On via Diocleziano 67, the restaurant is at the corner of a recessed laneway just up from Via Cavalleggeri d'Aosta (the street which leads to the train station). The six tables, of various sizes, seat a total of 26 people. The menu is displayed on a blackboard on the back wall opposite the entrance. The prices are not shown; however, we found them very reasonable and so ordered whatever we liked along with house wine. The dishes were freshly made to order (you can watch don Vittorio prepare and cook if you have a table opposite the entrance to the kitchen). The service was relaxed, so bring your patience. We did notice an order of precedence in the service: first - known, regular customers, then - take-away, and finally - strangers. The service was polite and professional but little more, and also depended on which waiter was serving that night. Praise to Alfredo who was welcoming and pleasant to everyone; his colleague could learn. The restaurant opened at 7 p.m. and by around 8 p.m. could be full given the small number of seats, its popularity and central location. (Note that it is closed on Sundays; otherwise, hours were Monday to Saturday, lunchtime, and dinner 7 p.m. till 11 p.m., but check.) Since the surrounding area was mainly residential, there were not many other restaurants. As Cucina Tipica is one of an ever-declining number of traditional trattorias (unfortunately being replaced by ubiquitous and monotonous pizzerias), we ate there on several occasions during our stay at the Hotel Cristiana nearby. Though the menu was limited, there was sufficient choice for several nights of trying different dishes and reordering those we especially liked. Dining there was a memorable highlight of our visit to Naples and environs after a day of sightseeing. We spoke some Italian, and so had no problem ordering; I have noticed that all the other TripAdvisor reviews are in Italian, so some prior knowledge of the language would probably help you. Buon appetito e buon divertimento!

It was not as good as others wrote. The spaghetti bolognese had so little meat but they charged 8euro. With this price we had a really meaty and delicious hamburger at a proper steak house nearby! Also, the dishes did not look or taste very good. I mean they were ok but when it comes to Italian standard they were quite below average.

I came here with my boyfriend for a quick dinner before a concert at the nearby arena. The restaurant is on the corner of the "main street" and is super tiny. The staff was nice and accommodating. We came around 7:30 on a Friday night and it was just us and another tourist couple. We each had a starter and a main course, a bottle of wine and sparkling water, and 2 bottles of the house wine to go, and the bill was about €35. Amazing deal for great food! I was tempted by their sign of the meatballs causing feelings of nostalgia and happiness, so I had a couple of those. (Maybe I'm biased, but they were not as good as my Calabrian grandmother's). Still tasty, though! My boyfriend had the baccala and he loved it!

Very good local small trattoria. Looks like a country style, but located in a big city.
Very fresh and good food.
Only one but serious problem: 0-level of English of the team.
After you ordered something from the Italian menu, you can be surprised with the meal (in our case it was octopus instead salat with vegetables.
But all our meals were very good, specially soups, and very cheap.
Strongly recommended.
