That's me and the second pizza I ate that weekend. I ate the whole thing. Even the crust which I usually never eat. No, folks, this is pizza in Napoli. This is pizza at da Michele. It is heaven.
The truth is we didn't have time to try other places for pizza. I went through many lists online. People recommended Starita, Sorbillo, di Matteo, Lombardi, Trianon, port'Alba... but I was too afraid to try something new. We knew we loved da Michele, so why risk eating a less than perfect pizza on one of the few nights we were there? da Michele the first night, da Michele the last night. Better safe than sorry.
Look at that menu. Just look at it! Only two pizzas offered - margherita and marinara. I've yet to try the marinara but I am sure that on a night when you don't want cheese (LOL), this will do just fine. Their sauce was amazing. And those prices. I love eating in Italy. Then again I live in Paris. I love eating anywhere else because everything is cheaper.
The other place we remembered to go back to was La Vecchia Cantina. If you scroll down in my Instagram feed (still easy now since I only have about 100 pictures) you'll find that the two first pictures are of pizza from da Michele and then the exact same thing I'm eating in the picture above. Grilled seafood. (Again, I went with what I knew and loved. I'm not that great with change, could you guess!?)
Winter. The perfect weather for cold ice-cream. Especially Gay-Odin ice-cream.
Like eating crêpes as street food in Paris... Pizza in Naples! I'm still amazed.
This was my favorite discovery. Last time we went, I didn't do any research. This time I cared. This time I read all about 'sfoglietelle calde' and how they are this really delicious warm ricotta pastry. So I tried it and holy $%&@ it is good. Oh it is GOOD. I want to recreate it. I bet I could make a version of it just using puff pastry from the shop, ricotta, candied orange... that's all I got. I'll look it up.
If you go to Naples, make sure you know where you will eat every single meal. You don't go to Naples for the city, you go for the food. Trust me.
