Right in the bustling center of Naples is Trattoria Campania, a restaurant with a warm family atmosphere. The design is a bit retro, even outdated, but they don’t pretend in Trattoria Campania. They respect the past and tradition and are not ashamed of it.
This is a Neapolitan restaurant, so of course, you can find Neapolitan pizza on the menu. Besides pizza, the kitchen also focuses on traditional and local dishes. The work is mainly with fresh fish and meat, all from fresh produce from the region.
For those who eat seafood, it is highly recommended to try spaghetti with oysters—pasta with slow-cooked lamb and tomato and onion ragout, Neapolitan pork sausage, and fried calamari. The menu is particularly long and offers a dish of meatballs in tomato sauce, fried sardines, and various desserts.
For the benefit of those who prefer to avoid meat and fish, there are vegetarian dishes on the menu.
The place does not allow reservations in advance (a matter of tradition. They used to not book in advance either), so the site’s popularity means that a line gathers in front of the door quite quickly. To beat the queue, you should arrive relatively early, even if you are not completely hungry yet, and build on the fact that the appetite will already come with the food.
Lunch at Trattoria Campanella is served from 12:30 to 16:00. The place reopens at 7:00 p.m. and feeds customers until 11:30 p.m., making Campanile a legitimate late-night snack option. The price of an average meal per person is 20 euros.
