Another food spot nearby the Galleria Umberto I is a small stand displaying colorful sweets. The handwritten pastry labels add charm to this simple place. Since there are no seating areas, take your treats to go and stroll around the Galleria while you eat. Here I tried a Zeppola, a fried, cream-filled pastry dough topped with powdered sugar and cherries.
In the end it’s a matter of taste and yet if you’re in Naples it’s an experience not to be missed. More of a gelato place than a chocolate shop. I got 2 flavours without panna for €2 and it was so delicious I wanted to cry. The pistachio won it for me; it was a bit salty and that gave it an amazing kick. The small one was just the right size for me because I have a smaller appetite but if you like giant American sized scoops, go for the €3.50 one with 3 flavours. They’ve also perfected the art of liquid nitrogen ice cream.
Already since several years my favourite pizzeria in Naples – on the menu one can find both delicious classics and some novelties with a twist. The food was good, we were lucky as there was no queue when we arrived. Pizza was really nice, but probably not worth queuing for hours. There was no salad options on the menu, I would have enjoyed some side salad.
Fantasia Gelati provides a gelato fantasy for all who enter its colorful Naples gelato shops.

Here is another historic pastry shop in which several generations preserve their family’s traditions. So this establishment has been alive for over a century.

The story of Mennella gelato makers has its origins in 1969 and the business that now counts 5 spots around Naples, is currently run by the second generation. Here, gelato making is a form of art, using the best local ingredients and thanks to their masterful technique their product is a work of art with divine taste. I used to really love this place, but this trip it disappointed me a little.
The ice cream seemed a let down, the people weren’t as friendly on this visit, and the price seemed high for what we got. It’s only my memories from years ago that keep me from giving this shop only 3 stars. Antonio & Antonio is a great restaurant with an extensive menu of wood-fired pizzas and calzones, as well as seasonal specialties. It’s one of the best restaurants in Naples on the seafront, and it has an amazing view over the Gulf of Naples. The service is impeccable, and the quality of the products is superb.
Skip the cone and eat your gelato stuffed inside a brioche sandwich. Ascend Naples’ biggest hill by foot or metro if you want to sit while eating your gelato. Fantasia provides seating at its Vomero location.
