Tasty pizza at this location of a worldwide chain.

Directions: Very close to Castel Nuovo

Fratelli la Bufala is a chain restaurant serving Naples-style pizza, but we did not know that when we ate here. We went on our first night in Naples - it was just up the street from our apartment.

The place was full of locals including two large parties. The restaurant specializes in mozzarella di bufala, and there are many dishes on the menu including this regional cheese. We started with a dish of it sliced and fried that was just OK. At the table next to us, many were eating giant balls of the cheese in it's natural state - that looked better.

We then split one huge, also delicious, margherita pizza. We had a bottle of house red and to finish (also to keep Colleen awake because it was her first night in Italy) we each had a grappa di Falanghina. Falanghina is a local white wine grape, and the grappa made out of it is really good.

With coperto and water, the bill was 29.30 euros.

We had a less successful meal at the Fratelli la Bufala in Pompei. The food was still good, but there was some weird stuff going on (some guy pocketing all the money, they would not serve us the delicious grappa di Falanghina, all in all a very weird experience.) But I can recommend this location without hesitation.
