Photographer's Note

Well, Lisa (delpeoples) has waited long enough.

Long before arriving in Naples, Lisa had advised me to visit her favorite Pizzeria in all of Naples. Its called Brandi's.

So my girlfriend and I did the usual thing, searched it online to get the location, and one of the VERY FIRST things we did in Naples was locate Brandi's Pizzeria.

We found it rather quickly, but it was closed, so we headed back again the next day. Now this is where it gets funny!!!

So this was our experience at Lisa's favorite pizza place....

We arrived and were sat down at a table by one of their servers. He gave us two menu's to read over.
I mentioned to Tosca how the menu seemed strange to me.
I was certain there were no 'main dishes' for pizza, only appetizers -very small pizza's. We continued on and didn't think much of it. So we decided on a couple of items.

When the server came back, we mentioned to him there didn't seem to be any main dishes on the menu, only appetizers and drinks. The server looked at us with a look of disgust and anger. He let out a very large and obvious sigh, took the menu from our hands abruptly, trying to show us the main dishes.

Then he got REALLY mad because he realized our 2 menus were missing 2 pages each!!!

He had already scribbled down some notes on his paper he was carrying - he let out some italian swear word loudly, ripped out the note paper from his pad angrily and crumbled it up and threw it onto the floor! lol

He then quickly ran away to give us 2 menu's with ALL the pages lol

Tosca and I were just looking at each other with amazement...we thought to our selves...are we on TV?
Is this a gag joke we're involved in? what's going on here? Is this for real???

To make a long story short, our pizza's arrived and they were pretty darn good.

BUT!!!
Tosca and I both agreed the BEST pizza in Naples was not Lisa's favorite Brandi's. It was the pizzeria that I have posted as my main photograph here today.

This is Trianon's Pizzeria. The owner of this small shop was an elderly gentleman, sat down with us for a long time. He explained the menu in full, was very kind, generous, interesting and genuine. It was a wonderful experience and the pizza was a 10 out of 10.

He let us take a photo of one of the cooks.

I even located Trianon's pizzeria on Google Earth, so Lisa can map it out the next time she visits Naples!

Hope you enjoyed the story!
