Munching at Mattozzi in Napoli

A happy kitchen staff is a good sign!: Photo Robert K. Stephen

Although I was in Campania for a wine/tourism media trip I can’t say how impressed I was with the food. Given that my stay was 17 days I had just one “average meal”. The rest were top notch at casual and relaxing venues. You can be over fussed at many a Michelin starred restaurant which can lead to a stressed-out meal!

Ristorante Europeo Mattozzi in Naples delivered yet another memorable meal. In addition to having some 21 Campanian reds there was a decent selection of non-Campanian wines. However as this was my first visit to Campania give me a Piedirossa, Lacryma di Christi, a Taurasi, a Fiano, a Greco de Tufo or a Falanghia anytime!

Now here is seafood salad!: Photo Robert K. Stephen

The Insalata de Frutta de Mare was moist and tender and loaded with octopus.

The deep-fried eggplant and zucchini were prepared in a such a way their freshness was not hijacked by the frying.

The pasta with onions and beef is a Neapolitan speciality and it is easy to see why.

The Zuppa di Fagoli del cilento was generously packed with baby squid.

The Insalata Caprese with buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and basil was extra special due to the sweetness of the tomatoes and freshness of the cheese.

I’ll munch at Mattozzi anytime.
