Pizzerie Eccellenti 2020
The word ‘essential’ is a concept well suited to this place. It was created by a group of young friends, and is located on the ground floor of a modern building. The furnishings are minimalist with soft lighting, Laguiole knives, a terrace sheltered by a wattle tree and a few well-spaced tables. In the background, you can admire the vineyards of the Colli di Luni foothills, and nearby are prestigious wineries and the Roman Amphitheatre. Aqua is also a restaurant, but there is no interchangeability with the pizzeria: they are two adjacent enterprises but separate from each other The glass showcases next to each other enclose the oven and the kitchen that are both open and viewable by the patrons. The menu is essential: eight traditional Neapolitan-style pizzas and then more elaborate and creative selections served and divided into individually topped slices. The flavor is remarkable: quality ingredients and a flawless dough that give you a fragrant pizza that is not crunchy; it has a high crust that is not gummy, and it is thin without being mushy. The pizza explodes in your mouth; it is ethereal and digestible. The service is attentive and elegant. A stop to this establishment is essential.
