Mimì alla Ferrovia

Since its opening in 1943, this bustling restaurant has been an institution in Naples: frequented by famous writer and actor Eduardo de Filippo, Mimì alla Ferrovia has also hosted well-known guests like Maradona and Michael Schumacher. It offers traditional Neapolitan dishes such as spaghetti with clams and ravioli with seabass.


Neapolitans believe their cuisine to be among the finest in the world. The best way to decide if you agree with them is by tasting some of the local specialities, which include pasta recipes (with the 'pummarola' tomato sauce, or 'alla puttanesca' with olives and capers), typical pastries like babà or sfogliatella, and of course, an authentic pizza, which made its appearance in Naples over 500 years ago. Neapolitan cuisine proudly uses modest ingredients such as oil, pecorino cheese, and aromatic herbs to convey its typical Mediterranean taste.
