Al GrottinoAl Grottino
We are in the San Giovanni quarter, an area serviced by many means of surface transport and by the Linea A of the metro. The establishment is accessed by descending a few steps from which one can glimpse the pizza chef hard at work at his oven. The environment is warm and simple, with wooden tables and chairs and frescoes in the Pinelli style, in memory of those old-style “bottiglierie”, as explained on the sign outside of the pizzeria. The staff is courteous but not invasive and is not worried about a fast customer turnover at the tables. Do not be fooled by the beer list presented, the real one is on the tablet which you can request. The pizza, as the menu recounts: “Is not high nor low, it is Italian.” The dough is soft, not bubbly, but not gummy and the baking is homogenous. The “Casareccia” is pleasant, with the marriage of the concassé of tomato and the buffalo milk mozzarella added after baking. List of delicious ingredients to top your pizza as you wish.
