  2. Well, i know it must be close to meal time since this post made me very hungry. Ever since I saw the movie Eat, Pray, Love I’ve wanted to travel to Italy and eat my way through the country. Italian food is my favorite fare!

    I just wanted to take the time to say hi and let you know what a fabulous job you did with this post. Your site is a great resource! Have you eaten at all these restaurants? Which was your favorite?

    • Hi Jackie,

      Thank you for the great feedback, I really appreciate:)

      To be honest with you, I’ve never seen the movie you’ve mentioned, but I will definitely put it on my bucket list!

      I am glad you like the article, thank you for the kind comment!

      I went to Naples a few time, and I’ve eaten in some but not all of them. The ones I’ve been are the Tandem and the Sorbillo. These are excellent restaurants! The Sorbillo has the tastiest pizza in Naples, but it gets crowded very fast, and most of the time you need to do the queue for about an hour.

      The Tandem is also a fabulous place to eat, and as the Sorbillo, they get crowded very fast as well. If you want my opinion, their “Ragu” is a must to try!

      Thank you again for the comment and wish you a wonderful day!
