The southern Italian city of Naples dates back to the 2BC. Famous for its architecture and southern Italian style, this beautiful city is also well worth a trip for its food. The Culture Trip looks beyond just pizza and pasta and picks the best local restaurants Naples has to offer.
Opened in 2007, Palazza Petrucci has become a well-known establishment within Naples. Located only a short distance from the San Domenico Maggiore church this restaurant is centrally situated and perfect for those who wish to eat in the bustling heart of Naples. Courses are based on traditional Neapolitan dishes with a focus on fresh local produce. The menu boast favourites such as risotto with clams, and apricot lamb served with pecorino cheese and mint. As expected, pizza and pasta make an appearance, and some say they are the best in Naples.
Naples is famous for its pizza, and Da Michele serves some of the best. Opened in 1906, this restaurant was established by the Condurro family and still belongs to them today. Shrouded with a deep family history, it is described as ‘the sacred temple of pizza’, and has spent generations perfecting the art while paying homage to Italian tradition. A true taste of Naples.
