The day after Christmas, we made our way to Naples again for more pizza. Being just an hour away from the birthplace of pizza, we had to make the most of it. You can have a peak at my first day trip to Naples here, and then also have a squiz at my Napoli post from 2012 here.
We reached the port just after midday and headed straight to Sorbillo Pizzeria. The restaurant is situated on a corner of the promenade and to the right of the castle (if you are looking out to the sea), with plenty of outdoor seating. I had previously visited the other Sorbillo restaurant in the middle of the city two years ago, with these guys being known for their traditional style Neapolitan pizza. This location is a lot bigger, so the turnover of tables is a lot quicker. Italy put on a glorious afternoon and we basked in the sun whilst ordering a mixture of pizzas and drinks. The ingredients are purely sourced from the area, and consist of fresh mozzarella di bufala, and cherry tomatoes grown in the high mineral soil of Mount Vesuvius. Eating our body weight in food, we went for a walk along the promenade to help digest and look out over Naples and the sea and finished off with espressos in a little bar along the way.
La vita e bella! xxx
