"There's more to Napoli than the memory of Maradona."
The task of compiling a guide to Italy's third largest city is real. Where do you even begin? Choose a specific suburb and cover that first? Try a bit of everything and come to a consensus? Scour the internet for juicy tips and "insider spots"?
My approach was to wait until I had been there a few times, spent a decent amount of time, and listened to very reliable sources for recommendations. As far as things go, it's inevitable that hundreds of great places will be missed in this list because one man can only eat so much in his lifetime, but I shall try to filter out the places that stood out from the crowd and would be worth trying if you are only here for a limited time.
Pizza I already covered in my extensive huntings here so i'll just put a couple of obvious ones and leave the intrepid pizza lusters to read the more detailed blog entry.
For now we'll settle for a whole range of cultures and cuisines, cafes, parks and the odd bar even tho I gave up imbibing years ago.

These recommendations are just personal opinions based on my palate, things change, chefs get fired or replaced, places open-close, relocate, so take it all with a pinch of MSG and discover your own gems too. But please do try a few of these, they have been researched exhaustively.
