Ristorante Acqua Pazza
Restaurant
San Marco 3808/10, Campo Sant'Angelo, Venice; Tel.: 041-2770688
This restaurant originated from the desire to promote quality foods from Campania and the Amalfi Coast. All ingredients - fresh fish, mozzarella di bufala, etc. - are imported directly from Amalfi, and the suppliers come in three times a week to guarantee their freshness. Try the zitoni (fat pasta tubes) filled with olives, tomatoes, capers and garlic, or the wonderfully gummy gnocchi Sorrentino style. In nice weather, the tables outside on sunny Campo Sant'Angelo are a delight.

Caffe' Gambrinus
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Via Chiaia, 1/2, Naples; Tel.: 081-417582
There's plenty of good people watching at Caffa' Gambrinus, a palatial cafe on the monumental Piazza del Plebiscito that's open every day till 2 a.m. This Neapolitan institution has been serving local dessert specialties like baba' (a rum-soaked cake) and sfogliatella (a flaky, ricotta-filled pastry) since 1860.
