Pizza is everywhere, but this unpretentious restaurant has the best you’ll find in Madrid in my opinion. Run by Italians, Piccola Napoli gives you an authentic taste of Naples at a very reasonable price. From Monday to Friday, there’s a lunch menu of pizza or pasta with a drink and dessert or coffee for 12.50 euros or 13.50 with a salad.
I found this place by chance and it was one of those finds I could not wait to share! As well as pizza, they do some spectacular pasta dishes, and the dessert menu features all the classics; tiramisu, cannolo, panna cotta… They have a few Italian wines and lambrusco (nothing fancy, but perfect to accompany pizza), Italian beers and spritzes.
OK, it isn’t really central, but I promise you’ll be happy you went the extra mile to experience it. They also deliver if you’re staying nearby or you pick it up yourself. It’s a great place for a group – I’ve had a birthday here and the service was wonderful; they catered for a celiac and a lactose intolerant friend too!
