PIZZA

Where Turin - - DINING -

A Casa di Pul­cinella

An in­for­mal lo­cale which, as its name sug­gests, serves a fab­u­lous Neapoli­tan pizza, ac­com­pa­nied by a wide se­lec­tion of craft and other beers. Thanks to a nat­u­ral, slow- leav­en­ing process, the pizza dough is light, tasty and easy to di­gest. In­gre­di­ents in­clude the clas­sics for which Neapoli­tan pizza is renowned but also those of tra­di­tional Ital­ian re­gional cui­sine, rang­ing from a Margherita topped with Bu­fala Cam­pana moz­zarella to a ver­sion with Mon­calieri sausage. Open Tues-Sat 12pm- 3pm/6.30pm-10.30pm. €€. www. acasadip­ul­cinella.it. Corso Ros­selli, 82.
