Pizzerie Eccellenti 2020
Let’s be honest. Upon arrival, located in a modern piazza, and dominated by modern buildings, one does not expect to find a traditional pizzeria here. Then you enter the place, and the “warmth” of tradition begins to sink in. As soon as you walk inside, your eyes will fall on the pantry full of local, high-quality products and then, when the pizzas arrive, they eliminate any doubts. Excellent pizzas are made thanks to the perfect dough leavening, I’d like to say, dough “ripening”. There is a novel pizza proposal, the “ruccolo”, a sort of pizza without a crust, which is actually strongly tied to the local history of the area. It well represents the proverb that states that there is no greater innovation than investing in tradition. We noted and appreciated the attentive, courteous and helpful staff. The wines and beers are up to standard with what is served from the oven to the table. It is also well-worth getting lost in the tasting and selection of various cheeses and cured meats. You can select delicacies from a refrigerated counter that looks like a treasure chest filled with the most precious Italian and, more specifically, Lucanian gastronomy. In conclusion, it is a surprising find; a definite must.
