Dine With a Local in Naples

A privately curated meal in the company of a local food expert. 

Guided by a local expert, guests weave through the alleys of Naples, browsing food shops or markets before enjoying lunch or dinner at some of the city’s acclaimed cucina napoletana restaurants.

Food is a major aspect of Italian life and eating out is a cultural expression of that lifestyle. This is an experience not to be taken lightly.

Italians are proud of their cuisine, and it’s important to understand the dining culture when eating al ristorante in order to make the best of the experience. 

Learning about local culinary tradition and eating out in Italy is essential to make the most out of your travels. There’s no better way to do this than sitting at the table with a local.

    Casa Mia Tours helped us fall in love with Naples! It was like wandering through the city with a friend, pausing here and there to learn a bit about the history, traditions and customs of the city and of course eating all the wonderful food. As it was a private tour we could do and go wherever we fancied and we loved it!
