting
place for a cosmopolitan mix of students
and professionals, local Neapolitans, and tourists.
