We were told by our van driver that Pintauro had one of the best sfogliatelle in Naples. He was right. It was the best sfogliatella I have ever had.

Stopped in to Pintauro on a very busy Saturday night on Toledo, there was a short line but it moved fast enough. Would have been faster if we realized that you pay first then get your stuff, a couple of wily Italians behind us passed...us to pay while we dawdled at the pastry case. Nevertheless the pastries were outstanding. I had a sfogliatelle riccia that was hot from the oven, then sprinkled with powdered sugar that exploded all over my jacket when I took my first bite. Who cares, it was delicious. The layers were crusty and crunchy with a beautifully creamy ricotta inside. For a couple of euros, not to be missed. No seating, you must take your goodies and skedaddle.More

Trawling the ‘hood comes with consequences, as to where to satisfy one’s sweet tooth. This is well recommended and particularly for its baba and sfogliatella. Stupendous.

My husband and I stopped at Pintauro to try their pastries on a Sunday morning. Apple maps says they are closed on Sundays but they were open and had already run out of babà by 11am. This little bakery is popular for locals to grab...a few or a dozen pastries for family gatherings. The line inside was a little chaotic with only one man at the register and another packing up the orders. They are wrapped in their signature paper with a pretty bow on top so the powdered sugar sprinkled on does not get everywhere. The baked goods are delightful no matter which one catches your eye.More

The sfogliatella was wonderfully done, with light and flaky layers and great taste. We visited based on a Rick Steves' recommendation and was fearful, when we saw another stop a couple blocks away...a street stand, that was overflowing with tourists...only to be welcomed at Pintauro...with a small crowd and friendly service. A must stop when in town.More

The title says it all: I had an awful lot of sfllogliatellas while in Naples and for me this is the absolute best! The filling was incredibly balanced, didn’t taste excessively citrusy, and it has less cinnamon than the others I had. Pastry is absolutely...gorgeous: golden and crispy, perfectly layered and not too greasy. I don’t know if they always do this, but mine was taken out of the oven just some minutes before I popped in so it was still warm (making it even better). Baba is drizzled with syrup to order so it’s not excessively wet and alcoholic (as opposed to the others I had where the strong taste of alcohol nearly got my tipsy). The cake itself is soft and tender with a bubbly flesh and golden exterior. The best I’ve had to. I vividly recommend a visit to Pintauro!(also because the shop is rather picturesque)More

All pastry shops at Napoli are very, very good. Some are specialized on certain types of sweets, despite the fact you can find great sfogliatelle and babàs all over the city. Excellent place for a coffee and a sfogliatella.

Checked it another day for baba (1.50euro) and a couple of other things to take, the average price per piece is 2 euro. I would say, it was not extremely good, there are a lot of better places. Merengue was not dried inside, and the...choice of sweets is not that big.More

We stopped here on the way back to our ship. Very centrally located on Via Toledo near the Galleria Umberto. You must try this Neapolitan pastry filled with ricotta. YUM

We hunted down this pasticceria on the basis of a recommendation and it was certainly worth it. Situated along Via Toledo just north of the Galeria Umberto, Pintauro is a truly excellent cake shop with friendly service and wonderful, wonderful sfogliatella.
