Naples Guide

September 12, 2016

Naples is a foodie heaven! And I wish I had a bigger stomach to fit all the delicious food this city has to offer. Here are my food and shopping experiences in Naples. It's shorter than my Rome recommendations because we had an Airbnb apartment here and we made our own food to take advantage of the fresh produce from our nearby market.

Pizzeria Concettina - (Via Arena della Sanità, 7 Bis, 80137 Napoli,) It was a crime not to come here especially when it was a short walk from our Airbnb apartment. Our Airbnb host also recommended this restaurant so we obviously followed his advice. A love the comfortable feel of this restaurant and they have the friendliest staff. Pizza was soo good! A true Neapolitan pizza. 
Pasticceria Poppella - (Loved the Fiocchi di Neve, the so called snow balls (a fluffy pastry ball filled with delicious cream). It's the best! And everything else was great too!
Antica Pizzeria e Friggitoria di Matteo - (Via dei Tribunali, 94, 80138 Naples) Bill Clinton was here! Lol! We just happen to walk by here during lunch and people were lining up outside the street. We followed suit and got the tastiest fried dough and frittatine balls. So cheap and delicious! Worth the wait and elbowing :P
Il Basilico - (Via Santa Lucia 112, Naples) This was a bad judgement call because I was hangry. We ended up here for a late lunch. The food was so-so but the service was terrible and the restaurant added extra fees to our bill. Do not recommend this place as it is a tourist trap!!!
Bar Grazziela - (Procida Island) We went to Procida on a day trip and we sat outside of this restaurant admiring the view and eating the best seafood!
Limone - (Piazza S. Gaetano, 72 - 80138, Napoli) If you want to buy limoncello then this is the place. You can sample the different limoncello's they make and also give you a tour of their factory. You will be educated on how they make their product and the ingredients they use. Great price and very friendly staff!
Luca Talarico - (Via Domenico Capitelli, 8 - 80134, Napoli) Handmade leather bags that goes back from 3 generations. Lovely shop and the owner/maker is very informative. Made inside the shop. You can actually see the owner making the bags by hand. Great prices too!


  1. Lovely photos :) looks like an awesome place

  2. That pizza looks absolutely amazing. I'll have to add this place to my destination wish list. :]

  3. I'm salivating right now... I want to try that pizza - it looks so good!

  4. That plate with different stuff on it looks really delicious.

    I still have yet to go to Naples and the whole Amalfi Coast as well - Sorrento, Positano, Salerno, Capri. Have you been here?

    By the way, I am not sure why but I cannot reply to your comments when you comment on my blog? It is disabled and this must be in your Google+ settings? Just wanted to let you know.

    1. Thank you so much for letting me know. I finally switched to google + so I hope that fixes it.

      Naples is an amazing place with a lot of great food. I enjoyed my time there so much that I didn't get a chance to visit the Amalfi Coast. You can take a lot of day trips/trips from Naples.

      I did go to Procida and that was so beautiful and less crowded. That's where I had the lunch seafood platter. Hope you get to visit soon.

    2. I still cannot reply to your comments. You will have to check this in your settings. So basically you can post but nobody can reply to you. Strange.

      Really cool you are going to Cebu! Lechon manok and baboy are EVERYWHERE. Wherever you buy it will be good =). Go to "Larsian" to experience real Cebuano barbecue/grilling food culture. The pork barbecues are sooo good.

      You have to try the "puto + mango + sikwate" at Cafe Laguna. They have 2 branches in Ayala Mall at the Terraces.

      For views, you have to go up to Nivel Hills in Lahug. "Dolce" is a cafe with nice views. Upscale restaurant "Anzani" and beside it the "Bellini Bar" both are nice places with great views. Nearby is the "Blu Bar & Grill" in Marco Polo Plaza Hotel has nice views as well.

      Then you have a more casual restaurant at the top called "Mr. A", the views here are amazing.

      We also have a lookout point at the top of the mountain called "Tops". There are no real dining area here but there is a small snack bar and store where they sell snacks.

      A new place my mom told me is the "Blue Elephant". They have just been and she promised to bring me there. The views she swore were breathtaking. Another new place that I wanted to go is the "Lantaw Native Restaurant" in Busay. Make sure you say Busay because there are other Lantaw restaurants, one in Cordova in Mactan Island and the other in SRP (along the water). Both of which I have been to =)

      A few other interesting places are "La Tegola Cucina Italiana" and "Chateau de Busay" - both upscale restaurants in the mountains.

      Anyway, do check my entries in my blog... you have to scroll way back as many of my experiences with these places are way back years ago.


      If you are going to visit Mactan island (this is where the plane lands):


Thank you for your comment. Feel free to ask me any questions.
