Grandi Pizzerie 2020
89° - Archestrato di Gela
The pizzeria of the Chifari family has conquered the Palermo locals, so much so as to be considered among the best in the city. Located in the Libertà district, it pays homage to the name of a Siceliot poet from 330 B.C. who was considered among the first food and wine enthusiasts. The environment is welcoming and the dining room staff are attentive and fast. From the open kitchen, it is possible to admire the mastery of the chef. After spending years of study and research on leavened products, Pierangelo Chifari has gained a certain sensitivity for the preparation of the dough. Instead of using 00 flour, he uses a semi whole-wheat mixture with stone-ground type 1 flour and Sicilian durum wheat. The pizzas are crunchy, well hydrated and highly digestible. For pizza connoisseurs, you can opt for the tasting menu divided into for 4 tastings: pan, Roman, shovel and fried pizza. Great attention is also put into the ingredients used for the toppings, selected according to what is in season. The wine and beer lists are interesting and well-structured.
