1 - Carminuccio in Mariconda

A real institution in the city, invaded by Salernitana fans at the exit of the Arechi Stadium, "Carminuccio" prepares simple pizzas but with a unique taste. Founded in 1982 as a small wood-burning oven, which worked only with the take-away service, today it is part of the culinary history of Salerno.

The place is spartan, the tables have a simple style, the atmosphere is that of the village festival and the pizza comes served on a disposable sheet. All this makes Carminuccio more a sort of Salerno street food than a classic pizzeria, even if this perfectly reflects the typical and joyful local atmosphere.
