IN OUR PIZZERIA YOU WILL FIND UNIQUE AND AUTHENTIC FLAVOURS
From our elaborate menu, you can choose from pizzas for all palates, made with original pairings and choice ingredients.
Our chef, Claudio, has a great passion for pizza, and came up with the idea of the “Pizza of the Month”, created especially so that you can sample the authentic and real flavours of fresh, seasonal ingredients.
The farinata and traditional local dishes are also not to be missed, made from our home kitchen, along with our homemade desserts prepared with the same passion and skill.
The dough used for the preparation of our pizzas is one of our strengths, because it is thought through in every detail: we prioritize ease of digestion by opting forslow-rise proofing of the dough, and using a careful selection of flours. Beyond the quality of the products and ingredients, for us it is essential that whoever eats our pizzas need not feel heavy after their meal.
In our pizzeria you can also enjoy a delicious farinata, prepared according to the traditional Ligurian recipe, and using only fresh and authentic ingredients. The chickpea farinata is a traditional speciality of Genova, is gluten-free, and prepared with chickpea flour, water, extra-virgin olive oil and salt. It is cooked in a roasting pan, and bakes to a rich golden colour.
