What they say about us
BBuona Pinsa and ancient Roman tradition.
Pinsa may be perceived as similar to widely known Pizza, but it is actually very different.
Pinsa has a very ancient and traditional history, rooted back in Roman Empire. It’s very different in terms of dough: the flour mix, the leavening process, the high % of water, the double cooking as per Roman tradition, the shape (Pinsa comes from “Pinsere” which in Latin means “to stretch”, “to spread”).
As a result, Pinsa is oval shaped, fragrant and cruncy outside, bubbly and soft inside. It’s also lighter and more digestible than Pizza.
And we can proudly say that the pride in our roots has been rewarded, our restaurant is #1 in Oxford according to Tripadvisor and Oxford Mail.
IT'S GOOD TO B ITALIAN
LOVE IS THE SECRET
Food has always been a way to show affection for Italian culture.
Love for ingredients which have the taste of sun inside them, for traditions that are often a family legacy passed down over time, for recipes that even if modernized are always very respectful of where they are coming from, for the right time that in the kitchen you have to wait for with patience so that things can turn out great as you want them to be.
MORE THAN ITALIANA...ROMANA
Pinsa comes from Roman tradition, so it’s not only Italian but it’s a very local specialty with its own tradition, recipe and processing.
