Antica Pizzeria Da Michele
For many Neapolitans "Pizza" is equivalent to saying "From Michele ", historical pizzeria of the city also appeared in the film with Julia Roberts "Eat, pray, love". From Michele there is not a vast choice: o Margherita o Marinara, as tradition dictates, with a recipe is strictly classic, and taste and lightness are practically unsurpassed. The row here is always very long, sometimes it will be necessary to wait even more than an hour to eat on huge planks together with many other people, in the name of Neapolitan conviviality. Once your pizza has been consumed, there will not be time to exchange opinions, with a good chance you will be "kindly" invited to free up the place. But the appetite will be more than satisfied.
