When it comes to Italian food, Naples surely has something to say: food in Naples is more than just sitting around a table and eating, it’s almost a ritual made of repetitive gestures, traditions and habits carried on for generations.
Cooking in Naples and the Campania region is a way to express love and gratitude, and food is one of the main gatherings for people — the other is soccer.
None of the ingredients used are crazy expensive because the Neapolitan cuisine is all about seasonal, fresh, local and cheap foods.
Throughout this 4-course dinner set on a beautifully decorated dining table, Chef Amato will be explaining the stories behind the dishes, and what makes them so unique.
The dim atmosphere, vinyl record music, and fragrant smells will take you to Italy, Naples, and back, in one night.

Architect & Food Lover, Proudly Born & Raised in Naples (Italy’s most vibrant city)
I grew up being fascinated by my mom's simple home cooking, as using only locally grown products (mostly by my grandfather & local farmers) & traditional flavors.
I’m an architect, interior designer & art director, but I do enjoy cooking at home & host dinners with old & new friends.
Having them around my modest table, as creating connections & entertaining with funny stories, authentic food, fragrant smells & yummy flavors makes me quite happy.
I also enjoy food-shopping in organic food markets, grew & harvest my own vegetable garden (especially in spring/summer) making fresh pasta sometimes, baking and show-cooking for my friends.
Living in a vibrant & creative city like New York, gave me the motivation & inspiration to share my passion with the world, in a more tangible and committed way.
Join me and my culinary Neapolitan “journey”.
