Naples, Italy: Malinconico Translated - Good Neapolitan Cuisine At Low Prices

Trattoria Malinconico
Via Giovanni Paisiello 1
Naples, Italy
Prices: €€€€

For my first course (primo), I had Pasta e Fagioli (€4), a dish my grandmother used to make me growing up and one of my favorites. Ingredients are pasta of one sort or another and white beans in a tomato-based broth or sauce. In this case, the pasta was a combination of several pastas - fettucine, farfalle, penne, and others - broken into small pieces and cooked al dente. They used small white beans, but the sauce had some tomato as a base, but was creamy, likely combined with panna. It was a large portion and was quite delicious.
My wife ordered Mozzarella in Carrozza (€5), a Neapolitan specialty where a thick slice of mozzarella is placed between two slices of white bread, dipped in egg and breadcrumbs, then fried to a crisp golden brown. Eaten with a knife and fork, the melted mozzarella oozed from each piece as she joyfully devoured every bite. She also added a contorno (vegetable), which in this case was marinated carrot slices.

For my main dish (secondo), I had the Cotoletta (€6), a thinly sliced steak covered with breadcrumbs, then pan-fried in EVO to a crispy perfection ... HOOAH! The only bummer was that they offered no potato option to accompany my main. 
I added two contorni, the Peperoni (sauteed bell peppers - €3) and Mellenzane (eggplant - also €3). Both portions were massive, the peperoni a mixture of thinly sliced yellow and red bell pepper, and onion and the melanzane in small slices, also with some onion, but with local cherry tomatoes from the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. The combination of the peperoni and melanzane with the EVO they were sauteed in was to die for.

Of course, you get delicious thickly sliced Neapolitan bread which came in handy for dipping in both the pasta fagioli and EVO infused with the peperoni and melanzane. Plenty of garlic was available in everything.
Adding a 750 ml bottle of local sparkling water and a half liter of local vino rosso (red wine), we had a delicious, filling lunch for under €30.
