Best restaurants in Naples Italy – In Naples you can eat good food everywhere and this is where you come to find truly special pizza! To help you we’ve compiled our list of the Best Restaurants and Pizzerias in Naples where you can try true Neapolitan Specialities.
Best restaurants in Naples Italy
Restaurant Mimì at the Railway
Restaurant Mimì is located in an alley near the Station, not the best area of Naples, but this restaurant is certainly worth a visit. It’s a historic restaurant in Naples, decorated in a classic style and often attended by celebrities. Prawns are among the restaurant’s specialties and not to be missed!
Pizzeria Vesi in Piazza Costantinopoli
There are others that get more fanfare, but Pizzeria Vesi is where I had the best pizza in Naples. The Restaurant is in the area called Spaccanapoli and is attended by tourists and students alike. Soft dough and lots of fun.
Pizzeria by Michele
Pizzeria da Michele is in the historic center in Via Sersale and it’s the most famous pizzeria in Naples. The pizzeria was famously featured in the movie “Eat Pray Love” with Julia Roberts and supposedly the actress ate ten pizzas during the recording.
The restaurant is spartan and they serve up only two kinds of pizza: Margherita and Marinara. Even though they have shared tables, since it’s so popular with tourists, the wait times are quite long. While I do think the pizza is very good, the restaurant is just too crowded and doesn’t quite live up to all the hype.
Pizzeria La Notizia al Vomero
If you want to get away from the Neapolitan chaos, then you need to head over to the Vomero area. Here you’ll find the Pizzeria “La Notizia” which has been featured in the Michelin guide. It is simple but has a very nice style both in the choice of the menu and ingredients. The traditional Pizzeria is located in Via Michelangelo da Caravaggio 53 and at number 94 is where you’ll find the gourmet Pizzeria.
On the same street you can find “O’Sfizio d ‘a Notizia” where you can have tasty treats. The owner Enzo Coccia is a master of pizza and quite often seen on TV.
Trattoria O’Cerriglio in Piazza Dante
In the historic center is where you’ll find one of my favorite places, Tattoria O’Cerriglio. The pizza is the classic Neapolitan style and the fried foods are amazing, especially the stuffed pumpkin flowers. The menu is rich both meat and sea dishes and has something for everyone!
Trattoria Da Nennella in the Spanish Quarter
Located near the Toledo Metro stop in an alley closed to traffic, it doesn’t get any more Neapolitan than Trattoria Da Nennella. The food is home-made, the pasta with potatoes and provola is very good and very cheap, only about 15 euros, entrée and service included. Much better if you reserve a table in advance especially on Saturday evening. Not to be missed.
