Scaturchio - Pasticceria Napoli

Giovanni Scaturchio traditional confectionery since 1905

The rise of an icon

In the heart of Naples, at the crossroads between art and culture, where different styles and ages merge into a pattern unconfined by temporal or architectural borders, lies Scaturchio, the time-honoured pasticceria, a true “confectioner’s cathedral.” A continuum of tradition and modernity, situated in Piazza San Domenico Maggiore, Scaturchio represents a real Mecca for food experts and tradition lovers alike, a true institution in the art of confectionery. A tradition of the city for over a century, from coffee to aperitifs, from sweet to savoury.

"I opened the shop at seven in the morning and closed it at half past nine in the evening. My father would come to wake me every morning and say “Lillino, bear with me, get up!” That six foot man showed me such incredible affection."
