A huge authentic pizza (which comes in several mouth-watering flavors) in a great restaurant, oozing with lots of mozzarella and tomato sauce, can be really sublime. It's one experience that can be enjoyed alone or in the company of friends or family members. There are many pizzerias that get the thumbs up from pizza-loving travelers. In Naples, there are cheap but tasty pizza places and trendier restaurants serving other delicious treats. There are also family-run restaurants that serve good Italian cuisine.
