On a side street, just one street away from all the "tourist" restaurants (you know what I mean) is this gem Our hotel suggested this - "Tell them Luigi sent you" (not sure of his name, I think it was Luigi!) Excellent Margarita pizza; then our server, who was very friendly came by with a "free-bie" a taste of fried mozzarella with tomatoes, Yum. We went there another night, and our server recognized us and gave us another taste of a different dish - pasta with white beans (pasta y fagioli) but done very well, in fact I chose it for dinner. My husband had a specialty of the area, a pasta with meat and onions. The desserts were great, and always the Limoncello. This is a smaller restaurant, but always full of Italians. We hope no tourists ever find it!

Had a family dinner here for four. Huge servings whether you order pizza, salad or meat. The best tomatoes I've ever tasted. This restaurant has been here since the 1850s and the food speaks for itself. The veal scallopine and salad caprese were excellent.

Nobody who works here cares about what they are doing! Avoid this place like the plague!!!!

The plastic tables are so awfully battered and disguised in clothes that our table nearly collapsed under the slightest weight!!! We then ordered our pizzas and coffee only to be told that there was no coffee available... no reason given, no alternative offered.
The pizza dough was raw still around the crust as the base at parts was over 2inch thick which sounds crazy but was sadly true!

The WORST experience was seeing the waiters openly shouting and segueing with each other and being ignored as I called for attention at one point so even shouted for the waiters attention as he walked by but so guess he was to busy being angry with his colleagues to care about us!!!!

Terrible experience and will NEVER return here or recommended!

Thank Anthony H

Goodmorning Sir,
It's funny to see that your first review on TripAdvisor is for us, and is so bad. I'm sorry, but i don't agree with you, as a lot of customers who choose us every day. Our pizza is among the best in the city, as you could notice in the enthusiastic eyes of other customers around you and from all the certifications we collected in all these years of hard working. Our restaurant is part of Historical Places of Italy, and it's not a case. Complaints about service don't go further, if you don't consider the spontaneity of Neapolitan People.
Best regards,
Ristorante Pizzeria Mattozzi.
