Cibi Cotti Nonna Anna

An actual life hack for tasting tons of typical food in Naples while on a budget is having your lunch break at Nonna Anna. This old-fashioned canteen, hidden inside a covered city market, doesn't provide table service, but it is a favourite among locals and offers delicious home-cooked food at an incredible value for money.


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.
