Knowing the typical Neapolitan products and what to eat during your holidays will give you the opportunity to know in advance what to taste among the Neapolitan delicacies: pizza, casatiello, Neapolitan tarallo, mozzarella, limoncello, Babà, Neapolitan Pastiera, the sfogliatella, the struffoli, and as we call it in Naples "o' Cafè" (coffee). In fact here it is a tradition to drink this beverage. There is the habit of always offering coffee to the brother, to the friend and often also to the stranger. This custom will be never interrupted even in serious economic difficulties. And a real Neapolitan knows this, who sometimes even leaves the coffee suspended, that is, he pays coffee to the next bar customer.
