Heading to Italy soon and looking to do your own Stanley Tucci Naples foodie tour? I’ve got you covered! Below you will find all the locations Stanley visited, the majority of which you can too.
Pizza fritta / Fried pizza
The place Stanley tried fried pizza, stuffed with ricotta, was Pizza Fritta da Fernanda – unfortunately, this Naples institution is now permanently closed as very sadly the charismatic Fernanda, who featured in the show, passed away earlier this year (you can read more about her here). An alternative place to try is Antica Pizza Fritta da Zia Esterina Sorbillo – there is likely to be a queue but I am assured it is worth the wait.
It wouldn’t be a visit to Naples without tasting an authentic pizza. Stanley sat on the balcony at Pizzeria Brandi and tucked into a margherita pizza.
Stanley then met with the famous pizzaiolo Enzo Coccia on a stunning terrace overlooking the Bay of Naples. I have managed to figure out the name of this restaurant – D’Angelo Santa Caterina – but unfortunately it is only open for weddings and other private events so it’s not somewhere you can drop by and take in the view over lunch. The good news however is that Enzo has two pizzerias in Naples: Pizzaria La Notizia 94 and Pizzaria La Notizia 53 (purple icons in the below map).
Buffalo mozzarella and tomato farms
The buffalo mozzarella producer that Stanley visited was Il Casolare – unfortunately they are not open to the public but you can enjoy the fruits of their labour in Enzo Coccia’s resturants and various other pizzerias. The tomato farm was Gustarosso – great news, they have a restaurant on site and even operate as a B&B.
The place where Stanley and the police officer picked up a coffee each – and bought a suspended one – was a coffee cart in Piazza Trieste e Trento. The coffee they had is from a traditional Neopolitan coffee jug called a cuccumella. Finally, a welcome break from eating on the Stanley Tucci Naples tour!
Chiku is the name of the amazing community food initiative that Stanley visited – I’m delighted to say the restaurant is open to the public.
The rabbit restaurant on Ischia
Trattoria il Focolare is the name of the restaurant that serves rabbit – from reading the reviews of this place, it isn’t just Stanley that is enamoured. It sounds like it is well worth the journey.
Zucchini spaghetti on the Amalfi Coast
Lo Scoglio is the name of the restaurant where the chef taught Stanley and Felicity how to make their beloved zucchini/courgette spaghetti.
Lemon delight dessert
The sumptuous delizia al limone that Stanley sampled was at the pastry shop of its inventor: Pasticceria Sal De Riso in the village of Minori on the Amalfi Coast
I hope this article helps you to coordinate your very own Stanley Tucci Naples tour – buon appetito!
