What to taste during your vacation in Naples?
- Sfogliatella riccia or frolla: it is a wrap of dough filled with ricotta, semolina and candied. It is a perfect dessert for breakfast, after the first bite you won’t be able to stop eating it!
- Babà: simple dessert composed of really soft leavened dough soaked in rum and sugar. Neapolitans say that this is the only desserts you can eat after a big lunch.
- Pizza: There is no more symbolic and representative food for the city of Naples than a pizza. We suggest you to choose a simple one with few ingredients and to taste it on the roads or inside some of the typical pizzerias on stone tables.
- Spaghetti with clams: it is a dish of fish considered the king of the Neapolitan cooking. Spaghetti are the typical dish for Sunday and for Christmas Eve.
- Casatiello: a tasty and rich salty pizza filled with cheeses, ready-cut meat and eggs. This dish is made during Easter holidays.
- Neapolitan coffee: tight, strong and hot as the real Neapolitans.
- Struffoli: small balls of fried dough rolled in honey. They are crunchy outside and soft inside, struffoli are present in all bakeries during Christmas holiday.
- Fried fish and the octopus “alla luciana”: Naples is a city on the sea so a crunchy frying with small fishes of the Gulf won’t miss in your itinerary.
- Pastiera: it is a shell of dough filled with cream and wheat. A dessert only for strong palates.
- Genovese and ragù: they are two dishes with a meat base, the first one has onions and the second one tomato sauce. We suggest to try them in the typical taverns of the city.
