Pizzerie Eccellenti 2020
The pizzeria Picoverde is situated in a beautiful location in Custoza. It is on a hilltop which dominates the underlying large park (with a swimming pool) and the Po Valley. Tasting the excellent pizzas which Giancarlo Tabarini prepares while appreciating the view below is priceless. Apart from the geography, the location boasts an important part in the history of the homeland: this is where battles were fought in 1848 and 1866. The service is friendly and polite. The ingredients are top-quality. During the winter you can eat a pizza with the Brocoletto di Custoza, a typical local Slow Food Presidia vegetable. Giancarlo Tabarini takes great care with the dough, letting it rest for a long time, which results in in an excellent balance between leavening and maturity. Organic flours from the old Mulino Rosso are favored here. Apart from the Custoza, we can recommend the Simpatica, and the Mexico. There is an ample menu of white pizzas and focacce. The wine list is full of local, Venetian, Italian and international wines. Just as rich is the list of beers, many of which are artisan brews.
