Wine & food tour of Naples
Take a break from the museums, galleries and various walking itineraries that Naples and the entire Amalfi coast have to offer, take a seat in one of the many restaurants and pizzerias along the road and enjoy a taste of the best produce this area has to offer.
We suggest starting your Neapolitan menu with a good mixed fried fish, better still if served in one of the traditional "cuoppi", followed by a first course topped with a meat or fish sauce such as spaghetti with clams or maccheroni with Neapolitan sauce, which has nothing to envy of its Bolognese counterpart since it takes a very long time to cook.
Main courses especially include peppered mussels or fried mullet, better still if everything is accompanied by a portion of parmesan aubergines or potato gateau; for cheese lovers, on the other hand, we recommend a good scamorza or an excellent caciocavallo, choosing between sweet or piquant.
Meals are truly enjoyed with a fine glass of wine such as Greco di Tufo DOC, Taurasi DOCG and Fiano di Avellino or even Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio.
This brings us to desserts – strictly traditional Neapolitan pastries such as a good rum baba, "riccia" or "liscia" puff pastry filled with ricotta cheese candied fruit, or Pintauro, the most famous pastry in Naples, or even struffoli (but only during Christmas festivities). Nor should we forget the queen of all cakes: Pastiera, made with ricotta, cooked wheat and orange flower essence.
This culinary break closes of course with a fine coffee. Coffee in Naples is a full scale work of art but especially a convivial occasion best enjoyed in one of the many typical places in the centre, such as the historic Gambrinus coffee bar.
