We came across this restaurant by accident,by just walking around in this run-down but lively part of town. Very glad we did.

None of the two of us spoke Italian, but we got by with a helpful waiter who sat down next to us and was very keen to find out all about us as we were English.

The pizza was absolutely excellent, in fact, the best we had had in Italy. It's definitely worth a visit if you are in the area or perhaps like us ,on your way to Pompeii.

All up, it was around €35 for 2, but this included a bottle of wine, water, bread, service and 2 shots of grappa. all in all a very good Italian experience.

I literally stumbled upon this Pizzeria while walking back to my B&B, didn't even know it is ranked # 1 on Tripadvisor.

Well, I don't really know how these rankings do matter, here the situation is very simple: the Pizza is sincerely outstanding.
Indeed, it is certainly possible to enjoy a great pizza also at the renowned pizzerias in the "centro storico" nearby. Yet, the huge crowd gathering there, the chaotic and frenzy atmosphere, the waiting line and the limited time you are actually given to eat, may truly spoil your meal.

At "Da Gaetano", instead, I've been very warmly welcomed, and treated with exquisite manners.
Follow my tip, it's definitely worthy to walk just a bunch of steps away from Via dei Tribunali and reach Porta Capuana, where "Da Gaetano" is located. You'll not regret it. You will be likely to have all the time of the World to taste a perfect pizza like no-other. No one will spoil your little intimate gastronomical bliss.

This is the most authentic and fresh pizza that I have ever had. The ingredients were made fresh and the pizza cooked in an authentic brick oven. This is a must eat place when visiting Naples.

We saw the reviews and went to experience this place. We were very happy that we did! After a funny experience trying to tell them what we wanted, we finally all came to agreement. We saw him make and cook our pizza, and it was DELICIOUS! Also only $4.50 euros! Wow! Hidden gem for the birthplace of pizza. Brush up on your basic Italian - very simple things - to avoid any issues, if you want. However, they worked so hard to help us communicate with them, that it really doesn't matter. Nice people. I wonder if they know this rating exists?
