I'm from Chicago and have been to New York several times. I've been to several places that people claim have the best pizza. None of it compares to the classic Napoli pizza made here. There was a long wait outside before being seated, but it was worth it for the best pizza! Highly recommended!

We had dinner during our stay in Naples. A really good Neapolitan pizza. Many pizza options to choose from.
The staff is friendly and attentive and the interior is beautiful.
Despite the crowd outside (we had to wait for almost an hour) the atmosphere is almost tranquil.
A nice gesture was the treat that they offered to people waiting. A very simple but mouthwatering pizza dough fried balls topped with tomato sauce.

We came her due to the rather hushed reverence surrounding the place, along with recommendations in the Guardian and elsewhere. We had a very nice meal, but I'm not convinced it was markedly better than the other excellent pizza places we ate at by chance in Naples (and which, to my shame, I didn't note the names of).
Starita has clearly hit a winning formula as there was a big crowd out the front. You get a number, wait your turn and then are ushered through a surprisingly large interior before being slotted into one of many tables. I had a Sicilian pizza which consisted of aubergines and cheese. In Neapolitan style, the interior of the pizza is soft and the crust is puffy and raised. Fans of Plymouth's "Positano" will recognise the style.
All in all, a nice meal. Is it one of the best pizzerias in Naples? Not convinced.

Went here on the back of a Guardian review and the fact that it was open on a Sunday. If you want to eat in a nondescript, multiple bland roomed establishment then this is the eatery for you. Pizzas were average at best - catering for such a huge numbers of diners makes it feel like a fast food outlet. Unbelievably there were queues of people waiting to get in as we left. Wish we had made for any one of the number of small, busy pizza places that were near to the Spanish quarter where we were staying.
