Tasted the tiramisu, must try! From the freezer so icey/semifreddo taste. Bellissimo! Also small cannoli and baba were nice :-)

I was originally born in Naples, on my first time back after I initially left as a young teenager (now 49) my first visit upon my return was to Carraturo. It was incredible as everything tastes just like 35 years ago. I had to be dragged out of there or I would have practically eaten everything in sight.
The place is right in the historic part of town where you can appreciate the beauty of arquitecture and of the folks that live there.

The first good impression of this bakery were the nice people working there and the locals that were rotating in & out buying goodies. Sfogliatelle was my mission in Naples and the bakeries here didn't disappoint.

We wanted to taste the shell-shaped Italian pastry sfogliatella with some espresso and we thought it was delicious. We sat in front of the eatery but most locals simply order their food as takeaways. The place is in the heart of the historic centre so grab some sfogliatella or baba with whipped cream which is even more delicious and watch the tourists walk past and the locals go about their business. Price is very reasonable. Watch out for beggars and pickpockets, as the area is notorious for petty crimes.

I recently visited a gelateria in Piazzetta Nilo in Spaccanapoli with a similar name and gave it a review thinking that it belonged to the same family (Carraturo) that owns this gelateria in Corso Garibaldi near Via Casanova. I was wrong. This gelateria, i.e. the Antica Pasticceria Carraturo" was the same one (across the old Cinema Gloria) where my father used to take me almost every school day in the early 50's for cappuccino e cornetto before saying good bye for the day (he to work and I to school). I have gone back to visit my hometown at least once a year for the last 40 years and, when I can, I always stop here (last time in December 2015). It was great then and it is still great now. More than that, it is part of my life memories. Saluti Sig. Vittorio.
