Napoli

Lot’s of visitors to Italy skip over Naples, heading straight for the Amalfi Coast, squandering precious culinary opportunities in the process. Naples has one of the best food cultures in the country and its specialties scratch nearly every imaginable gastronomic itch. Here are some places I love in one of the best cities on the planet to eat:
