San Lorenzo: Trattoria Pizzeria Cellini

Piazza del Mercato Centrale 17-18r , Phone: 055.291541

Closing day: Monday

Reviewed by: Geralyn from CT, review #1414

When: 2005

Outdoor and indoor seating, wood oven pizzas and calzones, seafood; every choice was excellent.

On the same piazza as Trattoria Za-Za and with a more extensive menu. At 7:30pm we had to wait for an outdoor table. Our teenage sons loved the insalata di polpo; they order octopus and squid at every opportunity, and these servings were large platters of marinated octopus with olives, onions and herbs. Very tasty. They followed with farfalle al salmone (a new favorite) and linguine ai calamari, and ate every bit. Another of us had an unusual dish of gnocchi with mussels; a very large serving that also was very good. My Tortellini de Medici (cream, ham and peas) were excellent. For 6 of us: a primi and secondi each plus 1 liter of house white, 2 liters of acqua, fantas and cokes, and coperto, the bill totaled 123,60 -- a true bargain given the size of the portions. An excellent meal right outside of the house where Cellini spent his early childhood -- check out the placque on the building.
