Description: The chocolate manufacturer master The king of Neapolitan chocolate is...
The chocolate manufacturer master The king of Neapolitan chocolate is undoubtedly Gennaro Bottone, who since 1979 has delighted the tastes of Neapolitan people with some products that put together the handicraft honesty, the fantasy and the creative art. For this reason Bottone's firm is called Dolce Idea "Sweet Idea". In confirmation of that the chocolate is seen as a chalk to shape according to the taste of the customer and to the fantasy of pastry-cook. This has been a winning choice, seeing that Bottone's firm, even if young, has already received many national and international prizes for its seriousness and quality. The packaging also is attended in every detail, a complicate word which indicates only the boxing up of the product, because even if the substance is the most important thing, the shape can not be neglected. So "Dolce Idea" has recently had a working of restyling by Rotella's studios, which has created a sober and harmonious collection of white boxes, with a sample logos of cacao's branch. They are used instead blue and red boxes for the Panettone and the Pandoro. The people who want distinguish absolutely themselves can have exclusive and personalized boxes. It s a way not to forget the ancient tastes and colours mixed to a touch of modernity. At the end This is not only a sweet idea, but also a tasteful idea, because the tastes and the eyes can not be nourished only with series' products.

Went to this chocolate shop with my daughter on a school field trip. They are very informative and showed the children (and us parents and teachers) how they put the presents in the chocolate eggs! Their chocolate is VERY GOOD!!!!

Who would have thought that some of the best chocolate I have ever tasted would be found in Naples? And the tartuffo ice cream is to die for. Well worth the trip to the Vomero!
