Why is pizza at Pasta E Vino so popular? “We have our own pizza sauce and work exclusively with fresh products,” says owner Corbelia Falsone. The pizzas are traditionally baked in a stone oven, which makes them “really crispy”. The restaurant is also a family business. Corbelia Falsone: “My husband has 30 years of experience as a pizza baker, he comes from Sicily.” That is why the house’s special pizza is “Pizza die Scaccia” – named after the Sicilian place of origin of the pizza baker. The pizza is topped with anchovies, olives, capers, onions and pecorino (cheese made from pure sheep’s milk).
And what do the participants in the survey say? “There you are served Olympus by a pizza and all that in a super nice atmosphere,” writes an obvious fan on Instagram.
