The most Italian of cities

Conjure up any image of Italy, and you can find it in Naples, arguably the most Italian of cities. Pizza, sunshine, scooters, football, and some of the world’s greatest art, all in the shadow of Vesuvius, mainland Europe’s only active volcano. Settled by the Greeks around 470 BC, the city has had an often troubled past, and the present is not without its troubles either – however, the infamous rubbish problems have been resolved, crime figures are down, and tourism is on the up.

Pizza Expert

The simple and rustic decor makes it a familiar place, but the true specialty is the pizza, perfectly baked and following the traditional rules. It’s small and soft, and crunchy at the borders, with amazing toppings. My favorite ones are the ones with sausages, or provola cheese. They have delicious desserts too and everything is reasonably priced.

Neapolitan cuisine, as it should be Editors' Note

Founded in 1953 and still run by the Capasso family, Pizzeria Ristorante Cafasso is famous for its “Calzone stuffed with escarole,” a pizza for true connoisseurs. This, and all the other pizzas are prepared according to original recipes by the restaurant’s founder, Don Peppino.

Aside pizzas, Pizzeria Ristorante Cafasso serves up Neapolitan cuisine, all prepared with fresh ingredients. Try the delicious homemade spaghetti with clams; or the fried codfish.
