Pizzeria Pellone

Popular among Neapolitans, lesser-known by tourists, Pellone is the perfect place to get to know what a local modern pizzeria feels like, and a great occasion to mingle with locals and some well-informed fellow visitor at a common table. The staff has a loud, easy-going personality and will serve you huge pizzas at reasonable prices.


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.
