Pizzerie Eccellenti 2020
This little neighborhood pizzeria understood how to market itself as a pleasant stop along the Aurelia, between Sarzana and La Spezia. During the weekends they do mostly a takeaway business. The longer waits will in any case allow you to appreciate, by reading the menu, the use of quality ingredients, with notable local products from the surrounding area such as lard from Garfagnana, cheeses from Cornazzano or the cured meats from Pignone. You perceive the sensation of a traditional bakery in the proposed crostini that are topped in various ways. This is also true of the pizzas which are fragrant and soft at the center, with a crunchy and bubbly high crust. At times the layout and the toppings should be reworked, but it is completely digestible thanks to the long leavening times for the doughs, some made with alternative flours. Beyond the gourmet seasonal pizzas created by the pizza chef, you absolutely must not miss a taste of farinata. It is hot, melty and represents the heart of the Ligurian tradition. The service is lively, at times a bit out of breath, but it is efficient.
