Naples, Italy: A Refuge Maybe, A TravelValue Definitely Not

Ristorante al Rifugio
Via San Gennaro Ad Antignano 119
80129, Naples Italy
+39 081 229 2213
Prices: €€€
Off of a small alley on a Vomero sidestreet, we found Ristorante al Rifugio, a Neapolitan trattoria where, normally, you get an excellent meal with not much of a dent in your wallet.

We started with the Friturra all' Italiana (€10), a fried assortment of croque (potato croquettes), arancini (rice balls), peperoni (bell peppers), and carciofini (baby artichokes). They were very tasty, light and crispy, not greasy, and the portion size was fairly decent.
Not all that hungry, I decided to go with one of my favorite secondi (main dishes), Salsiccia e Friarielli (local sausage and sauteed broccoli rabe - €10 + €4 = 14). There was not a lot of sausage to be had and the friarielli was on the tiny side as well, and, as I said, I was not very hungry, they were both quite tasty. I added a side of French Fries (€4) for shits and grins, bringing the total for my meal to €18.

My better half and her friend both had the same primo, Rigatoni Guanciale (€10 ea), pasta in a cheese sauce with bacon and pecorino romano cheese. They were quite happy with the dish based on the empty plates but, again, the portion sizes were small by Neapolitan standards.
Adding a 750 ml bottle of local sparkling water and a half liter of local vino rosso (red wine), we had a slightly filling lunch for a whopping €68 ... MAMA MIA!

A comparable meal with much larger portions came to less than €50 at a nearby trattoria, so this place is NOT a TravelValue.
