This cheerful trattoria seems to be run for the sheer pleasure of it. Try the excellent fish or the traditional (but cooked with a lighter modern touch) pasta dishes, especially those with verdura (fresh leaf vegetables) or with potatoes and smoked mozzarella (pasta e patate con la provola). Close to Teatro San Carlo and aptly decorated with playbills and theatrical memorabilia, both ancient and modern, this is an excellent place to stop after a visit to the opera. Look for the entrance almost immediately on the right as you go up Via Nardones from Piazza Trieste e Trento—ring the bell outside to be let in.
