I have been walking all day long visiting museums. Then a glass of Prosecco with some friends. Then one spritz, the second and… it’s 22:00 and I am starving.
Venice is a must-visit but for sure not for its nightlife. In particular, when I’ve got hungry and it is late in the evening, most of the restaurants are closed already and since I’m a student, I’m always on a budget, and Venetian restaurants can be very expensive sometimes. Fortunately, there is Campo Santa Margherita. It is very likely I will be already there, because it’s actually the only crowded areas where to find bars and have some fun.
Since I am always homesick, just by taking a few steps I can dive into traditional Neapolitan cuisine and eat real panuozzo, real pizza and many other Neapolitan specialties at Napul’è.
There’s everything from the classic Margherita to fried pizza (yes, you read well — it is pizza with ricotta cheese, mozzarella, ham and salami, closed and then fried). My favourite is the panuozzo filled with sausage and spicy friarielli. But there is much more: frittata di pasta (spaghetti with eggs, cheese, salami and prosciutto as a cake), meatballs with bread and eggs, and for dessert I always order a graffa (typical Neapolitan dessert).
The place is small but comfortable — it’s take-away but if you want, you can eat there, with a grassroots environment but a kindness more unique than rare!
PS: it is a good spot even for a quick lunch.
