Neapolitan pastry and Campana are a flagship of our land. If you still don’t know where to eat a sfogliatella worthy of the name or should you fall into the slightest doubt as to which is the best place to do it, you can sleep peacefully. Here is the list of the five pastry shops that we believe deserve a quarter of an hour of your precious time in this city!
Exactly in front of the Circumvesuviana station of Porta Nolana, the Carraturo pastry shop is a flagship of Naples less known to most. A breakfast with a small pastry and coffee or capuccino is highly recommended before a trip to the archaeological excavations of Pompeii or Herculaneum.
The Sfogliatella, both curly and shortcrust, with the capital “S” can be eaten here, in the heart of Piazza Garibaldi. No matter where you are going, a stop at Attanasio during your stay in Naples is a moral obligation, if only for the finishing of the products it offers (and for the sfogliatella!).
Historic tarallificio of the Rione Sanità first, renomatissma pastry then, Poppella is a parenthesis that can not miss if you choose to take a walk in the neighborhood of Prince Antonio De Curtis. The Fiocco di Neve is highly recommended, a delicacy created by the Poppella pastry shop itself and which literally made Neapolitans and non-Neapolitans fall in love.
Historical Neapolitan pastry shop with several locations, the most suitable for a tourist is undoubtedly the one located in San Domenico Maggiore. Highly recommended for desserts, for excellent espresso but also for one of their specialties, the Ministerials: dark chocolate sweets filled with a soft cream liqueur.
Casa Infante is the “small house” among the Neapolitan pastry shops, but it defends itself very well by offering a huge choice of ice cream, desserts and sweet appetizers of the Neapolitan tradition revisited.
