I enjoyed reading about your time in Naples. It was nice that you could see it at a little more relaxed pace. We had to rush with just under three days.

So, how does the pizza at Spaccanapoli stack up to, say, Sorbillo (which I really liked)?

ms_go, Spaccanapoli's owner studied the art of pizza making at di Matteo. His crusts aren't as fine as Sorbillo's but overall the pizza is quite good, especially if you stick to the basic bufalina and margherita. I'm not too fond of the pizzas with lots of toppings.


I definitely recommend a trip into the city to try some. Let me know when you're coming.

Thanks, Marija. It's been on my destination list ever since we visited Naples five years ago. We live about 40 miles west and, sadly, don't get into the city very often anymore (I worked in Chicago for 15 years and miss it--well, not the commuting in/out part). We will get there one of these days!

We are coming in next Sunday night (5th) for a concert at the Vic, which isn't too far way. Weather and other factors permitting, this might be an option--otherwise, it will be next year I'll post here later in the week if it looks like that's possible.

Loving your report! Far too few of the Italy reports here have a "Seventh Day in Naples" entry. or even a "Fifth.." Or a "Third ...".
Looking forward to the rest of your trip.

Marija- Just found this while researching for an upcoming trip to Naples. THANK YOU! Like you, I always try to travel well armed with more restaurant choices than I need. You've added to my arsenal.

To Marija-- I'm happy you got out of Naples alive and in one piece! You didn't get mugged or assaulted! I AM PISSED at all those crums that belittle Naples. I have gone there every year for the past twenty, and I have NEVER been in a dangerous situation. Those crybabies that knock Naples probably have not ever been there. The people of Naples are the most generous and outgoing people on earth. I'm glad that you had so many adventures there. As I said, I go there every year, and every year I find something new. For my part, there are only three cities on earth where I would live-- Naples, Paris and New York, in that order. Incidentally, if I had to live in Naples, I would love to live near Piazza Amadeo.

I'm so glad I happened upon your TR. I'm going to Naples solo in May for 3 nights. I'm staying in the Chiaia area. I've made note of the pizzeria's you mentioned and the pasticceria's as well. It sounds like we both have a sweet tooth. Do you have any photos to share?

Great report. We'll be in Naples in Sept and on San gennaro Day. Actually glad to read it didn't disrupt the city.

We are at the end of our trip to Italy and back in Naples for two days. We used this report when we got here and will review it yet again. Thanks for such a great report!
