Torino: St. Thomas Break

Torino


Reviewed by: JDeQ from Canada, review #2944

When: 2008

Some say this is the best pizza in Torino. We can't make that statement (not having tried all the others) but we can declare the pizza to be amazing!

Directions: The cafe is on the pedestrian only street Via San Tommaso off of Via Garibaldi

In her book the Civilized Traveler's Guide to Turin, Eugenia Bell makes the claim that the best pizza in Turin is available from this take out spot off of Via Garibaldi. It is a very small operation - closet sized really, but clearly quite popular judging by the crowds lined up outside to get their slab of hot pizza.

It is located off of Via Garibaldi on Via San Tommaso. Walking away from the Palazzo Madama on Via Garibaldi turn left at the second side street. The cafe is up ahead on your right. If you can't find it by scent alone, you'll likely find it by the crowds.

When it is your turn you force you way inside and indicate which slab of pizza you'd like. The pizza is fresh, hot, and very well made using fresh ingredients. I ordered a huge slab of sausage and cheese pizza which came with homemade sausage meat bursting with wonderful fennel flavour. The pizza and a bottle of water came to 4.50 euro - a cheap lunch.

For dessert there is a good gelato spot across the street from the cafe.
