What to Eat in Naples, Italy

The Naples dining scene in one word? Pizza. Made with San Marzano tomatoes and mozzarella Campana, Margherita pizza was invented in Naples – according to lore, at Pizzeria Brandi – but it's a staple throughout the city. For another great taste of the Neapolitan original, visit L'Antica Pizzeria da Michele

Other delectable foods can be found at Spaccanapoli, a street located adjacent to Christmas Alley. Spaccanapoli is home to Neapolitan specialties like frittatina (fried pasta served with tomato sauce and cheese) and cakes, such as ricotta-stuffed sfogliatella, orange-infused pastiera and rum-flavored baba. And for a cool treat on a warm night, try any one of the gelato cafes that ring Naples' Mergellina Bay. 

Along with pizza and gelato, coffee is another Italian specialty you won't want to miss while in Naples. Caffè Mexico and Gran Caffè Gambrinus are among the city's most beloved coffee bars. (Down an espresso at the bar to experience coffee like a true Italian.) While you're at it, check out granita – a refreshing drink usually made with fruit, syrups and ice, which is also said to have originated in Naples. You can find it at nearly every cafe in the city, especially those that border the water.
