Gran Caffè Gambrinus
Via Chiaia 1/2
Grand bar of Naples – exquisite inside and lively outside.
Established in the late 19th century, this marbled café in the most elegant San Giuseppe area of the city-centre was a favourite for writers, artists and musicians from the start; Oscar Wilde and Enrico Caruso, for instance, spent many an hour here. With its beautifully decorated rooms and antique tables, this is the spot for a fragrant espresso, a delicate pastry, a delicious aperitif – or take your refreshment outdoors and view the life and glories of the Piazza del Plebiscito.
