This is definitely one of the busiest coffee strips in the city, especially during the working week. One of the long standing cafés located here is Bar Nocciolina. With its Italian flair, this little coffee bar has made its mark in this coffee city. It is the home of the true Italian espresso and cappuccino ,with the flare and charm that is truly Italian.

Atmosphere: Napoli 

This small, cosy bar has a relaxed, la vita e bella kind of vibe. The pictures on the wall of the italian ‘prince of laughter’ Toto‘ are a nice touch and give this place the Italanità of bella Napoli. The local radio is playing softly in the  background, the morning paper is waiting to be read and there is the sweet smell of coffee in the air! A nice relaxing way to start the day. Take a seat at the bar like one of the regular customers, or a comfortable table seat by the windows ready for some people watching.  Stop at Nocciolina for breakfast, lunch or an after work apero, you will be sure to get good food and friendly, welcoming service.
This café is the perfect location for a work meeting, a catch-up over coffee with friends and for a date!

Espresso rating 

The espresso here screams out ‘Femmena’ – it had beautiful layer of cream, a sweet, nutty aroma and a lovely strong dark chocolate look.. all the powers of female seduction in one little tazzina. This espresso will draw you in and as you taste her, she will leave you with that soft, delicate bitter bite to make sure that she is not easily forgotten.  Bar Manager and Barista Ilaria extracts the coffee from the beautiful La Marzocco coffee machine with perfection. The coffee served here is from Caffen roasters in Napoli, Italy. Espresso, cappuccino, macchiato, caffe freddo, and even the flatwhite. You will be guaranteed a coffee,  smile and that warm Italian welcome.
